This was a great season to have some new iron !  :sledder:

It was really hard for me to justify the costs, but having 3-4 feet of snow on the ground for 1/2 the season was really nice ! Especially for goofs like me buying a longer track sled..... I still think I can squeeze a few hours in the woods next weekend  :blush:

I was hoping to get one more ride in this weekend, but I have family staying with me this weekend, last minute - so I think I blew my shot....
Hoping I can mess around on my property next weekend, and just play in the shady forest .......  :blush:

Between both machines, my mileage total is 1,350 for the season.

Now I need to tear down my Ski Doo motor as I stuck it on that last ride with 9,995 miles on it. My goal was to reach 10,000 but that didn't happen.....  :banghead:
Need to see how bad I damaged the motor, hoping just for a top end swap out and keep it as a spare machine....

People are still trail riding near my place, but this week is going to be a real challenge with temps in the mid 50's during the day.....

Hey Andy, you sure this isn't you posting on another user name? Looks like your garage/hanger. When did you add the carpet? :shrug:
Looks nice!!!

SP's hanger got "less clean" since the last time you've seen it  :floor:

Nice ride Zman! I could use one of those!

Vilas conditions are going to change drastically starting tomorrow. I am probably done. Around 1800-1900 miles this season

Low 50's starting 03/14/19, but still more snow in the forecast later in the week.
I'm hoping to get one more ride in, even if it's on my own property ......

virgin as in never been modded or apart :biggrin: nun been changed once tho

I when hear you use the words Virgin and Nun in the same sentence, I still think lie......  :floor:

I've got a 06 or 05 gtx 500SS with a virgin motor in it.  its been parked in the hangar all season.  was seriously thinking of selling it for cheap.... if your looking for a motor donor you could get a lot of other parts too.   Dr. Greekenstein - the cadaver is warm

When you say the word "Virgin" it sounds like a complete lie.
Kinda hoping to throw a top end kit on for under $300........ and keep it as a spare sled.....

My 600SB is an awesome machine! Really happy with it thus far !

Unfortunately, I decided to run my 600REV last weekend in hopes to get 10,000 miles on it. At the 9995 mile mark, she let go  :'( Last five miles were on a tow rope back to the Greekshack.
Gives me something to do in the off season I suppose.....  :blush: It's going to turn into a back up / kids sled.....

My brother is up near Land-O-Lakes, Wi and sent me this yesterday. The satellite quite working so someone had to go up on the roof of the cabin and shovel it out! :thumbsupsmileyanim:
Looks like it was easier getting down than climbing up!

I'm bringing a 25 foot roof rake with me b/c I was having some ice dams form and water dripping into the greekshack.
DB that build the place back in 1999 installed the metal decking direct to the roof rafters (no plywood / no ice water membrane). Place never had heat or power until I purchased it, so now I'm having some issues when the heat is on..... I usually don't complain about 4-5 feet of snow, because it typically sheets off the metal roof, but it came down all at once and it seems to want to stay up on there for some reason....

1,000 miles on the new sled this year and 200 miles on my old one. Having a decent season !  :thumbsupsmileyanim:

Last few from the first ride of the season. Have lots more pics from rides 2,3,4,5 but no time to download right now.

Hoping this site does a rebound, b/c she's been barely alive lately....

Built a New Years eve bonfire with some dear friends !

I took it easy while braking in the new motor.....  :mf_w00t2:

General Snowmobile Discussion / Decent snow conditions (for once)....
« on: February 20, 2019, 03:12:55 PM »
My cabin has around 3-4 feet as a base, with light snow falling every few days. Just came back from a long weekend ride and saw some of the best trail and off trail conditions I have ever experienced in my area. Feels good to buy a new machine, and actually use it ! I have over 1,000 miles on the new sled so far, and I hope to get 1-2 more rides in before the season ends....

Here are some pics of ride #1, just after Christmas

We have enough snow now that there is plenty to groom. I went across Peltier Lake yesterday and was concerned that I would make it across with the 18" of fluffy snow on top of the slippery ice underneath. I have 195 miles on the new sled so far and a happy sledder.

Very nice !

I was sure we'd all be doomed with new sled purchases (of having a bad snow year) but so far, I've had some pretty decent conditions by me in the UP !
Trip #4 is this weekend  :thumbsupsmileyanim:
