RDL/Rimouski updates

Recommended Posts

We rode from RDL to ST Hubert, to Squa  tec, Rimouski areas , than St Gabriel de rimouski, after that back country our way into Moose Valley NB.

 

Good going, but as Groomer had reported the closer you get to Rimouski,  it gets very skinny.

 

But heading south towards Moose valley put us right back into good going.

 

special note, the road from the NB border to the depot Kekegewick river crossing will be plowed for at least one more week, heavy logging on this area of the trail between Moose valley and Amqui

 

Playing in the Moose valley area tomorrow, than??

Happy Trails

Hey Mike do you have dates figured out of when you will be in RDL yet?  Dad and I plan on coming through there sometime early February.  Maybe we can get together for a drink and some stories!

Now that I am retired, I don't plan my trips too far ahead. Just wait for a good forecast and a good day to travel.  When I worked, I knew my vacation schedule months in advance. Wish I could be more precise, it would be great to meet up.   I haven't even made reservations yet.  Still trying to get all the medical appointments out of the way this week so I can free up the calendar for the rest of the season.    But please, check with me when you are passing through, if I am at RDL, we need to  have a drink, maybe a couple drinks!

This was our run yesterday, we ended up with 240 miles.  I nice back country ride between Rimouski and the Amqui trail was an extra bonus for us yesterday. 

The saddle bags come of today, as we are staying  another night. 5DFFCFC8-5220-467A-B111-799815868A3D.thumb.jpeg.ebf71e3c1acd4d5d774f17f965f32579.jpeg39282BD4-AB71-4AE1-A33E-AA9BCE75B4F7.thumb.jpeg.322875b4a64b2c063e6b25a31768b3b5.jpeg

Rev and play hard, we had a real fun day today with our adventure ride to Lascension de Patepedia.  An awesome blue sky day for us before the snow coming. 

200 miles of 35 groomed and 165 single track or powder riding.  Just what we wanted!  Back at Moose valley for a second night👍

We even got to open one of our old worm holes from a few years ago, a special treat!

 

gorgeous  views today, and a great lunch made by the one and only 603 Backcountry for lunch!

 

The hospitality here att Moose valley is over the top, in fact the provincial Governor comes tomorrow to review all the great work they are doing here!

 

After talking with Andyman, we plan to explore some more in NB this week, heading for Bathurst or Miramichi tomorrow.

 

Thank you Andyman for the tips!

Roadrunner!

Just noticed your likes-to-posts ratio is greater than 1:1!   

Might be all of those depanneur ham & cheese sammy shots?

:good:

Play hard, well we are definitely out of the ZEC territories on this report, as we decided to stay in New Brunswick today and ride some areas that many of us have not ridden in 20 plus years.  So,e never at all.

 

With all the trails in NB open for the first time in 3 years we figured if we are going to do it, let’s ride it this week.  And we have a big storm coming in tomorrow.  Just gets better!😁

 

We left Moose valley, lunch at Serpentine lodge and ended up in Miramachi City.  We had the full scale of riding conditions today.  We didn’t want to leave any condition uncovered😋.

 

A great lunch with Alyre at Serpentine, he knows Andyman well as Andyman has been here a few times!  we also talked with several friendly riders there today and got to ride the interior NB. Also we saw the ice jams on the Miramachi rivers, pic below is where the Renous and Miramachi fork together.  A good 265 miles of NB riding today😁

More fun tomorrow

 

Happy trails

Alyre, what a character he is. We spend 5 days riding northern NB last winter so stopped at the Serpentine lodge a couple times. One friend in our group has been rider  NB several times so he knows Alyre well. Does he still have the big beautiful dog?

Posting picture below to give anyone that hasn't rode New Brunswick what's available vs the Gaspe.

The Gaspe loop was 1,600 km.

New Brunswick trip was 1,900 km, bit of overlap a couple of days in the centre.

Another New Brunswick day, still far away from the Quebec ZEC territories , but we are having a fun run here.

 

Leaving this am in light snow but with Winter storm warnings posted we knew we were going to have fun this afternoon.  We were not disappointed!

We ran the New Brunswick snowmobile Assoc, Zone 3.  A nice run this morning on a great loop out to Caraquet NB for lunch, and yes, fresh seafood!!

  Than the winter storm warnings kicked in, Heavey snow all afternoon made visibility and snow accumulations interesting.  By the time we were back in Bathurst we had a foot of powder in the trail in places and having a blast. 

We expect another 6” tonight so our run tomorrow will be even more fun😁

Happy Trails

RR

Randy, I know you guys are headed this way next week. Not sure if you have downloaded the brand new Map gears interactive map for —New Brunswick .......”Go Snowmobiling NB 2018/2019”—-.  

The developer, Map gear,  did the Ontario one too. This was just released a few days ago and replaces and older fix based app that had been available.  Works really nice!

 

Have a great run

We went to bed dreaming of massive snows, drifts and all the fun stuff.  Ended up with moderate snow but still a fun ride!  Back in Maine tonight, playing in northern Maine tomorrow, home Saturday!

 

Happy Trails! RR
