1200 Enduro wouldn't start. Put the BRP battery on trickle charge, and rode the Cat.

 

Chilly enough to get a nice white patch of freezer burn on the triple chin. Even so, water is still flowing in some places.

Way to go, Blake.

 

On all levels - Riding. Riding the Cat. Bravo [and not the Yamaha kind :) ]

Glad to see you got out today Blake, I see Haliburton Forest has opened for sledding albeit limited conditions.

That Cat is pretty good for a beater sled.

I'm proud to say that Blake is my friend.... my hero .... 

 

Gobills, I can't even afford to put gas in a sled at the moment.. it's still a bit thin up here, gravel roads would be chunky without another 3 inches of snow. 

amen...dude is my hero

Got my first ride in this morning before the freezing rain that we are now getting. Had to start the break in on a new belt and new track for the Viper. Also made sure there were no leaks or issues after having the sled apart in the spring.  Everything was great and it even seemed faster than I remember!  

 

I took our access road to the rail bed to confirm the packer had made a pass yesterday, and it had.  Looking forward to a great season!

96.5 kms running around beautiful downtown Housey's Rapids, with the requisite visit to Summerland General Store for some delicious pizza.

 

Caught up with Slow Touring Guy at the gas pumps.

Looks good.

 

Is he their 'new' gas jockey?

 

Hope to get out for a little ride tomorrow on the Crown & our woodlot tomorrow.

70 miles and the 3 hour break in done. Thing pulls like a freight train. Little to zero vibrations and hooks amazingly. Hope the plows stay parked. Lots of trees and branches down and water under the snow.

Great to see you guys getting out.

 

Reevester, are there any backroads worth checking out? How's Yearley Road?

It's probably perfect. They haven't plowed mone yet and there is about 1" of fresh snow on it. Hoping they don't come by tonight. I'm heading towards megnetawan tomorrow if I can get down a trail connecting rds.

Broke my 18/19 cherry. Didn't go to far, thought there would be more snow in the Bush.

Plenty of snow around Novar and Sprucedale.

 

I see that some have been running the Seguin Trail.

 

Not much happening at the hotel.

Looks like they cleaned up the Sprucedale Hotel from the last time I was in it. It was a dive. Maybe it still is. Just a cleaner dive.
