Backroader,

hope to see you guys at the Mad House Monday evening!

Dryden Rider,

here's a link http://www.thewaterfrontdistrict.ca/...d=71&Itemid=63 Doesn't say a lot about events and times, even the H.O.G. event calendar doesn't say much http://www.thunderbayhog.com/article...details-12.asp

P.S. - You guys are welcome to camp, use the camper, or just dump your stuff off here for the stay. Ron's is a lot closer but I'm not sure what he's up to.

I'll be home Sunday, but have to fly out Monday morning (really early).

Garth , all I know about Ribfest is what it says on the internet.
Hell, I didn't even know we had a Ribfest till a few weeks ago.

Yes, the only problem with that weekend is that we have to leave here by 6:00 am Monday morning. Maybe you could make a visit/stay another time??

Vbr

For all the Canadian people going to the VBR I am bringing a red&white Canadian lawn chair which will mark where the BackRoader's and I will be setting up camp. If arriving after dark look for the Christmas lights. Maybe make a Canadian zone.

Hey Rob, it's like a 30 minute ride from T.Bay... Well not quite, but close enough, though I can't blame you for not wanting to do it... Your epics trip last month was enough to last me for years!! Lol.

See ya Monday.

I'm psyching myself up...or out...to do a little trip...to the highest point in Ontario The time is there but not sure of the money at this point...would also like someone to go with but as usual, if I go, it will more than likely be a solo attempt! In case you don't know the particulars...it's not like going to the Manitoba high point ...here's a link http://www.ontariohighpoints.com/ish...idge-overland/

Any takers?

Why don't you just go up Tower Mountain, and jump in the air? It's way closer!
