    Sold - chk PM
  2. Attn: Vintage Snowmobile Enthusiasts

    I emailed them about it a couple years ago and got no reply. I could try the museum up in Lancaster...
  3. Anybody interested in this sign? It is 3' X 5' It has an aluminum frame, and both faces are painted plastic. It holds 4 fluorescent tubes. You can see that there is a small hole in this face at lower left corner. The back face has 2 larger breaks/holes. I'm not looking to get any $$ for this thing, just trying to make it go away. It is currently located in Kensington, NH.
  4. 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.
  5. Something to think about

    I believe that any damage done to a rental sled is paid for by the renter, not by insurance.
  6. User help

    Absolutely! But I think jhwentworth is looking for a Help(ful) Tool
  7. I got a similar reaction where I registered, but didn't bother trying to explain.
  8. United Snowmobile Alliance

    "dedicated to serving our members" That doesn't sound like anything that NHSA would be interested in …
  9. You convinced me Mr. Copeland. I registered both sleds Resident No Discount. To support the club where I ride I intend to submit a donation through their website store rather than buying a membership that would be shared with NHSA.
  10. I've been sledding for 18 years now, and so far I have only needed to be towed out of the woods once. Dave Bowles was the one who came by while he was grooming and helped me out. I had heard of him often before that, but it was the only time I got to meet him. Dave was a good man. Between getting my sled to a spot where we could load it on the trailer, and driving me to get my truck, Dave spent at least 2 hours helping me that day. I tried to offer him some compensation for his time and fuel, but he would not accept. He suggested that I purchase an OVSC membership instead, which I did as soon as I got home.
  11. Grass Drags & Watercross 10/5/18 thru 10/7/18

    UL said Deerfield Fair was 150k over 4 days. Traffic was a nightmare there too. I skipped both events.
  12. I did not know Robert Cicchetto, but learned about his passing from a friend this morning. Apparently he was on his way north for a sledding weekend on Friday. This was posted by his daughter on his Facebook page: " Last night while trying to go North for some snowmobiling, he and a friend encountered icy conditions that had them needing to detach the trailer from his truck. Some hold let go, and the trailer ended up running away somehow dragging my Dad underneath. " According to the post, he was taken to Dartmouth and initially they thought he would be Ok. https://www.facebook.com/robert.cicchetto
  13. 957 mi. We did three trips up to Pittsburg. Best photo was of my wife on Diamond Ridge in January.
  14. Sunday ?

    Thinking about maybe doing a day-trip on Sunday. Maybe drive up to Gorham and head north. I do not know that area at all Anybody interested? The weather looks promising. Cloudy, but not too warm.
  15. Club poker run or solo blast

    Make a donation to the club and ride in the opposite direction.
