  1. Archery.

    There are always a bunch at your local range on consignment to try.... you'll know the right one when you shoot it.
  2. Tekvest Trail Pro

    I can be a cheapass, but I won't ride without it. Specifically for the backpack wearing, stand up, active off trail rider. https://tekrider.com/collections/tekvest/products/the-crossover
  3. WTF Manitoba Hydro

    only place atvs aren't allowed is where the trail crosses private land. ...it isn't cool to wreck what sledders pay to maintain, but there's no law against it.
  4. AvE

    Arduino vs evil.... Eastern Canadians say the funniest shit. "Swedish nut lathe"
  5. Do you drink and ride?

    Minus the Mohawk helmet, we have a big group of 40+ year olds.... we ride offtrail as hard as our bodies allow.... with go pro's...and backpacks , and we never sit down... it isn't trail riding punk wannabe ricky racers.... That isn't drinking... your liver kills off a shot an hour, so those two drinks are completely gone by the time you hit the parking lot. One drink at lunch is a waste of time. If guys were having one an hour, then WGAF. Its when they get into it a bit harder that its straight to no.
  6. What's for dinner???

    Rib steak, Montreal steak spice. I don't need to eat again till Tuesday.
  7. McDonalds has new help

    Winnipeg and Steinbach have these kiosks since last year.... now you can walk in first, and if you're a bit slow on the ordering, you can be 15th in line if others are quick at the kiosk. Gladly I only go to McDonalds once or twice a year.
  8. Wow!

    Those statements contradict themselves.... and ORV's aren't allowed to travel on roads at all. They are only allowed to cross. In MB, you have coverage no matter how stupid you are, unless as stated, you ignore warning signs.
  9. Wow!

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/2-trucks-plunge-through-ice-on-red-river-1.660852 Insurance will likely cover trucks Brian Smiley, spokesman for Manitoba Public Insurance, said over-eager ice fishermen are usually behind vehicles that fall through ice. Most of the incidents are covered by insurance, he said. "We don't often punish for stupidity, for lack of a better word," he said. "The vehicle owner certainly would be questioned, they would be spoken to, perhaps even a bit of a safety lecture, but at the end of the day, their truck would probably be covered." However, there is a point where a claim might be denied, he said. "If there's signs posted saying, 'Thin ice, don't go out,' or warning signs, and the vehicle owner continues to just ignore those signs, then there could be a very strong likelihood that that claim could be denied and the owner would be out without his truck."
  10. Wow!

    In Manitoba, You have coverage no matter where you operate your vehicle. As far as on closed roads... : https://www.portageonline.com/local/mpi-closed-smiley-3pm A spokesperson for Manitoba Public Insurance says it is an urban myth that Autopac coverage is void if a motorist is involved in a collision on a closed highway. Some major highways in southern Manitoba have been closed on two separate occasions since Christmas as the result of stormy weather. But Brian Smiley says if someone chooses to venture out onto a highway that is closed, they will still have insurance, provided they have a valid Autopac policy. Smiley says he doesn't know where the myth started, but it is something they have been hearing over the last few years. And, he doesn't know how things work in private insurance jurisdictions. But, just because you won't lose your insurance, doesn't mean you won't still be lighter in the wallet if you decide to gamble by driving down a closed highway. According to RCMP, motorists can be ticketed. The fine is approximately $240. The decision to close a highway is made by Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation with advisory from RCMP. It considers such factors as the number of calls for service, road conditions and visibility.
  11. Wow!

    I find the insurance thing to be strange... you have coverage for going through the ice on a lake ffs....
  12. Happy Black History Month!

    This is all that needs to be said.
  13. A while ago, my wife came at me with the gender wage gap bullshit, and my daughter jumped on board with her. Today she told me how foolish she felt for blindly going along with the myth. It was a good lesson for her. She also told me that her friends have accused her of 'Man-splaining'..... ...she'll do fine LOL
  14. I struggled with the same bullshit... English teacher with the 'hidden' meaning of something in a book, and French teacher (feminist) on abortion. English teacher got me bad grades, French teacher expelled me from class.....I learned quite a bit from those experiences, and was glad it happened that way.
  15. And yes, although I don't feel i spend enough time discussing politics and world news with my daughter, I do my best to play the devils' advocate and try to make her explain her views on different subjects. Even if i agree with her, i'll lead with the opposite, to see if she can defend herself. Its a fun game. I don't expect her to agree with me on everything...and that's how it should be.
