  1. I agree with 02sled , the restaurant is a must. The signage and online info needs a serious redo. Make it clean and tasty - they will come !
  2. We always liked the convenience of the Jolly Roger.The trails in that area are among the best within our preferred distance for trailering. Can anyone confirm that the new owners of JR are opening up with improved conditions ? Sure would like to support them when the snow arrives !
  3. I wish the boneheads who blew the stop sign on the Sequin on Friday could see the consequences of not stopping. Don't wish anyone harm ,but, when you get AIR over a rail crossing beside four stopped sleds ---- well FACK !!!! I am a retired first responder and I have seen the results of stupid. Wish the sledder well.
  4. Thanks 02 , We saw that a short while ago; it's a big one ! Gone now ! Four of us just came back from riding the Sequin and found every thing in tip top shape The northern portion of C where the hydro contractors are working is very hit and miss for snow on the trail .One section of about 100m is all mud ! Stay spaced out and go one at a time or go straight to the car wash ! We took the club trail back to Parry Sound and enjoyed that too . Thanks to Wild Bill for suggesting the Tappattoo ! We really enjoyed our stay there and will go back !
  5. Just wondering why the trails around and south of Parry Sound are yellow ? Are the lakes getting bad or is it a groomer problem? We are taking Bill's suggestion and are heading to Tapatoo on Thurs. and are looking forward to some easy riding cuz we'er old and need to feel safe ! Any body ride the lakes to the south of Tapatoo ? Do we have any alternatives to riding them in order to explore that area ? Any help is appreciated .
  6. We rode that trail on Thursday and my back is killing me . We know the groomer was going out on Thurs. night , I hope the weekenders get a better ride than we did. ! I would personally like to thank the asshats who are responsible for all the closures in the area ! Our ride to Whitney was very hit and miss as far as conditions go ; You groomer guys have a tough system to take care of --- Thank You !
  7. Color me green . Cheers .!.
  8. Thx ,, that's a big help !
  9. Thanks Rev-man , we are in the planning stages and the more info we get the more comfortable we get . I'm waiting for my sled to be released from it's badly needed maintenance appointment or we would be riding instead of typing !
  10. Thanks Paul. Our wives are very nervous about running the lakes , Is Haliburton Lake staked all the way and in good shape ? Cuz if it, is my gal will be on the bar with her e-tech just to get to the end ! LOL
  11. We are going to be sledding from Pinestone next week and were planning a run to Whitney on one of our days . The ITG shows RED from Eagle Lake to Guilford . Is this the only way to rejoin the B ? We are not real familiar with the area so an alternate route suggestion would be appreciated.
  12. Not fast enough anymore - at anything !
  13. Thanks Bill , we always like to support the contributers to our sport. Our wives ride with us and appreciate the nice digs when we find them ! We'll check it out !
  14. Blake , Four of us also ran the Sequin and found it enjoyable Wed. Saw few sleds , you might have been one ! You are right about the fine rain - it was a pain and kept us slow. A note to all ----- The Super 8 is now just a place to sleep . There is no restaurant or Jolly Roger anything let alone a lounge or bar. You do get a continental b'fast with your stay. F*** ## ! Having not been there in a couple years we were very disappointed to find this out when we arrived. Their web site still lists the rest. ( Golden Griddle) and the Jolly Roger Bar as open .THEY ARE NOT ! The human we talked to, to book our rooms failed to inform. In complete fairness the specific question may not have been asked , but still ....... What's that ? Oh ya - Know before you go.
