  1. Thessalon / Bruce Mines to Black Creek Outfitters / Aubrey Falls Check out the BM2 trail. This was a huge link for us about 20 years back, then it was shut down due to swampy / difficult terrain. Very happy to see it open again and a great opportunity to do the day loop from Elliot Lake to Black Creek to Thessalon to Iron Bridge to Elliot Lake.
  2. Camp It's always a treat to go to camp. Camp NIGHT Life at Big Basswood Lake.

    Sault Ste. Marie - 2018-2019 - Season

    Boost for the Sault Not directly related to snowmobiling, however, there was a $150,000,000 funding announcement in the Sault today. Looks like the Steel Plant is in it for the long haul. My daughter was hired on in June and started at $34 an hour. I am on the understanding there will be more hiring binges in 2019 which is great for the local econonmy and wonderful for someone wanting to move to the Sault. I've been here 20 years and love this city. Have also lived in Sudbury and North Bay. The Sault's my favourite. (photo courtesy of Saultonline.com)
  4. Some additional video footage, this time from north of Elliot Lake. We staged at Black Creek Outfitters on highway 129, then sledded down the Kindiogami.
  5. Very similar looking terrain and good eye. This bridge in the video is located on the Camp 8 Creek road near the Kindiogami Road north of Elliot Lake. There used to be a bailey bridge many years ago, but it was washed away and replaced by this make-shift wooden one. As part of yesterday's ride, we launched at Black Creek Outfitters on highway 129, then sledded down the Kindiogami Road for 35 miles to highway 546. From there, is a bush road that leads to the Camp 8 road, opening up a loop run using the Portelance road. Very interesting country with all these bush roads.
  6. What an Amazing Day ────────────── When you find a secret gem, what do you do? You keep going back. Another spectacular day of snowmobiling at Black Creek Outfitters on highway 129 where we racked up 160 kms today. Thank you Jean and Don for the wonderful hospitality including a tasty lunch, coffee and social chat. Looking forward to more visits this winter. Today's video attached below.

    How much snow actually fell?

    NO new snow in the Sault. Storm missed us.

    The parking lot was plowed, which was nice, otherwise would have had to 4 x 4 our way in off the highway. Once we hit the trails, it was 30-35 cms of snow.

    Sault Ste. Marie - Updates Now that all the Christmas Parties are out of the way, today, was the first free day to get out for a ride. We visited Mica Bay just off of Lake Superior and went east. On our way back to the Sault, passed 2 large trucks with sled trailers heading north.

    Merry Christmas!

    Halfway Haven info??

    Re: No Response From some of our pre-season visits to Halfway, I remember Sean indicating that he seldom runs power (generator) until needed and can go days before communicating. Once the big generator fires up at big dollars per day, he is ready for business. We have visited him every year for the past three years in pre-season. Our pre-season ride this year was Mile 67 due to closer proximity to Sault Ste Marie.

    Maybe one of you guys have an answer...

    Access to your Property Baylaker, a similar situation like yours occurred in Searchmont, whereas the property owner was 8 kms up the Whitman Dam road. He attempted driving on the Whitman Dam road, while it was the main OFSC trail and got stuck. In frustration, he then had the road plowed all the way to kilometre 8 of which became an issue for sledders during any thaw. In the end, both have to co-exist. The MNR indicated there was no restriction for the owner not to be able to plow the road. In your situation, municipality by-laws might be different. Here's a video of the stuck jeep. Its at the 14 second mark.

    Batchawana - North of Sault Ste. Marie One of my friends, Joe. L, has a camp in the Batchawana area. He also has a drone and posted this photo today looking towards Batchawana Mountain. Very nice place to have a camp.

    Sault Ste. Marie Updates Some fresh powder again overnight for parts of Northern Ontario. Approximately 12 cms of new snow last night at my house. On another note, there's a nasty washout (new one this year) ON the Domtar, east of the Domtar-Whitman Dam Road junction between Searchmont and Aubrey Falls / Black Creek. All due to the heavy rains this fall. City photo from my front porch this morning.
