  1. There was a coffee pot…thankfully a previous guest left coffee. The four coffee drinkers in our group certainly appreciated it. I’m sure you will enjoy. Have a great ride.
  2. Pipeman, report.back on Marina Chibougamau. Last time we were there it was still JC Bou. I have often wondered how it is now under the new owners. Thanks
  3. It’s been quite a few years since I was there. Pretty darn sure there is dishes, glasses, pots and pans and silverware. Kind of tough to rent cabins expecting your clients to bring their kitchenware with them.
  4. Send your pass to your files or notes that are stored on your phone. No need for service. Put your phone in airplane mode so you’re not pinging the cell towers. When you are outside of coverage, or have very weak coverage, your cell phone is transmitting at full power to try and make/keep a connection with the network. That’s the battery killer. You can still have Bluetooth active if you’re listening to music stored on your phone. IMotoneige navigation works in airplane mode, you just won’t be able to get services.
  5. That is awesome. Hmm, I have a 2018 600 ACE and a 1970 12/3 in my garage? Problem - I don’t have the talent to duplicate that! Great job!
  6. I just went through creating an account with the ZEC. Website is a bit clunky, but doable. Then I registered for the day that our group of six will travel through the ZEC. It was not expensive for one day, one sled. For a little over $10 USD it wasn’t worth the potential hassle if we were pulled over. Do I agree? - by no means. Do I wonder/worry if other ZECs will follow suit? - absolutely. I think about fellow riders that spend their winters riding in that area. That somewhat insignificant $10/day fee starts to add up. Business starts a downturn as riders avoid the ZEC and their fees. Hopefully businesses, the FCMQ and the government can work together with the ZEC for an agreeable solution and avoid the possibility of other ZECs doing the same.
  7. Gotta love the finger countdown. You stay right, I stay right. No problem.
  8. We’ll be riding through the area on the 7th and 7th. I guess if we don’t see anyone we’ll just pass. If someone is there checking we’ just hand the guy $100 for the six of us and hope that that is acceptable. Not looking for trouble or arguments.
  9. If you open the trail conditions on the iMotoneige app in the area of the ZEC, most if not all of the conditions are listed as acceptable. Click on the trail in that area and there is a note about having to resister with the ZEC.
  10. If the garage is safe enough for a 1967 corvette, then it’s plenty safe for a few pieces of paper!
  11. Yes, or bring in food. Not sure Uber Eats or Grubhub delivers there.
  12. Looking at that picture, one has to wonder, are there really other manufacturers besides BRP?
  13. l’ hombre du vent - awesome cabins, awesome hosts.
  14. Hey Chris, MARKUSVT has a comment in his Team Vermont Midweek thread that mentions that the trail to Gouin was freshly groomed. http://www.quebecrider.com/forums/index.php?/topic/13625-team-vermont-mid-week-travels/
  15. There is gas at Lac Faillon. Then gas in Clova. No problem to Fer a Cheval. Nice run, enjoy.
  16. Awesome report as always. Can’t wait to get up there after reading your reports.
  17. It won’t work without network connectivity. For planning at home. Alain/Towing helped out last time there was a glitch. He knows who to get it to at the FCMQ for the fix.
  18. If you use the web it still rotates. Here’s a link. https://fcmq.fcmqapi.ca/carte-motoneige/indexen.html#map
  19. Windigo is a great place. Best to make reservations as previously stated. They were full for February 7th when I called. Couple of other good places that you could use - Auberge Eva in Lac Bouchette, Chateau Roberval in Roberval, Hotel Du Jardin in St. Felicien, Universal in Alma.
  20. Mine stopped rotating yesterday on both iPhone and iPad.
