  1. You are already grooming and I don't have the sleds ready yet! Jack & Sandi
  2. I somehow missed this thread. Now its time to start reading again. Congrats Bill. All of us appreciate what you do for the sport. You have touched the lives of many snowmobilers. Jack & Sandi
  3. Hi Rick, Clova is a good place to stay. Like Gutz said, not many options. Make reservations. You can't see them in the photo above but to the left side there are railroad tracks. They run along side of the restaurant where the Canadian flag is hanging. Don't park your sleds on that side of the restaurant. Sometimes the tracks are covered with snow. Years ago some sledders did. They didn't ride their snowmobiles after the train came into town. We stopped in Clova one night and everything was full. They put us in the barn on the other side of the pond (lake). There were others in the barn with us. Bunk beds, common shower / toilet and a wood stove down stairs. Yes there was a down stairs to the barn. It looked like a fire trap but it was one of the best night's sleep I've had. Enjoy the rustic Canadian wilderness. Jack & Sandi
  4. It sounds like you are hooked now on Quebec! Jack & Sandi
  5. My 2 cents. I've got a 2014 Chevy 2500 that I haven't had any problems with. Knock on wood. It has 180,000 miles on it. It is maintained but nothing out of the norm. I typically use the same brand of diesel but not a fanatic. Is the Bosch system used on all Duramax engines or only some? Jack & Sandi
  6. Hi Steve, The new one is ordered. Pretty much the same, 850 Renegade. Jack
  7. Phone call here the other day. It was a good 15 minutes. It can't hurt to see how much money us crazy Americans spend to go out and freeze our butts off. Add in the trucks, trailers, sleds and everything else we buy here in the U.S. And we do this why? Jack & Sandi

    Thanks Jim & Gemma. Great pics and stories as always. That new sled is going to see a lot of Quebec miles. It was great seeing you at RDL. Have a safe trip home. Jack & Sandi
  9. Oh oh! It just stopped running coming out of that last corner. It felt like it was firing on one cylinder for hundred meters and then came to a rolling stop. Did it run out of fuel? No it was full of fuel 40 miles ago. Blown belt. No. Boy there is a lot of steam coming out from under that right side panel. Hey Mike & Joe, I don't remember seeing the pink snow when the sled stopped. Hmm? The anti-freeze bottle is empty. We can only move the primary clutch about an inch in either direction and it makes a funny clunking sound. 13,000 miles on the 850. I thought these were going to go further than the 800 E-tecs. My last two E-tecs I had 15,000 and 13,500 no rebuilds on either. Sandi isn't with me on this trip. First time she couldn't make it in years. Her new 600R is in the trailer! Should I? Jack & no Sandi
  10. The Team is out again. You have a big following RR. We will be reading. Be safe and have fun! Jack & Sandi
  11. Hi Mike, I see you making points with Valerie. Brilliant! The mayor is trying for free drinks tonight. That Kawasaki brings back memories. I had a 440 fan cooled in my younger days. 72 mph top speed on a good day. Jack & Sandi
  12. Sometimes a heat gun on low will warm up the glue on the back of the sticker and makes removal a little easier. Jack & Sandi
  13. The 900Ts are supposed to be quite the ride. I haven't tried one but from what I have heard they are "quick". I don't remember the last time the belt was changed on my 850. We have over 3,000 miles this season and I know it hasn't been changed this year. I don't even remember it being changed last year. Give us a report on the 900T. Jack & Sandi
  14. Hi Terry & Molly, We love reading along with you. The trails this year have stood up very well after a grooming because of the low temps. I think this has been one of the best seasons for trail conditions. Jack & Sandi
  15. The Godbout portion of trail 3 everyone should experience at least once. I give the groomer compliments to get thru it. You wouldn't send a new guy there. Thanks for the pics and enjoy your ride. Jack & Sandi
