    No pun intended? Sorry, SC - great report. There's a multitude of reasons sections of trail may close - trespass and loud pipes are at the top of the list.

    Only on a sled...

    Too funny! Don't know how I missed this earlier. "Ski-Don't" on a Doo. Nice sled ! I think I was exhausted and delusional from towing!!!! I also recall Denis' slide. Surprised Doo paparazzi allow pics like this .... LOL. Denis to the rescue!

    New to Gravenhurst

    Awesome sled ( Arctic Cat ). Awesome pic - trailered somewhere with snow, by the looks of it. Welcome aboard.

    About time I bought a sled.

    Congratulations on your northern cottage purchase. Staked trails are from OFSC " point A" to their " point B", often onto / off a lake. Make sure that the section of lake you launch from has safe ice ( you might even be fortunate enough to unload adjacent to the trail....I see that a lot). Lake freezing is affected by currents - if you stage near a river, etc., even a few hundred feet from the staked trail, be careful. Floatation suits are relatively inexpensive - if I had a lake access cottage, that would be a priority. Watch a video on how to get out of ice water - we seem to have one in the topiics/threads every autumn. Quite helpful. Lock the trailer ( and receiver / hitch & wheel lock) upon departure. Sadly, you never know. Many Polaris riders on this forum - you're in good hands with sled selection.

    Ofsc ap

    That's how it works with boating navigation apps I've purchased. They call it 'tiles' - download the tiles you'll need and it works without cell phone reception. Boating apps make it clear re: tiles - how and why. Not sure how it's spelled out on the sled app, haven't loaded it yet. A bit concerned about perceived differences between the 'app' & web based information. Since I only use it to plan, mostly web based use for me. Unlike boating, sled app never 'tracked' me nor told me where I was. Not sure if it has that ability yet, but that's a question for another time.

    Beach Run - Wasaga - Warning

    Thanks for the danger warning. Applies pretty much anywhere on the Great lakes (and interior lakes) that had higher than normal water. Bicycle couriers call hitting an open car door "the door prize". Beware of 'stumpy' - guess all we can do is slow down and hope for the best. I, for one, predict a cold winter and look forward to G-Bay exploration with riders who know the area. Haven't gotten out as far as I have recently (enjoy Port Severn to Parry Sound on the bay). Woods Bay, etc.

    Hornepayne Food Options

    I've seen the Dutchman on his best behaviour! No wonder it's 'closed' . It's like a Seinfeld episode..."what happened" "what did I do?" The secret password for entry might be "The Dutchman isn't with us. Please open the door".

    Just found this site

    Welcome aboard. Any updates from Dunsford or Bancroft would be greatly appreciated. Bancroft is a great place to start the RAP tour.

    Sprucedale Hotel is for sale

    Nice to see you as a sponsor at Slederama, Wildbill /Rosseau Road Powersports. I had my boat in Peterborough a few nights this summer - folks seem to have an active, outdoor lifestyle down that way. And .. totally understand Sprucedale "Hotel" as a magnet/destination for riders.

    Good news in D17

    Thanks for sharing the info, Soupkids. I looked at the IAFG. Wow. So many trails in the north-west. I wanted to head to Atikokan this winter...and now see trails way beyond that. Appreciate the efforts of all volunteers to bring the trails back.
