Thats cool. I like this forum, its very similar to snowmobilefanatics.com. I spent alot of my time there.
dpaige - At the moment I'm riding a 1991 skidoo safari 377 2up. Its not much, but I'm 16 and it was pretty much handed to me, so I have to be thankful. And right now money is going in a lot of directions and a sled isn't at the top of the list. Wish I had something with a little more guts tho. 2 of my buddies just picked up '02 mxz 800's so i've become the slow one in the group.
I don't do much trailering. Most of our rides are just day trips. I ride with an older group, and we usually just take it easy.
Revrnd - Harcourt is about a 20 min ride from drag lake. If you havn't you should try heading do that way. Haliburton is just south west of Hardcourt, and theres a couple nice resturants, and places to fill up.
Most of you must have riden in the Haliburton Forest. How do you like it? Do you think that the 12$ day pass or whatever it is was worth it?
OLEO, Check out their web site, the price has increased to $30/day and you have to make a reservation as they only allow a certain number of sleds on the property /day. Super nice place to ride especially the less travelled more remote trails but getting a little pricey but since they usually have snow when most places don't a necessary evil.
Over the last few seasons I've become a snow chaser, going where ever it takes to ride.
Oleo, I've run up the Miskwabi trail to get to Haliburton once or twice. Too bad there is road running to get to Head Lake. Peterson Trail is nuts. Too many cowboys heading for & coming back from Lake St. Peter.
Last time I ran in the Forest was New Years '90. Nice place to ride, but I couldn't see the point in buying a season pass. :doh:
Wow I didn't know that it was that much! 30 bucks, thats certainly not worth it. I have never actually riden on their trails, but I'v riden through it. I head the trails were good, but since its privatly own there are no speed limits and the people there are nuts. Its the scariest thing to come around a corner and see a 3 1/2 foot wide sled doing 60km/h on your side....
revrnd - I'm not sure of that route. If I can find a trail map I will post the route that we take to Hardcourt. On head lake on the opposite side of town, there is a trail that goes up someones driveway, and you follow that out untill you hit the hydro lines, that go up to whitney.... Also coming up from the south to Head lake, there is the old railway line that comes from kinmount. What roads were you running?
wOW $30.00 to ride in the forest is a little much. if there is snow and the lake freezes I can ride from home.But I also like to ride in Muskoka, Dorset is also good place to ride. Any where there is snow.
I live in barrie ont.
used to be able to ride from the house but there is a new bylaw now no sleds on the street after 11:00
Central Ont. has good trails A what's up to the Apsley crew I get to Buckhorn and Chandos quite a bit
I try to do a minimum of 4 overnights

It will snow this year we gotta believe!
