  1. Official 2019 riding pic thread

    I think that is where we turned around as well.

    The trail the continues past the rocket is nice as well. Old rail bed for a while, then some fields, and more typical trails. Have only ventures about 20 miles or so past the rocket, need to go farther one of these days.

    There is a trail on the right, just south of the rocket (forget the number) that goes into Lincoln. Great trail, lots of elevation changes. Have gone from Baker River up to Lincoln for coffee at the Dunkin, then back to Baker River. Sorry Catreserve - too lazy to carry our own coffee, even though that is probably a smarter choice.

    You do need to use some judgement with a GPS, But - They also could have had a map from a past season, and followed that into the same situation. Sounds like an unfortunate mistake, that had a good ending.
  5. Parking at Whale Tale Waterpark

    Rocket is on 5 in Warren, can't miss it when you get close. Cluibhouse is on Corridor 8. The the street address is 197 N Dorchester Rd, Wentworth,.
  6. Parking at Whale Tale Waterpark

    I agree. If I park there and go in to change, we usually pick up a map, and each of us puts a 5 in the jar, buy a raffle ticket if they have some.

    You should be fine in Baker River with your GPS I think. As usual, you will still need to pay attention to the signs. If you can get into the clubhouse there, you will typically find free paper maps on a table.
  8. Old map

    I carry both, paper is great for planning, and the batteries never go dead.
  9. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    I agree that average speeds are faster in Maine. I have ridden in parts of the state, many of the trails are wider and straighter, for much longer distances, more like highways than state two lane roads. Distances between towns tend to be longer, riding faster is easier. There are trails in NH where you have plenty of room, and good sight-lines, but not near as many as in Maine. As for off trail, I would agree that opening up some defined areas where it's acceptable makes sense. It even makes sense for the NHSA to help with the process. But it also seems to me that the responsibility should be on the people who want to ride off trail to take the first step, start to work with landowners, then with the organization. I sometimes see posts on other sites where new off trail riders ask where they can ride. They typically get no answer, or someone is up front and tells them that no one is going to give up their secret spot. I would have to think that a big part of the reason they want to keep the secret is that they know they aren't supposed to be there. In the end, we have to understand that the landowners are in charge, and work with them, so we don't wind up with no place to ride.

    That will be a great upgrade for him. Is the new one a 600 or 800? Hard to tell from the pic.
  11. I'M BACK!!!!!!

    Congrats on the retirement, will be watching for you for sure. Not the typical Old Fart equipment...

    That's one way to get a new rail. How many miles did you have on the Shift? I know it got lots of use.
  13. GPS use in heavy snow

    Probably a good plan. I have a GPS on my sled, and rely on it, but I keep a map with me too. Between that, and the maps at the trail junctions in that area, you should be fine. If you think you may be out after dark, bring a flashlight. Can be hard to see those maps in the dark... Looks like Sunday we will be all doing this >> Remember not to point your snowblower chute into the wind...

    I have never had trouble in the car, so I would think you would be fine. Probably want to make sure you keep it dry though. I always carry a map, as a backup.
