  1. Ford currently does this with its F150's running on those ecoblow engines. You can use forscan software to shut it off. A stretch...but while at a gas station fueling up during moose hunting season, a fellow pulled in towing a utility trailer on which was a 5 cubic foot freezer and a small generator which was running to keep the freezer going. The small generator would burn very little fuel. Tow one behind your electric sled and charge as you go. Works for locomotives too - diesel to dc electric.
  2. Some nice places for sale there. Given the upswing in prices of vacation property in parts of Ontario, you could buy one of those lodges listed for the equivalent price of a summer cabin - or camps as we call them where I come from - and not open them as a business - use as your year round vacation home.
  3. Depending on how much you want to spend, in the same area with trail running through the property is this place: https://www.auchaletenboisrond.com/en/ The roquemont is basically a motel - as opposed to having your own chalet/hot tub etc. https://www.auchaletenboisrond.com/en/cottages-for-rent English spoken, cook your own meals or order in. Wife will like it much better. Plenty of trails. Fuel in St. Raymond or bring your own gas cans. With regard to the St. Zenon mention above, snow if more consistent north of the seven falls area. Try this place: https://condoslactaureau.com
  4. Merci! Was in that area three season's ago in my first year of riding Quebec. Good memories of the Condos at lac Taureau and the trails north and south.
  5. Not to beat the wasp nest with a stick...but my future border crossing friends...keep yourself clear of these "elements" that have come to life lately...you might be getting a few extra questions and checks at the border... January 10, 2021 Feds looking at declaring Proud Boys a terrorist organization in wake of U.S. rioting https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/feds-looking-at-declaring-proud-boys-a-terrorist-organization-in-wake-of-u-s-rioting-1.5259790 Further, in a separate interview, Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said the federal government is “reflecting on what additional measures could be taken” to protect Canadian democratic institutions from future extremism and violence on display in the U.S. this past week. I am not picking a fight, arguing, or anything of that nature on this forum with this post....just be aware of what you might be running into trying to cross the border in the future.
  6. Your prize is a personal key for the nearby warm up station and the inflatable outhouse next to it! I was impressed with the propane heater in the building - many are wood fired but the propane enabled instant warmth when you stepped in.
  7. No trails? Had a bad week of rain one February and stove off the blues by putting this together....your kids might like it as well.... Instructions - print and cut out: Paper-Snowmobile-Project.pdf
  8. The folk singer? Sorry momentarily confused....I was thinking of Gilles Vigneault....a winter song...not sure where he is from...he starts to sing about 40 seconds in past the stringed instruments.... Mon pays, ce n’est pas un pays, c’est l’hiver Mon jardin, ce n’est pas un jardin, c’est la plaine Mon chemin, ce n’est pas un chemin, c’est la neige Mon pays, ce n’est pas un pays, c’est l’hiver Meanwhile here's another spot for you.... This is close by.... ?
  9. You are correct sir!....I remember you liked that area a couple of years ago now I think. The first picture is the trail to La Pociatiere and that "pingo" would be seen from hwy 20. Incidentally if you are planning to stay in one of the motels there, make sure this trail is open as the geography does not lend itself well to low snow conditions and it is the only sled trail out of town. The middle picture is on a main trail south of St Jean Port Joli.
  10. close but more to the east
  11. OK ...close by where ? BTW the pics are all from the same general area...iceman seems to need some cheering up...☺️
  12. Some clues...guess the general area...
