  2. The TQ 5 goes to the Inter-Provincial motel in Pointe a la Croix, from there call Mundles Towing 506 759 8881. They will come a large tilt deck and take you across the river to the trail on the New Brunswick side.
  3. hi guys hope everyone is getting ready for winter. I am looking to plan a modified gaspe loop with three days in New Brunswick. I have found mike riders way into moose Valley. I thought I have read of guys doing this before but can't seem to locate the trips. is there a shuttle service across at Pointe a le croix our matapedia? our is there a unmarked trail to connect the trail systems? thanks guys.
  4. Zoom in green green waypoint along the 597 on the FCMQ interactive map. This picture does not zoom close enough. See anything? http://quebecrider.com/forums/uploads/monthly_2021_09/697063640_Screenshot_20210926-143714_SamsungInternet.thumb.jpg.53874a90a66a2c623af467c449133b7b.jpg
  5. Any reason why he’s wearing an ankle monitor?
  6. Yeah Ontario went through this a few years ago. Aging fleet and no plan to replace it with the majorityof the equipment being closer to 15 years old. They ended up overhauling the entire provinces funding model. Pooled all permit money, started paying clubs based on hours groomed (something like $75 an hour), a small amount per km of trail they had, some money for admin and then kept the balance to buy new equipment. Started buying groomers in bulk and distributing them across the province. They also fund major repairs to units that made sense from this fund. Big kicker in it was a reduction in the total number of units in operation to make the math work on replacement on an ongoing basis. It's worked, but I wouldn't say it's perfect. The fleet reduction is arguably not the best thing to occur, but was done in the name of utilization and efficiency. Will be interesting to see if Quebec goes down this road. For fleet procurement I can't see it not being beneficial to pool resources and buy in bulk. FCMQ is currently putting $14 a permit into a groomer replacement fund. This will be around $1,000,000 a season provincially. Probably 10% of what they actually need to be spending. The clubs will be funding the balance of the purchases under the current model. FCMQ is typically ahead of everyone else, but I think it could be argued that Ontario has jumped ahead on this issue. Interesting to see how much equipment the FCMQ has in operation.
  7. Last week
  8. 490 with almost half of them being more than 10 years old fun fact for today
  9. Good guess but too many Good guess but way too many

  12. How many groomers (surfacers) do all the clubs combined in The FCMQ have in total? Go ahead guess?
  13. The chart shows the increase in cost of trail permit VS the increases of expenses cost of pas has increases only 8% since 2016 during same period since 2016 buying new surfacers 114% increase infrastructure expenses 40% increase major repairs expenses 157% increase it don’t come easy.
  14. This tells the story of why they needed to up the price. i got no problem with it.
  15. Why didn’t sleepy Joe just shoot a hellfire from a drone under that Texas bridge. Then use the same narrative as when they killed the innocent Afghans? Just stand up proudly and announce we have avoided a terrorist bombing. Then simply a few weeks later quietly announce ooops sorry wrong target. Not only this but the only people doing their jobs the CBP agents get thrown under the bus. Joe says there will be consequences for the mounted patrol guys. What? He sides with everyone other than US citizens. Where’s the consequences for Afghanistan?
