  1. I believe that there are Musk Ox in N K-Beck, but it is likely beyond roadways. ??? I was raised on Gordon, John Denver, PP&M, Barry Manilow, and Beryl Ives, until my mom spotted "Buddy Holly Lives" advertised in the mall walkway one day. I seen Gordon on his first tour after his big scare. .
  2. Wait - what? K-Beck has different money? Shirley you jest? .
  3. Gaspe' is on my bucket list! .Although - if possible - I'd like to venture further north to see some carribue and musk-ox. (they're long lost kin eh?) So over the mountains and over the plains Into the muskeg and into the rain Up the St. Lawrence all the way to Gaspe' Swingin' our hammers and drawin' our pay Drivin' 'em in and tyin' 'em down
  4. I'd love to read aboot a trip to Gaspe'! i take it that this is in general? .
  5. Sounds like Manitouwadge 10 yrs ago...
  6. Where was that split in the Hydro taken? Isn't that Marathon? You didn't mention Marathon in your schpeal. .
  7. ... and wear their jammies out in the snow! .
  8. Sold? What kind'a putz would buy that old place? .
  9. 10 yrs @ 70 hrs? Must be something lost in the metric conversion somehow? .
  10. I love the trails around Marathon, but even with all of the enthusiasm, any trails west of the Soo to Hearst line will never be justifiable unless Thunder Bay has a change of heart. The town is just not skidoo friendly, and thus apparently hardly anyone from there rides. IFAIK we have one guy here from T/B, and that is the ONLY guy that I can recall EVER posting from T/B. They must all spend their time curling and drinking over there to go out and play in the snow... ??? Point being that D west of Wawa, and for sure west of White River, and A trail west of Mooseland hardly ever saw a snowmachine - even back in the heydays of the early 2000's. The locals don't ride that far from home, other than the occassional poker run to the intersection of the two clubs and back, and the Yanks simply are not plunking down $200/sled to go that far north. Terrace Bay would be lucky to be open by early Feb on a good year, whether it be from lack of interest, or weather issues. If the motel jockies aren't willing to sit their assets in the groomers and brush trails in the fall, then they shouldn't expect the Yanks to come. And there really isn't much of anything at all between Hearst and T/B. It's just out on the gas line, so it is wide open and safe I guess. Close to the hwy if you find yourself in a jackpot... But hardly a nice ride through the bush. If we can keep everything up through Hornepayne and east open, you better feel good about that. I really don't see these other communities ever reaping the benefits, and a resurgance in interest will be sqworshed quickly with no traffic. So you fella's that aint been that way, and those of you that have and liked it, you better gitcher assets up there as soon as you hear that it is open, but make sure of where to stay is open. Again - District 16 didn't see Jack for traffic in the heydays.... .
  11. I may hafta see aboot buyin' that book, but from the article, you would think for sure that he was Cree, but Tozer is actually just a Hoser. Might go good with my old books from Nick Jans. Interesting that he got out of the plane business. I think he had up to 3 at one point. ..and with the Attawapiskat thing being busy too. ??? .
  12. Liability _ liability..... I was talking to a fella in Ont about redooing some software on a machine for me. He was almost ready to doo it, and then had a realazation that I was in The States and we are "sue happy". (should someone get injured, the changes made could be in question as a cause) And here you can't put a club together w/o all kinds of paperwerk. I recall an issue many yrs ago where one club up that way just went in and tossed a mobile home frame over a crick and called it good. Then some greenie cought wind of it and made a big stink that they did it w/o permits, and wouldn't'cha know it - there were speckled trout in that crick! (When you figger out what one thing hasta doo with the other - you'll let me know eh?) They hadta pull the "bridge" and fix all the groundwerk in the area, and then file all the forms and such. I'm not sure if there was a new bridge went back up eventually or not? If so - I bet it cost some-one a WHOLE lot more loonies than the old one did. And either one got you to the other side... Life must have been so much less stressfull back in the day....
