2018 Northern Blastoff Redux

Recommended Posts

Rolled into Timmins @ 5 PM. Weve changed our plans slightly . IrREVerant & I will be riding for 4 days, then driving home Sun'.

North of Englehart the trail conditions look better. TOP A highway crossing south of Kenogami looked fine. Timmins groomer out on L24 (thru town) this evening.

Have fun. no worries on having to cut her short this round. Enjoy the new sled. That four stroke will shine up there.

Maybe using the word "blastoff" to describe your trip is bad luck? (sort of suggests a catastrophic cylinder head failure and previously titled  reports feature break downs, towing, etc. ) New sled, new word! Have fun!

235 klicks up to Cochrane for lunch. Saw a lynx EXCELLENT never seen one before. The powerline north & south of the warm up shelter in such a state I could open up the 900 LOL Anyone w/ a 600 2 stroke would be happy w/ the 'performance' if you switched to the 900 ACE.

Lynx on L103. It din't seem to upset when we rode up to it. It had been sitting on the plowed road then climbed up the bank.

Parked in front of our rooms.

My trail pics are on my other camera so I'll try to remember to use the phone tomorrow.

I'm kinda happy with the 30 miles per gallon on the 600 4 stroke. Didn't realize the BonAir was so close to the trail. Noted. Keep the pictures coming!

L24 goes right past it (groomer was out front last night). The Esso is accessible albeit w/ a bare parking lot & cars lined up for the car wash. Shell is accessible by staying on south side of Algonquin & following the fencing.

Have a good trip.

 

My trip was almost as rough as your 1st attemp.

50km riding sled, 5km being towed, 55km on the back set of a stranger 2up sled and 2300km in the truck. :(

Rode out to Foleyet today for 291 klicks. Timmins trails other than 6 klicks of plowed snow covered road was good to Opishung R bridge. Foleyet side a bit choppy & thin in a few spots. Have they been down on snow this winter?

Foleyet General Store only sells regular gas, no premium.

Quite a few besides us fueling up & grabbing a bite @ the restaurant across the street.

 

C101D west of L21 jct':

They're camouflaged.... :D

 

Did you notice a sign for White Pine Lodge 10k this side of Foleyet? My dad's cousin owns the place.... he might have been on the trail checking permits....

I meant a picture of the white moose head inside the restaurant in the corner of the dining room.  You can see a nose through the window in the picture.  I think the moose was killed on a RR track in 1964.  The story is on the wall by the moose.

Never thought of it. We ate in the 'right hand' half. I think my buddy took a pic of the moose passing there in 2012.
