Yep. Last two weeks in August so as to accommodate those who want to end up at the Skibum Soiree.

Quoted for posterity. I didn't see anything in Canuman's reply that warranted a response like that. JoMomma is in the basement - we don't need attitudes like that here in Regionals.

Almost...

I looked at a nice DR650 yesterday. I hesitated and lost. My mighty KLR250 will just have to do. I must admit I feel a little like this now:

I've been browsing through Patrick O'Flaherty's Come Near At Your Peril: A Visitor's Guide to the Island of Newfoundland.

It's a frikkin' hoot, and packed with good advice. For example, on food:

The general rule is: if you come here with a cholesterol problem, you will be sent home in a casket.

Car Maintenance:

You will probably get a flat tire during your stay here. Do you know how to change a tire? If you don't, learn how to do so.

Nightlife:

You will see. . .squat, barn-like structures , sometimes unpainted, set in a gravel pit and called "lounges." These are taverns; too often, they are foul-smelling places, dark and dismal to be avoided by the sensible visitor who wants to stay out of trouble.

A good read.

O'Flaherty sounds like a good read!
I've found that immersing yourself in unfamiliar cultures can sometimes get you a fat lip, but never have I regretted it. Experiencing the nuances of the local flavor of the region is what it's all about. I could spend the entire trip in a 50 square mile area and still not drink in enough.

I'd like to get the titles of the other books you're reading too.

I'll drop it off when I'm done, Tom. I also have a few others that are good reading. Can't wait to get up there!

We'll have our own entertainment nights. A good campfire, perhaps a couple of adult beverages. You won't end up with a black eye, a tattoo, and something the wife would rather not know about. I don't know if you've ever done a good ol' Canadian Pub Crawl. I had my hand in a bit of kayak smuggling some years ago while I was raft guiding. A lady from Sherbrooke, PQ asked me to bring a boat across the border for her. Not only was the boat half the price in the US, she avoided about 20% Provincial and Federal tax.

To show her gratitude, she took me out on the town in Sherbrooke. This was when the Canadian dollar was worth about 65 cents US. I don't know if i did the math correctly, but things were inexpensive up north. I awoke to a very dry mouth, a splitting headache, and an enormous bar bill. It's not cheap to drink north of 45.

Newfoundland Cellular Providers

I just picked up a perfectly good Iphone G3S from an inmate for $100 in perfect shape with a new battery. I'm sure it will be a valuable addition to my modern lifestyle. I'm looking to get a Canadian SIM card for it. So far as I can see, Bell is the strongest provider for The Rock?
