  1. Storm Last Night

  2. Grass Drags Cancelled

    As a primary source of income for NHSA this is going to affect the sport in a big way. We all remember an abrupt early ending to last season because of the covid19 threat, and it doesn't take too much extrapolating to perceive the a major threat to next season. I hope I'm wrong! It's gonna take some not too small miracles to settle everything down so that next season can happen...Stay Safe! pathfinder
  3. 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. https://www.wmur.com/article/fish-and-game-officer-seriously-injured-after-being-struck-by-ohrv/32860755 New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officer Matt Holmes is released from the hospital.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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

  14. 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
  15. New antique registration rules?

    So much for the $50 plate on anything 25 years or older lasting forever! pathfinder
  16. Had the privilege of meeting Sabrina and her team in '18 at the Vintage World Championships in Eagle River WI. She is amazing on the track, which she proved at Eagle River this year by being the first female ever to qualify for the front row in the Championship Finals where she finished 9th. She is someone who is obviously going to continue her rise to the top in the racing world. pathfinder Boonville Herald · 16 hrs · Sabrina Blanchet with the Vintage Adirondack Cup trophy after her big win Sunday in Boonville.

  18. Vintage Sled Ride Jan 26th, no reg required

    I certainly am! Been riding it around the yard a little and it has a great feel to it. Never been to a vintage ride at Baker River club that I didn't really have a good time. Great group! Great system. pathfinder
  19. Affordable Trail Signs Every Club Can Make

    Great system! Great find! Signs are a perennial problem, with people grabbing them for souvenirs, moose scraping them off trees, and just plain wearing out. The system you found is ideal, great contrasting colors, and refined as seen with the street name on the Stop signs. Great idea. pathfinder
  20. Pittsburg-Back Lake Seasonal Rental

    He doesn't move much! pathfinder
  21. Back Lake Seasonal Rental Nestled on the banks of pristine Back Lake is a secluded, one bedroom apartment that would be ideal for two people who love to snowmobile. This apartment has a cozy living room which has a picture window facing the lake. A second picture window is near the dining room table which shows the 65 foot lawn leading to a ramp, allowing direct access to the lake. The kitchen contains everything you need to cook. Full bath contains a shower and sink in good order. The single bedroom has a double bed and plenty of closet space for all your gear. The entrance to the living area is accessed by a wide, covered deck, which is handy for outside viewing.

Check out the pics and see if this fits your needs for taking advantage of one of the best snowmobile trail systems of the North Country. Length of rental, price and utilities negotiable. 603 538 6359
  22. That kind of surprises me! Would have thought that percentage would be higher! Couldn't help but notice the discussion related to enforcement driving people into Maine. Rational sounds familiar, but still tries to negate private owner rights to off trail riders. pathfinder
