ADV Relay across the continent

Actual riding content in Jo Momma over the last 24 hrs. Thread here.

Proposal is a relay of sorts, handing off an item in 100 or 200 mile intervals across the country or continent.

Format is still up in the air, whether it be several teams doing cross-continent relays or one huge effort. They are gauging interest and asking people to raise their hand to lead the effort thru their province or state.

I threw my hat in the ring to organize any relays through Saskatchewan, and if any of you are interested, follow the link above and post up your interest and also your province or area (Northern Ontario and the GTA probably warrant their own organizers, for example).

Should be great fun, looks like a freindly wager will be remitted to Baldy at the end.

As long as the timing is convenient, I'm in for a portion of Ontario.

What does the said "item" look like? If she is blond and 105lbs I'll ride her a ways

They are still gauging interest and trying to pull together enough riders. I imagine it will be several different things, with a real-time thread showing pics of the handoffs and all the riders.

Should be lots of fun!

This scheme is being cooked up down in JM, so maybe they'll print 105lb worth of toxic britney posts.

So is anyone else from Ontario interested in this? Basically for the Ontario portion what's needed is a few riders willing to pick up a small item in Winnipeg/Kenora and ferry it to Ottawa/Montreal.

So far only Drif and myself are in. Lots of the province left to cover...

I'm always looking for an excuse to ride...

I'll try to organize MB if no-one else steps up to the plate.

I'm in to help with the Alberta portion. I could ride from Edmonton west to B.C. Let me know what is needed, I'm open to other options.

So we are looking at Windsor to Cornwall as the Ontario route now.

And the relay is likely be for charity. Some are suggesting getting a motorcycle for aid workers. Seems very fitting for an adventure rider charity event.

current route for Western Canada is east from Edmonton, thru Saskatchewan, to Winnipeg, then down to ND and Minnesota.

Organizers West to East: Rob1313 (AB), Grainbelt (SK), humvee (MB), Klay (MN)

Some of the known ADVer's in the area, listed Northwest to Southeast along a possible route:

Rob et.al. in Edmonton
Moving Pictures in PA
Myself, Sask_Pirate among others in Saskatoon
Wayne B in Regina
Prairie Boy in Brandon
Humvee in Wpg

Picturing a handoff from Alberta folks around Meadow lake, (Lloyd being the high-speed slab alternative) Sask contingent moving it southeast to Yorktonish, little help from PrairieBoy and/or trialsandtribulations along the SK/MB border, with humvee taking it to meet the ND/MN contingent.

We'll have a few days to accomplish this, and with the sun being out until 10pm, shouldn't have trouble moving it after working hours if it ends up here midweek. I can always burn a day of vacation if a lengthy section needs to be addressed.

Thoughts re: the above?

Looks good to me. A little straight but good.
