SMIB's leaving the county...Newfoundland!

Well just getting the page started so, in a nutshell the wife (Dana) riding a 10 F650GS twin and myself (Bruce) riding a 06 Adventure decided to take a little trip to Newfoundland. What really got this all started was a few years I was on my way Iraq to deliver some gear and our C-5 aircraft broke (imagine that) and we had to land in Gander Newfoundland. Well I spent most of a day at the airport waiting on repairs only imagining what I was missing outside. Some time later I thought it would be nice to visit but how to get there I thought. Then comes along my purchase of an Adventure (which Dana was not very happy about ) and the guy selling it shows me a picture of somewhere in Newfoundland of now my bike on the ocean with an iceberg in the background...how cool was that! Well that's pretty much which got this adventure started.
Leaving tomorrow the 14th of August 2010 at sunrise. I hope to take many picture and post as I can. I am also using a SPOT tracker if you care to follow along.
