  1. So the word direct from the Mad Musher themselves as of the day of this post is: We are now open during the week for lunch, our hours Monday to Thursday 11am to 4pm Friday 11am to 9pm thanks, steve
  2. Since it is unknown if MM is open during the week for food we will probably stop at Porterville Diner on our clockwise loop. That way we take B back to BB. I found MM's website so I'm going to email them directly and stop trying to hijack this thread.
  3. I found one that has three loops on it keeping between Whitney and Pembroke. I also found the map referenced above. Thanks. One of the reasons we travel is the quality of the trails in the area. My local club has our trails riding great also but there is nothing like going to District 6. We love the area.
  4. My wife and I will be staying near Barry's Bay next week for our annual snowmobile trip. Riding Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I plan on doing the loop south and west to come up to Whitney to the Mad Musher for lunch (but now I read it might be closed during the week?) then across east back to BB on the Tuesday. Any suggestions for loops centred around BB/Wilno? We are staying at the Mountain View Motel again so that is our base for the week. Thanks for any feedback and I will do another trip report like I did the last two years.
  5. So the Mad Musher is only open on Fridays and Saturdays? That sucks. My wife and I will be in Barry's Bay during the week for our annual snowmobile trip and we were planning on doing the loop with the MM for lunch one day. We are sledding Tuesday through Thursday. Can't do that if it's closed. I always wonder why people don't post their hours on their websites. It is just bad business to not give your potential customers the information they need. If they are closed during the week is there anywhere else near there to get a decent lunch during the week?
  6. And here I was looking for something to do this Sunday. See ya tomorrow!
  7. Thanks for the replies. I went out Tuesday but as was stated before, it was windy and drifting in behind the groomer. It was still fun. Hope this rain only serves to pack what we have and doesn't get rid of it. You hear different stories about riding closed trails. I usually stay off of them until they are at least listed yellow. I'm in Sarnia and trailer my sleds out to a friend's place near Forest or farther so information helps. The field we use to get to the trails was deep and fun.
  8. Since this is the "official" forum for our club I'd like to know where everyone is? Is there somewhere else to get information on trail conditions and general "what's going on" in our area for out favourite sport? (I don't mean the once a day updated OFSC interactive trail map. I mean eyes on people who have been out there.)
  9. OUCH! No. Can't say I've done that. I figured it out today. The handlebar came around and smacked me in the ribs then I hit the ground. It will be three to four weeks before I get on a sled again. Gives me time to order my new handlebar and such.
  10. Home again. I can't ride so we came home early. Monday was great until the end. Mountain View Motel: The owners are great people. They offer a great breakfast. The room was clean. We would go back there again. Very snowmobile friendly. Wilno Tavern: This place has great Polish food and Tuesday night is blues night. We went there the Sunday we got in and last night. The trails in the area are well signed and were in good condition considering the weather. The local club does great work. In conclusion, we both left there thinking we would come back again.
  11. Base is good. Could really use some more snow for the groomer though. We did 80 miles today.We went from the motel into Barry's Bay. Fuel at the Esso. A visit to the BMO since I had a moment of sometimers and forgot my MC pin. Headed out of town on the B102 on to the B to the 159 to the lookout. Then back to the B and headed to Madawaska. We turned around and took the 157 to take the other side of the B down to BB but I made a wrong turn and headed the wrong way. By the time we stopped to check we made it just north of Paugh Lake. So there we turned around and followed the B back to B102 into BB to the Esso again. Then my wife ran into the back of my sled by accident. Lucky the only damage was my snow flap bracket. I beat that back then carried on to the motel. The sleds ran hot for the beginning since they were being broken in again after the rebuild. We had to stop and let them cool a few times. After about 20 miles mine went right to were it should be for coolant heat. My wife's always ran a little hotter than mine and it still does. Hope I feel up for tomorrow. I fell off my sled while reversing. My throttle is touchy when in reverse and it kicked some power at the wrong moment.Bend my handle bar some. As far as the trails: They are excellent around here. Signage is plentiful. The lookout had a mailbox with maps in it. The local clubs that look after this area really know what they are doing and I thank them for their work. Doug, one of the owners of the motel we are at, was out on the groomer this morning.
  12. Made it to the motel. Had the best polish food ever at the Wilno Tavern. Sleds unloaded and ready for the morning.
  13. Good news! Thanks.
  14. Thanks for the report! My wife and I are headed to BB tomorrow (Sunday) and this is good news indeed.
  15. Packed and ready. We leave tomorrow morning for Barry's Bay with rebuilt sleds. We have to break them in so the first and second day are just taking our time.
