    Stop signs!!!

    I wish the boneheads who blew the stop sign on the Sequin on Friday could see the consequences of not stopping. Don't wish anyone harm ,but, when you get AIR over a rail crossing beside four stopped sleds ---- well FACK !!!! I am a retired first responder and I have seen the results of stupid. Wish the sledder well.

    Trail conditions

    Thanks 02 , We saw that a short while ago; it's a big one ! Gone now ! Four of us just came back from riding the Sequin and found every thing in tip top shape The northern portion of C where the hydro contractors are working is very hit and miss for snow on the trail .One section of about 100m is all mud ! Stay spaced out and go one at a time or go straight to the car wash ! We took the club trail back to Parry Sound and enjoyed that too . Thanks to Wild Bill for suggesting the Tappattoo ! We really enjoyed our stay there and will go back !

    Trail conditions

    Just wondering why the trails around and south of Parry Sound are yellow ? Are the lakes getting bad or is it a groomer problem? We are taking Bill's suggestion and are heading to Tapatoo on Thurs. and are looking forward to some easy riding cuz we'er old and need to feel safe ! Any body ride the lakes to the south of Tapatoo ? Do we have any alternatives to riding them in order to explore that area ? Any help is appreciated .
  4. We rode that trail on Thursday and my back is killing me . We know the groomer was going out on Thurs. night , I hope the weekenders get a better ride than we did. ! I would personally like to thank the asshats who are responsible for all the closures in the area ! Our ride to Whitney was very hit and miss as far as conditions go ; You groomer guys have a tough system to take care of --- Thank You !

    Thanks Rev-man , we are in the planning stages and the more info we get the more comfortable we get . I'm waiting for my sled to be released from it's badly needed maintenance appointment or we would be riding instead of typing !

    B trail Haliburton

    Thanks Paul. Our wives are very nervous about running the lakes , Is Haliburton Lake staked all the way and in good shape ? Cuz if it, is my gal will be on the bar with her e-tech just to get to the end ! LOL

    B trail Haliburton

    We are going to be sledding from Pinestone next week and were planning a run to Whitney on one of our days . The ITG shows RED from Eagle Lake to Guilford . Is this the only way to rejoin the B ? We are not real familiar with the area so an alternate route suggestion would be appreciated.

    Parry Sound trip

    Blake , Four of us also ran the Sequin and found it enjoyable Wed. Saw few sleds , you might have been one ! You are right about the fine rain - it was a pain and kept us slow. A note to all ----- The Super 8 is now just a place to sleep . There is no restaurant or Jolly Roger anything let alone a lounge or bar. You do get a continental b'fast with your stay. F*** ## ! Having not been there in a couple years we were very disappointed to find this out when we arrived. Their web site still lists the rest. ( Golden Griddle) and the Jolly Roger Bar as open .THEY ARE NOT ! The human we talked to, to book our rooms failed to inform. In complete fairness the specific question may not have been asked , but still ....... What's that ? Oh ya - Know before you go.

    I think we are going to take our chances . Drive up today and start riding tomorrow , hopefully things will firm up. Your groomer guys are key and we really appreciate all the hard work involved in making things happen ; cheers ! Thanks for the reply !
