Hey all, I was just wondering about the ice highway. A friend of mine moved to Moosonee this year and I want to visit him up there. I heard about the ice highway that usually get assembled through the winter, but more interstingly I heard rumor it will run from Cochrane to Moosonee this year in particular. Has anyone ever driven the iceway with their sled as a trip or do most usually just take their trucks? I think it'd be a wild run on a sled. Seeings how far it is in a STRAIGHT line (not counting the actual corners and such lol) I'm sure I'd need a couple jerry's lol. :drunk:

I definitely will, hopefully someone else can post up if they have more info. I'll get my buddy up there to look into it further. It'd be wild to take a trip that far up north in what is basically a PERFECT sled highway lol :banana:

The only way to make it to Moosonee by sled is with Extream Tours out of Cochrane. No other way to get fuel other than set it up with them as far as I know.

Good info, I was under the impression from a couple people that there would be an actual plowed ice hwy, like the one we used to make accross lake temagami in the winters, that one could drive from cochrane to get to moosonee. I assumed you could just follow that with a sled. I guess maybe I was told wrong. Unless this is going to be a new thing this year?

LOL!! I used to stay in Temagami at New Years about 15 or 16 yrs ago!! Some of the cars would drive as fast as the sleds across the lake to Bear Island!!! Back then, the kids on Bear Island used to drool over our sleds!!! Life was more isolated back then I suppose for them!!

Hey, did you ever get around to winterizing your boat this year?? Or did you just leave it in the water??!!!!

Nope I don't actually own a boat. I USED to live in Temagami about 10 yrs or so ago, I live closer to cochrane now. Bear Island was always an interesting place wasn't it :smilielol:
