  1. I've never run it that way. Always the loop. Good day trip out of Cochrane, I'd imagine, running east side both ways Am aware of the ' politics '. Haven't been up in years.
  2. There was another element - folks travelled out of Canada. Many competing choices as things " opened up ".
  3. Ok. Saw Muskoka Brewery on the map ( big surprise...even checked operating hours ). I'll see the reroute during the season. Thanks, again.
  4. Way to go, Snowcrest Riders. Thanks. And great pic of current conditions, Re: Leaf. I looked for Wihnara Road basic mapping software, coudn't see where it met the train tracks, for some reason - the pic will assist during the winter ahead.
  5. Great pics, Nutter and Killswitch. A trip down memory lane. I'll never forget Doonut's love of 'off trail' riding. "Why stay on a groomed trail when that swamp leads to a path and a backwoods lake. Look, a hill, followed by another hill, a valley and three more snow covered hills (Muskoka). Darn, your stuck. Here's a shovel.... ". Thanks for posting, Nutter.
  6. Hi, I ran this google search "killswitch doonut ontario conditions" and it pointed me to a 2010 thread. I hope the search produces results for you too. I can't link you via this forum. But the thread is viewable in the search. The images are from Photobucket - glad they still link. ___________ Posted January 11, 2010 Sunday, Mrs.Doonut, myself and Killswitch headed out to Port Perry to join Nutter for KS's first licenced trail ride. Can't thank the guys from PPSC enough for the patience and support they showed her on her first ride. Me, Killswitch and Mrs.Doonut
  7. That's our preference too. Hotel is what you expect from a Super 8 and the same with Casey's next door.
  8. Warm up sheds " came to mind when I read this. As in - " just in case ". Appreciate all that these clubs are doing. Hopefully the provision of these sheds can become a provincial project ( not kidding, it's a tourism and health and safety matter ).. Somehow passed on to users in Ontario. Thanks again to the club's working on this north western Ontario project.
  9. Thanks for the reports. Northwestern Ontario snowmobiling is the best!
  10. Thanks V2 for this information: we did talk with D13 and they advised us that Half Way Haven will not open this year they have made adjustments to all the grooming needed It's sounds like that stretch ( with trail relocation if HH not open for gas only ) will be doo-able. Lots more info to follow, I'll bet.
  11. Great information. Thanks. There were some quick sections between Dville and Hornepayne. Wonder where this replacement is: "Trail reroute of 60 kilometres of trail D108A between Dubreuilville and Hornepayne"
  12. The auto industry was rumoured to rely on old chips. That's the problem. Chip companies made the chips they were supposed to make, moved on. No desire to keep using old mounds. Want ' old'. Here's the price. These car companies removed passenger door key locks to save $50 ( before key FOBs, now moot). Article I read. Makes sense. As for abundance of RAMS, I wrote in another thread that U.S. won't honour Canadian warranties. Not many Yanks coming up here to buy Chrysler products at auction. Hence, lots of Ram trucks in Canada.
  13. There's a glut of 'inventory'. In some businesses. Others (cars/trucks ?) - seems like pricing is still high and inventory low. One interesting observation from a marina staffer on my recent Georgian Bay boat ride from Parry Sound to Byng Inlet (Britt) - cottages are empty, boats unused or put away early because folks decided to travel out of country. I wouldn't have missed this summer in Ontario for anything. They did. Same story from a marina operator in the Muskoka area. Quiet. And I don't think it's the usual "Marine gas is $2.20 litre" explanation. For some reason, people have the itch to go to Europe or Florida. Shoot-me-now, if given that choice in summer.
  14. Good summary, SF. Consistent snow in this area and Golden Lake provides options ( cut across or stay on land trails). Hope that you find participants willing to assist. Thanks for maintaining the trails, OS.
  15. Weren't there like 10 rooms upstairs? Bring all of your wives
  16. Great advice, for options. Thanks. Call ahead, in a pinch for fuel, I suppose.
  17. I haven't been that way for 2 weeks. As you likely know, the old route in front of ' Delewana ' is closed. The new route takes you to Midland. I've always started towards Midland and then peeled off and made my way ( unstaked ) to that mushy part at the South end of Beausoleil ..then pick up the tree line again to Penetanguishene at the cookout/ camping spot at South end. Not for the faint of heart ( wifey ) ... or others now that you mention south Beausoleil issues. Be safe. Head to Midland ( tree line ). Note that land trail between Midland and Penetanguishene is roads. Not a good idea on 10 - 13 degree Sunday , group.
  18. Did you mean " talked into "? Never mind. It's Polaris. You meant to say ' tricked into '
  19. We saw a wolf at sunset , in Sudbury, a couple of weeks ago. Wasn't in a hurry to get off the trail. Moved aside and sized us up. We completed the Wolf loop and Moose loop. Saw both animals ( pair of moose ). No cougars 😁 As for far north sledding, needs to exist. Trails need to stay open.,If it was an ofsc survey question vis-a-vis staying in the sport - it " matters". Extends the season, if nothing else. Thanks for terrain and logistic answers, group.
  20. Good thread. Thanks. I once pulled up to a groomer as I was leaving cottage by car - he stopped, I handed him a bottle of wine _corked ...consume at home :) and thanked him. Great guy.
  21. Neat article from Stokely Cross country lodge and trails received by email this morning - Most every evening in the Goulais River area there are snow squall warnings. And every morning all three groomers are out again refreshing the 100 km of Stokely ski trails. So if you are looking for snow and great skiing Stokely is the place. Our groomers are telling us that there are easily 6 feet of snow on the ground. Yesterday two skiers stepped off the trail to let the groomer go by and they were buried in snow only to be rescued by the groomer. The ski resort extended their season due to all the snow.
  22. Thanks for the information. What are the other Timmins snowmobile choices? And how would riders rate them? ( For example- group of guys, staging from Timmins ). We've always stayed at Super 8. Casey's next door for dinner. It's been a few years. Seems like many new chain hotels.
  23. Good points re: Elliot Lake. Wonder what those loops you mention are like.
