    Trip question

    Cabanon to the river matawin, back in the late 80's and early 90's always read around 100 to 102 miles on my sleds, but you know the speedometers were probably off by 10 percent...180 each way, still amazing when you think 4 trips, on those old suspensions, it a hell of a day even today.

    Trip question

    The best official, documented miles in a day, in Quebec, early 1990's...Dennis, the owner of Le Cabonon and Lee, the former owner of Bistro St Zenon, left Le Cabonon for River Matiwin thru the park on 360 and back to Le Cabonon on Mack Z's...4 TIMES IN 1 DAY.....YOU DO THE MATH.....800 MILES!! when you think about the miles it seems impossible...then you think about the park and 75 to 80 is very doable on that trail of 100 miles. They were done at 6 30 pm, and very tired, years later Lee said he would never do any thing like that again. You can hear all kinds of stories, I know this one to be fact and I know with today's sleds, it could easily be done on the very same trail...just have to have nice grooming and no traffic.

    I sure hope that this is just a late April fools joke, hopefully Trudeau is much smarter than this. A 25 % tax on Americans will most certainly hurt Canadians more than anyone. All the folks in business are basically running their ass' off paying taxes and insurance and trying to make a living and certainly do not need this kind of HELP?? Trump has made some bad decisions, especially with Canada and all our wonderful friends North of the border, but I can assure you IT IS NOT THE WAY THE AMERICANS REALLY FEEL OR WANT THINGS.Following Trumps lead is a mistake, we all know every day is a day closer to all this garbage ending. Most of us really enjoy our trips to Canada, our friends there, and it is a wonderful escape from all this garbage, hope this is not true!!
  8. you will absolutely pay more for buying it on the trail, you will even see that sign out on the trail, you can buy a pass at the hotel just over the suspension bridge crossing from the Gaspie to N- B at Point Crossing, if you are going to Moose Valley thru Kedgewick River.

    Which trip is best???

    Godbout also ferries to Matane, I think it is the same boat that goes to Baie Comeau.

    Whats everybody doing this summer?

    Mike, you have him trained well, he'll never go on the furniture when your not home!!

    Interesting article printed in Snowgoermagazine in 2015...

    Yes, this is a great trail and with the ferry to Matane you can combine it with the North shore of the Gaspie and have it all!!

    New Warming Hut

    I hope that means that 355 will get more grooming, it is a wonderful trail, but when it is not groomed...you wish you went a different way.
