Still think the most effective way to get the msg across is when someone is caught the machine is taken and crushed in public

People need to ride along with us as we try to get access to private property ,maybe they would respect land owners & stay on the marked trail !!

No vintage snow machines

People think they are entitled, then when they lose the trail they cry and start a boycott. πŸ‘Ž

Trails cams at the gates, you get caught you lose licensing privileges through the state for a min a 5 years

Some idiots don't think these type of signs mean them.

Entitled

That’s awesome! Will be there in a week or 2. On a business related trip.

Very nice

Photo taken in 1916 in front of the Gaylord newspaper office. Probably one of the first snowmobiles in Otsego County, it was a car body on runners powered by a gas engine with a rear mounted propeller.
