ahhahaha

easier for everyone...no papers to work with ...

but strangely , before lunch i was at the gas station where i park the groomer....and the guy there ,told me that a couple in their late 60's...came to buy their trail passes....

they don t have internet ...so , the secretary at the gas station did it for them with her computer 

so , i guess they are nt the only without a internet

bought it from a guy from rimouski ...and the neighbor of the guy said he was riding only in his yard !!!...its a 69 !!!

including the original cover to put on the sled.

must be the year after...they put kind of a '' o' ring ' in the hole of the front ski ....tough on the hands when pulling 

 

-21c earlier today ...up to -12c right now...very-very light snow falling
