  1. So, three years back I get a new FXR sled jacket at less than half price, as the pattern isn't popular; RealTree Camo White. (I don't care, great price and I had painfully found out my old CHOKO wasn't water proof.) 2018 trip I'm lead, we hit a lot of snow coming down, and I notice that number 2 isn't in my mirror. He can't see me, and can't make out the trail. I guess RealTree Camo white works well in the winter. Last year I start wearing a day-glo green safety vest, both touring and locally. First thing I notice is how often all on-coming traffic slows right down (even in QC), and provides a wide berth on the trail. I don't wear it, and some guys are close to rubbing skis. So, for anyone that leads a group, in my experience to date, if lead wears a safety vest, oncoming sleds are unsure if you are Trail Patrol or even the "armed" guys, and slow right down. (Rode the Haliburton region a couple weeks back (Kearney to North Bay and back) , without the vest; never again without a vest.) Just a thought...stay safe... Note, if anyone from Ottawa is heading to the Westway in Cochrane, can you ask for my vest and bring it back. Getting the sleds started at -34c was such a distraction, I left it in the room; I'm sure it is sitting in Westway lost and found. Green with orange strips, velcro attachments (Princess Auto cheapo)
  2. I am new to sledding and am hoping to meet others in my area of Miskwabi Lake who wouldn't mind me tagging along out on the trails this year. I am always a bit worried when I go out on the trails alone, just doesn't seems that safe if I were to break down, etc. So if there's anyone out there who would like an extra person out on trails with them then shot me a message or text me at 416-268-5106. I do have a trailer as well so open to trailering. My machine is a SkiDoo Grand Touring 2010, so I can even take along another person!
  3. I have put on 600 kms between Havelock and Lake Saint Peter over the last few weeks and have not seen a single O.P.P. anywhere , or have I heard from any sledders that have seen them . I own a restaurant on the trail in Havelock and the O.P.P. would usually park their trailer across the street where it was nice and visible .This would happen almost once a week but not once this winter. We have had yellow and green trails for a few weeks and I have met a number of sledders in the restaurant from out of the area and I make it a point to speak to them and not ne have mentioned any Police on trails.
  4. I know this is a Heart of Ontario S/C forum, but KLSC does not have a forum. I figure most you do not ride as North as Fenelon Falls, but I am hoping a few of you do. I was looking on the OFSC interactive guide and was trying to plan a route from Fenelon Falls to the trail off of Mitchell Lake. Balsam Lake and Mitchell Lake are the same level and there is no dam or lock between them (just a long canal). I was wondering if the long 5 foot deep canal freezes over in the winter? and is safe to rip right down with snowmobiles? If so, I would be able to take TRAIL 321 out of Fenelon and cross over to Balsam. From Balsam I could go all the way to Mitchell through the canal and hop on TRAIL 101 and head north to TRAIL B104. If anyone can shed some light or has done it before, it would be greatly appreciated.
