    Trail L143 Timmins to Gowganda

    Not only are they great people (their kids help out too), but the cabins are great, they have gas right there, a general store with a LCBO on site, and the meal plan is top notch especially the dinners. And there is a lake view.

    Quebec Insurance rebate

    I must have missed something? When I ordered mine there was a choice to buy without insurance - it took a it longer to arrive in the mail. But it did and I just paid less (minus the admin fee) at the time of purchase. No rebate. Am I missing my rebate?

    Ox - Curious what’s that rod mechanism on the side of the cat stuck? Some sort of Jack?

    West side of Abitibi canyon

    I agree items like this often take time. I believe I saw that OPG posted on the base camp Facebook page under the comments For that post saying the delay is due to OFSC. I can’t seem to find it now as I don’t have facebook... but interesting comment none the less.

    itg ?

    I assume you have the new 2019-20 version from the App Store? I would think so if you are seeing some trails limited in the app?

    The ski doo ones are 79.99$ cad with free shipping online right now and a dealer near me even had them on sale last week. https://www.ski-doo.com/ca/shop/Accessories/handguards_handlebars_accessories/muffs_pads/handlebar-muffs-fits-with-all-handguards-2015-and-up.html i have ran then for a few seasons now and really like them. No Interference issues of any sort - however I turn my kill switch button down and out of the way like the mountain guys haha

    Go snowmobiling Ontario app

    Stupid question: so I have to download the new version and pay for it right for the 2019-20 season? The old version 2018-19 season still opens up and seems to update as well so you’d think there would be a message saying the old one doesn’t work anymore? Or maybe I misunderstood?

    Rockys Sudbury Cabins in winter

    I agree with the above comments. If I recall when we stayed there (~2 years ago) in the winter it was 60$/ night so pretty cheap split between 4 people. But as mentioned the washroom And shower was in the main building And only open when the restaurant was. Also was kind of awkward walking through the restaurant to shower. but for the price can’t really beat it. And we needed it last minute. I would stay there again if needed.

    Great Northern Ride, Cote Nord 2020

    I went last year to New Brunswick. Looking at going this year. Don’t know the hotels yet and sometimes you don’t know until you get there or at least closer to the time. But will be the larger ones (likely hotel universal in RDL, etc.) as there will be ~100 doing the ride. If I find out more I can post it.
  10. I have a 5 by 10 utility trailer from the same company - it is not a dump model though. The trailers are as advertised but for sure not as good quality as a brand name like miska or Weberlane, etc. For example the axel is too far forward thus tongue weight sometimes is too light but as long as you load front heavy it’s fine. The wiring is also mediocre. Like said above the price is not too bad - a good case of you get what you pay for though. If you don’t intend to keep it for 10 years and plan light use, it likely will work for you. A bit off topic of what you asked but hopefully helps in your search.

    A Trail condition

    We just rode it last sat North, then from Cochrane south to Kirkland on Monday. Trail was in good shape. Better on Monday with the new snow. The Val gange section was dirt (you could ride the banks for most of it) on sat but snow covered Monday. Some rough (hard) moguls but no issues on our end. Should be good this weeekend. By by good I mean spring riding conditions. Cant post pictures for whatever reason...

    Cochrane Update..

    Just got back from 1000 kms there. Started in Kirkland and went to Kap and a number of side trails. With the new snow things will be good. Some rough spots but no complaints!

    Cochrane to Hearst Mar 22 2019

    I called them earlier this week and they said they are planning on staying open till the trail is closed. They were thinking until 7APR. But things change this time of year so call ahead of time.
  14. Great reports and good to see your taking advantage of all the snow in northern Ontario.

    Temagami North on A

    Rode temagami to new liskard 18FEB. About 12 kms plowed for powertech/lapraire equipment (hydro guys) which was no good. We had fresh snow a day or so before so was snow packed but with one or two days of sun it would be down to gravel. The rest of the trail was good but bumpy. Likely groomed and smoother now as it was the end of family day weekend when we where there.
