    Thunder Bay - Kenora- Red Lake Trip

    I work in Thunder Bay much of the year. I tried to do this loop last year mid February. Got in touch with North West Ontario Snow Trail Association ( NWOSTA ) in Dryden late January via Facebook and they doubted the loop would be open due to the massive tree damage yet to be cleaned up. They have had more storms this year so check with NWOSTA for this years update. After driving by the road crossings for years one thing to caution you on is they only seem to groom the trails every few weeks. And apparently as of last year there is no Ear Falls Club so the Dryden to Red Lake rum is groomed sporadically .

    Boots! What do you recommend?

    Cabelas has a trans-Alaska boot on sale right now 100 $ off for 169$. Only sizes 8 thru 10 available in their Barrie store. I think Cabelas offers a lifetime warranty on their own brand but not sure that would apply to boots.

    Trailer decision

    I have had a trailer similar to the one Mike is robbing the Scotiabank above with, unless that is how you deposit your paycheque haha . No matter what the winter temperature is , the ceiling drips buckets of condensation. I put the 1/2 inch foam in and it worked awesome and although takes a bit of time is definitely worth it.

    Kirkland Lake to Cochrane

    While in Kirkland Lake on business a couple weeks back staying at Microtel, the front desk told me they were fining truck / trailer combos that were parked haphazardly $ 275 because they were unattended whilst the owner was in Hearst Timmins etc. Big parking lot there so I believe you are ok if check with front desk and leave license plate info.

    Abitibi Canyon Loop? Worth it? Opinion?

    Ok , I have a plan. Let’s all stick to that figure of $ 1000 to tell our better halves. Haha Although those of us that the Ms sleds with us can’t get away with that

    Abitibi Canyon Loop? Worth it? Opinion?

    Thanks for the info , that’s good to know . I do keep a close eye on fuel/ mileage/ range capabilities but have not filled it at the pump with the fuel light on

    Abitibi Canyon Loop? Worth it? Opinion?

    I wouldn’t try it with a vector without extra fuel. We left smooth rock absolutely topped up cruising at a steady 80 k and my fuel light came on prior to the east warm up shack and the Ms ‘14 Renegade Backcountry 800 made it the last 40 km after I borrowed her fuel. I wasn’t impressed

    Kirkland Lake to Cochrane

    We just got back from Cochrane 5 minutes ago. Trails are getting a little bumpy for 30 km out. Abitibi loop is still good. The best trail was A106C towards Timmins , but we just went 80 km , as far as the hwy. (itg shows red section but it’s open and groomed) Westway for sure

    Last ride of the season

    We drove from T Bay to Cochrane today. The groomer was east of Geraldton heading east at noon. All the way to Hearst wherever we saw the trail it looked mint. You guys will have a fast trip tomorrow.

    Cochrane March 30 - April 2

    Myself and Ms Buoy are going to head over to Cochrane early early tomorrow morning . Probably going to stay at the Westway although rooms are going quick. Is anyone going or contemplating going ?

    Caution / Warning - North Bay truck & trailer Blitz

    And to throw another wrench into it, our mechanics at work that deal with this stuff often, inform me that if the truck is stickered you cannot tow a trailer that is not stickered; even a small light duty trailer

    Caution / Warning - North Bay truck & trailer Blitz

    Yes , lots of questions still re yellow annual stickers on light duty trucks and trailers. A Hearst opp last month at a gas station told me I was “lucky “ he wasn’t giving me a ticket for no sticker , even after I pointed out his hood wasn’t latched which wouldn’t be good in a high speed situation
  14. FYI , 4 lanes southbound coming into North Bay it looks like a dozen opp are pulling over a number of truck & trailer combos ; enclosed sled trailers just like yours and mine. Probably leave a sour taste in many getting a charge on the last trip of the year.
