Out in the middle of nowhere we discover a recently
"re-roped" recoil...
...no longer recoiling.
"Tough Times"!
 it is time to open the tool kit and wrap the clutch with the supplied service rope.

Now we are looking for directions and I am
"Stuck In The Middle With You"!

Yes even 4 strokes make wind!
"Are You Ready Steve?"

When do we go
Curling
with the 800 club?

A really cool looking pioneer
Homestead
in the trees, they are pretty old but still have 4
"Walls!"

The local inhabitants have chewed up anything they could get there teeth on.

Just the architecture of this chimney has caught my eye. Never seen anything like it.

Lindsey
Cemetery
to bulrush city!


Our gal says

"I Hear You Knocking!"
...and we switch sleds, ."There goes my baby!"

it turns out, ice is coming loose in the tunnel with warmer running cross-country and just disintegrates on its own.

Across the main grid to the NW access
 point near the Miners Creek Trail.



 


Another series of sloughs in our path.


Someone following to close and getting thoroughly Roosted!


Hey these are non-cigar smoking snowmobiles!


Stuck


The Saber Cat leaps into another field.

Someone is stuck! And when you are stuck
"Nothing Comes Easy"!


Pounding some more drifts the Saber Cat is in the air again...
"Do It Again!"


Wow entering this quarter, I am shocked to see the whole thing virtually covered by Bulrushes and I would presume water.




Trees down on the trail.



Entering the NISBET Forest by The Miners Creek Trail

Like a tunnel the trees have filled in.
At this point we enter the maze of small
Trails
that spider web all over this section of the Nisbet.
 
And down onto Miners Creek Pond


Back to the start routine.
"It is All Right Now!"

We arrive at the...
The Old Crutwell Crossing
...and have a slightly eroded...

...North Branch
bank to bounce over.

It looks to me like a practice all but banned in schools now......

...a good old face washing with fresh snow!

With a face full of frosty snow he is likely
"Sniff 'n' the Tears"!

Crossing the Holbein
Eskers...
...where the old
 
Fire Tower

 used to stand.

This is roughly our morning route,
 north towards #302 hiway.


Looks like I should of...

...ZIGGED...

...when I...

...ZAGGED...!

At this point I have someone who is never out of gas, mentioning low fuel! We start dipping the tanks with sticks.



The Holbein Tempo was a welcome sight! For a while there I was wondering if I
 
“Can’t Find My Way Home” !

We are back in the Eskers and...


...yes I know exactly where we are this time!

On top of the world who is riding our
 "Black Betty"?

Lets go find a place out of the wind to BBQ!

A big drift of the top edge of the esker makes transitioning down a geometric challenge!

We pull into the bush and find
" Another Time Another Place "
The
BBQ

Hey who is that in the PINES!
She "Could of Been a Lady!"
Man I was hungry, didn't even cook a Dog on the fire, just ate 'em out of my pipe oven.

There is Hot Dogs then there is
"High Grass Dogs"!

Back out across the North Branch

Miners Creek Trail to the Fire Guard Trail.


Off the Fire Guard Trail

There is a sun somewhere!

We have an old straw bale under the snow get' in us over centered!

OK stand back this is getting tricky...

"Don't run me down!"

I catch a ride up to my sled.

This last bottle neck opens up into more fields.
 


And then there was EIGHT!

After wandering fields and tree lines for miles we pop out onto a road. Hey where is our...
"Gypsy Queen!"
Listening carefully we can hear it! "Help" "Help" "Help" But hey "I Call No Answer!"

Finally in familiar territory we hustle to beat the storm brewing.

ONLY IN SASKATCHEWAN!
