  1. I don’t recall seeing one in my inbox, could you let me know if I’m up to date or need to be.
  2. Triggerhappy I don’t have much riding experience out of Shawinagan so I can’t speak much of that area. Most of my/our riding is not in the trail network and done in back country roads and pathes north of Mt.Laurier and St.Zenon, I know these areas very well and have done a lot of riding up there. Cabanon would be a good location to do loops out of and/or a 3-4 day trip, Ste Anne du Lac good to start trips from too Rabaska as well good for loops and trips. Cabanon and Rabaska would be safer parking when leaving for a few days all though I haven’t experienced or heard any bad reports of SAdL. In the past I’ve started a few trips out Relais Windigo by the falls but that place burned down a few years back and so we park in SAdL behind the motel and ride out to Rabaska or up to Lunic and beyond, more options there. There’s a new atv/snowmobile bridge built last year crossing the Riviere Lapin so getting to Mekoos on atv from SAdL is now possible with out having to go 10 klms south on the highway risking a ticket to catch a backroad up to Mekoos. An interesting ride out of Cabanon, follow the sled trail up to the dam then on up to Repos and Kanawata, visit Casey and the runway. There’s even underground bunkers around the Casey runway that are interesting visits. Out of SAdL or Rabaska head up ch Lepine to Clova then on to Martins on the reservoir Gouin, from there head west, some nice dams and dykes to see and you can return via Balbuzard back to Ch. Lepine, more runways to see over there too. Good luck with your ventures
  3. Yes I remember, trail started north by the Venison farm between Weir and Arundel while riding along side of the highway. From Pincourt to St.Jovite going up through that trail it was taking us just under 4 hours and a full tank of gas back then. My god I’m getting old. Lol
  4. Would that be the old Relais Des Pins that turned into a paintball place?
  5. I hear Zuesand, it seams we’ll have to log in that odometer reading before starting the trip like back in the day with analog gauges and do the math at the end of the trip.
  6. Did you check what it will he like in 2 weeks.
  7. This helmet certainly has my interest, field of vision and warmth it claims but based upon my own experiences riding with others who have invested I think I’ll stand down before the test pilots have completed their reports (complaints) and BRP has acted upon them before I invest. This helmet has got issues that are far too disappointing when out riding for days on end, I hope they can pull it together for better results from you test pilots for the second season on the market.
  8. Saw that on FB CNC, this going to be a good thing to the snowmobile industry and I can’t wait to try it out next season.
  9. A drop in the bucket for a guy who probable sold his business for 10’s of millions. His yearly riding expenses are probable worth just one month of interest. Toodles to the guys success and happiness.
  10. I thinks it’s time you get out of the wine cellar there buddy.
  11. We took that muddy single road for less than 1 klm and were back on the trail, saved us an hour of riding down through Portneuf, skiis were punished for sure! Wish we had a pic cuz I know someone here that would’ve been proud of me. Lol!
  12. Last evening together pow wow splits the group in 2. Jackstraw and a Eric head east to Mattawin while Phil myself and Scranton head north for the hills (more snow colder temps and no towns). Our 6 am departure from the Roquemont would put these boys at the trucks early enough for their long haul home so I pass the message to Mrs.Trailblazer I’ll be home early. Trails are freshly groomed from the night before and are hard as a rock as temps went well below freezing overnight. Well that’s it I jinxed it with the premature message cause not long into the morning departure one of us loses a scratcher and begins to overheat. While stopping every 2 miles to wait 10 minutes for thing to to cool down is not an option, out comes the spare scratcher and we jimmy rig it to the A arm with some hose clamps twist ties and tie wraps, not pretty but did the job for a while. 11:30 arrival at Mattawin we all take care of business and say our good byes, Scranton and Phil are on the black top while I’m just finishing up I see Jackstraw and Eric pull in, did our good byes (hugs’n kisses NOT) and as I’m walking past the Auberge I see 3 sexy looking A/Cs parked in front. 73 LT1 355 360. Snow storm just kicking in as we were arriving. Not long long after black top departure I stop for a lunch break while and while chowing down I’m scrolling through FB, I see a post from low and behold Towing non the less saying he’s stopped in Mattawin for lunch and his sled parked beside those sexy triplets from the photo he posted. Time on the post puts him there about 10 minutes after we left. If we had of known.
  13. Got to see Playhard Bullwinkle but unfortunately he darted off to quick for a snap shot.
