I tried something yesterday to see if it works and lo and behold it did. I wanted to know if the Lions were just as laughable on mute as they are with the sound on. They are!!! The Culpepper pass to a Lion receiver that wasn’t in the same area code was priceless even with the sound off. Thank God that cluster of a painful season is behind us.
It was a very busy weekend in these here parts both at the motel and on the trails and everyone reported having good to great rides. We did have a couple in that have been with us for years and she reported some extreme difficulty with her vision, especially at night, which had nothing to do with the trail conditions and they thought maybe diminished night vision was the issue. Let’s face it none of us are getting any younger. Turns out she was wearing a new helmet and apparently it’s important to remove the shield’s protective film from both the outside AND the inside before using. Hope to SEE you guys back soon. Pun intended.
TIME TO MOVE ON, EATING DINNER IS IN MY IMMEDIATE FUTURE:
THE TEMPORARY RE-ARRAIGNMENT OF SNOW ON A SNOWMOBILE TRAIL a.k.a. GROOMING:
Last week was a definite haul. Going back to back to back and on and on it goes becomes physically painful in your neck over a short period of time. This comes from constantly looking back at the drag in order to adjust for changing snow conditions. We do have Cab Cameras aimed at the drags with monitors to observe what’s going on behind us but with the early season conditions that we are currently experiencing it’s still the best option to turn around and look. A couple of us spent most of today moving the tractors to two garages for routine maint. tomorrow and we will be back online on Wednesday.
I took a ride on Le’ Classique today to look at the Fredericanville trail #7 because it is our most popular segment and it hasn’t been on my grooming route for a while. It got snirtier as a result of heavy weekend traffic as expected. Is it good? Well it’s flat and it’s snirty and we have the Price group in that said it’s probably the flattest they’ve seen it and no complaints. I’m forced to call that segment fair because of the snirtiness with the rest of our system fair to good. How many variations of snirt can I possibly come up with? The other trails that I rode weren’t nearly as snirtful (there’s another one) and were flat and all in all a good ride. Not premium, but not a bad ride. Thank you very much your snirtfullness.
Not sure what to believe here after looking at all of our sources. We have a shot at some snows everyday but nothing that amounts to much but anything will do and be welcomed with open arms at this point. On the bright side the temps look to behave for the foreseeable so we won’t lose what we have.
Next report Thurs,
Ride Often and Please Be Safe,
