  1. What an amazing adventure. Great pictures! You always gotta remind yourself for most it's also a vacation and to have fun.
  2. Curious has anyone had the pleasure of staying at Chalets et Spa Lac Saint-Jean http://chaletsetspa.com/ or Auberge des iles https://www.aubergedesiles.com/en/ They both seem to be very nice places (with Spa like accommodations) around Lac Saint Jean.
  3. @dooright It's my second season with the Titan (previous lid was a BRP Modular 2)...went through the first season foam issues and poor seal. I run two goggle sets one dark tinted and one clear for at night (having a back up is nice if needed). I don't run the electric googles so i don't have to worry about cables or fuses when your in the middle of nowhere. I've ridden in -40C multiple days, freezing rain and warmer. On really cold days (< -18C I wear two balaclavas to ensure no skin is exposed learned that after some frost bite by only using a single balaclava. I find at higher speeds for hours on end the bill of the helmet does catch the wind and makes the neck muscles a little sore day after day but it's a super light helmet so it does offer some relief from the corner G speeds. If i'd switch it would likely be an oxygen next....I love the tech. But it works well once you set it up right.
  4. Funny how i noticed the same hand signal poster in the cabin with Jim Jamison's name plastered all over it and wondered who might this fellow traveler be.....funny enough here's what i found... https://snoriderswest.com/article/general/travelling_up_north Travelling up north Jim Jamison and his wife, Melissa, are incredibly friendly people who love to go on epic snowmobiling trips Every year, Jim and Melissa Jamison travel from their home in Pennsylvania to Canada to snowmobile for weeks on end.Photo courtesy of Jim and Melissa Jamison Jim and Melissa Jamison live in Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, and they have been snowmobiling together for a very long time. In 1963, their favourite place to sled was the Poconos in northeastern Pennsylvania—a mountainous region that is popular for its recreational offerings. The couple purchased a home there and continued to visit the area each winter for great sledding, but they soon moved on to the Adirondack Mountains in the northeastern part of New York. They bought a home there as well and enjoyed great snow conditions for more than 20 years. Adventurous spirits like to move on, however, and the Jamisons have moved on to Canada. Thirty-one years later, the Jamisons haven’t strayed. They come up to Canada each winter to snowmobile. The couple usually stay in the eastern provinces of Canada, but they have been as far west as Manitoba and have ridden through Ontario numerous times. Eighteen years ago, Jim was asked to look after a few snowmobilers who wanted to ride to Canada, as he had more experience with the region. He agreed and everyone loved it. Soon after, Jim discovered that there was a market for American snowmobilers travelling up into Canada, and Jamison Canadian Snow Excursions was born. In the earlier years, Jim took groups of people on tours to Labrador—a trip that usually took three weeks if they didn’t get stuck in a blizzard. Typically, they put about 5,000 kilometres on each sled. These excursions catered to those who wanted to see the spectacular backcountry of Canada’s eastern provinces, including Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labra-dor—Jim’s personal all-time favourite place to sled. “It is spectacular,” he said. “Of all the snowmobile tours and places that I’ve been, (Labrador) is absolutely (the most) astounding. It is nature’s beauty at its best and it has awesome country.” The couple that sleds together More recently, Jim has taken a step back from his tour groups and goes on only three work trips per year. A tour with his company includes everything from lodging and meals to maps and destinations—all you need is a sled. A typical trip would take sledders through Quebec and New Brunswick, and would last for one week. One of Jim’s reasons for going on fewer work trips is that he wants to concentrate on travelling more with his wife. “Every year we do trips together,” said Jim. “We take one week after Christmas and one week after Thanksgiving. Then, when I am done with my tours, my wife comes up for three weeks with me at the end of the season—next year is Quebec . . . and the Abitibi Canyon in Ontario.”
