  1. Slomo, I have pictures on my iphone. If I got step by step instructions and by that i mean do this then this then this etc I could put them on here. I usually share them via facebook as its as easy as the push of a button. I would love to show you guys how much saplings \ brush tags I had to ride through to get to Hammer Lake on the D trail out of Dville. about a 75 km ride on the newly reconnected trail. Many times my riding buddy wanted me to turn around, but I would convince him that there would be more of the awesome logging roads that are also on this trail. I did not take pi
  2. Well, it's officially the end of this season's riding for me. 3009 km on a crap season isn't too bad. The weather turned on me in a hurry, and as such I was not able to ride the giant northern loop aka the Mooseback. I did ride from Kapuskasing to Dubreuilville and back with some off trail riding around Dville and as a consolation I was able to ride some of the newly reconnected toward Marathon. I made it to just shy of White River, but the road grader ended the journey at Hammer lake. A new owner with cottages for rent, an LCBO and restaurant forewarned me. Nice to meet th
  3. Good to see some clubs here in the south being able to help out northern clubs with groomers and operators at this time of year. ( I remember when Glencoe sent a groomer to Mattawa a couple years back) I know that a groomer already went to district 14 and one is going to Mattawa with an operator too. (operator is the brother of a buddy I ride with a lot) Just throwing it out there that what if the funds that were currently accumulated in groomer replacement reserve were used to cover trucking and operator wages and fuel. I know additional or newer groomers are required, but could th
  4. Wish I could get up there for that ride. However, this just in from Denis in Hearst. D trail to Marathon now open limited from Dubreuilville. This is absolutely HUGE HUGE HUGE in my opinion. Right up there with the connection from Cochrane to Halfway through Folyet and Chapleau. It is my intention to ride both of these trails during my March break. I have a very ambitious route planned on the giant north loop with an out and back to Marathon from Dubreuilville included. (second goal......rubber side down always.....lol........BRRAAAPPPP ) Way to go Marathon cl
  5. Hey Denis, better than average chance I will be your way again for my march break March 12-19. have you heard if people have ridden to Longlac/ Geraldton as some had last year? and if so would you consider the endeavour?
  6. Has there been any further progress on connecting Marathon to Dubreuilleville ? or for that matter Geraldton / Longlac to Hearst ? Perhaps those are long term projects or for next winter after El Nino dies (I wish she would) Also if there are those from southern ontario who want to ride in and around Dub, Wawa, Halfway, Hornepayne, Hearst in mid March get in touch with me. The tentative plan is to drive up on Saturday, March 13 and ride Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur, Fri and drive back on Saturday, March 20 The specifics will be worked out closer to the date.
  7. Hey Ted, how about taking some vacation March 12-19 or maybe 5 days. Head north. Oh, and I ran into Huey on the trails on Sunday.
  8. I spoke with Luc last night after reading this and it was a district decision, key word being was. He said district has now given the ok. He didn't say exactly what each clubs share would be. I'm thinking now that I might head to Dub for my March Break instead of Cochrane where I usually go. I'm not sure what District 13 has arranged with their gps units. ie if they have imposed limits. As for new rules, Our district trails committee is actually going the other way, where we are looking sharing more trail and doing away with artificial club boundaries. Our district wide association m
  9. At the ofsc AGM this year and under the more on the snow proposal, Shaugnessy said that with the upcoming new district grooming model (a synopsis of more on the snow) he said the districts would be in charge and not the ofsc. I'll have to talk with Graham Snyder (first vp ) at our next district meeting perhaps there is more to this. I'll message Luc as well. And I do have to get back to Denis Burns who is charge of the trans ontario trail. As long as its sustainable there should be no limiting.
  10. So looking today at the ITG I just noticed that D trail connects all the way to Marathon now. I keep getting side tracked with work and for at least the third time now, I've let this thread go stale. I knew about connecting the Soo to Wawa and the reopening through Chapleau to Timmins but not this. Thank you Thank you Thank you to Dubreillville and Marathon for connecting this. It may be part of my annual March Break Pilgramage north.
  11. So to follow up on my email last night here is the reply I received Merry Christmas ad a Happy New Year Rick Please call me to discuss early in the new year The TCST is very much alive and well in many parts of Canada - it is estimated that we currently have over 14,000 kms of trail in place - yes we have some holes but it is still the longest snowmobile in the world - many will argue the longest trail but a few links in the chain are now broken Perhaps you can stir the interest to again get Ontario actively talking about it to "re-kinder the interest" Connecting is a problem - I live
  12. Yet again I must apologize for being inactive on this site and in particular on this thread. I sit here extremely bummed out by the lack of winter weather on my holidays and look to the weather forecasts each night before going to bed. First thing I want to say is that I emailed CCSO (Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations) about the interest and status of their Trans Canada Snowmobile Trail. I just did this tonight, so no I have not gotten a response yet. For those of you who don't know there was once such a trail. The idea originated I believe in 1998 and in 2002 a trai
  13. Akron, I stayed at Valentine Farms before. The president of my local club is really close friend of their son. (he is a fireman in London) Anyway, I know that the B&B was sold and I'm not sure if it is still in operation or not. (i thought i heard it was sold to be used as housing for local workers.....I could be wrong......best to check)
  14. Does anyone know if the trails that are planning to reopen, are the same ones that once existed. Particularly up through Halfway Haven and the trail through Chapleau to Timmins.
  15. Just wondering who would be interested in a 5 day trip to Wawa or Dubreilville area for the week of March 14 -18 (5 days of riding, 7 days total with driving on either end leave Sunday March 13 and home on Sat March 19) Probably best to send me a personal message.
