Pics from the Matapedia Valley !!!

Jean Guy,  I bet that is the same machine we watched breaking ice in Pointe a la Croix a few years back.  

 

Bob  It is a hovercraft if you cant tell by the picture.  The downward air pressure cracks the ice so it breaks up easier.  Pretty cool watching it slide around.

those who still riding late...i guess they have camps in the woods ....

i drove in front of the house of a friend this morning ....gone at the lake  with his sled...saw only 1 track this morning on the local trail......none on tq  5

Good Morning!! 

 

Looking at Jean-Guys photos and dreaming of next winter already!

 

This is the last of his 59th year! On Sunday April 11th he will begin his 60th! So next winter (March) I will (If covid allows) organize a Birthday Party to celebrate! 

 

For now...it will keep me happy to plan for next season!

 

Happy Birthday Week Jean-guy! I will keep posting some of my favourite pics of you!
