  1. Wow, good eye! Yes, that was us as we helped a Senior's Couple who had gotten their Toyota SUV stuck on the trail right next to the Hydro Station. We stopped to push them out. Too bad we didn't meet up.
  2. Looks like my camp in Iron Bridge took a direct hit. A few photos from the Security Cameras.
  3. Elliot Lake - Scenic Views We took in some scenic views along the powerline within the City of Elliot Lake limits. This is a photo from on top of the hill on the north side of Horne Lake, with an overview of the city.
  4. Elliot Lake Snowmobiling Some photos from today's snowmobile trip to Elliot Lake. We did our good deed and assisted a Senior's couple who had gotten their Toyota RAV stuck on the Snowmobile trail in Elliot Lake. We also took a run up to Dunlop Lake Lodge for a Burger and said hello to Randy and Trish. The afternoon continued with a trip to the Horne Lake Cliffs, a rip down Esten Lake and the Elliot Lake Falls. Temperature reached +11. Slush was minimal to none.

  5. As OFSC trails shut down, Spring snowmobiling continues for us in the Algoma District 13. Typically, we are good until about mid-april, however, one of my riding colleagues did sled the Kindiogami Road / Black Creek Outfitters on May 1st, years ago in a tee-shirt. Perhaps I may match his record someday, but that is more difficult to do with climate change. Tomorrow we are heading into the Wilderness for some bush snowmobiling. Temperatures are expected to be about +7 C. Looking forward to a sunny day and still ample snow in the bush.
  6. Cross-Country Snowmobiling Here's my latest write-up of our recent cross-country trip to Ritchie Falls Ontario from Iron Bridge Ontario. Now that warm weather is on the way, the snow will pack making for some amazing March / April remote wilderness riding in Algoma District 13. https://sled-x.ca/news/february-2022-report1.html
  7. The Weather Report for Sault Ste. Marie is the same as yesterday and will be the same for tomorrow. lol. It just keeps coming. Golfing in May...forget it. Snowmobiling in May...maybe
  8. Why do others not ride this area? Good Question. My colleagues and I are lucky to live in and ride District 13 (North of Lake Huron region). We get our November riding fix north of Sault Ste. Marie, then move eastward to Aubrey Falls / Black Creek for December, then south to Elliot Lake / Blind River, Iron Bridge, Thessalon, Bruce Mines, Spanish and even Gore Bay for January-Feb-March, then reverse the process for April. Traffic is light and on some days can usually count how many sleds you see all day on less than 2 hands. Cross-Country riding is my particular interest in this region. Glad you enjoyed your trip ZertRider. Hope you make it back again someday.
  9. The amount of snow in that area right now is absolutely crazy. The Environment Canada Snow-map is now showing snow-depth at 7 feet deep in the higher elevations of that region. Trying the keep the access road open from highway 101 to bring in fuel is just economically not viable. It is a whole different world up there.
  10. Same here. We lost our enthusiasm to get out to events such as hockey. Hopefully, that will re-bound soon. The Hounds are 29-31, not a good year for them.
  11. There is up to 5 feet of snow on the ground in some places between Sault Ste. Marie and Wawa, in the interior. Many places at 4 feet. Good luck.
  12. Mostly tight and twisty unless you get on the pipeline or powerline sections of the OFSC route, which is more straight. 300 kms is doable in one day. That is sort of our norm for a Saturday / Sunday ride in Spanish to Elliot Lake to Thessalon and Aubrey Falls. I didn't see Elliot Lake on your list. I recommend you head up to Elliot Lake as part of your trip and can branch from there as to which route you want to take. Do the lake runs between Spanish and the Elliot Lake trail as that is pretty nice.
  13. Sault Ste. Marie - Incredible Amount of Snow For my friends who are not living in Sault Ste. Marie, I just want to share with you that we have had so much snow this winter and snowblowing the driveway is a daily job and we are running out of room to put it. Enjoy the weekend humour (attached)
  14. Keep me posted. I'll be following your trip.
  15. Sault Ste. Marie - Updates - Feb. 16th Today, turned out to be decent day in Sault Ste. Marie. +4C with a bit of sunshine and absolutely no rain. We missed the meltdown. I changed the oil in my daughter's SUV, then went downtown to the waterfront, then off to Canadian Tire to spend money.
