  1. How many permits were sold last season?
  2. True as it stands now they do. The real focus on advertising needs to be a push to have the manufacturers advertise the trail system. They are the only real financial beneficiaries of our trail system. Volunteers pay with their time and money, the permit buyer pays for his pass, and the employees that get a cheque from the OFSC or clubs to groom do not make much. What we see is multi billion dollar multinational companies riding on the backs of the Ontario sledder and the OFSC to help sell their products. Every sled ad shows a goon jumping one over a hill on a trail, something we all know is dangerous and stupid. they should be marketing our trail system as a safe and fun place for families and touring sledders. If the trail system in Ontario were to fold, 85% of Ontario new sled sales would simply be gone. They are totally dependent upon the trail system to sell their product and it is high time this was pointed out to them.
  3. I cannot blame him for grinding out a living doing basically nothing. He found a platform and wormed his way deep inside it. Any volunteer would be happy to write about their area for free. No need to pay a guy to ride with permit money. But whom among us would pass on that deal?
  4. Ned Nickerson.

    If that is the case it would be max 25km to a crossing, not 50.

    Encore to last ride of the season.

    Being I am now living down south my expectations have been adjusted. I would like to see winter come and stay for 6 weeks, that would be nice.

    There are only two species of wolf in Ontario, the Grey, which is what you call the timber wolf(Canis Lupas), and the eastern which is much smaller(Canis Lycaon). they both live in packs with a male alpha that has a manogamous mate being the leader, these packs can be as large as forty and as small as five. You will see the 2 adults and also juvaniles as well as yearlings all travelling together.
