  1. Looks like a good one! Wish I could go! pathfinder
  2. Tough topic to be objective on, having made my living for years out there touring people, sometimes off trail. The Companies that owned the land up here knew what I was doing and considered the level of off trail that I was involved in and actually would rather have someone who knows the area, "guide" people through it in relative safety. There are some favorites that we all have visited at one time or another, like Magalloway Mtn, Stubb Hill Pond, Rump Mtn. The list goes on, and people enjoyed being able to experience that country. Perhaps, something could be worked out to make it legit to access these more popular ones, and still save the "back country" from the madness that seems to be taking over with people looking to work out there 154" mountain sleds. If it all has to be closed, so be it, but it will be a chapter of the North Country I will miss.........
  3. Hello, everyone!

    Welcome aboard! You'll love it! Great bunch of guys, and gals! pathfinder

    Haven't tried to get on, but I did notice Sunday night that groomers were out! pathfinder
  5. Sad news...

    I talked to him once on the phone several years ago and had the pleasure of being "chewed out" by him on line one for posting a link to moving , falling figure of George W Bush falling through a maze, bouncing around a field of circular balls. He made the point that he didn't want any politics on the site, and agreed with me that it was funny, but to pull it down, which I did. His departure is a big loss to us all who have hung out and several of his web sites over the years. His brilliance will be missed, and we have to wonder what he was about to do next...........RIP pathfinder
  6. &$%*$$# MICE

    I run a trap line from my basement, to my garage, to my cabin, to my storage trailer, and have never checked them when there wasn't something there. They are persistent, dumb and do immeasurable damage to air boxes, wiring, seat foam and anything else that tickles their fancy. Wished I had kept score, but I know the number would be very high. pathfinder

  8. Recent Storm Damage up North!

    Ridge Runners had a great turnout for their work party! Here is a paste from a Newsletter from the Pittsburg Ridge Runners. "Incredible turnout for the work party!! We had over 60 volunteers from near and far arrive at the club house on Saturday morning November 11th to tackle all the downed trees on the snowmobile trails. It was a very cold morning in the Burg, with temperatures only in the teens but everyone got the job done. It was great to see so many club members rally together. Super job everyone!!"
  9. I don't want to cry Wolf about the season that is almost upon us, but the level a trees down up North is alarming, when considering the amount of trails completely blocked in some areas. I consider myself lucky to have been without electricity and phone for almost a week, finally being restored by a crew from Chattanooga, Tenn. late Thursday night. Phone was restored Saturday late in the day. I noticed an e-mail from the Ridge Runners looking for people to share in the experience of a work party this Saturday to get at it, and open things up as much as possible. I am afraid as to what they will find when getting into the middle of it. Been up here fore over 20 years and never seen wind like this, taking down anything and everything with a shallow root system and snapping healthy trees half way up. Curious to know what happened in the rest of the state. pathfinder

    Welcome Aboard! You are now a member of a very elite group, yielding immense power and magic buttons! pathfinder
  12. Sad to hear this news! I spent a lot of time working on those trails for a couple of years and got to really like the system. I would drive down there for work parties from Pittsburg and get there at 7:30 am work my ass off with OT, CKF, ShortFuse900 (Skip) have a bit to eat in the afternoon and drive home. That group thought I was crazy enough that they made me VP for OVSC for a couple of years, which I really enjoyed. I sincerely hope that someone can find a way to work this out, as it would be a real waste to lose such a great part of the state. pathfinder
  13. Drone video back in March 2017

    Nicely done Skull Man! I can see why Paul would want to use it! pathfinder
  14. Aerial tour of Newport Vermont

    Very Nice! Question? What happens if your drone exceeds the limits of the remote control? Does it continue to the West Coast, or runs out of power? How far does the better drones operating range approach? Thanks for posting these vids, it's nice to have a break from the political bonfires that have been brewing of late. pathfinder
