  1. Winter Preparations

    Very cool reading about the salt mine. The only one in Quebec. Jack & Sandi
  2. April 14, 2018 Snowmobile Run

    Yes we are jealous. Like you say, what a run for April 14th! And I bet you didn't see much traffic. Jack & Sandi
  3. Joyeux 56th Groomer!

    We are late but happy birthday and thank you for all of the effort that you and all of the other groomers do to make our vacations in Quebec so wonderful. Cheers Jack & Sandi
  4. Looking great at 15,000 miles. The sled has been good to you. It is amazing the miles you can do on the wonderful trails in Quebec. Have a fantastic summer and thanks for the posting and the pics. Jack & Sandi
  5. Speed Limit 70 kmh (42 mph)

    Phil, how did you know? That is what I do for work so I can go snowmobiling. I paint parking lots and have to wait until the paint is dry before I open up the lot to traffic. Jack & Sandi
  6. Speed Limit 70 kmh (42 mph)

    I agree that staying right is more important than the speed. If the opposing sleds are on their respective side of the trail, they won't crash where if both sleds are in the middle, speed isn't a factor. They are going to hit each other. 50 kph in Ontario, ugh! Thankfully it isn't enforced much. Really, a fine for wearing a scarf? Jack & Sandi
  7. Speed Limit 70 kmh (42 mph)

    It would be more appropriate on most trails. Jack & Sandi
  8. I just read MikeRider's post regarding radar on trail 85 on the rail bed. It made me start thinking about the Provincial speed limit of 70 kmh (42 mph). I understand the Police want to keep everyone safe. I'm all for safety too but radar on the rail bed? In town, busy areas where there are a number of road crossings, where there may be pedestrians that also use the trail, high traffic areas, etc. These are places that an accident has the potential of hurting someone else. I'm in favor of keeping the speed down in areas like this. The way sleds have improved over the years as far as handling, starting and stopping is far superior to what we rode 20 or 30 years ago. The way trails have been opened up so visibility is better, the signage is better and grooming is fantastic brings into question the practicality of an overall Provincial speed limit of 70 kmh. Maybe the Provincial speed limit of 70 kmh should be revisited and reassessed. Trails that are on rail beds, rivers, lakes and the such are much safer than the trails that are barely wide enough to allow two sleds to pass each other twisting thru the trees and yet many of these twisty trails aren't posted with a lower speed limit so their limit is the same as a rail bed. The speed limit was determined many years ago when the Provincial trail system was in its infancy and had an entirely different look to it. In yesteryear, the trails were narrow and twisty. When you did have a straight away, it would be so bumpy you still couldn't go very fast. The old sled suspensions also limited your speed because they didn't have the travel or sophistication that the new sleds have. Back then, 60 mph was flying. You were holding on so you wouldn't lose control. Now a days, 60 mph on these super trails is just cruising along and not hardly feeling a bump. Imagine what it would be like in your truck on the interstate with a speed limit of 45 mph because that is what the speed limit was on the secondary roads before the interstate system. What do you think? Please post if you would like. Just our 2¢. Jack & Sandi
  9. Team Vermont in British Columbia

    Amazing scenery and the snow at 20' deep! I'm a trail rider but that sure does look like fun to the 10th degree. The rider in the "deep" snow looks like the sled is a submarine and he is standing on the bridge fin on top. Cool! Jack & Sandi
  10. Team Vermont in British Columbia

    If one of the magazines is looking for a photographer, they don't have to look very far. Wow! Is that with a smart phone or a real camera? You picked a beautiful spot that was untouched. Unbelievable! Jack & Sandi
  11. We're jealous! The life of the retired snowmobiler looks good. Enjoy the trails and have one on us. Jack & Sandi
  12. Last Run of 2017\2018

    We went to RDL March 2nd to the 6th. Busy out there. We saw Mike plus many others. A lot of people heading to Gaspe but not us. Conditions were soft near the river but 10 miles out and the trails were fine. Jack & Sandi
  13. Last Run of 2017\2018

    No we haven't been out to Gaspe in a few years. Sandi doesn't like the heights on the north shore and the avalanche zone. I would like to take another trip out there and ride the interior. We have pretty much stayed on 5 the perimeter trail when we have been there. Jack & Sandi
  14. March 9th-11th Chenail Du Nord adventure.

    Looking good guys. We're following along in our armchairs wishing we were still riding but maybe not in the deep stuff. Jack & Sandi
  15. Last Run of 2017\2018

    I've been scanning thru a little. I haven't looked at Gaspe lately. Mike has been posting on Bas St Laurent. Take a look there. Jack & Sandi
