Flin Flon to Cranberry pics
« on: January 03, 2008, 08:55:57 am »
We put the 52 back together for a day trip from Flin Flon to Cranberry.  On Athapap there was some serious pressure ridges that we checked out.  Over 8' high in spots.  No problems on the trip, everything ran smooth.

  Swamp Dawg I wish you had someone travelling in front of you on skidoo with a video camera, when you were going through the trails on that trip from Flin Flon to Cranberry. The trees, the snow, trail & the machine moving through the trail would look just awesome. If anyone has anything like that I'd like to see it.
  I think if someone were on the side of a trail taking a video of the rally with the machines passing by would be awesome. Even add a few highlights of the rally.   
  You could make a few copies & sell them to other members and/or groups & donate proceeds to a worthy cause or local charity.
  Look @ the first picture of your post. A little red bombardier poking its head around the maze of trees. To me sir, that is what it's all about!!!    Wish I were there!!!

Well actually I just finished a little video with just that.  A few inside shots of the trail, a few outside on the trail, night shots, and about half dozen bombs going by at the rally.  I will look into posting it but its really large.

Hey Swamp Dawg I have some video of the trip up to Ted's cabin, going through the trails.  I am trying to find time to clean it up.  Maybe we could exchange some clips.

   Swamp Dwag do you still have that DVD that you took at the rally? And does Houlio still have his? I would like very much to have a copy of them to share with my new found bombardier friends down here on the island. Can you burn off a copy of them?
   I will gladly send you a money order to cover cost of DVD & postal. 
                                                            Thanks,
                                                            The Old Trucker

I'll tell you what OT you can watch in on youtube right after it finishes loading tonight.  If you still want a hard copy I could probably help you out. 8)

Youtube says my video is to large.  I need to figure out how to shrink it, it might take a couple days for my buddy to fix it.

  Dwag, I would realy appreciate it if you could send me a hard copy of yours & Houlio's so I can get a couple of copies taken off & give to the boys down here.
  I was talking to a fellow who just bought a bomber & is thinking about joining NT. He was after looking at this forum & is looking forward getting a lot of info from here to rebuild his.
  I'm looking forward to seeing this site come alive again this fall
It's great to see people help people.

    Just got that CD tonight, Houlio. It's almost my bed time, so I'll have to wait till morning for a look.
    I know what your thinking, it's only early yet, but I'm old & feeble & it is three hrs. later down here.
               
                The Old Trucker thanks you son,

  Houlio my man, I got to know who that woman is in the pic with the fur coat on splattered all over the side of your bomber.
Got any closeups of her. I think I'd leave the wife just to be along side her !!!  Looks like she could use a bit of 'NEET' on her legs though.
  The pic # is 100_0041. Buddy, I gotta tell ya, you got some nice job done to it.

Ha Ha Ha

Hey OT quit staring at my Grandma's Beaver .... coat!! 

Two days ago I uploaded a Video on Youtube and I am just finishing loading two more tonight.  Since you seem to have too much time on your hands I won't tell you where to find them - they should be in the right category and if you use the right words to search with you'll find'em.

Once you find them on Youtube you can reply with a post on NT with what to search for.

Have fun OT
