    Well that sucks

    And newbies to the sport... We've been sledding in the Apsley area since Winter '70 & there have been a few drownings due to bad ice over the years. The most recent pair were a couple that were on Jack's Lake much too soon for the conditions a couple of years ago. The 'narrows' is bad & not safe. Anstruther has had 3 or 4 drownings @ the north end when people drove into the open water (mid winter even in the coldest winters). You have folks that are new to cottaging or never wintered. They would likely have no idea where the 'no go' areas of their lake are.
  2. After reading the posts, I was talking to the neighbour at our woodlot on Sat' & said that I'd had the sled out on the property. Neighbour: Did you hear what happened in Tweed? Me (expecting news of a sledding fatality): No was there an accident? Neighbour: No apparently they're fining and turning people around with snowmobile trailers. Me: I'm not sure if that's legit or not (and I told him what you had said. I'm guessing Tweed is in you territory Sean? This is getting really stupid. A lot of these 'I heard it from a cousin who's friend told him he saw it on Face
  3. Thanks! The helmet looked like 1 of those $45 Crappy Tire open face versions... Some people go all out for the best helmet (in their mind) that money can buy, while others go for the 'cheapest bucket' that they can find...
  4. Speaking of helmets, here's a new one. (As a cyclist I shake my head when I see 'riders' wearing a ball cap under their helmet. Not really sure how that would work out on impact) Now to today, two older couples ride by on 4 Harleys. The second 'woman' and I use that term loosely, was wearing a baseball cap under her open face helmet. We've heard grumbling about the police checking helmet straps at spot checks on the trail. Discussion has gone back and forth about whether this is for checking for helmet secureness and/or booze on the operators breath. Now to my question Sean, what wou
  5. Dumb question of the day. Quoted from Faceplant: I've been driving since '77 or '78 & never heard of this until today. Barefoot yes. File this along with the "it's illegal to leave the trailer hitch installed" nonsense?
  6. That's not the EOTA though. You can 'ride' the length of the Hastings Heritage trail & you'd be hard pressed to see where they've done anywork. I think the EOTA caused some issues w/ the implementation of the Hav-A-Ball loop that the OFSC was planning last winter.
  7. X2 on both bolds. The km markers & the stop signage needs a major refurbishment. The decking on the Heritage Trail on most bridges is in awful shape. I think even though the carbides & studs cause the majority of damage, the sled clubs are hesitant to repair the decking because the ATVers see the most usage of the trail. The only project I recall the EOTA being involved in was replacing the bridge by the Bancroft airport a few years ago. A few years ago an ATV club in Havelock was trying to 'take over' the E107 towards Apsley. I can't see how that would help ATVing

  9. Saw this on Faceplant, Between Stirling & Marmora...
  10. There was a traffic accident a week or so ago on Highway 7 on the outskirts of Peterborough @ a set of traffic lights. One of the drivers was charged w/ 'Failure to avoid an accident' (or something like that). Can you clear that up?
  11. I was only thinking of 'suspended' (I didn't realize it was termed a 'prohibition') due to an impaired conviction. I had forgotten about the provincial suspensions due to unpaid fines etc. So those suspensions would apply to motor vehicles as well. Thanks again.
  12. Apparently the school where she was studying to be a dental hygienist threw her out after the chair incident...
  13. Apparently she's been edited out of the video. Fame is so fleeting...
  14. Looks like she's trying not to swallow something: I don't know how describe her lawyer. I'm thinking he's not in the same league as Brian Greenspan... Brian Greenspan
