Will be heading to Maine to pickup my X on the 19th and hopefully if they don't get any snow spead my holiday week riding the trails in the northern part of the state.

It will be a bit cold but I'm sure it will be worth it. The ATV trails in Maine are open until the first "significant" snowfall then they are closed for the winter snowmobile season.

Any "northerners" out there?

Barbara - Allowed on the road ? SHHHHHH !!!! Actually it was supposed to be on the SIDE of the road while connecting between trails but since that road doesn't have traffic, I stretched things a bit ;) The State Game Wardens are pretty fair in Maine as long as your not being too stupid.

Lance - Thanks for the Kudos on the video. I am not doing anything special, just using Windows Movie Maker and adding the music from my MP3 collection. Have to find something to do when we can't ride ;)

Photography and Videography are hobbies that I plan to turn into a part-time business after I retire (544 days but whos counting?).

If you get a chance check out my website Pelletier Island Photography and let me know what you think. I am always looking for feedback. - John

Cool video! But damn it looks COLD! I thought I was about the only one out there that still listened to MollyHatchet. You need to get that thing down into WV for some riding.

Sorry I took so long to see your post

My grandparents on my fathers side(Paradis) raised 18 children in St.Agatha. My mom's side(Babin) are from Fort Kent.We moved to CT. when I was 5. I love the Valley. I come up to ride snowmobiles every winter. Now I will be coming up to ride the commander. When I picked up my ride at Fort Kent ski-doo I rode to lake view for lunch. It was a cool but clear day and as I ate my lunch I could see Pelletier Island . What a beautiful Lake. DO you still live in the Valley? I hope we can meet. It would be great to ride sometime. I am having a hard time to check out your video. When I go to the link I get some other video. Not sure if I am doing it right. If it is not to much trouble could you link some of your vids. The fellow members seem to really like your work. My son -in -law is at Fullsail in Orlando and he is studying photography and videography and he is an off-road nut. I cant wait to get him up here on the Commander. With his help I will try to post some videos of our rides in the great north woods.Merry Christmas and I hope to hear from you soon
