6 Amigos on the move, the final run!

Recommended Posts

I have been to Sept Iles a few times, it always seems to be awesome sledding. I think next year Andyman and I are going to make a trip of going east of there and see where we end up.

I don't know (or care) if odo or gps is more accurate, especially since the white asphalt was not conducive to track spin, but it was a FREAKING AMAZING ride from Sept Isles to Forestville with ZERO bumps and blue skies the whole way!

You know it's impossible to take "the good shots" because you're too busy clenching the seat with your gluteous maximus, which is just as well to tease that out, so QR folks will get there and experience it for themselves.

Solo's not really (like never) my thing, but today was truly dreamy (like epic). 

And I made allowance for those who take & share pics, cuz I sure appreciate yours!..

I saw a guy coming down the mountain from the west, so I waited until he was on his ramp up, then I got myself to mid-span and waited, but when I put up my high-five it took him a second to realize I was waiting for him to reciprocate, which he eventually did, but I ain't got mad skills like Scranton1 so sorry no video.

And there it is, in case any a-hole needed a sign...

He was moving too quickly to get the rig pic, but a Groomer went by with his ruffles-have-ridges blade (zoom on the far side), in case anyone from that club didn't have scratchers!...

And even the well ridden stuff was still perfection.

It's 400mi to the barn in Trois Rivieres, so either 2 easy 200 days, or huck out 280 tomorrow in the (maybe) afternoon rain and wrap it with a half-day Friday to make brownie points at home?...

Dr Phil1 says not to bother with the news or the weather, cuz they're both wrong, and you can't do anything to change either!

And ya know, it's bad luck to be superstitious!

That fine is way too small, should include 5 years suspension and sled confiscation!!

Am I the only dork here who wants to go tubing whenever passing a ski hill?

Absolutely not. I almost stopped at the same place outside of BC last month when we went thru but there was way too many people.

3 yrs ago (on my 50th birthday no less) I stopped at the one north of Amos in Pikogan Indian reserve. Even had one of the nice Indian fellows (Kenny was his name) take a video when me and my buddy raced down.
