Guys, I just bought 5 acres of remote recreational property between Willow and Talkeetna 15 miles west of the Parks hwy. From talking to the neighbor it is about a 25 mile ride each way from where he parks, maybe Deshka Landing. I'm looking at ordering a new 2011 Ski-Doo for next years outings to the property. I hear that the trails are good that we'll be using to transit to the property, and that I'll have to transit the Deshka river some to get out to the property. I've never had a sled, but am considering a 2011 Ski-Doo Expedition 2 seater w/ the 550F engine. This model is like a grand touring model w/ a 16" wide track and a longer track than a touting sled, bigger flotation on the skis etc. I'll be using it to haul some freight in the winter. I'll probably have a cabin built on my property so I'll just need to do the finishing etc. The WT and SWT are out of my budget and I need a 2 seater for me and the wife. Next year probably buy another sled so we can each take one of our boys.
Another sled I like is the Bearcat 570XT I believe it too has 2 seats and has a 20" track.
If you guys have any good info on a sled for me please let me know.
Thanks Billy Jack
