  1. Ski doo has an expandable bag just like the kimpex one now. It costs more but if you are putting it on a doo already... https://skidoooutlet.com/product/ski-doo-linq-trail-pro-bag-30-l/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign={CampaignName}&keyword=&d=c&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8Pn9kM3h9AIVdv_jBx39zwMZEAQYASABEgI0tvD_BwE
  2. I typically wear a 2Xl jacket and have a large tekvest. I use a shell jacket and wear it between my bibs/midlayers and my jacket. I have the crossover one, just because it fit me better. It's 2" taller than most of the other tek vests but I'll torso. It has never bothered me wearing it, and I forget to put it on, I soon notice. I don't know how effective they are - hope to not find out - but in my mind it's a no-brainer to wear since I have young kids. The crossover vest doesn't have a zipper on it, and I'll admit I feel like an idiot when I'm pulling it off over my head in a restaurant. People ask about it a lot - you know the typical beer drinking crowd - what are you out there sno-crossing? Etc. If the sizing worked better I think I'd prefer one with a zipper that comes off like a jacket.
  3. Looks like a great system but havne't heard any feedback yet from anyone about the bag. For my uses I think I'd have to have that bag extended to the biggest size most of the time.
  4. Interesting. Wonder if I should get this driveshaft saver for my 18 600. I've only heard of issues on the yami versions although I suppose it would make sense to have issues on both since they are the same chassis.
  5. Yeah its a fly-in trip - drive up to Red Lake and fly from there. Hard to be more socially distanced than that. But if it's the flight that's an issue we would look into a drive-in camp. Adults going on trip are vaxxed now or would be before then. For a number of reasons my son will not be vaccinated, so we would not make the trip if that's the requirement. I was wondering if an isolated fishing trip would count as quarantined although I know you need to travel to get to that spot. From the govts perspective there could be some interactions on the way.
  6. I know an adult needs to be vaxxed to enter Canada but the rules aren't clear to me for a 12-17 year old. The Canada travel site says the info below. Do you know what's involved with the 14 day quarantine? We were looking into a fishing trip next summer, but I'm not sure if my unvaxxed 13 year old would be able to go. Thanks. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated youth 12 to 17 years of age are subject to the 14-day quarantine, and all testing requirements for pre-entry, arrival and Day-8 tests, whether or not they are accompanied by travellers who qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller.
  7. Wish they didn't charge so much for the maps to be used on a garmin.
  8. Willy was always good to us when we stayed there. Drove us to dinner and breakfast, to the Poo dealer, etc. The rooms set up was good for us with 3 beds.
  9. I haven't been up to the albiti canyon, but isn't that something similar up there?
  10. I don't know that area too well admittedly, but I've wondered if they could locate a pump somewhere closer to the road that that driveway exits to, so that it could be accessible (for filling the pump and maybe for workers). I remember talking to the people at the Bristol in Wawa. They said when that trail closed before the last time halfway reopened, that it really took out all the sled traffic. So I do think there's an impact.
  11. Pat D had posted something after the announcement that halfway was closing, something about let's figure out a solution. He seemed to be one of the guys that understood the need for it. I'm sure the guy in Searchmont where everyone parks does too. From an outsider perspective it doesn't seem like there's enough people involved to keep the fragile trail network going. For my group, driving up from Indiana and Illinois, parking in Searchmont isn't a whole lot further than the UP and riding north of there is such a better experience. Got to be tough to keep something like that open.
  12. Good they have it locked up at least.
  13. Any updates on Halfway Haven? Last I saw they posted they were overwhelmed with the offers to help, but that has been months ago. It's killing me that that place might be closed, with the impact it would have on the trips we do, starting in the Sault or Searchmont. Felt like there was a lot of momentum gathering on the trails from the Sault and north/northwest (Wawa, Dubreville, White River, etc.). Would suck if covid wiped all that out. Lot of people and businesses impacted if it isn't re-opened. If nothing else, for gas and for the groomers to stop.
  14. I sure hope we can back up there next winter. Rode the UP for the first time in about 6 seasons last year. Enjoyed it but Northern Ontario is where it's at for me.
  15. Just curious - are a significant amount of trail passes sold to people in the US? If so that must have hurt for this past season. I don't know if it's a small number or quite a bit.
