    First ride.

    I've heard that one of our illustrious brethren has already been sledding in Iceland. And no, it wasn't me.

    Heavy Boots?

    Yes, January 31, 2013. My dad bought us a brand new 1973 Polaris TC 175 Colt when I was 13. What a great little machine. I found and bought a 1972 model a couple of years ago. Gotta say I flatten out the suspension when I ride it.

    Heavy Boots?

    And the price is quite reasonable at Royal Distributing. I think about $130.

    Heavy Boots?

    Yep. I take them out occasionally. Maybe ten times last winter in 11,000 kms of riding.

    Heavy Boots?

    Measured my Baffin Titans. 15 inches high. 7.2 pounds for the pair.

    Heavy Boots?

    Baffin Titan for the past 4 years. Great boot. Will not hesitate to buy again when replacements are needed. Bought a pair for my wife last month.

    Great news for northern trails

    Good to see the government supporting tourism initiatives in the north - - especially for snowmobiling. Congratulations to those who worked hard to make this happen.

Destination Northern Ontario is getting support to develop a new snowmobile trail and digital francophone tourism initiatives. Federal funds totalling $230,000 from the Canadian Experiences Fund (CEF) are supporting the two projects. Of that, $160,000 will be used to develop a world-class snowmobile trail along Highway 11 north between Hearst and Temiskaming Shores, including the City of Timmins. The remaining $70,000 will support the development of a series of interactive itineraries for smartphone and tablet users that highlight the region’s francophone culture and experiential tourism opportunities. “I am grateful to the Government of Canada for this support, through FedNor, that will help us develop and grow the region’s francophone tourism offerings with the goal of attracting culture-seeking visitors, French-speaking tourists and immigrants to the North,” said David MacLachlan, executive director of Destination Northern Ontario, in an Aug. 29 news release. “And by developing a premier snowmobile region, we aim to make Northeastern Ontario the ultimate snowmobile destination that builds on our strengths: long, cold winters with an abundance of snow.” Destination Northern Ontario – formerly known as Tourism Northern Ontario – is the largest of 13 Regional Tourism Organizations (RTOs) funded by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The organization leads the development of tourism programming across the North.
  13. Thank you, Nunz and Karen! I enjoyed the party until I had to go home for my nap. Great seeing you guys along with your friends and family, including Slow Touring Guy, Mr. Secretary, iREVerent, Mr and Ms IQ Turbo, The Dutchman, Mr and Ms White Dragon, Mr and Ms Brappman, Mr and Ms Soupkids. (Not sure who else appeared after I left.) Best part was watching Nunz and friends gnawing the front off the Polaris cake.
