  1. Years ago, in my subdivision, a guy was installing a pool and the contractor came across a rock about that size buried in the back yard, cost the homeowner about $6000 to get it lifted out with equipment that about that same size, or perhaps bigger.. Rock now sits on his front lawn, since he paid $6K for it. And thank you for the trail work. Being from Ottawa, I do ride some of your trails over the course of the winter.
  2. I suggest anyone considering getting a "start" battery consider purchasing a product that offers more than just a vehicle boost. I've been using the Antigravity products for several years and currently have the XP1 (lots of functionality, but the case is a bit big). At the hotel, I can use it to charge my phone, helmet cam, etc. Therefore, I only have to search for 1 outlet in the room to charge the battery while I'm sleeping. They come with adapters for most/all phones, battery boost cables, and a Boost switch - which has turned over a Dodge RAM truck. Comes with AC and car charge connector.
  3. Word I got in the Spring from Reinhart trailers was that Triton had opted to not deliver Clamshell trailers this year, and only deliver enclosed "box" trailers. I don't know if that has changed, but I don't see any new Triton clamshells anywhere. And since it looks like I can get the new REN in mine, mine stays with me. Keep in mind that the big advantage of the box trailer is not having to clean all the snow of the roof, just to open the clamshell. Good luck. @ScottyCampbs just found this 2010 https://www.kijiji.ca/v-snowmobile/kingston-on/snowmobil
  4. Holy cr_p.. $5K and I thought mine (2004 Prototype) was only worth $3500. Mine is mint compared to that one. New hubs and wheels, floor coat of Thompsons again this year.
  5. Used slightly last couple of years when doing sled work. Manual included. I'm in Orleans/Ottawa. I can drop off between Ottawa and Huntsville, 30 June, as sled trailer is half empty. Otherwise it is a pickup deal. $250
  6. Plan is complete. thank you guys for the input which greatly assisted with finding a new start point, vice NB or the 10-15 years of NL. Book the rooms in the coming weeks. Now, wait for the new sled and deliver the Vector up north to Kearney next Tuesday.
  7. Thanks. Based on the sled sales numbers, I don't think it wise to leave planning until November, like in the past. I figure warm places to sleep may be in very short supply this winter. So, yes, earlier than normal planning. I may also have a busy business travel schedule to the USA in the fall, so banging this off now is better for me.
  8. I put higher foam and a new seat cover on my 2013 Vector last year. I have now sold the Vector. I have the original foam and seat cover, no tears, in great shape. (Always stored out of the sun.) All black. No seat pan. If someone is interested in it, let me know and we'll see about figuring out a price. (I'm in Ottawa.)
  9. It would be from Sat to the following Friday, and based on my drafts, we would only stay the first night (Sat), and we would pull out Friday, instead of staying that night. Mind you, I find that freeing up rooms on a Friday night during sled season is fine with most places as they have waiting lists. I also figure empty trailer and SUV is less appealing than a sled loaded trailer.
  10. On the off chance that you may know how many rooms with two beds they have, I would need 3 rooms with two beds in each room, in other words it is 6 guys, (no couples). The web site isn't clear on how many double bed rooms they have. I'm still awaiting word from the group on switching to TEM from NL. Ups Day 1 to 313KM from 246Km, which is fine. Adds about 38Km to the last day, but landing at TEM puts us in striking distance of trailering home that same day. Thanks
  11. Link shows that the work is expected to be complete by July 31,2021. Are you parking your trucks and trailers at Tem Rose, and leaving them for the week there? I would need space for 3 SUV's and trailers. Looking into this as an alternate to now flipping from NL down to NB, based on the recent council decision to open more of North Bay to sleds. Thanks
  12. I reached out to the FCMQ, who directed me to a club contact, who has not responded as yet. I've now planned a 2nd night at the Quality Inn at Rouyan N instead, with a day loop in the opposite direction, should we chose. I now also like to factor in weather delay days, since the Gaspse storm caused us to abort 50% of the trip.
  13. I'll reach out to the FCMQ to hear if they have information on the plan for the trails south of Val d Or for 2022 season (it would be a dead-head out of the Forestal and back to the Forestal). Alternatively, I can plan a day loop out of the Quality Inn at Rouyn-N on the 93 and 83, which covers some of our previous day ride, but in reverse. (If someone complains, then the trip ends on Friday instead of Saturday.) Attached, is my draft, I'll get the hotel list together, then send it out to the group for comment, then we book hotels; then wait for snow.
  14. New Liskard. I'll post the plan tomorrow. This was a consideration for a 2nd day trip before heading to Matagami. instead I'll look at a day trip out of Rouyan Noranda instead., where we head to after Matagami.
