    Our membership is up....we see the money but never see the faces. A problem all clubs have. We need more snow so this forum will get back into sledding pictures, stories, how to get to here or there, etc. That is what I enjoy.... Sick of the negative, negative, negative....get enough of that in the NEWS. My glass is always 1/2 fullnot

    Trail Side Cooking Time....

    It was a good day to get out and start off the trail side cooking season. The warmer temps made it easier to be able to stop and cook without freezing to death. Nothing like beans and hotdogs on the trail with friends topped off with some good riding!

    We had a GREAT turnout with almost 60 vintage machines on display, and many of them were riding around enjoying the snow and great weather. Saw lots of old friends, made some new ones, ate lots of good food, with vintage sleds riding around everywhere. About as perfect a day as it gets... Thank you to everyone that came out to enjoy the day with us!

    Trail Side Cooking Time....

    Went out for a rip today....took a sandwich and brewed up some coffee along the way. Guess everyone gave up or was heading somewhere to watch the Pat's...nobody out riding. Saw 6 sleds and enjoyed the day. Took advantage of the snow while it is here before a tease of snow and then R***and miss the first 1/2 of the game. Pat's may blow it anyway!

Then 134s and 19 all the way back to the truck, we got side tracked a few times due to my lesss then stellar navigation. Trails good to great most of the time.milan and millsfield were best.

    Good riding yesterday and i stopped on the trail for my usual hot cup of coffee and a lunch of gourmet chicken, apple sausage, green beans and yum-yum. One pot cooking to keep it simple and fast. Enjoyed the solitude of the trails and our great wilderness spaces...because literally there was hardly any traffic. As I am riding I am thinking of a little bit of snow on the way for Saturday night. Sunday morning...Yipee more snow than they had thought(you mean they got it wrong again)...a Fluffy White 6" of majestic frozen bliss!!!! Seems like the site is quiet so I just had to chime in and be POSITIVE. With the warm up ahead hopefully this snow will give us some protection... if people stay of the trails at least in the warmth of the middle of the day this week. We need to protect our future riding investment by being smart in the warm weather...it's still only FEBRUARY.

    Major OVSC Trail Closure Detailed

    I hope that the local club decides not to help maintain or groom the trails for the dog sled races in the future.

    Major OVSC Trail Closure Detailed

    The wife and I took Friday off after looking at the weekend weather report. We started at Baker river valley's clubhouse and ride all around in both directions. The trails were groomed but the powder loosened up quickly. I had the throttle pinned most of the day because I inadvertently took the "learning" key to the 900 ace which greatly reduces torque and speed to 40mph, 30mph going up hills and if the wind is on my side and down hill, I got it up to 44mph. We did meet a moose right on the trail and go a little nervous when it walked towards us within 20 feet then walked off. Good time though. Saturday, we took the sled to Paugus bay and did some ice fishing. I caught a 3.32# pickerel, not bad.

    OVSC trail work

    Yesterday the OVSC fielded two work parties. Trail master Mark along with Dex and Paul cleared several major blow downs in our extreme southern section. Meanwhile deep in the woods of Wonalancet at the foot of Mt. Chocorua one current and the two past presidents (George, Dave & Skip) along with Barry and Jim spent 7 hours along Paugus Brook near the Swift River clearing tons of debris left from the last flooding incident. It was extremely hazardous working conditions as the trails at both sites were sheets of ice...but spending a day in the woods with good friends is priceless. And none of us would have wanted to be anywhere else!

    105 or so miles round trip (no railbed)- fresh tracks for the first 50+ miles- sledders dream of floating over freshly groomed trails with anywhere from 3 crusty inches to 8 in elevation of pure bliss....anybody want to do it again on Thursday? Ride Right, Ride Safe, Ride On !!!

    Trail side - camping

    We sleep out in our tent every winter and usually in March when we have longer daylight, usually more snow, and warmer....well, we decided to go last Saturday night due to our abnormally long January thaw. This location is at ~2000 feet in the White MTNs at the North end of Rumney. We ride up and camp out for the night. Bruce, I love your feedback on cooking and we like to try different backcountry dried options- dinner- chix/alfredo linguini, desert- Creme brulee and apple cobleer (my son loved that)- Breakfast- eggs/bacon or hot granola blueberry milk mix (yummy). Little rain shower activity, plenty of owl hoots, plenty of sleds out, groomer when by and tooted. Well, I am finally getting out to ride more often so I will try to update with trail reports starting the end of next week. Until then.... Ride Right, Ride Safe, and Ride On !

