What a beautiful day today. The lake water is finally receding and we almost have a lawn agajn. We are still not able to put out the dock but soon.
Our quests this weekend are boating and fishing (one caught a nice 17 inch trout last night) and since our trails opened yesterday, many are out enjoying the ATV trails.
Of course, we are also remembering those lost while serving our country. God bless.
I should write Winter madness 2016 as this has been one odd winter 😕 It will snow 2-4 inches and then 2 days later rain; temperatures at a minus 20 then back to 30 the next day; and even odder is when it was 38 one day, it snowed then down to 10 degrees and it rained. Shall I continue with the oddities or do you get the point:?: One crazy winter.
Last week, we got about 4 inches of snow in town with reports of about 10 inches northeast of us. Then of course, everyone wanted to come and ride. I think town was beyond full this weekend. Today, we did get about 2 more inches of that white fluffy goodness. Then we heard some rain on Tuesday but more snow on Friday ❓
Throughout this crazy weather, we have kept an excellent base so any added snow has offered decent riding all winter. Nothing like our usual but for those who want to ride, we had the opportunities.
We wonder what the rest of March will bring. Forecasters are saying temperatures up to the 40s, some rain and some snow. HMMMM that sounds familiar. 😮
SO hopefully, this El Nino will go away and we will get back to having those awful winter seasons we love in 2017 😀
These guys, new to the area are having a great time on the trails. “So much to see and becoming a fast favorite”. Even the dog, Rocky likes to ride 🙂
We have had so much rain this past week but today, it is 75, the skies are clear and the sun is shining. 😀 WHAHOO ❗ As you can see though, the lake is till really high. I am glad I did not put our little solar lights out too far yet.
ATV trail update from our riders this weekend… Mark said that there are so many little creeks and babbling waters out there that he has never seen before that it made it worth the ride. Some areas were muddy but they found some great areas to ride. He also found an area just south of here where Mom and baby Moose were having some fun in a bog. Hopefully this sunshine will help dry out the trails and lower our lakes!
Back in June, I added a post regarding a video done by Destination Polaris. If you have not seen it yet on the Discover channel, you can also check it out on this U-tube link at www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjJkse7RXZ8
Riding in Jackman is always a lot of fun. Sometimes you come home covered in DUST and wishing you did not forget your goggles (when it has not rained) and sometimes you come home covered in Mud, wishing you wore rain gear (after a rain).
Wonder which is better ❓
Good news for ATV riders ❗ The ATV trails in Jackman will be opening early this year. Instead of Memorial Weekend, they will be ready to ride on May 15th…that is this weekend. 🙂 YAHOO ❗ ❗ SO come on up. Don-t forget,you do not have to trailer out when you stay at here at Cozy Cove Cabins. You can access the trail system from your cabin 😀
Mark and Laurie have been snowmobiling in Jackman for years and always make the ride up to Pittston Farm. This year, they discovered Jackman in July and are hooked on all the other fun things to do in the region when there is no snow. The ATV trail opened to Pittston Farm in late July so they had to come back a second time this summer. They wanted to see Pittston Farm without the snow and of course, have lunch on the porch. “What a difference”
Usually, at this time of year, everyone is talking about the ATV Jamboree sponsored by the Border Riders Club. This year, they are not having a full on Jamboree but will sponsor a full day ride to Pittston Farm on September 19th starting at 9am from the clubhouse. Contact the Club for details.
Snowmobilers have benefited from having a trail to Pittston Farm for years Great stopping place to have lunch and fill up. Incredible scenery along the way too. This summer, a state gate was moved allowing us to connect our ATV trails to Pitts6ton farm. By ATV, this is about a 60 mile ride so come prepared. Should be lots of fun for all!
Even though the last post I said I hope it would rain, I hope that it does not during the day tomorrow.
he Border Riders Club is sponsoring their annual ATV Rodeo at the clubhouse. Already, lots of quads in town.
Then tomorrow night is the Bucky Lewis Comedy show at Hillcrest sponsored by the Jackman Region Chamber of Commerce. Bucky was here in February and although it is definitely an adult show, we laughed the whole night. This time, we will be able to have some spirits along with the show 🙂
Fun-filled day ❗
