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 luclevesque@Hotmail.com 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. http://www.amazon.ca/gp/registry/wishlist/ref=nav__gno_listpop_wi?ie=UTF8&requiresSignIn=1

Found old Tucker Sno-Cat Groomer

Last Spring (May 10th) was our snowmobile Club district AGM  (Annual General Meeting)    I was in Bruce Mines all day talking about grooming and snowmobiling and on my way back I stopped and checked out the old Tucker Sno Cat I had seen on the side of the road when I was heading to the meeting the day before.    I was in a hurry to head to Sault Ste marie before night fall so my plan was to stop on my way back on Saturday, I was hopping that is would still be there on my way back.

 The next day I was able to stop and have a look at this old beast,  this machine is nice, has been well kept, it needs a good wash but other then that it's in great shape, the tracks, sprockets, and wheels look in excellent shape, someone has been taking good care of this machine..... I wonder who owns it, I would really like to have a ride in it next winter if possible.  Any one has a clue what year this could be?   I forgot to check inside the door to see the built tag.... D'oh!!!!   Turns out after reading the news that the reason that the machine was  there it was used for logging for the new wind turbines farm near Montreal River Hill.  they must of used the old Tucker to go in and out of the bush while clearing the land last winter.   Now when you drive by that same spot there is a new gravel road going in the forest, they did some big work as they even blasted the rocks to make the road flat  for those big trucks that will come in with the big wind turbine parts.

If you have pictures and videos of old groomers please send them to me I would like to see them and share them with others.  you can email them to luclevesque@hotmail.com


Hope you enjoy the video and pictures I took.
