  1. The Notch

    I have done that trail. It isn't fast, but it sure is scenic. The tunnels back and forth under the highway are cool as well.
  2. Trails look great. Visiting my son in Indianapolis this weekend, so no riding here. Have plans to go to Gorham this coming weekend, praying the snow holds...
  3. Sled NH running on Invision Community Platform

    I am sure there are other options, but for a forum, I can't imagine there would be much of an advantage in them. This tool seems to do everything needed, isn't buggy, is reliable, and easy to read. CKF might be able to tell you something about the administration side, seems to me you would want something that is reasonable easy to organize and take care of, so you can focus on other aspects of your business. I hope you are successful with your venture.
  4. Seems like 5 - 7 inches of snow, with a little rain on top would groom up well once it gets cold again.
  5. We really needed this, it will make a big difference for lots of clubs.
  6. 2018 School Vactions NH-MA

    The Mass vacation week is most always the week of Presidents day. Seems like NH picks the following week every year. I always wondered if the ski resorts had a hand in picking the NH week to spread things out.
  7. Trail side - camping

    You're right, it can be done, but it isn't for the faint hearted, and definitely not for the unprepared.
  8. Trail side - camping

    I used to work with a guy who liked to winter camp in the Whites, solo. He liked the solitude, I always thought it was dangerous. Came back once with a story about a bear getting into his tent. Tore it up, made a mess, lucky for him he wasn't there. Book he was reading had a tooth mark in it 50 pages deep..
  9. Trail side - camping

    So are you saying that if I sleep in my backyard every night I could lose some weight???
  10. Waste of Good Snow

    Got about 4 inches here overnight, all in the wrong place. Lets hope Mother Nature works on her navigation skills a bit for the next one.
  11. Waste of Good Snow

    That's promising. See what happens when we take the Christmas lights down???
  12. lights

    Lights are gone - bring on the snow!
  13. Trail side - camping

    Well done - great memories for all.
  14. lights

    I'm thinking that it might be time to take the lights down. Might cause a favorable change in the weather, and I'm willing to try anything that might work...
  15. I also saw comments with suggestions that the people who want to ride off trail get together, define the places (if there are any) where it is permitted, and share the info. That would take pressure off trail closings because people ride where they shouldn't* *Assuming the dummies in the group ride where it's legal, instead of wherever they want.
  16. ATV club theft

    It isn't only snowmobile clubs. A local woman was taking money from the 4H account she managed, I have heard of PeeWee football accounts getting stripped, it goes on and on. Peer audits sound like a great idea to me. Just for fun, what if the New York, VT, NH and Maine state associations acted as a clearing house, matching up clubs, then the state associations auditing each other. Would help educate everyone, find small problems while they are small, and maybe turn up some bigger stuff. If nothing else, false accusations and conspiracy theories would subside if there were regualar audits.
  17. Soo decent day turns really bad

    My brother-in-law has that same trailer, it's nice, has held up well since he got it. Of course, no one has crashed into it yet...
  18. Ride on Sunday?

    Thanks for that update. I rode from there once, enjoyed it, hope to do it again this year. But not tomorrow...
  19. Ride on Sunday?

    Was planning to come up and ride with my brother on Friday, we cancelled for obvious reasons (which I shall not name). It's hard for met to know how much cover there is there from my perspective, what is the thought of there being enough left to ride on for Sunday? Can you still park and ride from the lot at the entrance to the Lakes Region Casino? I did that a few years back, had good ride from there, and it isn't too far north. Thanks for the input.
  20. Damnit! (If that's allowed)

    Try breaking some bulbs, might help your blood pressure a bit...
  21. Ride on Sunday?

    I'm afraid you might be right, may need to wait till next weekend to get a better picture.
  22. Online Membership Update

    This is a slap on the hand for the NHSA for sure. Seems to me that all the things people have complained about, forcing a uniform price, making everyone a NHSA member being the most obvious are out the window. I hope the results of all of this are good for the sport. If the result is that most people simply join the club with the lowest price, don't check the 'join NHSA' box, take their $30 discount and run, it will not be good for the sport across the state.
  23. Sunday???

    Was planning to do some riding Friday with my brother, but we are going to hold off because of the forecast. Don't mind riding in the snow, but it isn't much fun in liquid form, and I figure it would trash the trails all the more. What are thoughts for Sunday? Will there be enough cover left? I'm thinking it will firm up Saturday night, maybe with some fresh cover. Looking at someplace between Concord and Baker River, maybe heading over towards Winni.
  24. Soo decent day turns really bad

    Regardless of insurance, you should be able to go after the driver that hit you for the value of the trailer, shouldn't you?
  25. Soo decent day turns really bad

    The trailer coverage must vary by state. I checked, and have been told that my trailer is covered in an accident if it is connected to my truck, on my MA policy.
