Trails open in less than a week, over 18" on the hill...grooming starts when the trails open...

What kind of interest we got? dates? multiple rides (since gas has gone down, i don't want any complaints!)

I got your number ACM!!! I'm gonna love looking at the spleen's splitter cowl over my shoulder!!! [8D][beatup]

I think it would be neat to have a couple of dates to get a group together. With Gas at around $2 per gallon, sure going to be able to do more for less this year! I am open many weekends as I do not plan much else during snowmobile season!

I'll be up on the hill for a ride on the 27th. But there's a good chance I'll be up there either the 26th or Sunday the 28th. Maybe both. I'm off that Monday and Tuesday too. If I know a good amount of time in advance I can probably make it.

Oh look at this.. everyone wants another stab at the spleen splitter this year cuz they got new sleds [lol8] Come get it baby!

I am ordering a gear today and picking up a new chain today. I hope to have my sled coverted to hyvo ASAP. My drivetrain is shot. I should be tearing into my rear suspension too. I will hog into everything here in the next couple weeks.

I am off work from the 15th to jan 3rd or so. I will be ready to ride as soon as the trails open! Dan, lets go!!

Sled worthy of a thousand miles? haha, I hope mine makes it that far. These old sleds are a bear to keep going problem free with. All the years of wear and tear really take their toll. Fingers crossed for mine!

I sold my trailer. So to get my sled up there I need to put it in my truck or I need to put it on someone elses trailer.

Oh, I got to get my windshield back from trickpaint too [:)]

You want a shot at the title too? [beatup]

Just ordered my new upper TEAM gear and picked up a chain today. Should have the gear box done in 4 days when the stuff gets here.

If you ain't working on it you ain't ridding hard enough!

Saturdays/sundays are good for me as well, just need advanced notice on the sats...

Snow is good now, kinda would like to get it as soon as everyone can...right now it looks like most people are going to have the week before, during and after xmas/new years off...might be a good time to get a small one going?

Hopefully gas will stay this way for a while!! It's amazing to see 1.95 for the first time in 3 years!

It is running :) I just have to do a few things before hitting the trail. new drivetrain, new bearings, wanted to rebuild the shocks but probably wont, raise handlebars if I have time, new belt to order this week. Oh, and get that windshield back from paint to represent the spleen splitter [:D]

After the 15th.. I am ready to rip. Heading out of town for the holidays but will be here other than then.

They got snow up there, we will find it!

What title would that be? [LOL]

It's like a heavyweight going for the welterweight title! when that 600 is ready to step up a few classes let me know![Jack]


JK! The holiday time is good for me riding! I would love to get out on the hill more than once if possible over Christmas.

I liked the idea of meeting up a mdmaniac's place. I hoping you guys decide on a sunday ride that would work out best for me but it's what everyone else wants... not me. sometimes it is hard for me to get saturdays off that is all. But that area may not have enough snow to leave from there...

Where is there good snow up there now? I want to head up to ride next weekend (prob Saturday) and I refuse to spend $80 to buy an Old Forge Trail Pass so no snodeo for me. Other than the time I rode from Blossvale, I normally drop either in Redfield, at the Grist Mill or Winona Forest/ Little John. It is kind of hard to tell where the best place to go would be as the trail reports are not updated yet. Tug Hill Area folks, any snow tips?

This is my sled stuck in redfield

Firecat59's sled stuck also, yes he is standing and is about 6ft tall. Their was at least 4ft of powder.

All of us at flat rock.


-Overall the trails were good a little bumpy here and there. Towards the end the groomers were out and we were lucky enough to ride on some nice flat trails.

-From Florence area and up has enough snow to ride on but, after all the rain I won't be to sure. We dropped at snow ridge in turin n.y.

We got snow, spotty in corners, okay base underneath, need another 6-10" for excellent riding. when we gonna do this group ride, sunday would be best, maybe the weekend of MLK that way we can all have a day to rest?
