    This up and down weather is stressing us all out to no end.  Finally got to get out for a quick toot with my wife today.  Rain to snow yesterday and then snow over night into today.  Headed out after noon with variable conditions in the lower elevations but better and fresh snow higher up.  
    More bits of snow this week and a warm up at the end of the week...go figure.   Make the best of what we get!  It's coming....just have to wait a little longer.  Need to keep the "glass 1/2 full" mentality!

    Saluda reacted to pathfinder in What's the story with these trees   
    Talked to several loggers over the years about that very stand of trees, and most of them tell me it is a "modified" strip cut.  Meaning, rather than do a total strip cut of an area, you cut a a geometric pattern an an attempt to allow the trees that are left to naturally re-sead the cuts between them. Most of us have noticed typical "strip cuts" that are visible from higher elevations.   Although these "V" shaped  stands of trees have not been allowed to re-sead the open areas between them, over time, most local people have noticed seedlings popping up in these areas and eventually mowed down. So it appears that originally a large stand of trees were harvested with the intent of having them re-sead the spaces between the holes, and somewhere along the line, that intent was abandoned.  Now we have a conversation piece to talk about, but this logic seems of the self planting maneuver seems pretty sound. don't know how long ago that stand was cut, but I started riding up here in '84 and it was that way then as far as I can remember.   Great topic! Hope this helps.

    First trailer for sleds, second ProLine to own. Purchased my first enclosed ProLine in 2017 for work/construction. Spent lots of time/money setting up interior to flow well for every day needs. Trailers are top quality, built well and home grown in NH!
    number two followed me home last weekend. I plan to insulate ceiling for some reason.....load it up and haul machines north for the winter thanksgiving weekend.
    anyone in the market for a trailer Id certainly give these guys a look. A bit more expensive but the extra dough spent is well worth a long term investment. These trailers are top notch

    I agree that average speeds are faster in Maine. I have ridden in parts of the state, many of the trails are wider and straighter, for much longer distances, more like highways than state two lane roads. Distances between towns tend to be longer, riding faster is easier. There are trails in NH where you have plenty of room, and good sight-lines, but not near as many as in Maine. 
     
    As for off trail, I would agree that opening up some defined areas where it's acceptable makes sense. It even makes sense for the NHSA to help with the process. But it also seems to me that the responsibility should be on the people who want to ride off trail to take the first step, start to work with landowners, then with the organization. 
    I sometimes see posts on other sites where new off trail riders ask where they can ride. They typically get no answer, or someone is up front and tells them that no one is going to give up their secret spot. I would have to think that a big part of the reason they want to keep the secret is that they know they aren't supposed to be there. 
    In the end, we have to understand that the landowners are in charge, and work with them, so we don't wind up with no place to ride.

    So here is a thought on off trail riding, and only a thought. When you register your sled, it states on the reg that you acknowledge that it is illegal and you know you will lose your snowmobiling rights in the state of NH for the year. Your reg sticker is taken and it goes on your drivers license also, plus a fine. As for speeding, well you are not going to stop that unless you treat it as a automobile speeding ticket.

    We meet enough idiots on the trails with the limit at 45. Raise it (depending on how much and where) and the wife and I are out of sledding.

    Seemed off to good start with cold November and snow around here but as per recent decades norm, it fizzled out to endless snowless rainy misery here in southern NH..  So during the initial excitement I bought this for pulling my drag through  the back 40.  Spent considerable time on it to refurbish. All systems visited and addressed. I like these for their simplicity and reliability.

    Evergreen Valley Snowmobile Club in Milton had a trail closure because of a bad town bridge in Union.  We had lots to do, and it took several weeks, but with the hard work of many, including folks from other clubs, we have reopened corridor 26 from Milton to Moose Mountain.
