320 miles in 2009 on the vermont border to border ride. Started at 4:30am and finished around 8:30pm. The trails were super twisty/windy, mountainous, and were beat to shit from a hundred plus other guys starting in front of us. It was a cool experience but I don't want any part of it ever again. Most days our group does 100-150 miles which I enjoy more than the big mile days.

That sounds like quite a ride :good:  I don't think they do the border to border ride anymore.

Nope, that was the last year I believe. I've heard it was because of some towns not wanting a couple hundred sleds ripping through at 5 in the morning. But it was probably a nightmare to organize anyway. That might have had something to do with it too.

Dozens of 650 mile days over the years....Leave Chicago at 1a.m. Drive all night in the truck to Iron Mt, Mi...That's the first 310 miles... Arrive just at sun up...Drop the truck and trailer in the lot at the Comfort Inn...Head west on trail #2...Then north to the Gogebic Lodge for lunch...Hookup with Trail #8 heading east...To Trail #5 heading south...Back on Trail #2 heading west to Iron Mt....Back in Iron Mt before sunset... Total trail miles are 330-340 mi on that particular loop...Power drink with the locals till closing time......Then start all over again at 7a.m. the next morning..........

Did the loop this year in -30 before windchill.  Warm up shelters are a wonderful thing up there

      Is there a snowmobile speed limit in your state or province? Is it enforced? 
      NH has a state wide speed limit of 45 mph. Fish and Game gives you 10 mph and wont ticket you unless you are going 56 mph or above. Here in VT the only speed limit is on state and federal land where the speed limit is 35 mph.

      The snowmobile trails around here in the NEK of VT officially open December 16th provided there is enough snow for them to open. I have ridden before Xmas 2 out of the 3 seasons I've lived here. However, the good riding doesn't usually begin until after New Years.

      I used to average around 3,000 miles a season when I lived in NH. Since moving to Vermont is been closer to a thousand.
