looking for a place to call home this winter

Recommended Posts

My wife & I are getting tired of 0 degree high for the day and 10' of snow for the 5 month long winter season. and are looking for a warmer place to spend the winter.  We would need a place with lots of ATV trails and places to put our kayaks in and do some fishing. Shopping malls, etc are NOT even a consideration. as long as we have a gas station and food store, we're good.

we also need to have some "elbow room" without being stuff in with neighbors on all sides.  to put this in perspective we live in Aroostook County, Maine which is about the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined, but with a total population of 70,000 or about 10 people per sq mile.  so we're used to going 30+ miles without seeing anyone except a moose or maybe a bear.

another words, I want to replace the this picture

with these pics.

we would either rent a place for the winter, or buy a travel trailer / toy hauler to live in.

@DaveInME Those are some beautiful photos but the snow is a tough one! The only way to escape that is to go south. I'm in lower NY and the trail riding is limited. I hear out west is the place to go for riding, wilderness, etc.

The riding up here is GREAT.

IF I could just learn to embrace the snow.  Then Snowmobiling is even better, you can ride your sled from the Bangor Maine area 200 - 300 miles uninterrupted east, north or west using the ITS system to a number of border crossing and into Canada, with regular gas, food and motel stops along the way.

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      Hey everyone im new here, i have a problem with my 2001 suzuki quadrunner 500. When i start the bike up it sounds fine but a few seconds later the idle speed just keeps rising to where you cant put it in gear, and if im lucky it will climb down to where i can put it in gear but when i press the gas it immediately want to die. Please help me!

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      I was able to get out for some tracking in-between storms ... we have lots of deep powder and on this ride, it was pretty windy ... of course, it usually is on these ridge tops. It was nice & cool too. The day started of at -7F (-21c) and stayed pretty nippy all day long.
      Hope you enjoy the video !!!
