Brian, are you there now?

How is the dock for parking my plane in case I decide to fly in my supplies so I don't have to haul them on my bike? Google Earth shows a dock at the shore, but I don't know how suitable it is. A sandy beach is fine too.

I plan to ride my bike in on Friday and leave Sunday morning. Looking forward to seeing all you old FFs again and meeting some new ones.

Rick, are planning on building a log home to stay on for the weekend. I know an having trouble packing my camping gear, but I don't need to fly it in !!!!
If you were to bring some extra fusing gear a long for a fly in, I would good with that.
Looking forward to the Rally, only two more sleeps until we leave Winnipeg.

Fusing gear?

I'm always looking for excuses to go flying or fishing so making the short flight to the camp seems like a good idea right now. Walleye season opens this weekend too. I would take some good aerial pics of the camp for Dan.

I am well on my way...

Spending to night at the "No Tell Motel" (Nipigon) in deference to the fact I am travelling to the NoFAR... I didn't want to stay anywhere which might be construed as "frilly"...and I promise to follow suit with my selection of nightwear...

Since I am unable to attend and I am sure everyone else will be too busy bending their elbows to type, make sure you keep the posts of trips coming! At least I can follow the trip from my home and office! Thanks Lee.

OK Whyswoman, I can cope with the nightwear; just be careful with the Night Moves

it might be an idea to pack a few gallons of your favorite bug dope.....

I got everyone covered in the coffee cup department....even to allow for 10% breakage..

....after you pass the gate, the road into the camp will be marked with surveyors flagging tape...if the tape blows off...keep to the right at the fork at the bottom of the hill..

... this will all make sense when you see it..

I made it!!!!

I successfully completed my solo run to The Soo, and was met just outside the city by my Piffle Partner...He and I have opted for a night at the HoJo...for some advance jollification in happy anticipation of the NoFAR...


Now get your minds out of the gutter...advance jollification, to us, means we are side by side, playing on our 'puters, before we have to go off the grid in Echo Bay...

Looking forward to watching all you slow pokes roll in over the next few days...
