  1. I'm sure you probably could access the trails from the Marineau in mattawin
  2. Had Fxrfor years, jacket and bib very warm but heavy. My biggest complaint was not waterproof. Got caught out in the gaspe in rain, gave new meaning to the saying soaked to the bone. Have Klim now definitely not as warm, really have to layer up but staying dry is a plus. Still using the Fxr bib but will probably replace, tired of the wet ass 😧 when snowing!
  3. I heard they come with 6 shields from the factory for 2020😮
  4. Doesn't come with a windshield at all! Optional
  5. Should probably think about tuning up the mower and sharpening the blades. Looks like a week or so and you'll be ready for the first cut
  6. We've also gone there from RDL down the 85 through Edmunston to Moose valley. If I remember it was a little over 100 miles
  7. Something tells me he can probably afford it. Heard his next goal was to see how much fuel you can burn in a summer season on a formula Fastech
  8. That's what i thought it could be also when I googled NY snakes. Sent the pic to to neighbors here that trap. They said copperhead. Whatever, certainly don't belong in the basement!
  9. Had an awesome time with a great crew, a lotta laughs and great memory's for sure. Finished up with 1580 miles on this run. March riding is the best! After staying at camp in Lake George get back home today to my wife telling me there's a snake in the basement! Sure as hell. No expert but checked with the locals here and agreed it was a Copperhead. One of three poisonous snakes in the area. Luckily by a window I was able to hook it and fling it out the basement window, not a snake fan!
  10. We where probably still there. Changing in the rental building. Trailblazer walked over as he was just about to leave and saw us pull up. Would have loved to finally meet you after following all your posts!
  11. Yep, Especially when your solo, A lot more time on your hands
  12. Day6 Woke up to an awesome sunrise this morning nice place the manoir but food not so good! Tq3 east still in great shape into the relais in escoumans for lunch. Other then some sections hardpacked and icy trails super for almost April. Into tadousac to catch the ferry, trail pretty well baked. Right on like they waited for us. Off the ferry tq3 through the twisty section flat as could be and into st Simeion for the night 240 miles.
  13. Day5 Another cold morning -3f felt warmer with finally no wind. Plan was to continue East to the moosie river. Playhard headed West Solo to be back to his truck early. Tq3 in perfect shape, 25 miles later we cross the Moosie and have a team meeting. It’s freshly groomed! Now what? Was like having the devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other! We don’t have time for this to be back to Matawin on Saturday. What to do! Screw all responsibilities or do the right thing. Probably the toughest sledding decision! May not have another chance like this. Welp the angel one, head to Bae Comeau for the night where we are now at le Manior. Beautiful place right on the water. Tq3 stellar the whole way. Fuel in port Cartier with lunch at some chicken shack. 230 miles. Westbound in the morning
