Season is starting, so let s open a new thread on the topic.
Julie-Ann Chapman had already started posting ride reports.

On a personal side, we planning to take a lot of time off to go explore the pemby icecap/hurley in january with a buddy. The goal is to go snow camping/hut up there, ski some sweet lines and have fun. We are really experienced in the backcountry but still pretty green (2 season so far) with the sleds (one M7, one M8). We ll be looking for guys to join us as we quickly found it that is way safer to get a larger crew when going deep with sleds. Post here or PM me if you are interested.

Have fun, be safe.

C'mon Rat, don't sell yourself short. You just need a newer machine and you'll keep up just fine. The new machines really have come a long way compared to your 2011 XP. Don't get me wrong, that sled of yours is still an awesome reliable sled that will take you places in the right condition but not the easiest when you want to get to tighter places.
