  1. I wouldn't expect the road to be ride-able at this point. I would Shirley expect it to be all mud. Normally - I would expect it to be OK, but it goes to dirt REAL quick when the sun comes out! For a road that the atlas says "Closed in Winter", that road gits quite a bit of traffic! Are you coming from F/106 I take it?
  2. I think that I followed 1/2 of that?
  3. Well "warm" alone is one thing, but toss in the big winds that we have here today, and it will REALLY speed up melting/drying, and the winds are headed your way! (WSW)
  4. Could use a tad more snow to hold that sidehill... At least it`s on the RH side. (Downhill)
  5. Had to check this thread out as I read "Red Stone" and "staked".... But it is Red Rock that I was thinking of. They run from Rossport to Red Rock over the ice, but I doubt anyone is ever staking that. That is prolly at least 25 klicks and very little traffic. (South of Nipigon)
  6. Well, my '96/97 map showed the D trail from Searchmont to Wawa as 150 "miles" long. We were planning on gassing up in one of the stashes in the bush,. and I had a 6'er on board as well, but we were pushing 18" of fresh. Ass_u_ming that the gas was somewhere near the 75/100 mile mark - we were confident in our ability to navigate. When my 6'er was gone at 120 miles, and we still hadn't found the petro, crossed a rail line, or whatever else that the map showed, we realized that the trail was NOT 150 miles long.
  7. 89/90 trumps anything that I got!
  8. "Got" would be more true. That pic is >20 yrs ago (of my chum). I think that there are a few like that just south of Manitouwage too? I don't git out much these days. Hoping to aggin one day tho...
  9. Those big rocks setting up on top back in there sure are something eh?
  10. Last Weekend: Here is our <83 yr old riding chum that we try to keep up with. This day was the 2nd day of riding [in a row] for him after 4 yrs offline. Topping out a 12,500' ridge. (Colorado) This day we were 4 sleds, and me @ 56 was by far the baby of the bunch! 50 may be the new 40, but boy - there is still hope well beyond that!
  11. No time anyhow, and "not able to git to in Algoma" is long a thing of the past.... I have a bracket broken up to haul gas as well. Not sure if I intended it this way when I designed/ordered it, but it appears to be needed to be cut in half and will work for two sleds. Should be able to carry 2 or 4 fivers each when done. (in all my spare time) Boy, that was a $alty pc of alum! Sure hope it works! LOL!
  12. Been planning on making an early March run to Algoma, but then my boy is now switching jobs on March 1, so either we go the week before, or not at all, and watching the forecast, I'm purty sure that ":not at all" is going to be the result. Fortunately me and a chum had good snow in Colorado a week+ ago, but that was an eventful trip, and we still have some cleanup work to doo on that yet, so ... (will disclose when I git pics .. soon?) Looks almost like 1998 out there....
  13. No info on the gloves, but I got a pr of Togwatee Bibs from Klim this year, and they run at least one full size small. Had to send'm back for next bigger. So I wonder if the gloves are sorta like that? .
  14. Any Mtn Dew? Or does yours have added vinegar? We seem tol roll through your area around 3AM +/- Hoping for some snow to come soon. We are hoping to be there first of March, somewhere....
  15. More snow there than I expected. I take it that it gits thinner the further N you go? It looked like Wawa / Dubre had lost most of what they had.... ???
  16. IDK anything aboot TC going anywhere in '98 as I didn't even have online service 'till 2000.... I doo recall it being called New Dundee now that you say that.
  17. LMV, when was Day1? It hasn't quite been a full 20 yet, has it? Prolly close tho.... This site is no different. AFAIK most all of uscame from trailconditions.com -------------- Think Snow Eh! Ox
  18. I am a mod on another site, and we have had folks git pissed off and leave, and want all of their posts taken down. (informative site - machining) The Powers That Be have yielded to one or two and I find that complete BS. It leaves holes in threads, and also, there have been reports of links to other posts being wrong now doo to a post prior to it having been removed now. Personally - I'd say that if you want to leave, then just leave. Quit posting, and your profile will sink. One option that I can live with is that the profile is closed, and all posts are now under "Guest" moniker. You can't search much now, but at least the thread makes sense to go back and read. As a member/contributor, I hope that you never allow folks to delete posts, but then on a site like this - prolly not so big'a deal. Not likely searching form much tech info here anyway... .
  19. I know what it is. I just don't know aboot the infighting that apparently has taken place. I don't see it from out here, which of course was the whole point of the barrel of monkeys. .
  20. Well, I'm not part of the Monkey Barrel, and thus - I have no clue what y'all are talking aboot. .
  21. I just shipped a recoil to a fella in Kitimat a cpl weeks ago and I asked him of their conditions, and he said that they were pretty thin, but good enough. Honestly, can you tell the difference between 6' depth and 15' depth? Other than filling in a few holes, that's aboot it. We look for the local ski resorts to claim a 40" base before we like to go. That's enough to cover most of the land mines. I remember riding into The Soo (Mich) back in the 90's after they just got 80" in one storm. Had no concept of depth until we got to town where they were plowing it down to the streets AND the sidewalks!
  22. I don't have ANY ice on my pond currently. Shirley you gotta go a long ways N before it is safe! .
  23. Any relation to the Deep Snow Diggers from Midland? .
  24. Nothin' but tail lights
