  3. Thought I would post some current info on the LSJ area to chibougamau trail. I've seen the topic before, thought this might help someone. Ran it today 1-28-20. 243km from last gas in La Dore to 1st gas in chiboug. Lumber camp approx 94 km north of last gas in LaDore. Camp has gas, I didn't need it so I can't report if it was cash only or credit only. But there was a line of sleds. The camp still has a heated room with tables to eat your picnic lunch at. No more vending machines or bathroom, that we could find. They did have a couple of microwaves. About 20km north of the camp is a short, well signed and groomed trail that leads to a nice roadside heated restroom building. Made my wife happy.🙂
  4. Happy Birthday JG, 1st pic (real time) from flatland Ohio. Next pics from west shore of Lake Huron then Georgian bay, last pic from Kincardine ont, on east shore of Huron. Pics for you groomer. Order may be messed up, remember it's the thought that counts. Have a good day!!! Jeff and Sandy
  5. No..... thank you groomer!! Hope you enjoy your summer...until next year Jeff & Sandy
  6. If today is your last run for the season, it looks like you had a beautiful day for it. Glad you didn't have to shovel. As usual, thanks for all the pics. Whats your prediction on when you can get to your cabin by quad?
  7. We are also upgrading to gen4 chassis next year. I have an old set of Katahdin saddlebags ( no longer available) and the skidoo 40L tunnel bag. That set up works good for me, saddlebags over shoulder, tunnel bag has nice handle. Her sled I'm considering changing. She also has the 40L tunnel bag. When her old skidoo saddlebags gave up the ghost we replaced them with the 45L combo bag. Nice bag but not convenient to attach or carry. I've heard good things about the 62L trunk, but not sure if it could replace her total 85L of present storage space. I was considering the 80L tunnel bag from skidoo. Has anyone seen or have 1st hand info on this bag. When ever we change bags I always go back to my canoeing roots and think how well a boundary ( waterproof rollup bag) would do. I've seen some guys going this route. Any input appreciated
  8. I never get tired of random trail pics. Thanks for posting.👍

  10. Thanks for taking the time to share your adventure with us. You are a lucky group of friends to be able to enjoy, what for most of us would be the trip of a lifetime!
  11. It looks like just under 250km from gas in LaDore to gas by the highway before chibougamau. Probably doable with many sleds today, assuming your not in fresh snow. Although I know a topped up fuel tank makes me happy.
  12. Daredog, was the gas pump manned at the lumber camp? I had heard that it was self service credit card only this year. I was worried because not all canadian card readers will take american cards. You have to use them inside and they require a signature. Just wondering for next yr. Thanks jeff and sandy
  13. If thats your new yellow groomer, I don't like it. It seems to be removing too much snow.
  14. GT, we too, have been following your adventure. We were traveling during the same period of time. We layed over in Matane for 3 days after looping the gaspe, waiting for better trails. We rode to RDL on thursday. We must have been just ahead of you, because we saw that group at the clubhouse when we stopped for a break. They were just eating. Friday we rode back to Bernieres. We were amazed how quickly the trails were in such good conditions after the storm. Maybe next year pur paths will cross. Thank you for taking the time to post such a good report, and the pics of groomer in action were cool! Jeff and Sandy
