  1. Summer Updates and Repairs

    What's everyone's opinion on wheel kits. We, like everyone find in March getting to gas stations can be a pain as the carbides are kinda worn. Has any one made their own that work? Thanks
  2. Whats everybody doing this summer?

    Well I did something special today. I married the love of my life for the second time in our life. Wonderful day with our two sons and three grandchildren and many friends and family. Only one missing was my step daughter. Not because she didn't want to be there. Life is great for us.
  3. Trail maps

    Where are you starting and where do plan on going? East or west?
  4. How about camping in a tent. Not for me but just an idea.
  5. Trail maps

    You are exactly right. Western part is easy but LSJ area there is a lot of trails we haven't been on. No matter it's going to be as always great.
  6. Trail maps

    If your free go on part of the trip.
  7. Trail maps

    I feel the best hotels and restaurants are gotten by word of mouth. If you start talking about a route you might take on this site people will tell the good and the different. In 10 to 12 days you are going to hear about and see many many signs for hotels on the trail. By the 7th day you may even have enough information about places you may change your mind where you had planned to stay. Don't fear just get on your snowmobile and enjoy. Get a place in mind and call at 3 in the afternoon and if they are full they will help you find a place. The greatest place to snowmobile and the nicest people to stay with. Have fun.
  8. Trail maps

    My kid and I are going to get dropped off on the western part of Quebec in early February, Timiscaming area, and go north to Matagami, south to 93 then north to Chibugamu, south to the Delta, then to St Raymond area and meet a group. This group will bring trailers enough to get us back home. But first we heading north on 3 to catch the ferry to Matane. The south to Levis to be trailed across the river and the back to the truck. Can't wait for winter. Sure hope my plan works. LOL
  9. Whats everybody doing this summer?

    Don I think you should just take them back and get your self a Yamaha grizzly four wheeler. No just kidding. I bet you are going to love them. More and more ride them here and all seem to love them. I'm jealous. Be safe .

  11. Whats everybody doing this summer?

    Well that's over. Have to admit there was a few the law couldn't chase. I was right about the noise. There was a some out boards that were quiet and fast. There was a lot of boats. Some of the loud ones were more loud than fast. Was at my kids shop on Friday and there was trailers lined up for new wheel bearing and brakes. I think the boys had a late night and maybe Saturday work. They had a great fire works show. Watched from my deck. Music was good. Heard it about mile and a half away. Of course the river was dead calm. A few were getting one more ride in this morning. All and all I think everything went well. Hope they made lots of charity money. I believe it went to the small hospital in Alex Bay. One story I heard was a boat came into the gas dock and took on 900 dollars in fuel. 2 hours later he was back and took on another 900. I thought snowmobiling was expensive. Lol
  12. Whats everybody doing this summer?

    This weekend there is a charity power run in clayton ny. I think 135 boats. Should be loud and lots of waves. I think I will watch from my deck. But I probably will hear them like they are sitting next to my house. Lol. There some of the most powerful and expensive boats on the east coast here. I think a few from the west coast too. Going to be interesting.
  13. Pics from the Matapedia Valley !!!

    That's too bad about hunting the young moose. The problem I see is with logging roads and windmill roads the hunters can get to areas that weren't acceptable years ago. I use to go north of the gouin area by fly in planes. The only way to the lakes. Now with a GPS you can drive the logging roads. Long drive but I believe people do it.

    Hello JG Hot here too. No rain in a week here. Question, will them little bulls be shot or harvested this fall or will the hunters let them walk? They are kinda cute right now and don't seem to mind getting their picture taken LOL. I like the cat picture too. Do they get trapped or are they protected. Have a good summer. George
  15. My new Mistress...from the beginning.

    With all the equipment installed have you calculated your gross weights. Sounds like it will be heavy. Going to be something special for sure tho. Don't let it take up your snowmobile time. As for our sleds we made a enclosed trailer for them a few years ago that is sealed tight enough to keep to everything out. Don, have a good summer. Please post finished pictures of your new truck. It's going to be a beast for sure.
