So just returned from a week up at the Delta with Bill. Trails were great everywhere met FO and his daughter as well as Daniel and his wife Colette. Rode with Daniel Colette and Bill on Monday up to Mt Valin had lunch and came back to the Delta. Tuesday's Bob, Jeff and I rode around the lake. Trails were good on the north side and thinning on the south, If they have a good day of warm sun the trail will be in tough shape. But for now with cold temps (below °) most days, things will stick around for a while. Wednesday we hed up to KM31 and some of the look outs in the area. Unfortunately, though I broke the Helix spring and limpt it back to the hotel from 93 and 262. Back at the hotel, many thanks to Bill for have the tools to pull the Helix and getting to the broken spring. Fortunately Roland Spence & fils had a replacement spring which allowed us to get it all back together and ready for the trails on Thursday our last day to ride, Thursday we head down the south side of the river down 83 to La Baie to see the fishing shantys on the river with the heavy tankers frozen in beside them, quite cool. Then down 383 and over to 301. Had lunch at Relais Station Mont-Edouard for lunch. The place was very busy with lots of kids in their racing gear. Down 301 to 83 back up to 383 to 368 and 83 and back to the hotel. All ran well after the fix.
Again, many thanks to Bill for the tools and a good time chatting. And to Daniel and Colette for being our translators when needed. Until we see you again, Happy trails to you all
