Previous. Name of this site
« on: December 24, 2020, 04:03:01 PM »
Was this site called something else before it was ultimatesnowmobiler? When I first got on the internet so many years ago I started at Trail Conditions I believe, that imploded so I moved to another site which I canít remember, thinking it was here under a different name. No real need for this discussion, just sitting here with too much time on my hands lol.

There was snowseekers.net.  That and this site were actually one in the same sharing the same forum.   I did not have auto renew set on the domain name and didn't receive the e-mails of it's renewal, so it expired and got away from me.  :mad:  My mistake, totally! I kicked myself for a long time over that because I liked that name.   :(

The only other name I remember for this site was the nickname "Mayberry". That was from the guys that left TC to come here.

As I recall TC was Sterner's Follies and this site was called Mayberry by the ones on TC that made it fail.
No one could even ask a question on TC without getting beat down. I think this was far better than TC. Maybe smaller but prolly why it was better. I think its smaller now because Mfgs have made new sleds so high they have lost over half their market and low snow in more locations. :thumbdown:

I still love to ride! I have better equipment than I have ever had and money to afford the sport, but too many bad winters are starting to wear me down. Iím getting tired of waiting for snow! Of course one good ride will make me forget all that......

Last winter started out as a real pain in the patukas.
Literately to much snow too early. It was difficult to freeze our swamps down but ended up with some really great trails.
We closed the second Tuesday of March. Well into Supplemental funding.
This year opening trails was way better, simpler with one exception. We did stick one groomer but it was right below a highway, pretty easy to unstuck all things considered.
And the Heavy duty tow truck owner was very kind to us.

This week has been a little busy. Monday a 50 mile ride, Tuesday 70 miles, Wednesday a working 40 mile ride checking some trails, Thursday 100 miles, took Friday off  ;), Saturday 125 miles with a scattered crew. One from Madisonish  Wi, another from Rice Lakeish area of Wis, and three from surrounding the Twin Cities.
Trails are getting thin and snirty but for the conditions yesterday it wasn't too bad all things considered. Even riding through the City of Superior.

And the next club to the south of us has snirt.  :(

TrailConditions.Com

When it first started registration was not required so everyone had several "Handles" as well as personalities. I recall Moon Disc being a moderator there for a while.
I could argue with myself for a week using different handles...
I understand the dilemma. Correct spelling takes time that could be spent licking the windows on the short bus.

I have been retired for eight years and still riding. That was until my lower unit stopped working. Seen the doctor on Monday and she stuck a catheter in my until. She drained 3.175 liters of urine out of my bladder. I will be seeing a urologist on the 19th, so I should have a better idea about being able to ride the rest of the winter.
