    Crystal lake question

    Is Crystal lake safe? marked in black? hoping to go to the twin mountains this weekend (Saturday).
  2. thanks for the info. So we are cruising along towards Lagoon city last afternoon hugging the edge and all of a sudden sled just looses all power and stops. We are say 1/2km out off shore and in a foot of snow. i tell myself it has to be the battery as there is no power, as nothing turns 'ON'. After a few mins of checking/meddling with the battery terminals, i start to go thru all the fuses one by one. all of them are good! WT#, now what. I try again to start and it purrs to life. that feeling of 'relief' is like no other. So we take the hint, call it a day and turn back, got home all good. checked everything again and came to the conclusion that a fuse was loose, and in my 'remove/replace' process it got seated back. lesson learnt, added some spare fuses into the tool bag + a copy of the 'Oh crap, i need help' list.

    Back on Pefferlaw river and Lake Simcoe up to Thora n back, lots of snow but wet. River was all bumpy after the weekend traffic.
  4. The other day we rode up from Georgina island to almost Lagoon City, was wondering if it is safe to ride across to the other side of Orillia to pick up the B112B.

    Rode with my wife along the Pefferlaw river to Lake Simcoe n up to lagoon city n back via Georgina island. Lots of snow on the lake. We came across only 2 cracks. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Will get out again on Sunday.

    End already ?

    too right ... it's melting all over again.
  8. $70 I have a new Auxiliary Power module for the Yamaha Snowmobiles which will give you 2 x USB and 2 x visor heater jacks (RCA). This is a plug n play for models newer than 2009, older ones you will need to tap into the accessory power wire.
  9. Just saying thanks to the party of 3 who stopped to help me and the wife out of the ditch in Pefferlaw on Sunday AM. Not sure how we ended up there but we did. Truly appreciate the gesture (so did my lungs).

    Couple of Gaspesie Questions

    @whits-end and others We are a newb couple and would like/planning to do the Gaspesie tour, if there is room would like to join a group as we've never been that way. (We have driven the Gaspesie loop in the summer though.) we are for the most part flexible on the dates at this early time. Would like to know more details though. Note, we are not fast riders, enjoy the outdoors kind of riders.

    Trip to Moosonee availble this year?

    Thx Xfirecat A quick update: Washrooms are/were decent, not heated but good. the comfort stations gave us a very appreciated break from the -25c cold. A big thanks to whoever who manages them. Base camp is expensive, but hey no biggy. Happy it was there as it was another comfort station for the ladies. A very enjoyable day on the trails though the canyon itself was all packed down, which allowed us to make plans to get up there again, maybe on a warmer weekend! The Base camp -> SRF was fast to say the least, though the 'stand up n ride' folks were passing us as though we were parked. A big thanks to the party that showed us the way, when we were kind of 'lost'

    Trip to Moosonee availble this year?

    thx for the updates ... Hoping to get up there on the Saturday (11th), we are taking gas cans just in case, given all the reports. Q1: Are there warm washrooms up there (base camp), the ladies are quite anxious about that! Q2: Trail conditions? i heard it was raining?
