It's hard to believe that this...
taken from the same spot..
Looks like somebody moved a few rocks.
I'm sorry. I feel for your loss.
So....Ron...where is the pic of your bike in the SNOW?
Ron,is the sign still up that says "no through route" ?That sign keeps a lot of people off the Snake rd.
I took the truck for this run, if that spot was still like it was, there
was no way I'd get through with the bike on snow.
We barely go through with no snow last time.
I wouldn't have minded taking the bike on the dirt part, but there's
40 km of Trans Canada to get to the turn off, and the "new Canadian"
truckers scare the shit out of me.
Anyway there'll be plenty of ttime for "bike in the snow" pics when I do a little ride with Paul Molnor in January.
Hecto, there's a new sign at this end saying that the bridge is out at
kilometer 61, but it certainly isn't.
Ditto on the "New Canadian Truckers". I drive to Calgary weekly, and I've seen my share of wrecks.
Haggis for all
Job security we call it.
Coming back from Wpg on Nov 6th (remember the snowstorm?). Took 2.5 hrs to get to Prawda from the peg. Anyway, get to Prawda and all the truckers are pulled in there kind of waiting it out. Except one fella had lost it about 2 mi before he got there. I could see his tracks inthe snow. Walk into the station at Prawda and sure enuf there is "new type" trucker there walking around in his barefeet, sandals propped up against a rad drying out.
I mentioned that we were having quite a sandstorm huh
This is a side view of what I believe to be the same location.It shows the large amount of material used to fill in.How many truckloads?I saw a brand new feller-buncher parked on the side of the road just before here,so new it still had the "sheath bar" across the saw on the falling head.Machine is worth almost $400 thou. When the contractors are spending the $ on road work and new gear like this,you can bet Ole' Canada is going to get a serious "haircut" in this area.Probably see some new routes open up in the next few years.Also last year I saw a huge pile of pipe culverts on the northern route past Minaki,many new roads will be up there over the next while.
This is the machine that provides the "haircuts".It can do the work of 10 men with chainsaws.
Yep, that would be the spot Kari!
RedRyder, I got stuck in Kenora for several hours during that
snowstorm, when several "New Canadians" had a collision in it.
I don't know how they get a license.
I rode it the other day...kinda sloppy though, with a mix of mud, ice, and snow.
