  1. CO Matt Holmes hit by ATV

    A Fish and Game conservation officer was released from the hospital Sunday after suffering serious injuries when he was struck by an off-highway recreational vehicle in Dummer on Saturday, officials said. New Hampshire Fish & Game Advertisement In a Facebook post, New Hampshire Fish and Game thanked everyone for their thoughts, prayers and well wishes for Conservation Officer Matthew Holmes, and said that he would be recuperating from home. "He still has a recovery period ahead but will be ok," the post said. The crash happened about 5 p.m. on Dummer Pond Road. Officer Matthew Holmes was attempting to stop two OHRVs that were speeding when a third OHRV hit him from behind, Fish and Game said. The OHRV was going over 60 mph. "That's a high-speed impact on a stopped vehicle," said Fish and Game Col. Kevin Jordan. "That's the equivalent of being hit with a small compact car on an open ATV, which immediately amounts to an ejection." Holmes was sent flying off his ATV and knocked unconscious. Jordan said some off-duty Gilmanton firefighters happened to be riding on the trail and helped another conservation officer treat Holmes before the ambulance arrived. New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officer Matt Holmes is released from the hospital.
  2. Quarrentine Check in

    What a nice garden! Amazing what a couple of hundred miles a difference makes. I don't expect to see that much green for another 2-3 weeks! pathfinder
  3. Quarrentine Check in

    Isolation is not much fun after a few weeks, and home is getting a little redundant. I'm lucky I'm retired (I think) so guess you could say I work from home. My current focus is trying to gather enough firewood for next winter before the black flies arrive to make it a living hell to do. I am doing it the least efficient way, by going out and finding standing deadwood, dropping it, and cutting it to 16 inch lengths and then hauling it in to face the splitter behind a wheeler in a cart. This had been working out pretty well until the second coming of winter arrived, which I'm sure will end soon and the black flies will arrive in full force. Also recently acquired a massive amount of older sled parts from the inventory of Youngs Third Generation Repair, which is soon to go on the market, so that has taken a lot of time and effort trying to figure out what to do with lots of stuff, having lots of stuff already. Being in Pittsburg in the off season is normally a little boring, but no Buck Rub, no Happy Corner, No Tall Timber, not even Hicks lumber is open. Kind of like a bad sci-fi movie. Hi lite of the week is armoring up to go to the IGA in Colebrook and maybe Walgreens. So far everything is consistently variable which is a good description of Pittsburg anyway. Be Safe!! pathfinder
  4. Quarrentine Check in

    No Worries! We are all under a lot of stress that shows up in different ways. I'm sure more of us would like to vent about politics (me included) but that would lead to a very deep down slope for the site. Appreciate the apology! Be safe!
  5. Quarrentine Check in

    Please try to veer away from political arguments, which are not allowed on this site. This thread is about "Quarantine Check In" and should stay in that direction. pathfinder
  6. Wish I had an explanation. Lifted the pic off of Facebook, thought it was very unique. Although I have seen some rare behavior in the North Country between Deer and Foxes, Bears. pathfinder

  12. Repair shop groveton area

    When I had a rental fleet, I had three brand new Z370's that generated the same problem. Being in Pittsburg, one of them ended up over the border in to Quebec, where I had to retrieve it, which was a pain in the ass. Eventually figured out that the kill switches were the culprit, and routinely disconnected them to get them back in a pinch. Hard to figure Arctic would not pick up on the flaw in a build that was as basic as possible at the time. Needless to say I never replaced them with similar models. did replace them with 6 '04 Polaris Classics of which 5 of them needed to be rebuilt, just out of warranty (90 days for rental sleds) because that year build were built with too tight a tolerance of piston to cylinder and routinely blew up. pathfinder
