    Wife and I took a long walk up on our property today. Have to admit I have not been up in our woods for quite sometime. it was good to get out and get "away" ...if just for a while. Weather and temp was just about perfect for our uphill ascent . We probably spent two hours up there and after sitting on the edge of moss laden ravines, watching water flow through the gullies and seeing nature in it's finest...we both declared how lucky we both are.  Nature knows not much of whats going on with the world nowadays. And neither does the bear that has it's home 1000 ft from our backyard. Probably explains why we had muddy bear tracks in the driveway last fall. Here... three massive piles of shit from this morning and den in the back round. Will be getting and setting up a video cam shortly for some hopefully spectacular footage. 
    Beavers & Bears !!!  I miss Quebec already
    HAPPY Easter to ALL !!!!!!

    I feel weird posting this, but everyone needs a little support right now.
    No-Hair told me that CrazySnow posted on the FaceBook that his father has passed away due to the C-19.
    Many of us remember him on here and if anyone knows him on a more personal level, reach out and let him know we all feel for his loss.
    Be Safe! Stay Home as much as possible.

    towing reacted to GT Rider in How I became a QuebecRider   
    I was just thinking about our first trip around the Gaspe 2002.
    We went without any reservations ( It was the last time I was permitted to do so).
    We started out of the Quality Inn . I had a backpack with a shovel, ropes and flashlight for emergencies. When we stopped for gas at Sainte-Anne-des-Monts the backpack was gone. We went on and as the sun went down we were in Rivière-la-Madeleine. I was informed that I needed to find a place to stay. We went to Pourvoirie Au Paradis de Judes et Diane. The proprietor did not speak English but he showed me to the garage to park my sled. The place was bustling. After dinner on the way to the room I saw two guys that later we would meet on the trail.
    The next day we headed to Perce. The weather was warm. We came down from the mountains into a valley (I cannot remember exactly) and it was flooded. I was wishing I had a boat. We drove through a massive puddle. Soon after it started to rain. We managed to make it to Perce. We were happy to get out of the rain. We stayed at Table Roland. I remember having a great meal. The restaurant was setup more like a cafeteria back then.
    The next morning getting ready to leave I see 4 sleds at the shell station next door. They were all trying to get their machines going. I seems that with all the rain , the gas station had water in the gas. I did not need to get fuel so we head off. It wasn't long before we hit a giant slush zone. I sank like a rock. I carried Gemma to firm snow. My boots filled with water. Then I could hear a couple of machines coming. I tried to point them around the slush. We were all stuck. It was the two guys from the pourvoirie the night before. The three of us managed to move our machines one at a time to firm snow. I thanked them and said goodbye. They insisted we go first just in case.  
    We made our way to the clubhouse in Chandler and took a break. The guys came up behind us and we chatted and had a laugh. I told them I caught a few fishes  in my boots. Gemma and I left ahead of them. Going near Port Daniel On a down slope I got stuck bad. Water was running down hill and took out the trail. The Guys were coming I ran uphill to warn them. They helped me out. Then Rene' came down on the Yamaha. He nearly made it. We got him out quick.  Ghislain Came down on a MachZ and he was determined to make it.
    Now I was not going to let them out of my sight. Twice bailed out. I had planed to stay in New Richmond. We got there early and I did not want to lose  my new guardians. They wanted to ride on so we followed. Things got very slushy again Near Nouvelle. When we got passed it was getting dark. We made our way to the LArverne Clubhouse. Our guardians were trying to find a hotel. There was a lot of phone calls made by the waitress in the club. It turns out that there's nothing within 100 miles. So the cook calls his father and makes arrangements for us to stay with his dad. We had dinner at the club and followed the cook to his fathers house. I was blown away by the hospitality. I will never forget the kindness. The next morning we had breakfast at the clubhouse. Then we made our way to Groomers TQ5. It was perfect of course. When we got to the north the guys went to RDL and we went to Matane. It was 3 1/2 days Ill not forget.  I received a few pics from Rene' via email.

    i just want to go back to Haltaparche and live out my days with Jean-Guy & Gypsie. With all seriousness I wouldn't mind spending the rest of my life there. He's only going to be around a few more years and could get me "up to speed" with everything there. My dream would be to make it like the "Joncas"  or "Meekos"  but only more spectacular. All my friends (snowmobiling) and others would come to visit and we would have a grand ole time.

    3200 kms on new sled, 2400 in Quebec Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, rest in Ontario- I had a crazy busy winter at work but also  had three trips cancelled last minute all for good reasons including last weeks due to Covid. Trails and hospitality were excellent as always, looking forward to some trips in Mt Valin, Saguenay  and Gaspe next season.

    Not sure myself how many miles. Did three solid weeks with the forth dashed by the pandemic. 3-4 K MILES
    Have a real HAPPY PLACE to go to on the off season. Last day of touring Cote Nord  trip #3 left did 2 hour morning  80 mile trip end run on fresh crisp White asphalt groomed trail.
    Weather was blue sky not too cold not too warm. 
    Cruising 80-90 mph elevated terrain with sweeping corners.
    Priceless memory of the site of real estate go by and the tune of the 850 Rotax singing " This is sledding "
    Happy sledding Happy Life to all. Be safe in the off season !
