  1. Tow Machine for Snow Machines

    WOW....Impressive but never in a million years would I "intentionally" put something I owned through that....
  2. Tow Machine for Snow Machines

    Agreed..... I have an 800 mile r/t from home - NYC suburb - to camp in Pittsburg NH and the suburban was not cutting it as far as pulling the 4 place Blizzard enclosed Trailer....Loving the power : ) - No regrets "yet". I only use the truck for same as we have other cars for everyday errands....
  3. Interesting article. I for one am of the opinion & fully support Quebec safeguarding its primary language first & then a language of your choosing second. I wish the USA would consider the same. I don't believe in government penalties against those who don't comply but if you migrate you should attempt to learn the language and or when raising a child the child should learn the National Language. Not always the case here in the States. Joyeux Noël et ou joyeuses fêtes à tous.....Merry Christmas and or Happy Holidays to all. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/05/world/canada/bonjour-hi-quebec.html?emc=edit_th_20171206&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=49341281&_r=0
  4. Tow Machine for Snow Machines

    Nice...Best of luck with her. I too am in my first diesel - '16 - 2500 - Duramax - for a 2nd season. Nothing in comparison to a gas job - all muscle - no hesitation. Travel safe. Top to bottom - #1 - Last week - Dec 2017 I was having the trailers wheel bearings serviced & 2 & 3 photos are from Winter 2017 : )
  5. CAA Quebec

    I see a new Q.R. advertiser / supporter in the near future .....CAA. No better forum to spread the word regarding their new sled service in Quebec.
  6. is the trail network in jeopardy??

  7. Proline Trailers

    Half of that trailer could straddle the border - one half in Quebec, the other in the states. Then you & your brothers could go back & forth out each end at will & the customs officer from either Country won't know if you crossed or not ..ha ha ..Very much enjoyed that story.... Congrats on the purchase : ) Best of luck ... Paddy O
  8. Pics from the Matapedia Valley !!!

    OMG JG....How did that happen ? Did you have to get hospitalized?
  9. Insurance question

    Agreed. After reviewing same I came to the same conclusion - selling additional insurance. Sadly it cost INTACT ASSURANCE $1.50 + - to mail it to me here in NY. INTACT ASSURANCE would have been better served if they had donated the mailing expense to the FCMQ. Translate web pages in Chrome On your computer, open Chrome.

  11. Trail Conditions

    A number of us were fortunate to ride several 175+- mile days with Bill for several days last week with my family and I parting company Thursday morning with Bill, JD, et al., Many thanks to Bill for sharing his "local knowledge". Bill's input certainly added flavor to the visit. Joe (JAK), Daniel, Colette, Pat, Gary, Gutz brothers, I trust you all arrived home safely. Stay safe. Till next time....(Sadly next year for us) Liam V, Eddy O, Ginny O & Paddy O
  12. Pittsburg NH to Beecher Falls, Vt. to East Hereford, QC. to La Patrie to Pittsburg NH

    Unfortunately Paddy O, this is what has happened in many parts of the Eastern Townships due to the lean snow years the last 10yrs. Permissions for former paths have been lost, signage is poor/non-existent, brushing is haphazard. Glad you were able to find your way. Sawyerville used to be an active area but I don't even know if the Sawyerville Hotel is still operating? It's been a few years - Thank you Vt_bluyamaha54. When I researched "Hotel Sawyerville" it appears it has transferred ownership multiple times in recent years with the last time in 2016 and is currently named RAMANA HOTEL COMPLEX. It appears to be a boutique / meditation escape / hotel . Aside from one Facebook posting in November 2016 I did not see any association / catering to snowmobiling. The following is a link to the current website. http://www.hotelramana.ca/ and or FB page @ https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=complexe hôtelier ramana I wish the current investors luck with their venture ,,,,,,,,,
  13. Pittsburg NH to Beecher Falls, Vt. to East Hereford, QC. to La Patrie to Pittsburg NH

    Hello, Joe. Arriiving Sunday afternoon. Looking forward to seeing you and the others : ) .
  14. Dropped down from Pittsburg NH to Beecher Falls, Vt. where we entered East Hereford, QC. From there we rode fresh powder - all formerly groomed for the entire 113miles + - . Our objective was to travel 523 to Sawyerville where we would pick up 525 to La Patrie and then onto Chartieville & Pittsburg NH. While traveling on 523 we came to an intersection where a signpost advised La Patrie was to the right. Subsequently we made the right and followed the directional (arrows) signs as the trail had no number. Well the trail went from steep and wide to a goat path and steeper. Additionally the directional signs became further apart where at times we wondered if we missed a turn off as the snow banks were high. How they formerly groomed the goat path (sled ?) I do not know as it was tight and hilly. It was obvious the trail had been recently cut as remnants of former trees were visible in the middle of the trail...Eventually (*25 miles + -) we dumped out onto trail 525 and turned right - only a few miles outside of La Patrie . The new trail / unnumbered caused us to circumvent Sawyerville in its entirety and roughly 10 less miles than our planned trip. If you choose to take the new trail I suggest you ride with another as we only met one soul (FCMQ Trail Patrol) who confirmed for us we were going in the right direction and that the trail was recently cut and not yet on the FCMQ map. Had we not met the trail patrol man we would have turned around as we were unsure if we were going in the right direction and off the GPS & paper map. (* Suggested mileage - guessed - could be more - could be less.)

    Snohorse darted off for a cold beer w/o you : ) . Don't you hate when your riding partner does that ? Safe travels.
