  1. 5.2 Acres and small "camp" on P152 in Campton

    I know the spot well. Nice area but will need to probably be a cash sale since no septic or well. Traditional bank mortgage will want that...some also want heat (other than wood) and electric. So put your home equity loan to work!
  2. Starting to look a bit like winter finally...

    Got out today with a few friends before the warmer weather and liquid snow (not rain). Hope people stay off the trails in this little "hiccup" in weather this weekend.
  3. Good article...and a good informative read. Hope lots of people get a chance to read it.
  4. Starting to look a bit like winter finally...

    Snowed all day yesterday (Monday) and into the night...guess we are going to get winter 2-4" at a time. 2-4" every couple of days add up!
  5. Starting to look a bit like winter finally...

    Things are setting up a bit now with the cold (in the teens finally) and light snow this morning with in and out snow thru the week. The end of the week does not look good...hope that changes. We need to hook up this winter.
  6. This up and down weather is stressing us all out to no end. Finally got to get out for a quick toot with my wife today. Rain to snow yesterday and then snow over night into today. Headed out after noon with variable conditions in the lower elevations but better and fresh snow higher up. More bits of snow this week and a warm up at the end of the week...go figure. Make the best of what we get! It's coming....just have to wait a little longer. Need to keep the "glass 1/2 full" mentality!
  7. Trail re-route in Rumney

    Yes it is
  8. Trail re-route in Rumney

    If you want to get to and from Plain Jane's Restaurant on RT25 in Rumney, you will be using a new trail off the Railroad Bed next to Riverbrook Campground. DO NOT TRY TO ACCESS it from the old crossing of RT25 by the greenhouses and along Rt25. The Bridge was washed out and is not being replaced at this time. Access off of of Corridor 8. From points west...cross Rt25 and head over to the railroad bed and follow the signs near the big bridge over the Baker River to Plain Jane's. From the east off the rail bed...follow the signs off the rail bed. PLEASE STAY ON THE MARKED TRAIL.
  9. Can you get to the Ice Castle in Woodstock by Sled?

    Yes you can. I have before unless they change location.
  10. There is no "freewheel" bypass on this machine. We are hoping for the best...should know soon.
  11. Formatic. Similar to a Piston Bully sort of.
  12. Can't seem to upload the video
  13. When a groomer breaks down in the woods it is BAD...real BAD. Despite the loss of the ability to make nice trails for a spell...the actual work it takes to either fix it on the trail in the middle of the woods in cold weather and many times in the dark, limited access for tools, supplies and manpower you got to get it done no matter what (and the groomer operator needs to walk out or get a ride out). So if you can't fix it trail side or limp it need to get it out. That is no small task especially for a large machine. Our machine is smaller but none-the-less still quite a bit of work to get it out. We ended up finding a 8 foot truck bed liner and cutting it in 1/2 length wise. We put one 1/2 under one side track and the other 1/2 under the other side and secured it with a ratchet strap. We got a backhoe back in the woods on the trail to pull it out to a waiting ramp truck. Came out slick as sh**. Video below of Fort Mountain Trailwinders in Epsom getting out of the woods despite a night "try to fix it on the trail" in single number temps the night before. So when you see those jugs in dealers, restaurants and local stores with "contribute to the trail fund" make sure you do your financial part please! IMG_1102 (1).3gp
  14. Official 2019 riding pic thread

    Great pictures from everyone...Got a chance to get out yesterday Wednesday. Rode from camp in Groton, Warren, Lincoln, and back to camp thru Central NH trails. Was good except for 156 on the Lincoln maintained section which was rough. 11 south was also fine toward Campton. Took as few side trails which are always less traveled and fun! Still got snow but southern slopes show some thinning. Same every year...elevation is key!
