Flash out of date

Keep getting the "Flash out-of-date" across the top of this website. My flash is fully up to date, so it must be a site issue.

Re: Saturday Dec 9th, Chena Lakes to Pleasant Valley

Did you make it across the river? I've been out there a couple of times and didn't want to attempt it by myself. I did see a set of tracks going across, but they broke through on both sides. I did just ride around going to Nordale and going across the bridge, then back on the trails to get back up i...

Re: Skandic Wide Track

I've not been able to get anything out of the Troopers of what the outcome was. I went out on the 3rd and it was still there, however, I was able to get a trailer that I could tow it on and went back out on the 4th and it looked like someone drove it away. (no sled marks, no sign of struggle to put ...

Skandic Wide Track

I found a Skandik Wide Track, probably 2011-2012 model, out along the Tanana on the 31st. It was covered with snow from the snow storm and the key was still in it. The E-start turns over, but it didn't start. My guess is that it ran out of gas. I've called the Troopers on it and haven't received any...

Re: BILL THAT WOULD HAVE RAISED SNOWMACHINE FEES DIES

I think so, if the funds are not going to trails, then the registration needs to go away.

What was the states allotment of the funds in previous years? $$ amount.

I'm wondering if it could be raised in other ways. GoFundMe type thing.

Re: BILL THAT WOULD HAVE RAISED SNOWMACHINE FEES DIES

If we could be assured that at least 80% of the money was actually going to trails, I would be all for it. My fear would be that 80% would go to administration and 10% would go to "special projects", leaving just 10% for trails. $20 per year for trail upkeep? Sure, I wouldn't mind. I pay more than t...

Re: Once again Juneau want our dividend

okay, so here's a serious question. State of Alaska revenues have dropped dramatically and the government is making huge cuts already. One of the largest layoffs in the history of UAA/UAF is happening. We probably won't see the full effects for another year or two as buildings need maintenance. The ...

Re: 1995 Polaris rear suspension springs

I have a couple of complete skids that may have the right ones on them. I can't recall which skids they were. Pre Xtra-10 though.

Thought I had pictures, but must of deleted them.

Re: Nordale Pull out

I crossed the Chena several places, but did see lots of open water. I'm curious of the trail that connects chena lakes area to the Chena Hot Springs trail system. I'm referring to the one that you follow the dike all the way to the end and then there is a trail that continues next to that bluff. Abo...

Re: Chena Lakes from Plack Rd

I'm hoping that if a gate is installed, it is not in-line with the road, but rather off to the north side for trail access. This would help keep the noise and traffic down from the road in front of the house that is right there on the corner.

Re: Chena Lakes from Plack Rd

thanks, I can't talk to them anymore. They'd probably give me a ticket for standing in their sunshine.

I really get the feeling that the budget cuts are forcing them to justify their existence by writing tickets to anyone that even looks at the flood control project wrong.

Re: Chena Lakes from Plack Rd

I'm not talking about the Pipeline access. This is the end of the Plack Road. aka, back entry to Chena Lakes. I've lived out off Plack road for 15 years and they've always allowed snowmachines through there. A few years ago they put up a fence and post to keep the trucks out and they put a NO ATV si...

Re: Chena Lakes from Plack Rd

My guess is they buckled down on blocking the ATVs out and just not moved anything out of the way yet. They may not move it. There were a lot of 4 wheelers ignoring the signs. Personally, I'd like to see them allow 4 wheelers on that side of the lake (west side) and just put road blocks around the s...

Chena Lakes from Plack Rd

Anyone know why they've blocked off the Plack Road access to Chena Lakes?

Someone has already made a trail around the road block, but it is kind of a tight trail.

My understanding is there are non-snowmobile trails, but the majority of the trails are open, along with the lakes.
