  1. That does suck! We were hoping to ride the SSM5 on Sunday. Does anyone know if it might open by then?
  2. Call Carl at Driftwood he may be able to arrange for gas in Searchmont. The revival of the north is imminent; there will be gas in Searchmont in the future...
  3. If you hear from him please let him know that we thank him for his many years of service to all of that might have traveled north for the first time. It seems that the trail always ended at 3 Bears. It was a right of passage to the north. I will miss 3 Bears; Brandon, Cindy and Kelly have all been instrumental in my appreciation for northern Ontario.
  4. We started that trip in Massey and headed West then north. It was a good trip. We started a trip in 06 on Drummond Island and a loop from there. Both were good starting points.
  5. We rode the "D" 6 or 7 years ago. It was a slow technical ride as I recall, twisty and many hills on the Hydro line. Bach then I think we rode from Marathon to Manitouwadge, there was a really narrow trail leaving Marathon that linked up with one of the main trails (A106D?). Back then we then rode from Manitouwadge to Hillsport then to Longlac and Hearst. The good old days!
  6. Count me in. You can have him contact me anytime. I will send you a PM with direct contact information.
  7. Who remembers Thor Lake where you needed their gas from Jerry cans to make it to more gas. I forget exactly where they were, somewhere along "C" I think..
  8. We stayed last year. I think the nearest gas is Timmins.
  9. LC, Thanks. I will call and check. How all is okay with Ross the (former?) owner. IMO - No reason to stop in Chapleau if Valentine Farms is no longer available.
  10. If it's open we'll be riding it. Join us if you like. We'll be staying at Valentine Farms in Chapleau then on to Post 392 near Timmins. I will post the exact trip itinerary here soon.
  11. Welcome to the forum Chad! There's a lot of great info here. Hope to get out your way this season!
  12. More good news! Longlac and Marathon again; that's awesome. Hope Manitouwadge can be next!
  13. I received a reply to an email I sent to D15 about a trail to Longlac. The news is good in that it appears D15 would like to expand back into Longlac. I think they're referring to the old A107A and not the "A" trail through Hillsport. Either way it doesn't matter; even if they're only thinking about it, bringing back some of those closed trails is good news! I've removed the names but the message is below. If you would like to ride some of these trails I encourage you to send a message to D15 and let them know. I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I am brand new t
