Just read a post that all Saskatchewan snowmobile trails are closing. No riding allowed because members are removing signs and closing trails down.

 

This virus is a real deal shut down. Even our past time is effected with this stay inside... social distancing Order. 

 

Massive lay offs. People wondering how they will make there mortgage payments and vehicle payments. Scary times for all. :o

 

The wife bought me some cross country skis. We have been given her hell around the yard on those thing this last two weeks. Thank God i can still get out of the house and do something...

Only thing I remember about Saskatchewan is you can watch your dog run away for 2 days it's so flat..

How has this virus impacted Canada?  We are getting no reports of how widespread it is there.

They have left our trails alone but closed down the warm up shelters, they say its a good way to get out side while keeping your distance from others.

The people at the Gas stations are most at risk, all hotels and resturants closed , no where to go unless sledders bring it with them.

Its a safety thing because even if shelters are closed, people still break in to them..Volunteers don"t what to risk our lives..

As of today over 2k infected 24 deaths, hopefully all the social distancing measures will start to pay off.

This pandemic has hit the hardest in Ontario as of right now....... Stay safe and keep your distance for you as well as your family and friends.

everyone completely understands this we are in a fairly rural setting and for many in the area a ride means leaving from home for a day ride. no one should be having any dealing with the general public at large, I never thought I would see the day come where I wear my nitrile gloves to gas up but here it is. Eveybody out there stay safe and use a bit of common sense to keep our at risk population protected

Common sense is worth a penny and we are billions in debt.

Two weeks ago we had restrictions on the number of people in a warm up shack. But that was kind of silly. Still runny noses and touching everything. Best to just do what they did. Get this virus contained and try and get back to somewhat normal again.

This is funny and I'm from MB which is as flat!  I understood the importance of hand washing before the virus, it took the rest of you this long to jump on board.  Lol  Helps to be a germ freak in times like this!

 

Trails have been closed in MB for two weeks.  Short riding season again for us.
