The coolest thing I've seen today has to be the passenger's FAQ for YTM airport.  It contains this question and answer:

"Q: Could I depart directly from the terminal on a snowmobile?

A: Yes. The provincial snowmobile trail N63 goes through the airport land."

There are very few international airports that can boast that.  And Porter will fly me  there from Toronto Island.  It's almost worth a weekend trip, just to say I've done it.

Many years ago I took a wrong turn in the summer and ended up on a Trans-Quebec snowmobile trail.  Probably trail 23, looking a a map now.  I just couldn't understand why this dirt road was so well signposted but yet so gnarly.  I crawled through it in my old Jeep Cherokee with the transfer case in low range until it finally crossed an actual car road.  Life was so much more exciting when we had no GPS!
