  9. Craziest thing you've ever done for a snowmobile?

    Yup, nice country up there. You just have to live to tell the story.
  10. Craziest thing you've ever done for a snowmobile?

    May is kind of a problem month for acquiring sleds, five so far. Maybe another today being my birthday. Wouldn't do the MI run again anytime soon, went the last 4-500 miles on auto pilot, but saw some great country. Upper Michigan is very scenic and the major roads have 75 MPH speed limits. pathfinder

    Cool, although I can't do those kamakasi runs like that. I would fall asleep for sure. So - that's two new red sled on the same day, in May no less.
  12. Last Wednesday I hit the road around 5 am heading into Montreal, Ottawa, all the way to Soo St Marie into Michigan. A mere 785 miles arriving at around 8:30, checked into a Super 8, got a little sleep. On the road again next morning around 7 heading for Hiawatha Township to pick up a 73 Rupp Nitro that was kind of special, in that it had been stretched from a 116 inch track to receive a 91 Polaris RXL SKS 136 inch track and rear skid. This conversion was done by a friend of mine whose name is Joe Francis, a restoration guru that had built this sled about ten years ago along with another similar sled for himself and his wife Glenda. At the time of the build I was aware of it through another site called " The Rupp Message Board " which showed the build and I immediately wanted to build one. Time came and went, never did the build, but heard one of these came on the market for lack of use. Made a phone call, made a deal, picked it up, and for some strange reason decided to come home through the US heading south in MI in order to cut across lower Ontario heading for Niagra Falls, Buffalo, and drove the entire length of the New York throughway in the middle of the night, cutting up through Vermont and getting home Friday morning around 10:30, 2200miles, 53 hours, no sleep, and a minor case of post traumatic stress syndrome, with a new new baby that will be my vintage rider. Worth it? Hell yeah! pathfinder

    'after a lengthy illness' It's difficult when someone goes suddenly, from the perspective of closure, but I hate the idea of suffering for a long time. I hope that wasn't the case for him. 57 years married is an accomplishment, I hope I get there. RIP

    So sad to lose another great guy,,, my condolances

  17. Godspeed Jim Herbert

    For anyone who has ridden the Groveton Trailblazers trail system in and around Nash Stream over the past 15 years, the great experience that you had is in large part due to the efforts of Jim Herbert. He not only went out grooming almost every day, but in the off-season, he maintained the groomers and drags, applied for grants and organized trail maintenance. If you got to meet Jim, you know what a wonderful person he was. If not, take my word for it, Jim was a talented person and very dedicated to making sure things got done right. Take a few minutes to say goodbye on the funeral home page listed in the obituary below. His family will appreciate knowing how many lives Jim positively affected. JAMES “JIM” M. HERBERT, 79, of Cloutier Dr. in Stark died on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH after a lengthy illness. Jim was born on June 20, 1939, in Burlington, VT the son of James M. Herbert, Sr. and Clara (Dyke) Herbert. He was a graduate of Spaulding High School in Barre, VT. Before retiring Jim worked for Perini of Framingham, MA working in both New Hampshire and Vermont. Jim and Marilyn moved to Stark seventeen years ago from Franklin, NH, and Jim has been the Trail-master and groomer for the Groveton TrailBlazers for the past fifteen years. Jim was a lifelong member of the Mount Sinai Masonic Temple in Barre, VT. He was a Veteran of the US Army served during the Vietnam War. Jim is survived by his wife of 57 years Marilyn Herbert of Stark; three children Marcia Garner of Richmond, VT; James D. Herbert of Claymont, Deleware; and Dianne M. Herbert of Stark; four grandchildren; four great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren and one brother Robert Herbert. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, from 5-8 pm at the Armstrong-Charron Funeral Home in Groveton. Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, May 29, 2019, at 11:00 am at the funeral home with Pastor Patricia Williams of the Groveton United Methodist Church officiating. Inurnment with Military Honors will be held at the convenience of the family in the Emerson Road Cemetery in Stark. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Jim's name to the Groveton Food Pantry; c/o St. Marguerite d'Youville Parish; PO Box 247; Groveton, NH 03582.

  24. Fire at Murray Farm

    Hey Thanks so MUCH everyone,,,,, snowmobiling friends and friends from far and wide have been reaching out,,,, several came to lend a hand for a day or more,,, many well wishes from ALL OVER ,, my entire service building and offices , heating plant including my chip plant, water storage and booster pump,, fertilizer for this spring,,, this seasons seed packs for our customers, just serviced our zero turn mower,,, all GONE ,,,, the gable on our greenhouse that was destroyed was 174' wide. It took 100% of all the heating equipment hung on that gable,, we lost our stand by generator, all our tools, and I just put a $35,000 standing seam roof on the building last summer,,, we had just taken a delivery of a NEW gas boiler that wasn't installed yet, the wreckage list is surreal.... I have no choice other than to be POSITIVE,,, the good in neighbors, friends, family, no one was hurt, the cat survived, MOST of my plants that were not burned will make it,,,,,, INSURANCE? grossly underinsured, I hope my inspiration will inspire others,,,,, its all I really have always wanted in life,
  25. AUX SHUT-OFF switch problem

    You should be able to find a downloadable service manual online. Ebay maybe ?? The manual will have electrical schematics and should inentify wires by color.
  26. I got a 2012 POLARIS TURBO IQ LX, got a rollover and broke the AUX SHUT-OFF switch. Looking for a drawing or anyone know how to connect the 5 wires going into the switch to start it?
  27. Fire at Murray Farm

    I have been in that building, it is really a shame to see this. David (he prefers David) - my name is David as well, but I'm fine with either - I hope you can save most of it, and you are better them most at making lemons from lemonade, I hope everything turns out well.
