    You just can't make this stuff up! Imagine if 10 years ago you were approached by a time traveler and he was like "Look, I don't have much time to explain, all I can tell you is that the year 2020 is going to be wild as hell! You know Donald Trump, the star of the apprentice? Well he's the president of the United States and at the beginning of 2020 he gets into a Twitter beef with Iran that almost starts world war 3. Australia catches fire and a woman tries to save it by selling pictures of her tits. Kobe Bryant dies in a helicopter crash. Half the world is devasted, the other half just makes messed up memes. A 42 year old Canadian Zamboni driver wins the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs...his own home team! And just when the world starts recovering from the loss of Kobe some dude in China eats a f-ing bat and starts a global pandemic that specifically kills old people and asthmatics. The Prime Minister of Canada directs everyone to not speak moistly on others (more memes ensue) President Trump halts all funding to the WHO. Everyone loses their minds. 40% of the population thinks it's the end of the world another 40% thinks it's all fake and 20% blames the whole thing on cell phone towers. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that the only way to survive is by hoarding toilet paper. Grocery stores are ransacked and Charmin Ultra Soft essentially replaces all official currencies. Eventually as hysteria grows, governments are forced to shut the entire planet down and lock everyone in their houses and..... the only person that can keep the people from completely losing their minds and starting a huge riot is a gun toting Oklahoma man with two husband's, a meth addiction, and 223 pet tigers... And that was all before Spring!!!

    Global warming just makes the snow not stay long enough to make trails. We still get lots.

    I am aware of that although their rate quoted to me wasn't competitive with TD. My question was regarding the following statement by Scottyr "It appears that unless you belong to a group or an association, The Personal doesnt really want your business."

    I had my little guy out for his first ice fishing trip today (just under 6 months old). Still 24+” of good ice where we were today. Supposed to be warm but maybe we will have May ice fishing.

    Sorry, but I would roll the dice and call his bluff. If sledding comes down to a hundred dollar difference, you shouldn't be in it. the permit has to increase, it's simply not sustainable any other way, unless you retract the system to run on the revenue proper.

    Social distancing does not mean that you can only sit your fatt assets on the couch and binge watch Gomer Pyle. It means that you aint swappin' spit with the next person. Working outside? Heck - dooing aboot anything outside for that matter.... A few people werking in/under/on/outside of a new house is a problem? A dump truck that is from your area (dump trucks don't tend to git too far from home eh?) making a delivery to your area. It's not two or three guys digging a grave by hand for Petey's sakes! You want sumpthin' to actually worry aboot - how aboot that Gordons Food truck that came from Mississauga this morning? THAT may be sumpthing worth concerning yourself with, but not like you're gunna eat without it... Some folks just lose the spirit of the act, and git too concerned with the exactness. "Stay at home and in your house" makes a whole lot more sense to someone living in a 5 story appartment building in the city, than it does to some joker who has 5 acres of woodland up aggin a lake. Crickie - if he wants to fish or hunt for mushrooms - who gives a Schidt? Is he in your face? If so - then I guess that means that YOU aint in YOUR house eh? Is he in ANYONES face? You better jump all over Rev for cutt'n wood then! Also note - that that construction crew has likely been working together daily since before this whole thing started. At which point should they stay away from each other? Staying especially distant from someone not in your daily circle and especially not local is more the point. Let's see.... Most of the week I have been in the shop all day, but today I dropped forktruck tanks off at the LP place, and continued up and snuck over the Michigan line to make a delivery and a pick-up. Came back and picked up my tanks. Back to the shop and unloaded, picked up the Mrs. and headed accrost the Indiana line to pick up a skid. Stopped at Dairy Queen, and came home by way of my G-ma's who we need to check on aboot every day. You guys that are all held up on the couch aint gunna be safe until the rest of us git it, and you aint gunna eat for long if the rest of the world doesn't keep moving - so for Petey's sakes - let us get on with it and quit worryin' aboot what the rest of the world is dooin'.

    Mr French certainly comes with some impressive credentials and I wish him well. If I were advising him I would tell him to focus on 2 areas; Funding and Access. Funding is more than just govt grants or hand outs. To me it’s includes permit pricing and structure. I don’t believe our system is sustainable with its current price levels and structure. This is a complex area as there are a lot of interrelated components and finding the option that maximizes revenue will not be easy. the other issue is access. By that I mean clubs and districts getting reliable access to land for the trail network. Many districts experienced huge difficulty last year obtaining workable land use agreements to the point were large pieces of trails were closed for all or a large part of the season. The role I see for our new CEO is to work with government to remove the barriers to reasonable land use and /or develop strategies to incentivize Land owners. Again a very complex situation that will require a strong vision and a great deal of tenacity as it won’t be easy or quick. Wishing our new CEO all the best.

    Maybe but now people come from farther away to make Sprucedale a destination . It was always busy even when it was a hell hole

    I keep thinking that as our 'range' extends, we bypass places. Sprucedale was a natural stop (tm-STG) from Parry Sound. Now I'm there in a flash (ahem) and Kearney feels like a natural destination. Same thing heading north from our cottage on Six Mile Lake. Gravenhurst was a haul...trails got way better and we now by-pass Gravenhurst and stop in Bracebridge or Huntsville. Add the range of some sleds and you're flying by places you once stopped at. Just IMO, and realize that if I bypass Gravenhurst riding north, someone heading from the north will bypass their town and land in Gravenhurst. All good in the end. But our destinations have certainly changed. Heck, Bonfield>Mattawa (lunch) > Bonfield would've been at the edge of comfort for wifey and I years ago. Now it seems easy. Actually go for a toot further south after completing that loop in a day. Sleds are better, suspension more forgiving, trails are wider, better signed and just easier to ride. It's almost like the highway freeway model has come to Ontario sledding. And I sense more changes to dining & gas will follow. It wasn't just the Sprucedale hotel's 'issues' - there are other choices, not too far away.

    So great to hear from you Sarah, say hi to your mom for me and the rest of the PPSC crew. I'll dig up some of the pic's from the day your Dad burned a hole clear through the side of your Citi, and post them up here later. Wish I could of seen the look on your Dads face through his helmet when you took off with us across Scugog on his Gade, and we left him in the dust causing him to heat up your Citi a tad
