  1. Kayaking in Pittsburg

    As much as I like to place the blame on somebody else, it would be too hard of a job to lay this on Canada, although I do understand and appreciate your effort. Kind of strange, but the northern counties weren't impacted like southern counties during the earlier part of the drought we had. Then in mid-summer 2021 the big rains came for the south and passed the north. For comparison, in 2020 Concord got 33.75" of precipitation versus a normal 41.51". In 2020 Berlin got 42.93" versus a normal 42.04". In 2021 to date, Concord got 32.75" versus Berlin getting 24.65". If you add the 2020 and 2021 data it's 67.58" for Berlin and 66.01" for Concord. Totals are very close, but the timing was different. Now, in Keene they had 42.85" in 2020 and 42.92" so far in 2021, for a 21-month total of 85.77". https://www.weather.gov/wrh/climate?wfo=gyx BTW: To see NH river flows go to https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nh/nwis/current/?type=flow
  2. $3700 Manufacturer is Alcom LLC. Color white. Low miles, very good condition. Hasn't been used for a couple years. A new trailer of the same type lists for $6,500 and sells for about $6,000. Here's the 2022 model, and it looks a lot like my 2014 trailer; https://www.missiontrailers.com/crossover-snow/ GVWR= 2990 Lbs. Shipping weight= 1034 Lbs. Certificate of Origin available.

  4. Interesting story about a local guy

    MY favorite line was the statement from the club's treasurer that he "never recalls seeing him (Baily) on a snowmobile". While that's a bit extreme, I think there's a lot of dedicated club members who are in snowmobile clubs for something other than just the riding. I'd say that's also true of volunteer fire departments and many other volunteer organizations. They give a lot, and they get a lot.
  5. A 91-year old local guy recently died, and the Concord Monitor wrote this story about him and his connection to a local snowmobile club (the NH Trail Dawgs) https://www.concordmonitor.com/Ted-Bailey-explored-many-trails-in-Chichester-41710982 I suspect that many NH clubs have similar stories.

    HB 334 is waiting for the governor's signature.

  8. Got out once more

    I'd imagine that RNA isolation sample by reagent RVD-E would be of great interest to the frequent visitors to SledNH. Maybe not as big at off-trail riding or registration fees, but still big. Or, maybe not.
  9. Pending trial testimony it's difficult to understand the events that day, but it may be that two riders passed the F&G site at high speed, and the officer took off after the two. The third rider then came through and collided with the F&G officer. There's no way he could have known there was a third rider. We'll have to wait for the trial to hear the whole story.

    Status of HB334 The bill was reported out of Senate committee with an "ought to pass with amendments". It seems the Senate used this bill to change a couple other gun-related regulations as well as changing the House version. https://legiscan.com/NH/text/HB334/2021 Passed the House 2021-05-25 / Engross Committee Report: Ought to Pass, 05/27/2021; Senate Calendar 25A Engrossed Bill A legislative proposal that has been prepared in a final form for its submission to a vote of the lawmaking body after it has undergone discussion and been approved by the appropriate committees.
  11. Maine registration increase coming

    I was curious about the status of Maine H.P. 196/LD280 (the snowmobile registration fee increase) so I took a look. The bill was sent to the IF&W Committee where sixteen people provided testimony on the bill.( http://legislature.maine.gov/bills/display_ps.asp?snum=130&paper=HP0196PID=1456# ) These 16 people represented the MSA, the clubs, state government, and businesses. Their written testimony reflects many of the same things I've heard from NH people involved in our trails. The bill was reported out of the IF&W committee as Ought to Pass, and as of 3/30/2021 this bill was carried over to a subsequent session.

    The concealed carry handgun permits still exist, but are optional. People who travel through other states might want a permit for reasons of reciprocity between states. Trails in the southern part of the state often are routed close to residences, I have a trail that crosses my driveway, so these landowners might be more sensitive to the issue than a corporate landowner that controls large tracts of mostly uninhabited acres of woodlands. I suspect most small landowners aren't aware of this change. Let's hope there are no "issues" involving an armed sled or ATV rider or those landowners might become very aware. Hunters in my area have faced the closure of many hunting areas, I hope we don't follow them. Just hope for the best...

    Possible, but I believe a bigger concern is that the idea that sled riders might be armed with loaded handguns might push on-the-fence landowners in the southern half of the state to close trails. I understand that gun owners have rights, but sleds and OHRVs are mostly operated on private property, and the owner's property rights trump the gun owners rights. We really don't need any more trail closures in southern NH. I wasn't able to find comments on the bill by F&G or NHSA.
  15. HB334 filed 4/10/2021

    The law being amended prohibits any loaded firearm on an OHRV or sled, or in a trailer behind the sled or OHRV. The change would allow a loaded handgun. The purpo0se of the original law was to discourage people from shooting game animals while operating a sled or OHRV. It appears that a loaded rifle or shotgun would still be prohibited.
