  1. That's one of the reasons I sold the yamaha Apex. Very hard pulling. Ignored it for a few years - rubbing ice on hand at trip's end. Likely me ( how do you spell wooooos ?). Actually went back to 2 stroke arctic cat for less wear and tear. Didn't know Skidoo might've been the answer.
  2. I once received leather work gloves with ofsc logo. Nice memory - thought about sledding every time I put them on.
  3. Thanks for your post. Welcome aboard. No first hand experience with trails open to some, not others.
  4. I was reluctant to post - truly detest 'ver are your papers' mindset. But we've all been stopped. Usually where a trail crosses a municipal road. 'Driver's Licence, Insurance, Ownership'. Usually not a problem. The wrinkle here is what the foregoing flushes out. Hopefully this practice - either didn't happen or was just the usual check; or if happened will stop 'happening'. Folks need fresh air; there is no opportunity for this form of activity in many health units; people will go onto (dangerous) ice soon to avoid 'ver are your papers'. With dangerous consequences.
  5. Second hand report of OPP officers in the Orillia area issuing tickets to 'non residents'. A friend heard from a friend - then advised me. It was on his Concession Road, so I believe it. Just fyi - deal with above info. as you want. Appreciate all info. to date from this group.
  6. Appreciate all the suggestions, for future rides. Thanks.
  7. Drove up to the cottage ( Port Severn - Six Mile Lake). Seguin Trail was open, went a bit further north towards Parry Sound. Freshly groomed, worth the drive. Really only a break - in , sled tuning trip. Enjoying the Artic Cat 800. It felt great to get out. Two sled family - out with son today. As for trail itself - limited. You can open it up 90 percent of the time, slow down for ice, occasional snirt. They're working ( brilliantly ) with what they have. Parked at the Public parking south of Petro station. Basically cross bridge over hwy 40
  8. A person walking, on snowshoes or on a snowmobile is outside. Presumably not breathing recurculated air " inside". Ontario is the only North American jurisdiction to ban skiing and snowboarding. Why not encourage fresh air?
  9. Thanks SK. Definitely a " destination " ( base ) riding experience. So many places to go from there. Worth staying at least 2 nights.
  10. This has an Indiana Jones feel to it. " I'm searching for this rare and precious artifact " Great find. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Years ago, when we were in our 30's, our group blew past some "senior members". Waved hello, goodbye, or so we thought. . Zoom - zoom for 30 minutes, then we stop to relax. They passed us as we rested. We played this leapfrog for the entire day. Slow and steady ( they never stopped, or so it seemed) versus us meatheads zoom - zooming, then stopping. The two groups reached the evening destination together. I've observed this many times over the ensuing years. 'Tho roles are now getting reversed
  12. ( kidding with the pic, Puggz- reminded me of those " asking for a friend jokes" ) Hopefully someone can let you ( us ) know. I enjoy that lake, except that one March we found water near Bigwin Island. The whole lake was slush, then open water to our left. Dwight to Bayville that year. Happy ( ice ) trails.
  13. The gift of work gloves was a nice touch, when the trail crossed our land. Lasting memory - you think of OFSC when wearing them ( nice branding on the top of them ).
  14. It seems that the forum has a minimum # of characters necessary to "search". For example, 3 letters, i.e. "RAP", yields no results ( for me ). It must be more than 3 letters. I'll raise this with the suits - " folks who can fix or explain" - tonight :). If you type the longer term " RAP Tour" you'll find it. More characters are required - not the STG type of characters . The expanded search yields many " tour" matches ( RAP and tour ) - but lots of info on RAP. Let me know if the above works. Two quick results, in links, below - there were man
