Great, thanks for sharing.
Where's the bit with road into camp.
Three people dropped bikes on that and would love to relive it.

NOt to worry, PM...I think I captured one of my rides up the hill on my Contour...just haven't got around to reviewing it yet...

I enjoyed Klondike 1's video though...

Sorry the video of the road into camp got a water drop on the lens so decided not to put in. Had 12 hours of video to get into just over 5 minutes. Talk about cut and chop.

Looks like a good time was had by all. Well maybe not Northrider
Got out for a ride last Monday. Lots of water around!









You go first













It was a great day for a ride. Unfortunately it has been raining since and the lots of roads and even the Trans Canada hiway were washed out last night.

The Niagra of the North Kakabeka Falls







Be careful on the backroads around Thunder Bay. Lots of culverts out and pieces of road are missing. Almost 6 inches of rain in the last 3 days.

Part I - NoFar Icebreaker Trip Report

Hi Everyone,

I've just finished Part I of my trip report to the 2012 NoFar gathering at Echo Bay, ON.

Hope you enjoy it. I had a great time. Wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks again Dan, Gretta, Scott, and Nancy.

The hyperlinks in the report aren't clickable unless you are a member.

Mike - Based on the following quote from Part 1 of your ride report, I am really, really looking forward to reading Parts 2 and 3 (I am making assumptions here)...
like they have selective right hemisphere cortical damage that prevents them from consciously noticing my other bikes - hemispatial sportbike neglect I believe is the neurodiagnostic term

I seldom get to read ride reports that contain arcane phraseology such as "right hemisphere cortical damage", and "hemispatial sportbike neglect". The frightening thing is that I really can relate to this...Please keep it coming...

Mike, I have enjoyed reading Part One of your ride report - who can help but experience a frisson of pleasure at the delightfully arcane turn of phrase you have employed below?


like they have selective right hemisphere cortical damage that prevents them from consciously noticing my other bikes - hemispatial sportbike neglect I believe is the neurodiagnostic term

I will keep my eyes open for Parts 2, 3 (and dare I say 4?), as I am certain there will be even more arcane wordsmithing to be enjoyed therein...

Cheers

Thanks Whyswoman! Glad you liked it! I was trying to make the trip report as entertaining and informative as possible. It serves as a nice way of documenting the trip for me too - to help me remember and re-experience the adventure (my memory isn't as keen as it used to be) later on. That said - I wish I were a more "naturally gifted" writer. That report took way more hours to complete than I care to divulge. Oh - and I think I only have enough photographs for a Part II. :) I suppose I should have taken more photographs at Dan's place, and then more of us the following day coveting hot chocolate at our rest-stops and freezing our a$$es off out in the rain...ha..ha...

Mike

As it's probably the best, and most cohesive,report I've read on riding the North Shore, why don't you cross post to ride reports in this forum?

( I just got off the plane, can you tell?)

Hey Ron - good to have you back in town! And thanks for the compliment. I just cross-posted Part I of the trip report to the Ride Reports area of the forum.
