  1. Yeah, I'm no scientist, but I know what my eyes have seen in my almost 50 years and there is zero doubt winters are not like they used to be - call it whatever you want - but I am convinced something has changed.
  2. We need some cold to get people fired up. Its the end of November and we're walking around in t-shirts still.
  3. Money is tiiiiiight for a lot of people. We had a hockey game in Chatham saturday ( 2 hour one way ) and Windsor today ( 3 hour one way ) We had a few families this elect not to spend $150.00 for a one night hotel stay - instead choosing to drive back home after Chatham yesterday and then down and back to Windsor today. My guess is they were close to that in fuel?
  4. Just seeing those pics is friendly nudge/reminder of what it's all about.
  5. Since it's cold out today, the boy wanted to test out the new coat, helmet and goggles for "warmth". Says its perfect- no drafts -toasty warm.
  6. I would ride that all day. Looks as good as a mid season day in Muskoka lately. Jealous
  7. Not too bad. We have more where we are. Like an 8 year old - I still get my parents to send me a snow pic
  8. Decent snow in Huntsville this morning. Looks good up there.
  9. Thanks everyone - figured that would be the case. Going to order up the protectors - they come with the new rivets etc. for the snow flap re-install. Cheers
  10. Throwing this out there - cause I'm dumb. Anyway - Polaris EVO - 550 Fan. Son and I are going to stud his. There are no factory installed tunnel protectors. That said, there is also no cooling/rad under there either as it's fan cooled. Should I put tunnel protectors in anyway to protect the aluminum underside or forget about them and just stud it. Thanks - and don't judge
  11. Polaris always were "fat" from the factory - the colder it got - the faster/crisper they ran. Good ole days
  12. This coming weekend - in the fall of 1995 - I picked up my snow checked 1996 XLT - and rode it that weekend - putting on over 150 miles of fields and misc. areas in Muskoka. I had over 600 miles on it by Christmas and ended that season with just shy of 4500 miles and traded it after one winter. Those days sure seem to be a thing of the past in Muskoka Last winter was the first in over 30 years I could not ride around our bay on safe ice between Christmas and New Years.
  13. Terrible for setting up the rink It can snow forever where I like to sled - it can take a hike where I live.
  14. Lol, We need cold first! Our area has a lot of low lying wet - we need COLD then snow
  15. I am sure that has come across the desk too Anyway, I'm happy to have kids who enjoy the outdoors and doing so with motorsports. It's fun Life needs to be fun
  16. Thankfully JT will rescue us all and restore winter with his climate initiatives
  17. We'll see how things shape up over the next couple of weeks. Willing to travel for sure - we're ready to go
  18. Got the boy new helmet/goggles, jacket, gloves, clava and boots yesterday. He was pretty pumped when he saw a few vehicles in the parking lot with snow on them. Praying for cold/snow for christmas new years as his hockey is on a mandatory shut down the week in between - would be nice to get some riding in.
  19. Welcome! Great group here who have lots of information when you need it.
  20. Amazing - hard to believe I was outside setting up our rink in t-shirt and shorts yesterday.....
  21. I imagine it would be an almost impossible year to expect any growth.
  22. Sad, would love to have been able to stop in for a grilled cheese with bacon and a beer.
  23. Nothing booked yet - but my son and I spent some time looking at the map now that it is up. He is 12 - he's finding it pretty interesting seeing where all the trails are in our very large province.
  24. I have looked at a few and half ass considered picking one up to just run it in the garage, listen to it and sit in 2 stroke paradise.
