RIDE'N WITH THE BOYZ
March 5, 2011  

The Macdowall Community Club put on a great rally. They have a large community center, provided some great food and put on a draw for numerous prizes. We arrived in time for the pancake breakfast and were the first sleds in the parking lot, but there was a full parking lot of trucks, trailers and sleds in no time! So we signed up for the rally and then took off into the Nisbet Forest Reserve to do some extra exploring before heading out on the rally. With some odd 40 miles on the clock, 3 of the sleds were down to a 1/4 tank of fuel! The ride through the Dry Saskatchewan Powder was top notch, WOT cruising over the hills and around the forest to McFarlane Creek. Always in deep snow on the No Rock Nisbet historic fur trade trails,  we were steering only by moving your weight from side to side with the pressure of your feet on the running boards! From past experience one of our group compared the snowmobile work out to a trip he had made to the mountains! This is certainly a way to get rid of a couple extra pounds! He was adamant that we should "get the #%@# out of here" it was way to much of a work out, and head out on the firm prairie snow! After lunch we headed back into Macdowall to top up with extra fuel we had brought along. From Macdowall we rode across country around to the rally 1/2 way point, from there it was a quick trip back for supper and draws for the prizes.


Black, teal, red, and orange!

She was pretty cool right after we had breakfast with the MacDowall bunch.

Dry Saskatchewan Powder

Deep Saskatchewan crystal clean powder.

And if you hit it right "air time is available".

The 1 Liter variety can wheelie on demand!

You can get tossed off the big guns!

And the big guns are known to devour the odd belt here and there!

Nice tracks on the creek!

This is getting a little vertical!

There is a beaver house in the middle of McFarlane Creek.

There were hot dogs at the half way point.

Soaked the balaclavas are getting dried out on the pipe.

Those Bulrushes   sure make a mess!

Look closely this is what a 1000 cc sled looks like under the hood with the belt in good shape! This one only took like 3 or 4 belts in one day. OK in all fairness it did turn out to require a motor mount update.

I spent a few minutes surveying the damage after following buddy thru that shit storm W.O.T. down the middle of the road past some of the nicest ditches you will ever see. So I follow back off the road into the ditch, then in 0 visibility directly thru the trees as pictured.

OMG there is more to this story than what meets those grins...ya ok maybe we are even for the 4 belt stories!

Whose idea was it to go down the road at 90per anyways!

 I see that very same tree again
 

Wow I can hardly believe this tree is still hanging over the fence line in the Carlton Trail grid 7 years later !Yourstruly
