Hi,
No snow in District 9 this year, haven't been out yet! Did 3500 km last winter.
Have my own transport, will drive, have some trailer space if needed,unload wherever.

Anyone planning several day rides/tours/trips and needs/wants an extra buddy...much appreciated!

Anywhere up north, as long as their is great snow and fun sledding! I'm easygoing, love a good time. Running a 2011 Yamaha RSVectorGT.

Paul

Hi Paul,

I just got back from 2000km solo ride in Quebec. Have 2012 GSX 800 and 40 years experience... Too many buds have got too old for sledding and my son started trade school this year so he parked his sled after this weekend. I'm in Paris (near Brantford) and try to get out most weekends. heading to Liskeard this coming weekend (leaving Cambridge Friday noon-ish) and home Sunday, or maybe Monday, I'm flex...supposed to snow a bit everyday this week, but North Bay too crowded. I am a young 50 and love riding. Mostly touring but like dayrides especially if deep snow, been hooked on powder since a trip to Revelstoke 2 years ago...I NEVER DRINK AND RIDE and don't like riding with guys who drink while riding. We're not riding 12hp Elans anymore. Sorry don't mean to preach but I find it's too prevalent still...anyway if you want to hook up to ride sometime give me a buzz 800-563-7200 work and on call 24/7 (except when it's sled season) Thanks, Dan

Hi Dan,

Sounds like a great trip, don't think I could do that one on my own...wow. I haven't been able to sled at all in District 9 no snow until 2 days ago, and trails still closed. Might be able to work out a weekend before season's end. There are 2-3 of us doing North Bay to Abitibi Canyon and return, starting Monday morning Feb 20 to Feb 25, weather sounds good, I hope. Who knows might meet on the trail or lodgings. Love sledding when I can.

Have a good trip, Abitibi Canyon is a nice ride, Cochrane usually good. No rooms in Liskeard this w/e as there's hockey tourny so opted for NBY. My boy's last w/e before trade school so I guess I get t treat for a last ride. We're @ Comfort Inn on Lakeshore but coming home Monday. They have pretty good deal for sledders $85 a nite. My brother was at North Adventure earlier this year, new management and says it's not as good as used to be...and that wasn't much ! I think I'm heading back to PQ next weekend...a good tour is ride from Liskeard to Cochrane, then Cochrane to LaSarre, then back to Liskeard. If you never rode PQ you should. We're going to double ride next weekend with GF. I expect that might be it, although I been riding before at East April 4 in Cochrane one year and rode Gaspe 3rd week in March before. Anyway have a good one, maybe hook up one day, my truck is plate # IM0VFR8 on a white Ram, if you see us stop by.

Hey Paul, how was Cochrane etc ? I was in PQ (Abitibi region) last weekend, real good riding. I'm pretty sure I got another long weekend in me, not sure where yet but like to get back above North Bay once more. Let me know if your group making another trip. Thanks
