  1. Thank you. An early thanksgiving gets the best Birds.😁😁😁😁
  2. 52 km detour via the 323 to Labelle and then the 325 which is actually the pitit train du Nord as is the 63 where they join up.
  3. Fuse not sure the exact spot but I guess it is in that general area. Guys are asking on Face book exactly where but nothing pinpointed yet except the article does say the Depanneur / resto-bar LaMacaza is the last commercial stop before the closure.
  4. Looks like a loss of access on private land will make the 63 a dead end at La Macaza for this season unless a solution is found.
  5. Going to be hard for snowmobile haters to shut this part down, the noise from the traffic on the 117 hwy far exceeds the noise of today’s sleds.
  6. I have no idea how they will do that, I know that the original plan required at least one bridge type structure along the route, I want to see where they end up. Shortly after they closed that section of the Petite Train de Nord, we ran up the 117 median a few times, talk about some tight places past blasted rock in there.
  7. They started clearing brush this week on the new by pass from Tremblant to St Faustin that will reconnect Tremblant to St Agathe. It runs along side of the 117.
  8. I don’t know about your Medicare etc but a friend who was up here the other year broke his ankle. He did have some kind of travel or private insurance that would reimburse him and they confirmed it at the time of the accident, but all costs here in Quebec paid up front with a credit card.
  9. Grumpy I doubt the trail will ever pass there again. In the old days the owner was an avid snowmobiler as was most of us, not much chance of the land being sold, it probably just gets handed down. Lots of rumours but originally what I heard was a fight between the owner and the president of the now defunct St Agathe club was the main reason and they had been freinds. Last winter I had the opportunity to sit down with the owner of the Fort west paint ball park who just happened to have the unfortunate luck of buying the Relais des Pin and changing the name around the time of the closure. In discussing the lost trail and asking if he thought there was any chance of getting it open again, he said he had talks with the owner blocking the trail and the owners grand son even worked at Fort West last summer. Turns out that grand son narrowly missed being hit by a speeding snowmobile when he was younger and that prompted the closure. The family apparently has nothing against snowmobiles and nothing against Fort West, they just never want snowmobiles passing on their land again. I guess that fits in with what I heard.
  10. That’s the one JG. Think you feel old, I was running that section up from the highway running north and past Barkmere on a 1971 Olympic before it was ever common to groom trails. From there it took a somewhat different route but went to Tremblant and down to St Faustin. Come to think of it, 2 inch suspension travel and Un-groomed trails no wonder I feel old!😁😁
  11. Yes, 10-15 min from my place on the old trail passing near Bark Lake. They still serve and try to cater to snowmobiles but not the same as the way the trail goes now they are no longer in a practical spot.
  12. I can’t wait to try it out either JG, now if we could just get back the trail lost between here and the relais ( Fort West now ) and we would be back to 35 minutes to Tremblant.
  13. Here is the latest from the club in charge of the project. Basically what it says is the submissions were opened studied and awarded. Work will commence in the coming weeks and will be finished for the month of October 2019, ready for the 2019 2020 season following the contract agreement.
  14. Cool, Going to be a long summer I guess.
  15. Cause we’re suckers for punishment?😁
  16. Grumpy my basement is water free, never got in, just a few trickles ran across the floor from the boarded up windows and chimney. When do you get the new sled?
  17. At this time of year I have to say OUCH!
  18. Guessing it all depends if they had a contact # or email address for your trail pass info, or if the had both guessing I don’t know squat!😁
  19. Two words ”snow golf”!😁
  20. You will have a vip trail sticker for next year and only fresh groomed trails were ever you point tour sled!😀
  21. Yup first stuff out of the garage, I got to ride my bike, ride my sleds and drive my tractors all in one day, too bad it was only to high ground up the road.👍
  22. Hey guys you may get an email like this in your in box. It is a survey about your snowmobile experience and expenses on your Quebec trip. While the email is all in French if you scroll down to cliquer ici, it will bring you the survey and there you will find a choice to complete it in French or English. Seems to me responding can only help our cause.
  23. Ha,ha on the spray foam. There are those that have lost everything, I really feel for them. We on the other hand have no damage just a a lot of work moving stuff to keep ahead of the flood and work to put stuff back, One wet garage that we emptied in time and will dry out and lastly lots of flood debris to clean up outside.
  24. My pontoon boat stored on it’s trailer in the back away from the lake was floating! water has gone down close to 4 feet over the last few days and while higher than a normal flood easy to take.
