Support the Groomer guy Blog and videos

If you enjoy my blog, my videos, my facebook page, my articles and stories you can help me out by helping get new video equipment for shooting my videos. Making videos is a long and expensive hobby. I recently bought my first Gopro camera and now I need some accessories to go with it. I need camera mounts, Chargers, batteries and lot's of batteries as the cold eats them up fast. I need a microphone, cleaning supplies and more. Later on I would like to get additional cameras so I can have different camera angles.

If you are interested in helping you can email me at and I can send you a list of equipment I need. I will forward my mailing address.

You can go to my Amazon Wish List and see What I currently need. Click on the link to go to the website.

you can go to this link to see the list of stuff I need, every item has a link that takes you to a Online store.

Information About Dubreuilville snowmobiling

Since many of you are emailing me about snowmobiling in Dubreuilville I decided to do a post about Information about questions  you guys are asking.

Dubreuilville Pop 900

Nestled in the heart of the Magpie Forest, Dubreuilville is easily accessible by car or by train. Approximate travel time from Sault Ste. Marie by automobile is 3.5 hours 45 minutes drive from Wawa) while it is a 5 hours train ride through the breathtaking Agawa Canyon on the Algoma Central Railway"s world famous Snow train, you can unload you sled in Dubreuilville. You can also reach Dubreuilville from Western Ontario. Dubreuilville is approximately a 5 hours drive east of Thunder Bay. Dubreuilville is located at the end of Hwy 519 east off the Trans-Canada Highway.

In the winter, the snowmobiling experience cannot be matched. Our Local Snowmobile club maintains  350+ kilometers (220 miles) of groomed trails amid the beautiful Magpie forest. Dubreuilville has some great off trail ridding (Boondocking areas) that provide the opportunity for each snowmobiler to stay in Dubreuilville for an extended period with something new to see and do every day.

Annually, we are one of the first snowmobile clubs to open our snowmobile trails to the public and one of the last to close them.  The reason for this is because most of our trails run on logging roads   In existence since 1968, the Alouettes Snowmobile Club of Dubreuilville works together to ensure some of the best snowmobiling in Ontario! With approximately 2000 hours of volunteer work or more every year committed to the club, people care about your experience in the region. The Alouettes are members of  the Algoma Sno-Plan Affiliation (ASPA) Dstrict 13  and Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC).

Looking to enjoy the great outdoors in winter but want to go at a slightly slower pace? You can have it all in Dubreuilville! Why not go cross-country skiing! We have 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) of cross-country skiing trails to offer enthusiasts that are groomed by devoted local volunteers.

 The fishing is great in Dubreuilville, try your hand at ice fishing on the Magpie River or one of the many lakes located in the area. Perhaps lady luck will be smiling on you when you are pulling the next big catch. Maybe you are in the mood to simply snowshoe or take a walk through the forest and spot some of our wildlife. How much you want to experience is all up to you!

In order to visualize what lies in the heart of the Boreal Forest, here are some important facts:
