    Black Creek Outfitters for sale?

    I saw a beautiful log house with a slick looking off grid system consisting of solar and wind turbines in Cochrane. At the price they were asking I would be mortgage free and figure you could get some supplemental income from sledders. Wife put a damper on that real quick!

    Someone's fussin' b/c it's a bush facility? (amazingly) I haven't been there yet since Sean has taken over - at least not when he was there .... Maybe Steve took too many stuffed animals home with him? The albino martin? The bear rug that's on the wall? (which previously tore THROUGH the kitchen wall!) Not sure if he ever got a beaver mounted?

    I also said If the club doesn't have enough respect for the hut to replace a broken light bulb, or to have a stove pipe replaced etc... why should I. I will lite the stove, and sweep up if the tools necessary to do it are there. I don't carry around on my sled a broom, shovel, kindling, and firewood. I do however carry matches and paper to light a stove should the facility exist that permits it. What is to appreciate in a hut where I cant warm up and the lights don't work

    Then why would you make a statement I've been in many huts where the lights don't work, the leaves from the fall are still in a corner, the stove is cold, (if the stove pipes are still attached, and haven't been stolen,) and there are broken chairs etc... all around. Why would I bother to clean up, if the club cant. (not that I leave a mess)

    Dave K made a comment I've been in many huts where the lights don't work, the leaves from the fall are still in a corner, the stove is cold, (if the stove pipes are still attached, and haven't been stolen,) and there are broken chairs etc... all around. Why would I bother to clean up, if the club cant. (not that I leave a mess) I was suggesting he should clean it up rather than expect a volunteer to clean up FOR HIM. I have picked up garbage I have found trailside including a few shredded belts. I clean it up rather than EXPECTING the club to do that. I am part of the club but that isn't why I do it.

    What was the issue Halfway had this year? Late start due to trail issues? Or is there more to it than that (low traffic, facility issues???)

    I stopped in there last year with my son and the grandchildren. There was some locals there. (ex Home Hardware owner). I pointed out the burning wood stove to the kids. Opened the lid so they could see the fire and told stories of how I had to light the fire in the old cook stove we had in our farm house and how my mother used to cook on it sometimes when the power was out. It was a good education for them. Then they just wanted to get on the sleds again.

    Most of the time, the isn't anything available to use to clean it up. No broom, no firewood/kindling/matches available to light the stove. If its available, I use, bring an armload of firewood in etc... Be careful who you accuse of not doing their part. I'm vice Pres of our club, cook at every wing night, and stake 8 km of field trail every year.

    It's never needed any cleaning when I've been there. It is not owned or maintained by the club. The landowner cleans it daily and makes sure the fire is going if someone hasn't already started it.

    How about you clean up as appreciation for it being there in the first place. Rather than expect a club volunteer to do it for you.

    Ski' some grumbling on DooTalk about HH. I along w/ most others are grateful they're open & allows us to ride in that area. What do these clowns expect in the middle of nowhere, the Waldorf Astoria? "Give your head a shake"

    40 years on the trail. Perry always says, if you look after the Hut, the Hut will look after itself. 5 mins a day to light the stove, and sweep the floor. If you show up and the place is neat, you will likely leave it nice and neat. I've been in many huts where the lights don't work, the leaves from the fall are still in a corner, the stove is cold, (if the stove pipes are still attached, and haven't been stolen,) and there are broken chairs etc... all around. Why would I bother to clean up, if the club cant. (not that I leave a mess) Don't worry PLC Its unfortunate, but I think there are enough empties every year to cover the costs. Especially when the trails are only open 4 days a year

    Cannabis use on trails is just as dangerous as beer drinking along with speeding around bends. They all produce litter in the form of beer cans, brain debris and broken sled parts.

    Remove all risk and leave the beer at home or the room! Problem solved, crisis averted.

    I dont drink so my only interest here is the litter. I HATE litter of any and all kinds it digusts me. That said most sledders like a beer or two. IMO the real solve is to cater to that without punishing them and most will carry their empties back out with them. From what I have seen the BEER empties are tossed because of legal risks. Remove the risks and you'll see them mostly carried out same as the rest of the littler we all carry in and out of the bush. Its the empties that are most prominent because of the risk, not because they want to litter.

    I think I know the "Hut" you are talking about if its between Monkton and Milverton. I won't leave beer cans but would gladly leave a couple of bucks to help out if there is a safe place to do so Dave. We have stopped at that hut many times over the years and appreciate that it's always clean and warm.

    On the other hand, the reflection of the discarded beer cans helps mark the trail at night!

    My neighbor has a warming hut on the trail . Stove is always lit when trails are open, and all the locals know it as well. The chimney goes through a heated washroom on the back of the shed. He uses that money to cover things such as toilet paper, and other small essentials the the hut uses throughout the winter.
