don t know much about planes.....but they need a new gas filter.....looking at the contrail.....looks like there s water in the gas tank ...

Same problem with Thunderbirds & Blue Angels over NYC today, low (1,000') and slow (450mph).

2 tight 6-packs, plus a single scout that was probably the ass-kicker in case any dope got in the way.

Merci JG,

GT Snow racer was that model

amazing that you take over 600 pics in an average day, increases your chances of having “a good one” haha.

i was thinking about staying on the zec roads myself, the trail can be a little bumpy at times.  The bulldozer usually makes a nice smooth path, and the grader  keeps it that way, or so we hope...

have you noticed more deer over the years as they migrate further north?  When I am out in the western part of the province I hear all the time places are having deer hunting seasons that never used to see deer

when you say “potholes” in French do you say “nids de poules”?

i had never heard it called a chickens nest before last year, I had to make sure I heard it correctly...lol

as per always... thank you for your photography, like many of us QRs, I check on it all the time 
 

if I had the chance to meet you someday I think I would like to hear more about your stories from the challenge Canada adventures, sounds like those were awesome

George

bonsoir george !!!

 

when i saw the sticker ...gt sno racer...i took a pic...

yaaa...taking 600 pics in a day happen time to time.....3-400 often !!!...i don t keep them all ...i spent the afternoon deleting pics from the last few years....must be very close to 5000 deleted since 1 month ...

 

yaaa...maybe i don t have the right word...potholes......nids de poules ou trous d ' eau ....ahahaha...we hear that often here...specially when roads are rough ...

about the deer...moving north ...no .....but more outside town ...i guess they are looking for fresh food....since 4-5 years....they are more scattered....

riding on the z e c here ....you wont do 200 miles day....but 100 miles easily ...just too bad 4w and s x s are nt allowed anymore on the duniere reserve...nice there ..

and yes ...challenge kanada.....great memories of that ....long hrs day trying to find trails...but fun ...

and sure , ill be happy to tell you stories about that ...
