1 January 2019

have received credible reports from home. 20cm of snow finished with a period of freezing rain. This should be just what we need to get it going here again.

I know the place.  The Villages is a huge community up there.  My parents lived in Homosassa which is just southwest of you for over 27 years.

Trails around here are “good” but they really need cold weather and snow in that order. It was 35 here today 🙁 they are calling for snow Monday night and Tuesday as well as colder weather so fingers crossed. Still haven’t decided on tomorrow’s destination, either 100 lacs or Gouin. Also I was told the 83 from Parent to Relais 22 is open and groomed

What a difference a day makes! Trails were much better today. Cold set in and we rode to Lake Bouchette mostly a white carpet ride on fresh groomed trails. La Tuque 351 to 355 up to here was really nice. Sorry I am not much of a picture taker but trust me it was nice! 7f out now👍 Enjoying supper at Auberge Eva with a few other Quebec riders Skidoo 420 and another.

Hey, totally don't wanna hijack here, just a quick question that a Grassman or a 420man or a Pipeman might be able to quickly dispatch:

What or when is up with dispensaries closer to Trois Rivieres?

Monday Lac Bouchette to old Scooby Raid / Mont Vilian. All trails until close to Mont Vilian were real nice, then no grooming and lacking snow. Today/ Tuesday we stayed on the Monts Valin and it is all excellent, groomers running. We went to Relais Wapishish very nice people and Jeff speaks perfect English. New cottages to stay at also. Sorry no pics because internet here at Auberge 31 is slow.
