On Sunday March 20th,hivernal equinox, here we are, leaving for the trial of the 2011 Arctic Cat Bearcat XT. The whole family is present: my wife and our daughter, who will be experiencing their first ride on a snowmobile this season. At first, my wife was nervous but the comfort on this snowmobile, generously made available by Junior Mécanique Plus, Arctic Cat dealer in Rimouski, will soon make her forget her fears and fully enjoy her ride.
It was a beautiful sunshinny day, 4 or 5 °C. We were heading for the trails that were still in very good conditions, at this time of the season in Rimouski. after a few miles, I stopped regularly to check if everything was fine behind the driver.
We wanted to reach the ski station of Val-Neigette, in Sainte-Blandine, but with a little orientation probleme and we found ourselves riding east for a few kilometers. However, it has not been a terrible mistake because we were riding on very well maintained trails and the civicism shown by the snowmobilers we met, was quite reassuring for my passengers.
Finally, we reached our destination, we took a quick meal and we rode back to Rimouski. What a view on our way home when Rimouski and the Saint Lawrence River (here we call it the Sea) appeared in all their splendour, like if an artist had suddenly painted this scenery.
When we got back, Philippe soucy asked right away about our tour and he seemed very happy with our first comments.
Once home, after taking a bath, the family felt asleep in seconds. A magical day!!! «Dad, I had so much fun. Can we do it again next week-end???»
