Day 2 we went south east and checked out Hotel Sacacomie which we had seen on one of the sledding TV shows.  Upscale place, very nice supposedly sled friendly but that seemed like a little bit of a stretch considering they made you park sleds and sled trailers a couple hundred yards from the entrance.  Lots of tour groups leave from this place.  Speaking of tour groups, during the week we say several groups of 8-10 double up sleds riding right down the center of the trail - including the guide himself. I guess they think the bigger danger is having the riders get pulled in by the soft snow, but it was equally dangerous having them in the center of the trail.

 

After Sacacomie we went south and had lunch at a microbrewery in St Alexis Des Monts called Microbrasserie Nouvelle-France.  Awesome food and probably beer too but I didn't try any.20200113_133203.jpg

 

Riding home on 63 is when things got interesting. I think we were just west of Lac-Lassale.  We're riding along the trail and we start seeing tire tracks. Not truck tire tracks but more like small car tracks.  They are skidding from side to side on the trail. A quarter mile later we come across this:

Two guys from Montreal had left the bar and followed their GPS onto the sled trail. They made it several miles before discovering their error and the tracks we saw was them backing up down the trail. Where they ended up in the ditch was where they tried to turn around. When we got there a groomer was turning around - drag and all - so that he could pull them out.  What followed was a pretty funny couple of miles watching the groomer pull this old Honda CRV backwards down the trail.  Bouncing from ditch to ditch and tree to tree. I am surprised the chain held.  There must have been substantial damage done to the car. The driver would occasionally toot his horn as if to say "ok we're free now and you're destroying my car can we stop now?"  But the groomer operator had seen enough and he kept dragging them.  When we got to the bar I saw the operator hand the driver a piece of paper which I am betting was a bill of some sort. Here are a couple of videos.

    BTW: Amsoil is good for everything, including making french fries. It's perfect in every regard and even tastes great.
    In fact: Re-using Amsoil containers to store Walmart oil gives the cheaper oil special properties not available to the average consumer.

I never thought that chain would hold and pull those guys. Groomer operator was one of the best operators I’ve seen in a machine. Took out many small trees but got turned around Austin Powers style and pulled those guys out. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long long time.

I gave these two guys in the CRV the names of Cheech and Chong. I think they were up in smoke before they headed down the trail.
