You just cant get any better than a ride on a day like today.  Its personal riding time now, tours are slowed to a trickle albeit I have no idea why.  April is my favorite month and hardly a machine to be seen!  We have more snow than we have had all winter…by far!  We did have an excellent tour on Saturday with two families (one group).  What a great day to be out and conditions could not be better!  Right after the tour Jack (my son who just turned 8 on the BRP Freestyle ) turned around and headed back to the Monica cabin for the night…so on this post there are pictures from two trips.  Over the weekend we saw many caribou.  They are spread all around now from 9-mile right on down through Peace Valley.  Jack and I spent the day winding around the hills between the trees and looking for jumps.  Its not like you would expect riding with an 8 year old would be though.  I did not have to look back often as he rarely got stuck….always behind me, and I never held back too much with choosing difficult lines.  He rolled once, caught a tree on a side hill and fell into a brook after hitting a jump (which took well over an hour to get out).  Riding this past few days has been such a pleasure with the warm sun and not being stuck every 15 minutes in deep powder.  The snow in the trees, as always, is still soft and deep so when you do get stuck….well, you are good and stuck!   For all of you who have grass on your lawn and sleds put away, not only on the East Coast but closer to central, I feel for you.  I don’t know if it is that you don’t know what you are missing with spring riding, that you don’t realize winter Central and West lasts til the end of April and beyond, or the grass showing has you thinking about golfing instead of riding but you are missing the best time of year.  Winter here in Newfoundland is 4 months not 3.  I’d say I will burn two more drums of gas yet.  Make no wonder I get two years max out of a sled!  I am really enjoying this old time winter!
