Playing solo is pretty rough, primarily when the weed stems are far from base or they are all chopped down nearby. A sled like the one in The Forest would be really useful for building. I don't care if its made with sprigs, webs, stems, acorn, or strapped on the back of a Ladybug, if I can move more than 8 pieces of materials all together that is a great addition.
I am looking into getting a first sled, I am uninformed when it comes to reliability so I did the only thing I could think to do. Come to reddit. I’ve been looking at a used Ski Doo GSX 600 ETEC with 3500 miles on it for 5,500$ (CAD) the winter in Canada seem to keep me stuck in the house, so I need something to get me excited about snow. Can someone tell me the issues of this sled? What sleds are reliable for around 5500$? And the potential running cost of ownership. Thank you!
Now that we have tundra villages, I think sleds pulled by dogs would be great transportation. A “mush” stick would be used to control the direction and speed, and the sled can go up/down one block automatically according to the terrain. The sled could be made with wood and iron ingots in a crafting table, and the harness for the dog could be made of leather. Add the ability to add a chest to your sled for storage, and a lantern for light. What do you all think?
I found a 95 Polaris 580 xlt for sale on Facebook marketplace. Seller wants $500, I could probably talk him down. Needs coil packs and exhaust. Would this be a good buy for a beginner sled? I’m okay at tinkering and can fix stuff so tinkering won’t be too much of an issue. Looking for opinions of this is a good buy or if I should save my money and keep looking
I am a total novice and have never snowmobiled, but I did grow up on dirt bikes/atvs and rode motorcycles so I'm not new to this stuff, but I know snowmobiling is totally different.
I have family that is hardcore into it and they all ride ski doos, and I just missed an opportunity to buy a mint condition 2011 mxz 600 with 2000 miles for $4000 from my cousin, but the friend he sold it to is selling his great condition 2007 ski doo rev 600 blizzard edition with 6400 miles on it for $3000. I can possibly talk him down a little bit but not much.
For a first machine, it's pretty hard to pass up that deal (good condition, I know he maintains his toys, local - I'm from RI so not too many sleds for sale here at the moment). But at the same time, it's a 13 year old machine and everyone else is riding newer ones so it almost makes as much sense to buy a newer one for slightly more money. Going into this I had a budget of around $4500 for a sled, excluding gear, but I'm a little torn on wha... keep reading on reddit ➡
First time poster here so trying my best to observe the rules. I have (2) BOXX renderboxx 10400 sleds that I semi-rebuilt. All 4 have 16gb ram, dual XEON 5650 CPUs, 6 cores each with h/t. They all have Windows 7 licenses but since machine is wiped and SSDs are new, it has to be reinstalled, but was a super cinch on the first 3. All 4 sleds POST.
I believe this to be a great bargain considering their compute power is still pretty relevant, but you have to have the space for them as well as a tolerance for the noise. I realize this could be a long shot but for the right buyer these things book it with core-intensive processes and are rock solid.
I used 3 of the sleds as part of a V-Ray swarm set up for a company and sold them to them when I left. I just recently got around to finishing the last 2 sleds to use as sim-racing servers but found a different prospect. To be clear each sled has 2 identical units.
They clocked in at under 2:05 in V-Ray Benchmark 1, which puts it in the ballpa... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've heard that the Native Americans greatly feared the dogs brought by the Spanish conquistadores because they did not have dogs themselves--they only had access to Chihuahua-like animals. But, given that the Inuit people DID have access to dogs, why did their use never travel south considering how incredibly useful they would have been.
My parents have been working on an online store for years now and have finally gotten everything set up. They've been putting a bunch of stuff up on the site though there's not a ton up there yet because it's new. Not going to link it (I'm not here to advertise, nor do I think that'd be ethical) but I am proud of them because they've been working on it for a while. I decided to check it out today out of curiosity and I noticed one of the items they've put up is a sled...that belongs to me...with my initials in big letters on the front.
Now, I am not super attached to that sled but my parents also didn't buy that sled for me. It was given to me at a Christmas party I went to as a kid. I only used it twice in the end because I got super scared and felt uncomfortable going downhill on it. Honestly, I probably would have sold it myself in a garage sale or something when I moved out. What bothers me is that they didn't consult me about it at all. I wasn't asked if they could sell it on th... keep reading on reddit ➡
It saves a lot of time.
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but it confuses me. How does a the bolt sled prime the plunger? Like how does the sled reach the plunger and pull it back? How does that whole mechanism function?
I am considering getting a new snowmobile to replace my 2007 polaris 550 supersport. I am a late 50's rider and looking to get something nice to enhance the riding experience. Most of my riding is trailering to location in the midwest US, about 2-3 hours. I envision going more with the new sled, 6-12 days a year.
I am thinking about a Skidoo Renegade enduro, either a 600 or 850. I have it on my bucket list to go outwest snowmobiling sometime. Part of the decision to go with that sled would be amortizing the cost of not having to rent if I went out west. Would this sled, either the 600 or the 850, be suitable? If I would go out west with it, would clutch/gearing modifications need to be made? For riding in the midwest why would I go with either the 600 or the 850. I do not need to go 60+ MPH.
I am going to look at 3 sleds this weekend to buy for the upcoming season. I mostly will be using it to haul around my ice fishing hut toboggan and riding trails.
My options local to me are: (prices in canadian)
2013 polaris switchback pro r 600 with 7500 miles $4200. (From a dealership) 2008 Skidoo renegade 800r with a new engine and 6k on the body for $3300 2010 polaris switchback 800 with 6k miles for $3200
I know the 800 polaris have their issues with the engines seizing but not sure if this model year is affected. (Friend had a 2013 sba 800 that seized 5 km after he bought it). Brother had a similar issue with a 2012 sb adventure 800.
I've never ridden a skidoo and am coming from a 2001 polaris xc 800.
Any advice between these 3?
I'm 5'5" (female) and I wanted the scrambler for long time and now have fallen in love with the Desert Sled. Am I way too short for the bike? Is it impossible?
How hard is it to join the Sirius Dog Sled Patrol? As in, what do they look for and do a lot of people even apply to join? It just seems weird wanting to spend six months in the middle of nowhere in the snow with one other person, some dogs, and wild animals.
I just moved to a small town and the gym I go to now doesn't have a sled push, even if it did, it's pretty small so it wouldn't have space for it. I'm looking for other workouts I can replace Sled Push with, which would y'all recommend? All help is appreciated.
Does anyone know if this method can make the longshot bolt sled take a k25? http://nerfhaven.com/forums/topic/15921-longshot-bolt-sled-reinforcement/
This would be so useful when you want to carry more than 8 planks or logs. The recipe could consist of 4 or 5 logs, 10 ropes, and 10 sprig. I imagine it would look like a long sled with rope loops attached at the front that you would wear like a backpack. The sled might hold 10 to 15 planks. I would also imagine you could still use your hands to allow you to carry the usual 8 items. Assuming you have the ant gear equipped. To prevent this from being "overpowered" it might be worth considering making it impossible to sprint while using it. You would also need to make sure your sled has a clear path. You wouldn't want the sled to be able to pass through pebbles and grass and such. I think that would add a real pros and cons situation.
In nexus blitz, you can dismount the battle sled by pressing your recall button or whatever your recall button is bind to.
how fast would a 80's sled that is 340 cc go?
