  1. Big groomers, small trails

    There are three of those round tunnels on that stretch of rec trail that never should have been done that way. 1st is in Raymond under Onway lake rd, put in by the town of Raymond way back when the rails were removed. I don't believe the trails bureau was consulted and they did what ever they wanted. This one is the smallest of the three and will actually fill with snow and water causing people to hit there helmets, our local F&G CO actually hit his helmet several years ago. 2nd is under rt 101 exit 3 on/off ramp, 3rd is under rt 101 east/west lanes, both of these were on the plans to be box culverts like the one under rt 101 in epping. For whatever reason, time $$$ or the contractor screwed up round culverts were used. The 101 tunnel should have been replaced several years ago when they were working on 101 right there and they accidentally hit the culvert with an excavator. Instead of replacing it the right way they just bolted a patch onto the top of it. The issue with these being round tunnels with limited height isn't just about snow grooming equipment its also about all the other year round trail users. Bicyclists have to walk thru, horse back riders won't even go thru them. One big issue/expense with replacing these is they all have fiber optic lines running thru them. With the increased use and exposure over the past few years I wouldn't be surprised if the replacements actually get funded or at least the Raymond and Exit 3 ones. Replacing those two would have a huge impact on the trail use, but time will tell if they actually come thru.
  2. 2.1.22- Kingston NH - "on the Trail again"

    Thanks Airtime for the post its great to hear those trails being enjoyed, and although we don't get to use them very often it's a nice little loop of trails. The Southern NH Trailblazers and a group of locals put a lot of time into maintaining those trails for everyone's year round use. That long bridge was put in by the South East Land Trust and we're currently working on a plan to add some guides to the outside edge (it can get a little sketcky in the middle). We just reopened those trails 5-6 years ago and if we start to get decent snow again the long term goal is to get a connector to the Rockingham rec trail (Corridor 15).

  3. Anyone using a vintage plate?

    Sorry no pics I sold the sled years ago. I think i removed the windshield and mounted the bracket where the windshield would hide the screws.
  4. Anyone using a vintage plate?

    I made a bracket and mounted it inside the windshield. It could be seen clearly and didn't damage the sled

    Trails aren't the issue, its the volunteers needed to maintain the system that is the issue and $ isn't the answer to that problem

    Dave I respectfully disagree. Grooming $ is NOT what is killing clubs, lack of volunteers and members are what is killing clubs off. The volunteer mindset seems to be a thing of the past and its getting harder and harder to get volunteers to do the tasks needed to keep the trails and clubs open. If your looking to get enough $ into GIA to pay for all the currently volunteered services than you'd need to triple if not quadruple the registration cost. After talking to a few registration agents the number of people registering as non club members this year will give GIA a decent boost, but at the cost of a few more clubs. At what point does it all collapse onto itself? I think we're starting down a long and bumpy road!

    Just get yourself a 95 sled and modify it to have the best suspension and any other new features you like and put a vintage plate on it. Older sled are all rebuildable and the newer sleds are basically disposibal anyway.

    Sounds like something went wrong so call the office tomorrow and they'll straighten it out for you.
  10. OHRV/Snowmobile Event Permits

    The proposed rules changes were all posted here and on other forums: And yet only a few clubs showed up at the public hearings to discuss and object to some of the proposed changes. If clubs don't like the new rules, then maybe they should have attended the hearings and voiced their concerns. We can't just bury our heads in the sand and hope everything will be the way we like it.
