  1. Kayaking in Pittsburg

    My wife and I were in Pittsburg this week. Photos below: Ct River above 2nd Lake, and Lake Francis Boat Launch. 1st Lake & 2nd Lake are very low, but Francis is Holy Shit low.
  2. Pigs will fly and Hell will freeze...
  3. How much air is in your spare?

    Likewise, if you have a pickup with the spare tire held under the bed by a crank down carrier mechanism... If you don't exercise that carrier mechanism once a year and keep it lubed up, there's a good chance it will be froze up when you need to use that spare tire.
  4. What's the story with these trees

    I asked the same question on the PRRSC Facebook page a couple years ago. Donna Haley Jordan of the Colebrook Chronicle posted this reply: Donna Haley Jordan Yes--I know. That property was part of the Northern Comfort Hotel lands, when the hotel was owned by the Brunault family. Mrs. Brunault lives in the white house near those trees and still owns the land. She sold the Northern Comfort (in the early '80s I think) to the Kenney family. Those trees were planted by Mrs. Brunaults husband waaaaaaay back in the 1970s. Donna Haley Jordan By the way, they looked REALLY cool when they were little and first planted. Donna Haley Jordan Jim and Lisa Kenney bought the motel from his parents, John and Alexandrae, around 1990; John and Alexandrae bought it from Isabelle Brunault in 1985. Isabelle's son, John Brunault, sold that piece of land with the funky trees to Jim and Lisa Kenney, who added it to the Northern Comfort parcel.

  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. 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.
  9. Something to think about

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

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

    "dedicated to serving our members" That doesn't sound like anything that NHSA would be interested in …
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 957 mi. We did three trips up to Pittsburg. Best photo was of my wife on Diamond Ridge in January.
  18. 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.
  19. Club poker run or solo blast

    Make a donation to the club and ride in the opposite direction.
  20. Plus possible trail closure..... Well, somebody had to say it
  21. Finally going riding

  22. This sticker

  24. Damnit! (If that's allowed)

    HELL YA it's allowed ( if HELL YA is allowed)... 3 days ago there was good riding and nicely groomed trails statewide. Now it is a total Do-Over . Dammit indeed!
  25. Coming soon

    I would consider this to be reasonable IF it was spelled out that, the NHSA Membership Portal is only intended for those who want to join the NHSA along with their club membership. Those who want to join a club ONLY can just do so through the club website, or in person with a club agent. Personally, I prefer to join a club only, and I would not expect to be able to process my club only membership through the NHSA Portal. I did it directly with the club I chose to join.
