Toronto groomers eh. Are they those Brampton turbine guys grooming the 401 as their trucks are sliding sideways on the white sand ? LOL

Ya, but that usually comes before we have anything really established....when you go from potentially a great looking year, to this...it is a real kick in the head.

Plus, just a few days ago it was a minor mild spell with cold & snow to follow....could not get any better than that, settle things down nice, than hit with cold and snow!

Kinda good that we aren't getting the snow they had initially called for this weekend.  It might give things a chance to freeze back up. Every low-lying area is flooded and there is LOTS of water moving in the bush.

We did lose a surprising amount of snow in Muskoka though. I have seen warmer, wetter and more prolonged weather do less damage to the snowpack.  I guess with the extreme cold things were never able to set up and with it being so loose it melted easily.

Just busting yer balls.  I actually think that you should add a rusty appliance or two to your front porch, put an old dead Snowcruiser on the lawn and a broke down Yardworks lawn tractor out front. It'll help you blend into the neighbourhood.

I said the same thing to myself when our sleds and trailer was pulling out of the driveway hooked to the back of someone else's truck. 

Now a week later here I sit in Muskoka,  it's mid-January, the snowmobile trail crosses my property and I couldn't go for a decent ride if I wanted to. If I  had any sellers remorse at the time,  I am certainly not feeling it now.

Its hard to believe we are going through the 3rd winter in a row with poor conditions.

Plus temps and more rain forecast for next weekend.

I'm actually looking to upgrade the old Cheetah Touring. She's hauled a lot of wood and is still a good machine, but it is getting a little tired. So I am on the hunt for a replacement. An Enticer 410 would be ideal, but I am open to any and all suggestions.  Needs to be a long track,  fan cooled and have a hitch and reverse. A 340 twin or larger is preferred, but I am not opposed to a Bravo Trapper if the price was right.

I agree. Was happy as hell yesterday after I watched the last one go. Too much heart ache and crap associated.  Too cold. Too hot no snow. Blah blah blah

Still will be looking for a snowmodrinking sled to rip around on. 

Although I need a ranger so that's the next purchase after  I sell my Polaris 700 atv.

The last few years I have had more fun on my bush beater sleds than anything.

Added another quad last June to upgrade my Kingquad.  Could be the future.
