Default Woodford Report

Arrived in woodford lot 7:50 met up with master bacon (gotta work on that name) haha. 1/4mile dave rolled in then CK and (backpack) Lauren. Also met ctmax. First of all nice meet you all. Started out messin around the trails in woodford area and the trails were good, Headed 7n lots of snow some open waterbars but it's like that all over, went up to Jenks for hot lunch and fuel. headed down 7s to come up on a melted down 2011 ski-doo the only thing on that to prove it was a sled was the clutch. The guy riding it was ok but his boot and sock was melted to his skin and he didn't want to mess with it in fear of rippin his skin off. After a couple trail side breaks we chose to take 710s what a really nice trail that is. Is't like the podunk (sp) trail in NEK waterford. That trail was long but nice. I'll tell ya backpack hangs on to CK like trailer hooked to a truck (she can ride) took 7c 100 back to the haulers. Never did (woopford) before but it's not woopford there was a lot of good riding in that area. We did 127mi. not sure 1/4miledave chime in. By the end of a weekend day ALL TRAILS are beatup. I'm tellin ya I had a great day and made a few friends,thanks for a great day I'll be back!!!!!

Must have fueled his sled up with the hot dog juice from the jar of dirty water dogs at Jenks! That is truly a burndown!

Nice, did you folks make it up to Glastenbury peak? That is some bad luck with the Ski-Doo. Not surprising however, last year when I started mine up gasoline came rushing out of a leak at the fuel filter like a fire hose, luckily I was in the shop at the time.

Thanks for the report!

I never ended up riding saturday. Woke up at o-dark-thirty with a stomach bug. Felt like the flu. Went back to bed and woke up around 9:00am.

Keith,

You have go to get her a sled. She looks like a natural. What about a nice Polaris INDY 600 SP with Estart & reverse?

We parked next to A-Z in the public lot, it was a great day for riding and there were not as many riders out there as I expected, I doubt the lot ever got 1/2 full. Met VTsnowman at A-Z I guess he is the owner ? His shop is spotless, and he had tma's and woodford maps.

440 and I thought we might ride till 1 or so, it was dark when we got back, good time and trails. I stopped at the Royal Diner on rt9 for some chow on my way home, and it was a great local place.

Took my 2up, wanted to give it a run before taking it to IP, ran great, hot light can on a time or 2, but went right backout. 440 was riding his xc , and MB was on his cat, Keith's new piece is a cool sled, has one big problem though, everytime I saw him in motion, the skis were in the air ,huh , lol, what a surprise. We stopped often and had a great time, Keith's daughter is a sweetheart always positive and has a smile on her face.

We all fueled up at Jenks, MB took 7.5 gallons in the cat, I took 7 in my 2up 700 , 440 took 6.4 in his 700 xc, and Keith won the mileage contest and only took 5.1 , that conservative riding style is paying big savings LOL Guess that shows how much better new sleds are.

That 710 trail is a narrow groomed trail and says so on the map, it was fun, reminded me of the old days, a foot more snowand it would be double the fun.

Great opener for the season, had plenty of laughs with HCS'rs CK,MB,and 440 Thanks to All

I had 123 miles

Dave

To get to the peak, there is a beaver pond you go over according to A-Z that was not frozen last check. After thinking about it, I think it is a one way trail? and the pond is on the way up part. he said some were going up the back way, we did not.

The pics tell the story on the burned up sled, 2011 800 ski doo, nothin left, hope his burn isn't too bad

get better Mike

We ran into the guy with the burnt up doo around 1:00..they were covering up what was left of the sled with snow, I told him that fish and game were at Airport Road checking registrations about 5 miles south of the scene. Sure hope they notified them because when we passed the wreck it was completely buried with snow and a major trail hazard !!
