  1. snicker} 2 yrs ago there were local businesses that would place a sign on their door that said: "Doo to mandates, everyone is required to wear a goofy mask [that doesn't doo a whole heck'uv'a lot] in our facility. Unless you have a health issue that prevents you from wearing a mask. But doo to the Black Hippo laws, you are not required to give out your health info, and thus, we are not asking you for it." Long live the Black Hippo's! Menards did chase me out of the building once tho. .
  2. Dang! Maybe I'll just stay here.... .
  3. I am not what most folks would consider "green", but I doo believe in good stewardship. But we doo have a few batt powered yard gizmo's. Whacker Chain Saw Leaf (grass) blower (also used for clearing out dryer vents) I have been dead set agginst these things ever since my mom came home from the hardware in prox 1980 with a rechargeable whacker that I was to use around the pond. I was pissed as soon as I seen it, What an underpowered POS! Yeah, well - 40 yrs and higher expectations have produced much better results! I prefer to have the batts on a charger and ready to R&R when needed, rather than have to dink with a chain saw that hasn't been started in 6 years. After 2 years with the batt gizmo, we sold our Stihl whacker a few weeks ago. But for something being used daily, especially continuously, converting energy an extra time is not efficient. .
  4. Apparently not anymore.
  5. Read Wildman's post 2 posts north. Actually the Yanks made that stanse official in the last cpl days I think. .
  6. Yanks are such slackers....
  7. Any updates in requirements to cross the river yet per unvaxed rednecks? Or any talk aboot changes coming that we can see from here yet? .
  8. We have a round-about in Angola, Indiana (just 30 smiles from me) that has been there as long as I have known. (45 yrs at least) https://www.google.com/maps/@41.6348666,-84.998897,113m/data=!3m1!1e3 It is the center of town and only 1 lane, and trucks doo fine there. Just in recent years when Toledo started installing them - have I experienced a 2 lane round-about. I had to have a "WHOA!" moment to figger out how this worked! And those are not nearly as large as the one in Angola at all, and my BIL says that "You jist let the trailer run where it wants to and be done with it." I don't think that I have been through one of the 2 lane jobbies with my trailer yet.
  9. Yeah. they are not designed for trucks.
  10. Cat tunnels buckling eh? Talk to Dan or Pat aboot cat tunnels breaking during the Challenge Canada races back around 2000. Nothing new...
  11. I hadn't heard any bad press or experience with the Alpha before, but then the Cat forum would be the last board that I would visit.. Have you spent much time on an Alpha?
  12. LOL! In the new Snowest that just came out, they were dooing a comparison between some version of the 2023 Summit, an RMK (or whatever term Pol uses these days), and what they referred to as "an Arctic Cat Mountain Max (in blue).
  13. WOW! You could read posts on that FB thread 'till Tuesday and not get caught up!
  14. Reading that again, it sounds like 50% on your side don't meet the requirements either. No?
  15. So then, what's to be concerned for? (Monkey barrel)
  16. I understand that some folks can cross, but - as over 50% of the folks (on either side likely) I don't meet the needed criteria. I fully expect to be able to cross soon. But couldn't a few weeks ago when I would have wanted to.
  17. It's not really that simple. It doesn't mean that you are not allowed there by law. Is it on Crown? I ass_u_me that the east side is at least? The west side is likely Crown that has an easement from the Hydro? Which is still Crown? In Algoma area, a green trail mostly means that you now need a permit, or a local camp to be here. When it's red - you can be there with anything that you want. (if it's Crown) Snowmachine (in June if you like), Camper, Swamp Buggy (those guys can doo a lot of damage ina short time!) Camper, even a transport if you like. Also means that the OFSC isn't liable for any damage. Forget the fact that it's Ride at'cher own risk anyhow ... I'm guessing that the day that Halfway said that they were closing for the season, that the trails all went red in that area. With the report of all that new snow and closed trails - If I had the ability to scootch accrost the St. Mary's River, I'd'a been there in a heartbeat! (or maybe 9 hours of them anyhow)
  18. Likely just means that they are done grooming.
  19. Of course - the other side of that is: If it doesn't matter, and it's the same off-season, then why not make it November?
  20. While I agree with you on that, but in the end, does it matter if your warranty starts in April or in November? It's all the same off-season anyhow .... ???
  21. Doesn't look like much snow-pack there at all? The Soo got nailed all winter, but Elliot Lake didn't git much? I thought that the North Shore was getting good snow?
  22. They saved the basement!
  23. Looks like they just turned around at the crick. (small river I guess - it looks to be aboot 40' accrost) I wouldn't know why they made that short spur tho? https://www.google.com/maps/@49.8485611,-83.1831199,1795m/data=!3m1!1e3 Here is the vid. I love this ride! But watching a few vids like this tells me that I don't want a turbo. I don't want to listen to those things pump'n dump all day. My chums M11 was cool for a bit, but listening to 2 strokes with them, nah....
  24. A) Left hand throttle (and mtn bar) takes care of that. (still working on my LH, but may get time this week...) B] I was going to say that he just needs a bud to stand on the ski... and then he got one! LOL! C) Hesitation was actually the issue. A fluid move would have made the corner in time. Yeah, well I aint dead yet. I love bushwhackin'! Those 360's are somethin'! A cpl yrs ago I was watching a vid about "Going up the waterfall". Wasn't really a waterfall, but rather just a drainage... But while watching the vid, the camera never missed anything, and I was wondering how the guy was always looking the right way (back at his bud) at just the right time? I finally came to the conclussion that it must be some sort of panaramic view camera that was editable after the fact? Then in the credits I saw "Go Pro 360". YEP! So, doo you make it all the way from Hearst to Moosonee in one pull? That's gotta be aboot 300 miles? Going that direction I think that you miss William's camp eh? We started that trip back in '08, and burnt down two carbed sleds from the steady throttle in a lean spot while pulling a big sleigh. Should have raised the needles one or two notches I guess... We was planning on camping out overnight(s). Decided I'd try it aggin when we all have fuel infected or 4 strokes.
