Just did some math. 0 klicks or 0 miles so far, one of the benefits of riding an area controlled by an idiot.

I imagine there are a lot of sledders in the same boat.

 

I can hear the idiot's comment, 'But think of the children!'

 

There had better be something in the permit pricing for you riders come next season. I'll end that or I'll just get madder.

I will assume you mean some type of credit for purchased permit cost from the provincial government for people of the area since it was their man that caused the issue.

Yes and by their directive you're not supposed to travel to ride.

 

If I had any advise for Dr Cherrios, I'd say retire & crawl back under the rock where you came from. You have pissed off a very large segment of your region with your decisions.

That would open a real can of worms. Permit credits for all those in southern Ontario who live in a PHU where there are no OFSC trails, and you are being told to stay in your own health unit. Some believe that is the law and haven't ventured out yet. I have 1900 km on so far, so I will forego my credit.

I know. It's just frustrating the way this whole thing played out. 

 

Hopefully the biggest decision Dr Cheerios is allowed to make in the future is which ornge juice the hospitals serve, pulp or no pulp.

 

Today's 65 klick loop...

New & old camps. The new 1 has a walk out basement. As 1 of the guys said from a neighbouring camp said "They've been watching too much Buckmasters".

Nepheline syenite mine near 'Blue Mountain'. There is another operation near Nephton. That operation is being combined w/ this upgraded facility. If you see trains of covered hoppers on the CPR passing thru Pontypool or Burketon, they came from here.

This happened on family day. It's a big year for me. ( Only taken 7 seasons to get there, d'oh) These 900s are amazing on fuel. LoL

Sweet. I had 10750 on in 5 years   couple winters machine hardly got used. No snow locally and just had no interest. Just a bad decision lol. 900 is just awesome. 4500 k on the new one this year

4500 km this year? Wow, that's great.

We're having a bit of a drought here, picked up new snow this past week but until then I have had almost no interest in riding.

Put on 500k this weekend alone, season total just doubled. Hopefully this warm up doesn't screw it up too much.

Yes, I am at 2800km local riding and going back out today. Had our first lunch of the season at Harleys in Mildmay yesterday. Nice change from hot dogs on the trail.

Was never one to take many pictures, but feeling this year will be my last in the groomer, so stopping to get a few. Too many hours on the trails, too few of those with the sled.

IMG_20210217_092733801.jpg

Yup. Was there too. In the machine more than on the machine  BUT always loved it. Building trail and all the thumbs up made it alot of fun. Thanks for the dedication

I had a couple of seasons like that before I hooked up w/ SJ & company around '17 or '17. This year has been the opposite. I've been out pretty much every other day, either personal riding or some 'work' riding putting up signs.

Pretty much only ride with my son, or extended family, same ones that do trail work together. Don't ride alone often, but I really enjoy it when I do, no one else to worry about I guess, or me trying to keep up with.

Yes it was. As others have posted great burger!

 

Which way did you head. Had conditions (on plowed roads) been better , doing the loop to Gilchrist Bay might've been considered. Today would be perfect.

Yup, Maples restaurant in Sharbot Lake. Just off the Top E.

First time to a restaurant since last March, and it was one of the last ones I went to before this virus thing, even though it's almost 3 hours away.

It was good, everyone spaced out, nobody wandering around aimlessly, and following the protocols. No worries here.

Saw an awful lot of sleds out and about in Langton area yesterday - looked like a lot of fun and trails looked great, was jealous.
