    That brings back memories!
  2. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    Totally agree and add Boats to the list that have to take a safety course. Sadly State law only requires that all operators 12 years of age and over must possess either a valid Motor Vehicle Driver’s License or must have successfully completed an approved OHRV or Snowmobile Safety Education Class when operating off their own property. So it is such a small window age wise (4 years) that people are required to take the safety class. I took it with my son this year. There is always something you can learn and I would have no problem if the state made this mandatory for everyone. There would be a lot of people who might learn something and a lot of people who don’t care and just take it so they can ride, look at all the people who have their drivers licenses and still drive like morons. But I think it would be better than nothing.
  3. Anyone using a vintage plate?

    This is going on an 87 but yes I totally agree!
  4. Anyone using a vintage plate?

    How did you attach the bracket? Got a picture? Thanks!
  5. Anyone using a vintage plate?

    No, it’s for my sons sled, not Mine. I’ve got three more years to go before I can register mine as vintage, but by then I’m sure they’ll change the law and I’ll get screwed out of it.

    You are not the only person who has a wife, kids, who spends their time with kids, is active in the community, and other obligations. We all have that, but yet you want us to take care of this because you don't have time? You posed a question, I gave you a very strait forward and valid answer to contact the NSA about this. Your response was to tell me you don't have the time and to call me one of NH's snowmobiling problems and that you don't care, what I've done before. For the record I have never claimed to have done anything or posted that I've done, this or I've done that, so I don't know where that came from, but hey whatever, nice attitude. And then there was this "Many of you have been doing great work for sledding in NH for a long time. That does not mean the ball wasn’t dropped" Nice back handed complement, you guys did great, but you dropped the ball, and we are all gonna go to Maine unless you fix it. You said "Younger generation doesn’t want to deal with out dated laws when they are going to get rung up for $75+ a ticket." The younger generation needs to step up and get involved if they don't like something and help to change laws, but that takes time, work, and effort. If they don't make time to help change it or run off to Maine, then things will never change. If they expect someone else to do it for them, then things will never change.

    Because you were being a dick? LOL come on, now that was funny All kidding aside, You want NH to be an attraction for the next generation and moving forward, but if that is going to happen the next generation is going to have to put in the work to make it happen, not just run off to another state because it's easier. They can't expect someone else to do it for them, they have to help make it happen. I always see "they should", "the state should", never "we should". At the end of the day we all love snowmobiling and want to see it last here in NH, but we have to work together to make it happen. The name calling and mud slinging on both sides accomplishes nothing and needs to stop. We need to work together, united we stand, divided we fall.
  10. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    So the club was organized, worked with the land owners (the state), and got an area opened up for them to ride in...well how about that, just what suggested the off trail community do.
  11. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    Same here. I have zero interest in riding off trail, but anyone can see it has become a huge segment of snowmobiling. Read my posts I never once said I disagreed with him. I simply stated he should take it up directly with the NHSA and for that I'm the problem....and look at that, he did just what I suggested...
  12. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    "you Old Fart RINO’s" "I am everything this country stands for, not just some asshole running his mouth. so if you listen to me when I talk you might learn something" With all do respect, and thank you for your service, talking to people like this isn't very helpful or persuasive. Calling people you are trying to get on your side old Fart's and RINO's isn't gonna change anyone's mind either. This site is not affiliated with the NHSA, although people from the NHSA post here from time to time, you are much better off to take your concerns up directly with them instead name calling and insults on here. Yup, you are right, I'm the problem, it's all my fault.
  13. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    Why ask here? You should be posting it on the NHSA's webstie or Facebook page or calling the office in Tilton and actually talking to and asking someone over there, not a bunch of old fart RINO's on here. If it is what you truly want, Organize, Create Off trail snowmobile clubs, talk with land owners to get them to open their land to off trail use, raise money and purchase land in areas to ride in.

  18. NHSA Sno Traveler promoting ME sledding

    Don't think I can make the Pasta buffet, but I think my parents will be there. They usually go every year and they don't even snowmobile...I miss the sled raffle they used to do at this event...
  19. NHSA Sno Traveler promoting ME sledding

    True! I have been snowmobiling my whole life (48 years) and I have never been to Pittsburg, in fact I have only ridden above the notches once. Some winters are great and some are non existent, but my stuff is paid for so it's no big deal if it sits. I usually don't register my main sled till December, and my other sled only gets registered If it is needed. With the cost of registration nearly doubling I will most likely not register till there is enough snow on the ground for me to ride. I am sure I am not the only one either. Don't get me started on the NHSA spending time and resources raising money for another non profit. Yes, I know it is good pr and a good cause, but it is time, focus and fund raising that isn't going to snowmobiling. Maybe I'm just a dick who doesn't get it, I don't have the answers that is for sure.
  20. NHSA Sno Traveler promoting ME sledding

    Both of my sleds are 1996's.....Not buying anything older that's for sure LOL....They both have upgraded, skis and rear suspension....riding position still doesn't do my back & knees any favors
  21. NHSA Sno Traveler promoting ME sledding

    Snowmobiling is now a rich mans/womans activity...Not only can I not afford a new sled, now I can barely afford to register what I have...and now they want to take away the vintage plates or cut off the year at 1995 as well (one year older than my sleds) great, just great, the only thing I had to look forward to looks like it will be taken away too....
