Well we made it to Hornepayne & back today, nice ride, perfect temperatures for the sleds and for us .... scratchers mandatory at 9 am .... trail was like cement. No overheating or slider issues. One oops all day, Doris parked her sled on top of a brush pile .... by the time I turned around and found her, she had backed off it and parked on the trail, giggling her arse off .... so no action pics but a good chuckle though ! One or 2 spots where moisture is starting to cause issues with the trail, along Hwy 11, on the North side. Pics show it below .... Other than road crossings this is the only significant bare spot I could find .... right next to a dip in the trail, same one I found 3 weeks ago ... Here`s the dip, not serious yet, but you can tell it`s starting to sag again .... Another little water hazard .... you could fish in that hole I think .... I won`t be the first sucker to go on it though ... Pipeline on the South side of the 11, where the trail turns back into the bush towards the highway ... gettin`pretty skinny ...... Here`s the offending pile of brush, a coupla branches went flying, she just mashed the brakes and parked right up on the side of it .... from left to right. Backed off it and pulled away..... Nothing but cosmetic damage, coupla pieces of debris for proof .... and off we went again ... Here`s the only wildlife we saw ..... a snowbear riding on a Husky ..... Nice new looking unit .... don`t know why it was stalled on the side of the trail in the middle of nowhere .... Lots of lights, but not a single reflector to be found .... it`d be a grizzly surprise to mash into this at night !!! She`s got the MX-wannabe helmet, the backpack, she`s standing up .... just missing the handlebar risers and a can ..... Stopped at the warm-up shack on the return trip, heading out ..... .... waiting for me while I play Chinese Tourist ...... taking lots of pictures .... I almost missed it, I was passing a transport along the 11, for the second time after a stop-n-go road crossing .... then I remembered, and had to stop for this .... Total mileage after today, 2627 km for the season !!! So two milestones were reached this year.... 1 was to pass 2000km, did that with the help of IQTurbo, Sledjunk and apeXMAN; 2nd was to roll the old Bologne-slicer 670 over the 10,000km mark, with the help of my awesome wifie and very capable rider, Doris26 !!! Thanks to everyone who`s help made this an extra-ordinary season for me, whether it was just to chat online, or meet and have a drink together, or even to spend a weekend at a motel an hour from home, just because you`re so incredibly awesome to be around ... If this was to be our last ride of the year (and I hope we have one weekend left) it will have made a great season ending ride, a 330km day to end it all.... until next year !!!!
