Headed out for a ride......

Traffic has been light all day.  Forecast is calling for snow the next few days.  So slip on those dancing shoes and get those feet a moving.  Not much else is going on.  I'm heading out in a few for a ride.  Not sure where we are headed to yet.  I'll be able to give you more info on what I see later.

Today's Video for..............

    1. Looks like Pete's Peak off trail # 4.
      Sometimes a bumpy trip up when it is not groomed.
      Best view in OF.

  5. ScottyB, why don't you get your head out of where the sun don't shine and spare us the weather report (Mon thread). If it were on paper it wouldn't be worth toilet paper. We all have places we look to for weather, and weather underground is probably the worst for OF. Any weather person with a brain knows even 48 - 24 hours in OF is far from certain let alone 4 days. So, smoke your weather pipe, but spare us the dreams.

  6. @ 10:43 - If you dont have anything nice to say...well you know the saying..People who read this blog can filter out what they want. To your point, we can all read the forecasts and distill what we want from them..regardless of the "source". However, what purpose does it serve to bash someone for being hopeful? People can choose to believe it or not..most of us have been around long enough to know weather forecasters get paid lots of money to be right half the time...and with a winter with little snow..we can all afford to be hopeful..no point in going through life with a chip on our shoulder..

    1. As I recall the intended purpose of this blog was to share information, ask questions and such. Wasting space with pipe dream forecasts is right up there with what happened on 12/22/12. So, get a grip 7:47 & 8:19, and you are right 8:19 you are a jerk.

  8. Well 10:43 is just upset cause all the people on this blog are either un denial, or a fountain of crap they pulled out if their ass. Its annoying when people post garbage that isnt true. Most post are just that. Not true.

  9. Of course traffic is light. No one in their right mind would take off of work to go to OF to ride in terrible conditions during the week.

  11. It's really sad that I used to love coming to this site and reading all the positive feedback. Now all it is is negativity! All the hard work Steve does, and there are people out there that want to ruin it for everyone. Stop complaining and post somewhere else. There are people that love Old Forge, and look forward to getting up there on the weekends!

  13. Ya know, I've been following this blog for a few years, and always enjoyed the jolly, innocent pokes from fellow snowmobilers at one another. This blog was used for information, up to date reports, peoples funny and not so funny experiences while visiting OF, and so on..... This mess however is shameful. Most of you probably don't even realize that there are alot of people who used to comment on this blog on a daily basis, that don't any longer. WHY IS THAT, PEOPLE?!

  14. Steve, In an effort to weed out the bad eggs on this blog, there is software you can purchase that will record IP addresses. That way you can have the ability to block that IP address to your site. In other words, block that computer. It also will give you owner name etc.

    Its well worth the small cost.

  15. Its true, If you go to Of only go on the weekend fri sat, leave early sun. They do not groom during the week, restaurants always closed, seems like the town dosent exist mon-thur. Ive been going to OF for 12years always went during the mid week WHOW you definetly dont want to be there on a tue/wed place is a ghost town:) IF things dont get better soon Ill have to sell my lake front cottage on 4th :( , and buy a cabin on TUG hill just off plumer road. Where the snow is "always" great no bumps, ruts ,mogals snirt etc If I were you Id only ride the hill where real a.......s go! see ya

    1. Above is a tool that is just as "honest" as the real obama. OF will be a better place if he will go to the tug. I'm starting to think tug stands for Touchy Ugly Group.

  16. Yeah go to Tug Hill where you ride 6 foot moguls all day and all the clubs fight with one another. Your prolly one of the guys that ride back and forth from Montague to Flat Rock all weekend. 4 Foot of snow on the Hill means Chiropractor appt on Monday. Oh yeah and good luck finding a groomer on "The Hill" on a Saturday. The Town Of Webb guys do a hell of job with the snow they have to work with.

  18. Rode the hill the other day! Started in Highmarket and went to Oceola where 18" had fallen. Have had sore back all week compared to Old Forge. The 2 groomers in Oceola were a nice treat. Here's the deal. The groomers on the hill rarely come out during the day. They're out between 6-12 at night. Here is why - they want you to spend your afternoons in the taverns. I have been told this by reliable sources. If the Tavern owners felt otherwise, you would see the groomers out all day. Major scam. Stay in Old Forge and be safe!

    1. What a load of garbage. Where did you get that crap from? Jersey and Long Island is gonna get 1-3 inches of snow. Gonna be all rain genius. Old Forge is gonna get between 1-2 FEET of snow. And what rain next week? The light FREEZING rain they are calling for? LOL Boy I just love the morons on this blog feeding nothing but bogus information.

    2. Brodude I think you got alot of it WRONG. Jersey is getting about 10 to 14" and Boston and New England 2ft.. Oldforge is like 2 to 4" on this Costal Storm..

  20. This is'nt a "compare Tug Hill to Old Forge thing" but, a friend rode Tug Hill for the last two days and said it was 70% moguls. Rough riding and there was enough snow to groom, but they were'nt grooming. He's a Tug Hill rider, but is tired of rough conditions and is ready to try Old Forge.
