  9. Snow Totals

    Not much of a snow storm in Loudon, with maybe 3"-4" of mostly small ice pellets. Very greasy underfoot and doesn't want to pack. Here's the NWS snow report for NH. Looks like Franklin County in Maine got the jackpot with 10" reported in the town of Weld. NEW HAMPSHIRE ...Belknap County...

  12. Great Riding in the CNHSC trails

    Oh come on...You can bring a lunch and eat in front of the woodstove at the warming hut, Sunset Grill is great, not too far to Rumney for the Common Cafe, Bistro or Plain Janes (you know about that). If you ride on Feb 23 you can eat TRAIL SIDE at Peaked Hill for Central NH's groomer the club, eat some dogs, burgers plus and enjoy the whole snowmobile experience. If all else fails you may see me cooking burgers on the Cor11 rail bed a week ago. I usually have extra. By the way...Red Hat Band next Sat night. Hope we don't get liquid snow on Sat.

    Any recommendations on a good lunch stop in Campton or Thornton...the area of 152/155/11? Catreserve's trailside cooking doesn't count

    Down here on State land along Parade Rd (106) the Belknap Snowmobilers have stakes that are placed apart just a little wider than the groomer. And I would guess the chance of losing a state-owned access would be much lower than on a privately held property. They put them up every fall and take them down every spring. It may be that the local club needs a bit more volunteer help. Someone that knows the current legal system willing to make a small circuit and carry some extra stakes with signage and a mallet.

    DRED, now the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, only comes into play should the ticket be issued by an officer in the Division of Parks and Recreation. They would supply the prosecuting officer, and if the fine was upheld by the judge, would receive the proceeds from the fine, minus a court administration fee. RSA 251-C:33 covers that. The lack of signage is reasonable cause to believe that you are not on a legal trail. We, motorized users, have not been on permitted unless restricted since around 2004. A non-motorized user can state, I didn't see a sign, so I thought I can be here. We have to state, I saw a sign, so I thought I could be here.

    You're right, but those administrative penalties are limited to $250 and the process is performed by DRED, not the courts. Does DRED follow a set of rules in determining if a person had reasonable cause to believe he/she were operating on a snowmobile trail? If there are no trail markers or other signage how would they know?
  22. 2019 legislative session

    It appears to be still in Executive Session; and still would be in play if it was not tabled. Sometimes they reignite support on the floor by removing it from the CC for an individual vote.

    It is the responsibility of every rider to know the laws and regulations. Which is why we had to sign the registration, and why the law makes provisions for when someone else operates our equipment. Remember the old ''I can travel from my land down the road 500 feet because the law says so''; but anyone that read the law realized that the 500 feet was down the road from a designated trailhead. They simply read it the way that wanted. My other favorite was ''I can change my exhaust system to make it louder... as long as I stay on the lake... because the law does not apply out there.'' It isn't just done in the motorized trail user community; but because of the scope of access and how critical each landowner is to what can be large parts of a system... it just cost too much to move the trail again and again, even if a reroute can be found. I even saw a comment on the local club page that someone suggested those wanting to ride ''off trail'' should go up north. It is just moving the problem around and making it worse rather than facing it head on. It was a huge issue for me with the quads. There illegal access would spoil a landowner's willingness not only toward a future legal OHRV trail, but could also jeopardize the existing snowmobile access. I couldn't wrap my head around why anyone would want to destroy all their future options. Criminal trespass is different than a tort trespass. It is a violation of RSA 215-C:49 XIII, which is why you only get a ticket for the first offense and not get arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.

    John, thanks for the input. What I'm hearing from you is that same vagueness I saw in RSA 215-C, that assumption that EVERYBODY understands what a snowmobile trail is, and how to tell when you're on one. NH trespass law seems pretty clear that to be guilty of criminal trespass the alleged perp must have knowingly trespassed.

    Hard to say... I let snowmobiles on my land. But imagine that they did what I had problems with a few year's back... they lost their way and ended up in my front yard. The First call goes to the club... signage needs to be better. The Second call goes to law enforcement... rider, and community, need to pay attention to the signs. The Third call, which we didn't get to, goes to BoT... done, land is closed. The local club is dealing with that issue right now. Rider followed what they thought was legal trail... don't know the outcome other than the trail is currently closed. It might seem strange that it has to be that strict... but I had a woodlot that I let rider use. It was not near home, in another town; and I was stunned to get a call from the town threatening a lawsuit because I was building a non-permitted ''race track''. When I checked into it, they had cut a decent size parking lot, and were building ramps. It took a long time and quite few headaches to get everyone to realize that they were no longer permitted to be on that property. The excuse always seems to be that someone else did it before them, that they didn't know, that they saw it on-line, etc, etc. It got to the point that I sold the woodlot to house lot.
  26. F&G CO's help stuck snowmobilers in Colebrook

    Technically, no. I've experienced that ''it is not an officially marked trail... but *wink*wink*'' a lot. Laconia had the issue with the Weirs' Bridge were it was determined that the club never had permission for a legal trail... and that statute had been on the books since the 80s. After the fact, the club was going to seek approval... but it was determined that they did not have landowner permission for other parcels for the intersections to that bridge... so the point was moot on getting the bridge legal. We currently have so many sled tracks from the State School property back to O'shea Industrial park to get to the gas station, that it would appear to most to be an official trail... possibly even groomed, though tracked up... and it goes past at least three signs that state ''Private Property, No Tresspassing''. There are no orange diamonds because the landowner did not permit snowmobiling there... but they put up the signs thinking it would stop further use of the unauthorized section... It isn't working. Trail admins, and other, go to a class on trail marking... it is very exacting to the point that we under mark most trails and had to work with the BoT because it felt like we were creating view litter on these properties. Those ''Stay on the trail or Stay home'' signs are almost always on an official trail and used to deter thoughts of just a ''small'' violation.
