  1. That chevreuil looks tres petit for this time of year, I bet the snow is making it hard to find something to snack on. Is there a deer hunting season in your neck of the woods JG?
  2. Somebody help QR out....he is trying to post a picture of the first ride of the year. I can't hold my breath any longer...
  3. Continental breakfast...a good friend of mine calls that a bird breakfast...The night before we took a cab to the Royal, it was worth getting back out for. The garage is handy. I seem to recall my stomach grumbling the whole way down the tracks to LSQ the next morning. Pizza place was closed, damn, off to Senneterre, by the time I got there I think I would have eaten shit on a stick. Maybe that's why the flank steak was so special at Faillon that night. One a side note, I beleive the ballet is across the road from the Nordic. We did not go inside so I can't comment on the caliber of the establishment. Andre and Genevieve are really something at Ombre du Vent in Parent. As indicated in previous replies, they go the distance for sure. Breakfast at the Central with everybody else in town in the morning. I usually get them to deliver food the night before, trick is to indicate the tip will be large. Be careful if the dishwasher lady delivers it though, she's a pretty wild driver.
  4. Maybe try chalets et spa lac st jean instead of chateau roberval, the rest looks good to me
  5. Funny. Guilty on both counts...lol The SQ spent the night in the building across the road. In the morning it was so cold we tried to take a picture of the group on front of the place, but all you see was headlights poking through the smoke and steam coming off the sleds. I will see if I can find it to post again, it think I did years ago.
  6. Agreed, best in March on both counts. Two years ago we pulled off the Gaspe/North Slope trip using the ferry twice. It really was not that bad. Understand about the intrepidation for those who have a Monday morning responsibility that cannot be broken. If the ferry is running as planned, which seemed like a big if last year, the greatest concern would be a large storm. As a point of reference, if I had to choose between the 2, Gaspe would be by far the one I would make a priority. The north slope is pretty bland. Sure the bridge in baie comeau is cool, but the trail itself is rather dull. The highlight was the width of the trail between port Cartier and Sept isles. The rollercoaster ride around Godbout is over rated.
  7. Thinking more about your route. The highest probability on having a good trip to Abitibi using the Cab as a starting place, would be to head north to the repos then west to L'Abitibi through Manawan, you avoid the whole shit show down south that way. Might be a 30 mile rough stretch around Manawan, but once you pop out by Lunics where the othe club takes over it will be smooth sailing. Stay at Meekoos then head west on 63 as previously stated and enjoy the best Quebec has to offer in Abitibi. On your way back east from say... Amos, stay at Faillon, then drop down to Kanawata then back to the truck at the Cab. The Atmosphere in Amos is decent. Heck you might bump into Jim and his wife Mrs. Jamieson having lunch at the Atmoshoere, I met him there once upon a time.
  8. Stayed at Paquin in Belleterre once years ago. Two ladies ran the place. Clean and well fed, but not much to talk about. Definitely do not turn right up 309 to val dor using rapid Sept, that is a misnomer, there is nothing speedy about 309, twisty at best and the dam crossing is a steel deck, hard on the carbides is putting it lightly. For what it's worth, I always take 63 to 386 to 83 and back the same way. As gsx stated, 63 west of 386 can be late getting started and might not be a grooming priority. Although I hear La Bannik in ville marie is worth the trip. If you decide to take 386, when you head left crossing route 117 take it easy on the hills, they are pretty serious, more so than the stretch between Baie Comeau and Godbout every body raves about.
  9. The local that heads through the chics chocs and leads to Murdochville is scenic, bit if it has not been groomed recently it can be rough, we toughed it out a couple years ago and ran into Alain and Krikri at the summit, funny place to say high for the first time.
  10. Hey Fuse, I would go all the way down 595 and stay at Le Francis, then head up 597. The downfall is that the trip on 5 between 595 and 597 is not all that memorable, although the steak there rivals the bavette at 100 Lacs, and the shower is much nicer.
  11. That was tres amusant. Merci jean guy pour le fun Same some neige in dannemora aujourd'hui. Wont be trop longetemps now.
