  1. It sounds like rsykes is my neighbour, and Polaris Dark Side isn't too far away. Cool. A Yamaha , Polaris and Arctic Cat go for a ride (it was a warm day, so the Yamaha started ........) 😁
  2. Look at the interactive guide before venturing. We're up that way ( Six Mile Lake ) - but haven't been up since Christmas. We'll be up this weekend. If trails are open, hope to be out as well. Welcome aboard Polaris Dark Side. It's never too late to " see the light ". Many Arctic Cats on our lake
  3. 3 seasons ago, we were the last one's up for the season. They cared and accommodated us - we called in a.m. to say we're on the way up from Cochrane ( left voice-mail message ). Younger gent left Jerry cans, we filled up - met further south and settled up. I remember Bill before that and some chap who worked for him and literally howled at the moon ( cabin fever he said, "alone" ). This is a new chapter. In difficult times. It'll work out.
  4. I remember both places working in conjunction. If Black Creek didn't have fuel or was closed, they'd send you to Aubrey Falls. And vice versa. I also remember the big groups and the ' gulp ' ( literally ) as the finite supply of fuel was being used. It's been years since I last rode up there ( maybe that's the case for a lot of us, low snowmobile traffic impacted sales??? I think they had hwy 129; business as well). Thanks for the updates, Dan.
  5. Great riding and trails @ Hill and Gully. Not a Facebook user, but anything that gets the word out re: sledding is great.
  6. Some folks have been parking sleds in trailers for years ( if hotel based ). Just another option for this unique situation ( secure trailer ). The usual wire cable thru skis, which we actually used to do, for some reason.
  7. The 2022 ( new ) Toyota Tundra doesn't have front tow hooks. In any option/ configuration. Just a big-ass front grill on the new Tundra, but no tow hooks, to maintain the " cool " look. I've pulled trucks out of ditches a few times ( with my 2013 Tundra ). Last time, had to nose in, assist by pulling out. It happens. I digress. Great pics, weather images and thread.
  8. I'd wondered if that was previously posted. Easy target ( Arctic Cat was so far ahead of its time ). Definitely time for some trailside Ukrainian kobassa, Rye bread, Cheese, Pickles and Garlic. Merry Christmas to those of you also celebrating Christmas eve tonight ( Ukrainian Catholic in this case ).
  9. You guys are scaring me. The definition of insanity is doing things the same way, over and over, but expecting different results. I posted this in the meme thread, but it really belongs here ( Arctic Cat rider , totally happy with our sleds )
  10. June provincial election. The temporary 2 week became 2 years. This shutdown is to be "rapid and effective". A lot is depending upon that.
  11. 100 percent local riding last year. Planinng trips soon. Hoping small businesses will be allowed to stay open.
  12. That's what I was wondering, Ox. Starting to think yoots have other things to do.
  13. Because you're 200 kms from your destination as the sun is setting? [ Ooops Greatest trail side conversation ever. My son still chuckles at " seniors trip planning 101 " ]
  14. I recently returned from a 5 night Florida trip. Some people were randomly tested on the spot or given a box to take home and be tested ( I was the latter - negative ). The ' take swab home' didn't require isolation until results known ( 6 days). Not sure about those swabbed at border ( quarantine pending results? Why would it be different than those of us who took the test home and ' virtually " shoved the swab up our nose in front of a nurse, to prove it was ' me ' taking the test). In any event - you live a monastic life pending results. And you keep a written journal of contacts ( yeah, yeah LMV ..big brother ...). I wouldn't let any of what I mention stop you. But it's there, waiting for you at our border. I flew. Maybe land crossings have a different triage ( the actual name, at border ) .
  15. There have been a few seasons we didn't get on the trails until groundhog day ( Feb 2 ). Made up for it by riding into late March. Good luck.
  16. North Adventure Inn (was?) owned by folks that didn't have a passion for the business or snowmobiling. Our oc.com gathering at NAI was a blast in spite of the accommodations. Guys came up from the GTA solo, with a sled on the truck box. Long haul, lots of laughs and the usual great trails.
  17. Whatever happens in your boathouse, stays in your boathouse.
  18. There's an expression " That's what she said", often missaplied. Not this time. That's what she said All in jest, to the family that introducted me to 40 Creek chicken wings. Thanks! Glad you have one sled worked out. Happy trails.
  19. I couldn't resist... Think of it as a bump. Good luck ( with the sale ).
  20. Companion - Hearst has great email blasts. Short. Informative. Thanks for sharing.
  21. I have a first generation tekvest. Big shoulder pads. I'm and XL in jackets. I have a 2 XL Klim snowmobile jacket and a 3 XL Mustang floatation jacket ( I switch based upon terrain...occasionally do long rides on Georgian Bay). So yes, if they still have big shoulder pads, upsize for sure. Even if they don't, I'd go up one size. The only time I rolled my sled was in the first 50 kms during breaking in the sled. Figured I won't be going fast, don't need the Tekvest. Tapped brakes on a glare ice road, survived the first 360 degrees. Not the second ( edge caught). Russian judge gave me a 9.0 for form. Tekvest was on a hanger. I just bruised, in any event.
  22. Informative - even for non Doo riders.
  23. I'd read about the non-Canadian reactor purchase. Wondered why. Wouldn't that be something - a Canadian energy policy.
  24. X2. Really like riding in the SSM area.
