I filled up the groomer, grabbed some trail signs and then I was off on the trail, There was lot's of trees and saplings to push out of the way as the wet snow from a few weeks ago had brought them down in the trail. I made it to the groomer turn around where the Dubreuilville and Wawa clubs meet, there was plenty of snow for packing and the trail looked great. I headed back home and took some pictures and video for you guys. The day was going well until the last 7kms to town, as I was going down a hill my right side track locked up and I instantly stopped the groomer knowing something was wrong, as I stepped out and I saw the problem, I had blown a small tire. I must of have hit a branch or something, as I had not hit any rock. With the tire going flat made the track go up and the cleats hit the tandem pivot and that was making the track lock up.
After looking at the problem I could not do anything, so I called for some help, I needed some body to come pick me up, I had to walk over half a km mostly up hill and in soft snow, I walked to a unplowed logging road where Dan came and picked me up, lucky for me he was able to reach me from there. As of last night the groomer is still parked on the trail waiting to be fixed.
A cold December morning, Looking at the temperature before heading to start the groomer, it got down more then -32C that morning
