  1. I’m unsure of the range for a 900 turbo in good conditions. Have taken it out to 130 miles. Not sure if it would make 150? Save your windshield washer bottles, or ante up for a LinQ gas can.
  2. Funny, I was going to ask the same question. I believe I stayed at Caribou back in 2005 on my way caribou hunting. Not the Ritz for sure, but will get the job done. Obviously trip planning season has arrived.
  3. Seems pointless to be providing proof of vaccination that in most cases are in the neighborhood of two years old. But hey, I’ll do what I need to do to ride the best trails in the world. Like many things these days on both side of the border, it makes no sense to me.
  4. I’ve had good luck with Klim gloves. When it is cold, 10 and below, I used gauntlets. A few years back I bought my wife a pair of Klim mittens. Her hands would get cold easily and she did not feel comfortable using gauntlets. One night we were on our way back to the truck after having dinner. It was minus 10. She had her mittens on, I was just wearing gloves. My gauntlets were in my bag. I didn’t feel like putting them on figuring it was only 15 miles back. My hands were getting pretty cold and I stopped a few times to see if she was ok. Each time she said her hands were toasty warm. We got back to the truck and my hands were hurting cold. My wife took off her mittens and put her hand to my cheek. Her hands were toasty warm. I decided to give mittens a try and bought a pair of Klim Caribou mittens. It’s unbelievable how warm your hands are in mittens vs. gloves. The guys in my group all made fun of me at first…do those mittens come in pink, etc. etc. Funny how they all have mittens now. I’m a fan of Klim products. All six of us are head to toe…and hands walking Klim billboards.

  6. In the US these days, adding the new pipe would be considered a pipeline. That would be shutdown. Joe has a pen for that. Kidding aside, that is some serious flooding.
  7. Think about the diesel for the groomers. There will probably be some sort of fuel surcharge added to the trail permits. I’ve been trying to fill up my truck when I still have 3/4 of a tank just so I don’t have to re-swipe my card. Missed the other day, 16 gallons of diesel, $100. I sure picked a fine time to retire!
  8. Proof of vaccination is still required. Testing is no longer required.
  9. Bravo for Team Iceman. What a great two weeks! Thanks for letting us ride along.
  10. Love Motel Le Delice. Ice is right, a warm friendly atmosphere. Back in 2011, we were there, finished dinner and back to our rooms to continue/finish happy hour, we hear a sled start up and a lot of hooting a hollering. Look outside and there is a guy riding his sled around in the parking lot in a pair of boots and just his underpants. Lots of pictures being taken by his buddies. I’m sure there was a bet, and some alcohol involved.
  11. There’s always money in the sledding budget! Compensate elsewhere during the rest of the year. The season is too short.
  12. Great news. Hopefully they don’t ever require a 4th booster. I’m pretty much done with vaccination. I agree, Walgreens worked extremely well.
