True story

That crazy fella from Delhi that stayed in Kirkland lake for the winter. I wonder what happened to him. I am assuming he quit sledding

when his tabaco farm ran into trouble?

Don't know I haven't talked that guy in close to 10 yrs. I just googled his site and apparently he is still in the sled touring business.

 

OTC was actually a good site for the first yr but went down hill quickly after that.

He POed a lot of people.

 

Speaking of the northeastern Ontario area (specifically New Liskeard) does anyone know of a "Rottie" from that area. He was a good source for info from there.

New Liskeard... wow haven't heard of that place in a long time. There was a guy named Porky Waters from New Liskeard who competed in horse shows way back and drove all the way down to southern Ontario on weekends for it regularly.

It's called "Karma" :D :D :D

 

The next time someone tries what they did, we won't be as nice :)

 

Once the story got out about what (and how) they did, a lot of people turned their backs on them. Then they turned their backs on each other..

Bosscat is a great guy. And a standup guy. We had a lot of fun on this board! Tons of fun. And some time together at the Fed. Those members here from those early years might remember him posting beautiful pictures. As far as I know, he is a motor sports photographer and anything I have seen of his is outstanding.

Met Rick and a few others one day for wings in Plattsville. Then golf at Foxwood and then the hats came out.

I remember pictures of your golf day at Foxwood. I think Snowman was part of your group, wasn't he?

That was neat last year meeting up with you guys at the Super 8 .... already knew SJ, OF7 and APEXMAN from the previous time they were up and did a 344 km ride with them & IQTURBO. Was fun watching Lily and my daughter playing together despite the language barrier. Probably the highlight of the weekend ... :)

The first people I meet on the trail were Bosscat and Snowman at a restaurant in Matachewan. The place sat maybe 15 people. Fun where you will run in to those Red Hats.

First ones that I met were Luc and Big Reg at the Toronto Show.

 

Moosifer put me on to the forum when there was a topic regarding hand signals and the green / amber light system was mentioned.  I had read about the system and was planning on building my own.

 

Lurked for a while then started posting.  Went to a pre season get together at Dave & Buster's.  It all went downhill from there :-)

Thank You WD ... very kind words !  The daughter listening thing, well, I dunno if it's a respect thing or pure fear of the old man ... but we try to instill values and comprehension into what we tell them, not just Do This , but the why and how ... so they understand WHY it's Do this Don't do that.... I think that helps.  I don't yell often but dammit I mean it when I do.

Kids in Hearst (I've said this before) are pretty spoiled due the unusually high amount of money in the town ... lots of millionaires, at one time more millionaires per square foot anywhere in Canada.  So when the rich kids bitch and whine the parents just spend money and don't raise the kids with values.... "all my friends have one ..." isn't rare ... that's why last week there were 8 high-dollar mountain sleds all with wraps and mods at the high school, with 3 inches of snow on the ground. 

 

We don't come from money, both our families did ok but weren't rich by any means.  So when we say Can't we mean it.  That weekend last winter with you guys was kind of a big luxury for us, not something we do regularly.  I realize that a few people on here are way better off than us, and that's ok, no problem with people that got money AND respect, best people on Earth.  THAT'S what made it so awesome, the chance to hang out and ride and meet you guys last year.  One of the best weekends I've ever had.

It's been so long that I remember the "beeps and bongs" of the dial-up modem connecting. Online search led me to oc.com

Soon after, met LMV and Domino for wings in the Waterloo area.

That led to a bigger gathering at Dave and Buster's (Vaughan), autumn dinner ((Barrie racetrack), a memorable Gravenhurst ride led by Doonut and some wonderful oc.com rides in support of Kelly Shires.

I stumbled across it while looking for an alternative to HCS.  Got tired of all the BS over there.
