  1. Hi Guys, Know some of you either do construction type of stuff or might have an idea what this would cost. I have a question for you. My roof needs to be re shingled. It is just a plain rasied ranch. The roof is about 1200 square feet total (26' wide x 42' long ) . I got a quote from a guy that did a friends house. It was for Certain Teed shingles with the 6 feet of the roof having the water shield stuff underneath. Also includes the ridge thing across the top and stripping of the one layer of shingles and removal to dump. Could you tell me what a decent cost to have some one do all that. Just trying to find out if he gave me a good price and not just ripping me off. Here is a picture of the house ( on left .... barn is on right ) Thanks ... Rob ....

  3. RIP

    When I see pictures of sleds burning I always wonder if it was because of mice nests. Saw a post on FB from a person that bought a brand new sled from 3A Motors in Chelmsford that ended up having a mice nest in it with chewed wires. I had a good size nest in mine this Winter when I checked it before riding. This off season it is going into one of those plastic bubbles they store cars in. I have 3 Harleys stored that way. Cheap way to keep them out. Rob .....

    Holy Crap .... Glad you and your Wife are OK ... I bet the other person was texting .... Rob .....
  5. For you NHSledding Refugees

    well my sledding season was taking the sled from my shed to my garage to get ready. Then is was over that fast ... Broke my left lower leg ( fibula ) in 2 places and my ankle in 2 places plus torn ligaments. Surgery was on March 1st and now on crutches for 3 months and another 3 months with limited pressure on it. Rob .....
  6. For you NHSledding Refugees

    I am stll using Paint Shop Pro editting pictures ... that group picture was from the BIG Rob Ride out of Gus’s house. I think we left around 9am and got back around 7:30pm or so. Gus was in the dog house because his son was suppose to be back long before that ... LOL ... I beleieve we did 184 miles that day. I will try to remember to post a bunch of pictures from that ride. I think we should get a ride together this Season Rob ...
  7. OK ... so last March 2017 I bought a Mavic drone and took it up with me to Pittsburg, NH to film some video. Just for the fun of it. Was hoping to carry it in the backpack case but unfortunatley I forgot the charger cable for the controller but did get some AWESOME video ( about an hours worth ). Paul saw the raw footage and asked if I could do a video for his website. Mind you this is not what I had in mind at all when I brought it. My plan was to carry it while sledding and catch neat footage of people riding along the trail. I finally had the time to truly fully edit the video. IMHO ... it came out pretty kewl and can not wait to go back up again and get some really, really mind blowing video. Let me know what you all think. BTW ... Ramblewood (Paul) is going to use it for advertising on his Ramblewood website ;-) I can't wait until next Winter now .... LOL ...
  8. Drone video back in March 2017

    Well Paul updated his website and included my video. I feel honored. https://ramblewoodcabins.com/activities/videos/
  9. Drone video back in March 2017

    No ... that is why i posted .. I want constructive criticism because that is the only way i will learn. Ya that is what I figured ...but it is so hard trying to keep it to 2 to 3 min ... LOL ... Also I think they say it is best to try to do 10 to 20 second clips and fade to next one. I will have to write down the crop photo idea .. did not know that. Thanks .... Rob ....
  10. Drone video back in March 2017

    thanks ..... my first time flying not being in beginner mode .... plus my first flights longer than 100 feet from me. It was hairy at first having it so far away. I just wish I had the charger cord because I would have loved to take it to Back Lake and chase the sleds racing on the lake. Or even sit along the trail chasing any sled that went by. Cant wait for next Winter ... Rob ...
  11. Sugar Hill, NH

    Beautiful up there Rob ...

  13. Starting a go fundme for this...

    That is insane !
  14. Damm ... always late to the party .... Wife and I are prime Amazon members. Shop all the time on it ... will use your link Rob ....
  15. Haaa ... haaaa .... no but alot of pine trees that would love to eat a drone. Now no laughing at my video .... it is my first time. Decided to try it from my driveway. Well ... I am hooked ! It was a frigging BLAST !
  16. Well I got a bonus at work a few weeks ago and my Wife said to use the money to go rent a place up North for sledding. So I tell her I would rather spend it on a drone. Was thinking of a RC truck type toy to play in the yard with but still had in my mind a drone. This was because of seeing all the videos posted here on SledNH plus Nigel's Facebook page My Drone Friends. My Wife said she said to do what ever I wanted with it ... so I bought a drone and as usual I jump in with both feet. I thought it would just be unpack it and go out and play .... well IMHO to this old fart .... it is more complicated than I thought. I probably should have gotten a more cheaper one that might have been that way. But nooooooo .... Skully goes and gets a DJI Mavic Pro ... LOL .... After unboxing it and reading online and watch more YouTube videos about first time use I am still over whelmed :-( I did manage to get all the firmware updated and even bought a mount to use my full size Ipad with it. Registered with the FAA and set the contoller to beginner mode which limits it to a 100 foot height and radius from the controller. Going to try my first time flight this afternoon if it aint to windy. Rob ...
  17. cant read it unless you subscribe to that dirt bag newspaper. Rob
  18. trail conditions?

    Sounds like the almost same ride Nigel lead us on a month ago ! Today I did the Pink Ride for Breast Cancer with Matty. Got to meet Gunmaker and his crew. Nice ride and very nice trails for the area. Nothing like the bigger trails up there but nice and close to my home. They arw only 15 min away ;-) Rob ....
  19. Thought of you a few weeks ago when I rode Corr.2 Rob ...
  20. Big Day Today - Going to the Dark Side

    Happy you finally got to upgrade. Rob
  21. That trail back was fine ... other than that water bar. I caught up to those riders that pasted us while I said good bye to you all. Followed them until they took a trail towards Lyme. Yes ... I posted pictures and so did Keith. Rob ....
  22. Yes been too long since I have ridden one of my favorite riding areas. Thanks Bruce for leading the ride so I didnt have to break out my maps or stop at every intersection to figure where to go next. BTW .... when I got home and told my Wife how you asked me to stay over at the camp she asked why didn't I ? Now that is a great Wife ! I had a blast on only the 2nd time out on the new sled. It has lived up to my expectations more than I thought it would and I am very impressed with it.
  23. If you have not seen over on Facebook .... Matt Halaby aka " Matt From Mass " passed away from Cancer at 48 years old this past Friday. I got to ride with him a few times and he was a great guy. http://obituaries.eagletribune.com/story/matthew-j-halaby-1968-2016-850874942
  24. Favorite sled of all time?

    Favorite sled ..... hmmmm ... that is a tough one ..... I guess it would have to be my 2005 MZX adrenaline ... fast enough for me and took all the punishment I could give it. Which even included hitting a railroad splice plate and probably the worse crash I have ever taken on a sled or motorcycle. It also help me lead many great Rob Rides and meet so, so many great people to sled with. Even thou it only had 4,000 miles on it ... it saw trails from Hollis to Keene, from Bow up through Boscawen, Newfound Lake, Rumney, Stitson Mtn, Mt. Kearsage, Mt. Moseiluc, Baker River, Lyme and Lebannon, then also a few trips up to Pitts and all way down to Diamond Pond. Lastly ... it actually helped with my recovery from Cancer treatment because I so looked forward to ride it again afterward. This year I hope to be able to re-live some of the riding I use to do on my STILL brand new 2016 900 ACE Blizzard ;-) Rob ....
  25. SLEDNH family ride

    Id be up for it ... anything is better than the 3 miles I got last year. Rob ....
