    Speaking Of Boots, What About Socks?

    I wear some socks that are also a 100% synthetic blend, with 0% cotton. Currently they are an adidas brand from dunhams sporting goods. They are just a standard thickness, not any extra thick at all.

    Sault Ste. Marie - 2018-2019 - Season

    TY to all for the info!!! I know the trail status shows red, but have also heard (in previous years) it may not have been updated the quickest. So figured better to ask than take a chance. I did hear there is grooming g around GM in the U.P. But we would rather ride in D13 if possible. TY again!!!

    Sault Ste. Marie - 2018-2019 - Season

    Approximately how far north of the Soo would we have to go for groomed trails, WAWA maybe? Is there any grooming being done yet at all? We know it’s early still, but it looks like we could head up next w/e (14/15/16) if there are some open trails. Just figure if we can get a trip in, we will. TY!

    OFSC Online Purchasing for 2018-2019

    We definitely do get a better value with the exchange rate, and I do understand the $20 is for the courier. I just figured if my two buddies and I could combine the shipping, that would save us $40. I did get my trail permit on Wed or Thu (didn’t check the mail Wed). And today I found out there is a trail that has been reopened in D13, from Wharncliffe to Conacher Lake. That should add to the options we have on the guys trip and mix it up a little.

    Yes it is!!! We definitely do have an advantage in regards to the exchange rate. I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask, but if we have to pay the $20, it’s still an awesome value!!! Hoping for an awesome season!!! TY guys!!!

    OFSC Online Purchasing for 2018-2019

    Anyone from the states order one yet??? Is $20 for shipping normal??? I have never bought a season before, just the per day so didn’t know there is a shipping charge!!! Also, if there is a couple of us ordering, anyway to combine shipping? Or would we have to say all the sleds are in one persons name? TY!!!

    Well, Looks like if one more trip is possible, it won’t be until the w/e of the 23-25 due to things going on at home. Hopefully the trails will still be good from Searchmont north in a couple weeks!!!

    Definitely interested in a weather/trail update as a buddy and I (possibly another buddy) are kicking around the crazy idea of heading up probably next w/e. Doubt it will be this w/e. Not sure if we would stay the night in the Soo or Searchmont, but considering riding to WaWa from there the next morning. Riding around WaWa for a day, then ride back to the truck. What is the mileage from Searchmont to Halfway Haven? From HH to WaWa? Or maybe stay at Halfway??? Any suggestions on staying at HH or WaWa? We’ve never been north from the Soo toward HH. At this rate I should just start buying an extra early season permit!!! Lol TY!!!

    Dan, TY!!! I missed your post earlier somehow, sorry!!! We did have a good trip, even with the secondary mishap of my buddy’s sled. But it all worked out!!! You mentioned possibly the landing on Patten Lk, are you referring to the boat launch? Or coming off Chipman Lk? Could it be anywhere along the trail between Patten and Aubrey Falls? Or was there a spot on the way there you noticed it was gone? I will try to send a text to a couple of the guys who are still up there asking them to keep their eyes open. Cell service is very iffy, so hopefully it will go through.

    AC+YA We would consider leaving a truck with some gas cans in Searchmont, but I would guess it’s at least 2 hours from the cabin depending on the road conditions. We are out in the bush near Bass Lk and Carpenter Lk, and it takes at least 1 hour to get from the Soo to the cabin, longer if the roads aren't the best. I finally have my jerry can set up set up on my sled. Think this is V3 (lol), and I think it’s the winner. Adapting it to the tunnel rails of my F8 EXT worked out great!!! Easily removed if needed. So I’m set, just need to convince other to carry some fuel. TY for the idea though!!! And it sounds like you guys are all over the place up there which is awesome!!! I have been only going up a handful of years now, but the older guys who still trail ride don’t like to go as far as they used to. They are happy with 100-150 miles in a day, and back in camp for a nice dinner. I like to joke that we go up to eat, and snowmobiling is a bonus!!! It seems the jerk from the tssa shut down a lot of mom and pop stations!!! The hoops that Black Creek said they had to jump through was ridiculous!!!

    So true!!! I still haven’t rode the new(ish) Aubrey Falls/ Searchmont loop as a result of the lack of fuel in Searchmont. It’s about 55 miles to AF from the cabin, and 40 to Searchmont from the cabin, so the last thing guys want to do is possibly run out. I honesty would guess I can just make it from AF to Searchmont, and back to the cabin, but it would be close. That’s not counting the 3gal in my jerry can in case someone else needed fuel.