    Tough topic to be objective on, having made my living for years out there touring people, sometimes off trail. The Companies that owned the land up here knew what I was doing and considered the level of off trail that I was involved in and actually would rather have someone who knows the area, "guide" people through it in relative safety. There are some favorites that we all have visited at one time or another, like Magalloway Mtn, Stubb Hill Pond, Rump Mtn. The list goes on, and people enjoyed being able to experience that country. Perhaps, something could be worked out to make it legit to access these more popular ones, and still save the "back country" from the madness that seems to be taking over with people looking to work out there 154" mountain sleds. If it all has to be closed, so be it, but it will be a chapter of the North Country I will miss.........

    It's something how we not only have people riding off trail where they don't belong. The manufacturers have been perfecting sleds that cater to these morons. Twelve feet of paddle track and 150+ hp. Not to mention F&G having to spend resources rescuing these folks when they created there own maze.There is really nothing good that comes of this nonsense.

    Money grab New Hampshire style

    Jeff, I have to agree with Rob on this. I salute you for your tenacity and grit. But you’ve won. Yes, there remains some resistance, some self denial, in Tilton. But the implosion that will occur by the AG’s negotiation has begun. Both in the north and southern sections of the State voluntary membership in the NHSA will begin to plummet as the organization has failed to market or serve those areas appropriately. Other counties will follow suit unless the organization reinvents itself. Rob is the type of individual that needs to be encouraged now to work within the NHSA, and hopefully he gets the support he needs. As several have suggested, maybe it’s time to surrender the swords for plows. Let’s let folks now decide where to spend or not spend their money, and be there to offer support to folks like Rob that will be the seeds of change necessary to reorganize the NHSA into a smaller but more focused group that gets back to its roots....

    Did a 50 mile shake down. Trails around here are "ok". Roads and fields are smooth and nice but most stuff in the woods is so so. Open water and boiler plate ice in places, then it's great for a bit. Repeat. Clubs are grooming. railbed was ,*ahem* fast.......

    Glad you got out for a rip. It was a nice day and looks like you had a good ride in good conditions. Nice to see some posts about us having fun in the snow.

    ''Twas s good day. 103 out of Littleton to bath, up the rail to 105 in Lisbon, then rail 5 back home. Lisbon was not too good. Littleton- Monroe- rail bed were great.

    Snowmobile & Super Bowl

    I've been trying to think of a way to tie the Super Bowl hoopla to snowmobiling, so here goes. Yesterday Levi LaValee entertained a Super Bowl crowd in downtown Minneapolis with a 100-ft flip over the Nicollet Mall (a shopping and tourist area on Nicollet Ave) using a Polaris 600-R that was claimed to be "stock", or at least as stock as a factory race sled gets. This guy is incredible good at what he does, as anybody who's watched his 2016 Red Bull run could could tell you. Snowmobiles do have a history at the Super Bowl, going back to the 1992 half-time show in Minneapolis that featured ice skaters and snowmobiles. What is the make and model of the sled in this photo?

    Snowmobile & Super Bowl

    Looks like a Skidoo Formula Plus. Late 80s vintage. That's when skidoo really started making a fast sled that could handle.

    That club was around in the 80s. They we're based in Exeter. They actually had the first grass drags at the Peterson Farm location. They raised at ton of $ for Easter Seals.

    I suggested some off trail riding areas over 10 years ago when MTN sleds starting becoming popular in the NorthEast since I lived in Oregon prior to that. Even out in OR or WA, you cannot just ride anywhere you have to stay in the designated areas, however, biggest difference is there National forests are sooooooo much larger than ours they have more land to work with. They keep sledders near sledders and Xcountry skiers/snowshoers in their areas so no conflicts between the "users"...I use to laugh cause one of the complaints from a non-sled user was I could hear the snow machines across the valley....what did they do the next? They moved the sledders over the ridge to the next area and then no complaints. Ride Right, Ride Safe, Ride On !

    I'm thinking that it might be time to take the lights down. Might cause a favorable change in the weather, and I'm willing to try anything that might work...

    After reading some of the comments I am really hoping the fine gets increased to the proposed $248. $74 is a joke and some of those twits posting even laughed at it, lets see them laugh next year!
