I had high hopes for this season. Saved some vacation days from last year, so I had time, everything was lining up.  Did get my sled registered, and one day trip in. Did a long weekend in Caribou Maine, first time to get to the county, had a good trip there. Planned a trip to Gorham in February, but it got warm and wet, had to cancel. Planned another day trip, planning to ride with my daughter and her boyfriend. Was a go as of Friday afternoon, boyfriend got sick, had to cancel. Next thing I knew, everything south of Coos county was closed.     Better luck next year.

Colder than average doesn't quite cover it! We had one stretch of a couple of weeks in January that it was 20-30 below zero every night, causing the old disappearing wood supply trick to make people wonder. Still people out there riding  up North. All in all a decent season, but never long enough.

Is there any riding from Magallaway towards the border?

We did a few of our trips in January. We judged by how few times we were able to wear our light long underwear. Also had 0 trips with no balaclava and only one trip with the light one.

Still significant numbers of people trailering up to Magalloway and East Inlet. I have found if there is good ground cover out my kitchen window, there is still riding up North. Looking outside right now it's snowing pretty good. Some locals talking about possible May 1st ride from East Inlet. Impossible? We'll see!

I had a pretty good year. 2 trips to Ossipee area, Jackman, and Pittsburg. Gotta chase the snow to find it I guess. Also got another trailer. 700 miles overall. Better than last year.

Took a ride up North mid day yesterday (May 1st) and low and behold went by East Inlet Road and noticed five trucks with four place trailers parked by the banking to rt 3. Another couple of trucks and trailers were parked across from Deer Mountain Campground.  As someone who has been that route, riding on May 1st, I was officially jealous. Hope everyone out there was safe and able to get around. The further up you go the better it gets, especially up around Salmon Mountain. Hats off to those who dared go to where few men had gone before....

May 1st... which requires this year's registration; and after official closure.

And we wonder why the trails are getting shutdown.
