2017 did the Valentine 500 with Nick Kellar.  17hrs.  Did a 350 mile ride the day before by accident all by myself.  So 850 miles in 2 days.  I am what they call a hardcoresledder....  LOL

I think I got 225 a couple of years ago.  Pretty much never wanna do that again unless I have a sled set up for it.  50-125 is my range.  Ima lightweight.

Riviere du loup, 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. but the conditions were as good as it gets flat and hard

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.

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.

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

319. And we not only stopped for each meal, but dined in. Lol.

This was this past winter. No lakes, no rivers. All inland in the NorthEast. Not bad for a 51yr old on a 12,00 mile all original (but track and ski’s) 05 900 Fusion.lol

Had to bug out at noon next day , covid was starting to shut things down snd empty store shelves, so had to go on home supply mission. :(

301 miles.  Actually rode back and forth a few miles to get to that.   Was done in North Bay to Sudbury and part way around the BIG LAKE (Nippising) and back.  The ride home was brutal on the railroad grade as they only groom(ed) it once every couple of days.   Did that on the ZR900.  It was GREAT !

412 miles in one day Wisconsin and Michigan trails on a 2016 Pro-R 800.  With the guys usually have multiple 300 plus mile days per year depending on the trails.

Maybe around 180-200.  Not much reason to do any more for me.  Most days are around 100 if we're going out for a good ride somewhere.  My funnest days are off trail and mileage is probably a fraction of that.  

If the itch ain't scratched in 100 miles then I'm doing it wrong.  Not much into riding for the sake of riding.  We ride wooded trails that are narrow and twisty and turny.  Most are beat after a day of trying to keep up.

in the UP last year they have a ride for cancer "Snowball for Cancer" last year they did a 700 mile ride in 23 hours they will be doing it again this year. Let me know if you're interested I can hook you up. My best 318 miles after that it becomes a job.

snowballcancer.org  is what you are talking about Badger.  Nick Keller is the man.  Thats the outfit I did my 500 mile day with.  One hell of a story from that guy.  Good story and even better cause.  You should go on there and buy a tshirt if nothing else.

On a sled, probably only a couple hundred.  Motorcycle, 1079 in 17.5 hrs.  South Haven MI to Torrington WY on my way to Alaska.  Oh yea, and I was hauling a trailer behind the bike too. 😉

      Past or present, post a snowmobile related picture that you like for whatever reason

      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.
