Hey you're doing good Jake, we've only been out three times and only logged 440 miles.

What's the problem Cory? I thought Parry Sound was good to go.

Yeah, I often find that low snow years mean more miles as I spend less time (this year almost no-time) playing and more time trial riding.

Cracked 1500 miles today while crossing the Mattawa River. 1580 by the time I got home today.

One of the nice things about the newer machines is the engine hours meter. I'm at about 47 hours total now.

Don't really know how many miles I've put on since my speedometer isn't working, but I'd have to say at least a couple hundred. most miles I've ever put on in a year so far :)

I just realized last night that I had only put on 200 miles before Christmas, so the rest of my miles have come since the 22nd of January. No wonder I'm feeling tired on a monday morning.

Hope you have lots of snow, maybe by that time we'll be desperate enough to drive that far too since our New Liskard ride was cancelled.

Oiey, I was starting to hit 500 miles per week (according to how often I was getting out vs how much snow we were supposed to get), but then instead of getting more snow it stopped. We haven't had a snow fall in over two weeks. Had two nights where there was a slight dusting of snow, but less than 1 cm that's for sure. I managed to get out though, between the groomers deteriorating the ice and loosening it up and more snowmobiles on the trails than there are cars on the highway, there's a lot of loose stuff to protect the hifax from melting, lol.

That said, I had my machine out once in two weeks, and put just over 65 miles on it during that one little trip, lol. Oh well, there IS some snow in the forecast *crossing fingers*. My engine hours are a lot higher, nearing 65 hours running time now. Something to do with starting it up once a week every week all year round :D

Well, I rode 50 of those miles w/ tunedbyear yesterday.. This morning I felt like I'd ridden 200.. LOL.. We were doing a lot of stuff off the beaten path. Then he takes us up this huge powerline hill... Too funny because most of us didn't make it up the hill (o.k. I was the only guy who didn't make it). Jake's wife was the only woman that made it.. I wasn't sure about studs but now I think I might try them.. So two studded arctic cats and two yamahas made it up, Our doo's didn't... No-one had been up it and it LOOKED good but under the snow it was all ice.. I almost slid back into Jake's wife trying to reposition my sled on that hill.. Jake and Gary walked ALL THE WAY DOWN to help everyone get turned around and then they had to hike ALL THE WAY UP to get to their sleds...Great guys!!.. I was embarrassed I couldn't make it up the hill or get turned around w/o help. There were 7 of us and at the end of the day we drank beer and ate chili. Sue and I left around 8pm and didn't get home until 1 am.... Was it worth it? Your damn right it was!. The people we've met that are into this sport are some of the best people out there. Good times..

Seems like I have a lot of catching up to do. I only put on little over 500 miles this year so far. And a total of 829 miles on the sled itself. :crazy:

We've had to trailer for snow all winter....Otherwise I'm sure we'd have more miles... I don't worry about MPG on the sleds anymore. We spend WAY more in gas driving the truck to where the snow is! Good news is a storm is headed our way and 6" of snow is forecast.. woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
