  1. This works...forget the other nonsense.
  2. Bingo no excuse with the technology today to not have some type of communication device especially in the backcountry all this could have been avoided.
  3. It’s a big help the curfew. Not saying no one is out riding, but very few after 10pm and it gives the trail time to set up nicely after it’s groomed no doubt. It is one good thing about curfew, that and when i get called out it’s like a scene from the walking dead (minus the dead walking) with no one on the road. I kinda like it that way.
  4. Cold but fun. Got home just as the real rush was starting. Nice test of the Mrs. new gear. Big snow they say tomorrow. Let’s hope so. Trails decent actually much better than I was thinking.
  5. It’s just a shit show and they have no clue what they are doing. The stewardess is in the pilots seat. Hang on. Seriously what a waste of time. Testing is bullshit.
  6. He had said in the past that the day he disagreed with how things were being handled he would leave. The past few weeks before his resignation he was at the press conferences but, did not speak hardly at all. He stated in the past he would resign before he would lose his credibility. As for his replacement...yet to be known. Probably they will find a real puppet.
  7. Yes 100%. Both of them are no smarter than a box of rocks.
  8. -30c this morning kept quite a few inside.
  9. Message from one of the sledders....... Details of the January 15 snowmobile outing. Normally in January we leave early to return early due to the short window of light available. Yesterday we left around 10 am due to the cold for a route that we thought was feasible with the weather we had. We were 6 experienced local snowmobilers and the ambition was to be back before nightfall. A non-remote loop route within 4 km of our cabins was on the menu. The first hours were challenging but the fun factor was very high. The sun pampered us, the terrain and snow was amazing. We had only one idea at the start and that was to complete this short route at the high level of difficulty without the option of retracing our steps. We had overcome some steep losses in elevation over very short distances and this is precisely what made us postpone the decision to turn back, fearing the significant effort required to overcome this elevation on the way up. Around 3:30 p.m. we arrived above a steep waterfall surrounded by huge rocks and dense wood. It was at this point that we decided that we were going to retrace our steps. From that moment we joined our efforts to come back... We shoveled, sawed, pulled and pushed together to overcome the most technical sections. At no time were we in danger, lost or injured but unfortunately we did not have our satellite devices to inform. In the event of frostbite or injury, we would have initiated a different scenario to request help and establish an emergency plan. We hydrated and helped each other as best we could to carry out the plan. At the exit of the creek, 3 locals had located us and helped ease our return. Lessons learned : - Even if the route seems short and feasible, always leave equipped with what you need to get by. - Always tell someone the area you plan to go to. - Despite our constant progress, a satellite communication device would have been used to inform that we were not in danger. So touching to see how important and fast the mobilization, solidarity and efforts have been. Thank you very much!!! From the bottom of my heart ✨🤗 Relay the chapel AIRMEDIC Ski Doo
  10. https://www.lequotidien.com/2022/01/16/six-motoneigistes-portes-disparus-pres-des-monts-valin-efb5d85d1129a6f3ee238b9ecb1e2a7f?utm_campaign=lequotidien&utm_medium=article_share&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR33d0AVXTer0qNgd3PTTBo-WxcoBFt0igfqg2_6uW5dlzpB-TLl0BiCXRU Six snowmobilers missing near Monts-Valin Six snowmobilers are missing north of the Saguenay, from the Monts-Valin. The men left the La Chapelle relay around 9 a.m. Saturday morning to do an off-trail loop and did not return as planned for dinner. At 8 p.m., the Sûreté du Québec was carrying out checks in order to plan a potential deployment. A report was made around 6 p.m. to the Sureté du Québec by the family of the missing. According to information from the co-owner of the La Chapelle relay, Mylène Aubry, experienced snowmobilers could find themselves within a radius of five kilometers from Lac l'Abbé. “We are aware of the situation and are in the process of assessing preliminary information and doing checks to find out who they are and what route they are taking. This will guide if we make a possible intervention, “commented Hélène St-Pierre, information officer at the Sûreté du Québec. The situation led to a major mobilization of citizens. Snowmobilers have gone in search of the six people and some citizens are even offering aerial patrols. Teams are currently patrolling the area alternately. If the snowmobilers are still missing on Sunday morning, several enthusiasts have volunteered to carry out a search and at least two pilots have offered to fly over the search area. The fact that six snowmobilers are missing was first reported on the relay's Facebook page. The publication had been relayed nearly 6,000 times at 9 p.m.
