Old Forge, NY Report

Well we got precipitation yesterday but not in the form that we needed it to be.  The R started just after I posted the report and it never changed over to snow like it was predicted to do.  One of the guests that checked out today has a neat system for hauling his sled.  I'm sure some of you have seen them before but there isn't much else to report on. Here is a link to the site for it  www.liftallandtoyrack.com

Here's Today's Video......

  3. Z1turbo....Thurs, and Fri. might be brutal, but just bring a couple cans of white spray paint up and spray your face shield a little, and maybe some ear plugs so you don't hear the rocks and pavement you will be hammering. Kind of like riding home in the dark after some soda pops.....What you can't see or hear happening to your sled, won't hurt as bad.

    1. Hey dude, let this winter tell its own story. If ground is frozen, that feb 1st could buy weeks of fun.

    2. I can't say for sure how it would be. But I would think that it would be slime picking.

  13. It's bad - like real bad! I feel awful as this was to be a great weekend up in Inlet. I hope the hockey tourney still goes off and I still may even come up Thursday-Monday to at least put my stickers on my sled and hang out. Outside shot of squeezing in my first ride of the season on Monday I suppose?? The Zippy ride (well the actual ride part) is all but cooked Joe, but I know you'll have fun with the other social parts of the weekend, I'm sure of that at least....sorry man! The 0-1" dusting occurring right now is nothing. I still can't imagine this Fri. 1/27 & Sat. 1/28 it may rain due to 30+ temps. I mean WTF?? I would have bet a lot against these highs this late into the season......UGH

    T.T.

  14. You people act like you are the only ones that cant riide we are all in the same boat this year. No one has control over mother nature if we did I would have it snow 6 months out of the year! We all have to wait and see what she has in store for us. Stop whining!

    1. Well it's all gonna be starting from scratch on 1/26 after 32 and mostly sunny on Thursday! That's not a common or welcomed site for late Jan. I'm still hoping for a sick 3 week run of great riding from 2/9 on.....that's my best guess and my hope at least!!!

  19. I wanted to let everyone know that Rick "Scooter" from Scooters in Forestport, NY passed away yesterday. Scoot was a good person and bar owner, he will be missed.

    He invented the "funky" wing -so popular in Mohawk Valley when he owned South Trenton Pub.

  20. Hey Rat from the River..Take a chill pill and relaaaax..Many of us are getting through this terrible season with sarcasm but I chose humor at this point. As a regular at Christys I'd be there every 10 days if I could spending money but mother nature won't let me. I'd be glad to join a bowling league if you loan me one of your shirts and a pair of your sunday church shoes...punk...

  25. I agree, let's just head up north and enjoy the hockey tournament, spend some money at the local businesses, and be thankful for all that Steve does. I apologize for getting SB fired up, but I am sick of negative comments about something that is beyond our control. Keep dancing!
