  1. HB334 filed 4/10/2021

    To the contrary, I believe in due process! And the United States Constitution. And the Constitution allows public taking of property through Eminent Domain for public and business use... WITH Due Process for review and consideration for property. With John's view anyone can deny individuals constitutional rights and due process. Sounds a little like National Socialism in Germany - 1936.
  2. HB334 filed 4/10/2021

    It should pass to parallel the States existing statutes and the Second Amendment. After the Pandemic and all the social strife, this is trivial. Yet, the left may take notice . . . .
  3. Cold Much?

    . Strange weather here on the shoreline . .. Wide swings in temperature, wind, rain... But at $ 6.49 a gallon for fuel oil, I'm not so sure how it will impact.the snowmobile community. Fuel costs have doubled since the start of the year . . . Groomers, sledders, volunteers are all going to feel the shake down. . . Sadly, if we got a Blizzard there would be little enthusiasm and people cringing about the extra costs. Snowcheck 2023 peeved me when I couldn't get a preseason sled in the first days.. . . . Somehow, I do believe there will be units canceled
  4. Did YOU go to Bike Week. . .. ? Got any good images to share?.
  5. Where will snowmobiling be in 50 years?

    A ROW Right a Way. or Easement isn't buying the property outright . . . You are permanently buying passage over said parcel Access could be negotiated with land owners, and said space could be part of the required open space for a subdivision . . . It could be a win / win for all parties involved, with the land owner taking a tax break, while still using the area as part of the subdivision.
  6. Another season behind us

    Trails , or they boondocking (trespassing) for high elevation?
  7. Where will snowmobiling be in 50 years?

    Sadly, to the above comment, that issue has been tested in Massachussets... and the trail system was lost. Trails built in the 1960's and 1970's were lost from development in the late 1970's through the 1980's with constant pressure killing the trail system and clubs.
  8. Where will snowmobiling be in 50 years?

    It doesn't matter. . . After flying cars and snowmobiles, Virtual reality can make a perpetual snowmobile mecca where we can bust virgin powder mile after, every day.
  9. Where will snowmobiling be in 50 years?

    The Technology question is easy . . . It will blow the mind away with 50 years of new technology, materials , and engineering The scary parts are the environmental freaks, nay sayers attacking us with land use issues, and the change in volunteerism. How our current generation can still steer the future, is to buy and secure permanent trails + rightaways
  10. Another season behind us

    Pathfinder Is there any riding from Magallaway towards the border?
  11. If that logic holds, any landowner that hears a Hog going by with straight pipes , they too should be compensated for the devaluation of property + quality of life.
  12. Attorney fee's, expert testimony. etc, are not normally awarded. Unless, they are statute authorized.... This isn't civil rights where there awarded by statute with punitive damages attached Stinks of local political pressure.... NIMBY, yes. and one on the bench.
  13. Normally, there are provisions for an accelerated hearing when It impacts the publics interest. This is a parallel to the Litigation between. Neighbor vs. OVSC + Landowner.... Neighbor wanted our trail stopped ‚úč, from.going through adjacent farm. Court went for club.
  14. Hope the next stop is the Appellate Court . . . Snowmobile Trails exist with owner consent . . . This ruling would make that venue. Open to attack.
  15. Electric snowmobile

    Fuel range was an issue with some sleds, more so than others. 6 or 7 gallon tanks in the 70's and early 80's were disappointing riding long distances..... Now, to find an electric plug on a tree in the wilderness every 50 miles. . . Seems my 20 mpg sleds makes more sense to keep. If you can't easily or conveniently charge an Audi Coast to coast, can you imagine the challenges of charging a sled. Probably wait for a Turbo Diesel, easier on the nerves.
  16. . Thanksgiving is almost here.... Let's see the Christmas Lights ....
  17. Snow totals

    . Kinda bites as Connecticut shoreline got blasted. . .
  18. NH Snowmobile Museum schedule

    It's a volunteer staff..... try calling on the weekend, or emailing. Open for special events, ?????
  19. Yes, Lake Tahoe.... 4 hours +_ flight time.... Roads are closed .....
  20. TAHOE .... 10' snowfall ... city streets to snowmobile trails.
  21. NHSA trail app

    Isn't it about time that snowmobiles get a dedicated GPS system built in as a standard feature on sleds......Kind of like a heads up display in a plane ?...
  22. Trail wooden bridges

    Your 100% accurate. . . Pressure Treated Lumber is extremely heavy out of the bundle . . . Green wood.is going to shrink when. the water dries in the sun and air.
  23. Trail wooden bridges

    Just seems that smaller gaps .bridge / fill faster with snow, holding and making that snow road we travel on. R
  24. People are creatures of habit..... repetitively we do tasks, as if on Autopilot. Sympathetically one may be compelled to offer assistance. driven by emotions of the moment, which wouldn 't be offered during a busy stressful moment. Political? No, psychology in motion I I
  25. SHEEPLE ....they already give . . . They use a debit card for a pack of gum . . . SHEEPLE are already indoctrinated to use a credit card. SHEEPLE the world's full of them . .
