Some of the lakes are still ice covered up here and I've seen about 7 ice bergs floating around. Going to spend the rest of the week working my way east to St. John's then next week meat cove and bay of fundy on the way to bar harbor to meet the family.

Going to try and slow down some this week. I road from manic 5 to goose bay in one day to stay ahead of some weather, but that was too much.

It beautiful country up here. Photos don't do it justice.

Cool... Have Fun

Pics don't do justice but we still want to see! Nothing wrong with a warm bed and a hot shower every few days. Keep having a great trip friend.

ADV phone app

Guys

I heard that there is an ADV phone app. I have a google android phone and noticed that there are a couple of apps which could be for ADV. Is the rumor true that one exists and if so, would someone lead me to the correct app. Thanks

Took my GS up Signal Knob on Sunday morning. I have hiked that trail before but never rode it. Who knew it was open all the way to the top?! COming down was a bit squirely with a fully loaded GS on Shinkos but I made it. Some nice streams to ford as well





Also had a nice 9 mi hike up and around Overall Run/Beecher Ridge in SNP




I dedicate this one to the ladies

You ride through Fort Valley, turn on Boyer Rd then a right onto F66. The map shows the road going to the Strasburg Reservoir but it was open all they way up to the antennas up top!
