  1. Storm Last Night

    Got LOTS of wind here in central Ma last night from the tropical storm. Many power outages, trees down, branches everywhere. One band of heavy rain for us, not much really. Did you get much damage up there? Wondering about downed trees on trails. Given that everyone is going to be short of cash this year due to limited fundraising, we don't need more work to do.

    That's right, I remember now, got in under the wire. Well done. Just make sure the screws for those flaps are tight...

    Well done. You must have some low numbers on the stickers.
  4. Grass Drags Cancelled

    Hopefully people take things seriously this summer, and keep infection rates low, which can result in fewer restrictions for out of state travelers. There is talk of a vaccine becoming available in the next six months. I think that until there is a vaccine that is widely available, we are going to struggle.
  5. Quarrentine Check in

    So everything is about normal with you then.
  6. Quarrentine Check in

    My mother-in-law is in a nursing home. Has a stoke a little over two years ago, between that and dementia (she is 90 years old), she really needs to be in that environment. We cannot visit her, which has been a challenge. My wife and her family have made sure she gets a visit every day up until the nursing home went into lockdown. We talk to her on the phone, to the extent that we can, she seems to be doing OK. According to reports we get from the nursing home, two employees, and 3 residents have tested positive. We hare just waiting and hoping she doesn't get sick, it likely won't end well. This thing does a lot of damage in nursing homes.
  7. Quarrentine Check in

    Just checking in to see how everyone is doing. I have been lucky, I can do my job from home, can work with customers via teleconference, it is a software company, so we don't make a physical product. Everyone is working from home, getting things accomplished, getting new customers on line. My wife can work at home as well, she has a desk on the other side of the house, things are going smoothly for us. We are feeling good, our kids and grandkids are safe at home as well. My home office is a pretty comfortable place to work. How are the rest of you doing? Is your family healthy? Are you able to work? Do you think the grass drags will be cancelled???
  8. Not enough snow?

    The snowmobiling video look like a vintage ride in NH. The mountains look a little different, but the trees look very similar, along with the trails.
  9. Snow Traveller

    I finished reading the latest and last issue for this season. The quality of this publication really has improved in the last couple of years. The new format really is better, the content is better. And, I got only one copy of each one.
  10. Christmas bulbs

    OK - So is it time to take them down now??? After all, it's almost Easter.

    It really was a light snow winter. We did good to get in the riding that we did. Biggest storm for us here in central Mass was in November. Could see the lawn for most of the winter. Looks like lots of clubs will be shutting down this week.
  12. Colman St Park

    Thanks for the update, it was helpful. We visited the Mountain View Grand two weeks ago, it looked like this. Made a reservation to stay this past Sun to Tuesday. Arrived to find this. Wound up trailering up to Coleman SP on Monday, rode from there. It was 60 degrees there at one point on Monday. Found some great trails, but sometimes we would come around a corner, and it would be mud for 100 - 300 yards, then back out of the sun, and it was OK again. Some areas were great, but I doubt there will be much left by this coming weekend. This was at the aptly named Grandview snack shack.

    Any chance of riding from there Monday?
  14. Trail signage issues

    I'm sure that is more important in your area, where there is lots of ATV usage. Maybe there could be a way to denote on signs that they are for snowmobile or ATV users. Or use the same route numbers for trails that are used by both user groups? I was up in that area a few weeks back, and noticed multiple trail signs that were ATV focused, and that caused some confusion for me for sure, those signs are not all coming down for the winter. I can't say for sure which clubs trails I was on, so this may not pertain to your club specifically. I have to think that it is difficult to get volunteers to do all that work. Seems to me that routing signs, and stop signs are most important. Most of the rest could be lower priority, if necessary. I agree with the policy put in place a few years back where many of the arrow signs were eliminated, partly for the reason of volunteers. I would think that in the more northern clubs, where things are more spread out, vandalism could be a bigger issue, but the idea of permanent signs does seem to have some merit, if they can be left up all year.
  15. Choko gloves

    This is probably your best bet. We have some clothes from Choko, and like them. https://chokodesign.com/stores/dealers.html
