  • Whatís going on?

    I have always come on this site for the most up to date news and Info, but for a while now there is neither. I just had a text from a friend that showed some sleds frozen in ice with a Sledfreak logo photo shoped across the pic.... I couldnít find it here anywhere..... asked him about it and he said itís all over Facebook... again.. there are still people not on Facebook and come here for info... but it seems this site has become null and void.... donít know why Sledfreak is posting info on Facebook but Not on their own site.... just seems like if we are going to give this site any kind of hope we need to make it more of a priority.

    I understand the frustration and see the changes as Fbook growth takes over. The old days we used Craigslist or Forums to sell Sleds but now Facebook Marketplace is where I went to look for good used sled. I don't have a Fbook account but my wife does so I used it to purchase 2 sleds. I would love to see more posts on Freaks site I only hope someday the information we want is in a thread on sledfreak forum.

      I stopped wondering whats up with this site a long time ago. The admins NEVER update any trail conditions or snow totals like they use to back when DDD was around. This site is basically a place to buy sledfreak apparel.

      I also refuse to join the Facebook crowd as I am not interested in others knowing my business. Therefore I check in here often but then its off to another forum where there is activity.

      I tried to offer advice to promote business/activity a handful of times but it seems to go on deaf ears as we all sit and watch this site on a steady decline in activity.

      Anybody post trail reports anymore?

        Unfortunately, Facebook has been taking away traffic from message boards. "The admins" of a board like this simply can not keep up with trail and snow conditions because they are not making enough money off advertising on the board for it to pay them to spend all their time checking on trail conditions. A board like this only works if the members post information.

            Unfortunately this site is directing traffic to Facebook also.. its the bandwagon and why people walk around with their phones in their faces...

                    I just signed on for the first time in a year. I don't visit forum sites that much anymore. I get all my news, weather, trail reports, etc off of Facebook. Personally, I love it.

                        Or if Admins think outside the box... Try posting Facebook info on here for the non face bookers and maybe that will boost member participation... Here to help

                          Trail reports other than posting trails closed , hazards etc. are kind of worthless . If your reading posts on line then by the time you hit the trails the conditions have changed . Seen to many times someone posts trails are great and then when someone else rides them they are beat and then a pi$$in match ensues . So pretty much assume they were all groomed through the night . The early bird gets the worm !

                              Teet beside QR that has riders posting important trail news, FB is it, get on or get left behind. Things will not go back to .com when you can get everything you need in one place. Privacy can be set anyway you want.

                              Perfect!

                              Sometimes, it is OK for things to be less than OK. We have, in our minds, an unrealistic expectation.
                              We think everything ought to be perfect. If it isn't, we figure we must be doing something wrong.
                              But we live on a planet where nothing is without fault. Nothing.... and nobody !
                              What counts, in the end, is not how you manage to make things right.
                              It's how you manage to live with the fact that some things will always be a bit wrong.
