I know it may sound crazy but some of my most memorable trips have been in monstrous storms  and off trail boon docking....I will admit I have been lucky...probably took a few risks that were not advisable....but it's been a great adventure.

One trip that was memorable last winter was a 2 day getaway with my wife.  We unloaded at the Hill and Gully riders clubhouse in Mulgrave et Derry.  Road north to Mont Laurier and then looped back to the truck on day two.  Found two really neat covered bridges on a club trail south of Mont Laurier.  Grooming was excellent and found some awesome logging roads that were groomed to perfection.  Anyways we ended up riding in freezing rain for the last hour of the day.  No big deal till we tried to drive home.  Coming out of the clubhouse on gravel mountain roads.  Me in a hurry made one too many right turns and ended up mistakingly headed north further into the mountains instead of south to the Ottawa River.  Came down one hill trailer in tow that dropped a couple hundred feet.  It had a nice little s bend in it.  ABS never shut off top to bottom.  As I'm coming through the valley at the bottom nothing but hill ahead.  So on the gas got it up to about 70 and she barely climbed the hill.  Finally came to my senses at the top.  Time to stop and assess.  Got out and walked (skated really) to scout out what laid ahead.  Road gets steep going downhill again and has a big bend in it.  Nope something isn't right.  No cell service to bout.  So we unhook, swing the truck and trailer around and very slowly ride back down the hill where we came from with one wheel in the snow bank the whole way down.  Just enough snow there to hold things steady, but its rainibg hard and freezing up just as quickly.  Now I'm in a valley between two hills.  Debate for a minute and decide first I need to sort out where I went wrong.  I unload my sled and head back out the road to figure things out.  Find my mistake and head back in.  The roads had been sanded, but the rain was freezing a layer of ice over the salt and sand.  So up and down the hill I run with the sled using the track to chew the ice up and bring the sand up top.  It works, load the sled up and out we made it.  Highways were arguably just as bad until we got to a lower elevation.  All in all one scary drive (never been that nervous driving and I've took off in lots of storms), but still a great trip.  I was thoroughly impressed with the trails in the Papineau Labelle Wildlife Reserve.  Will definitely return.
