Why don't we shoot for a 8:00 am meet at Fermor and Lagimodiere at the Robins.

Does that work for the piffle posse?

If any of you Winnipeg riders need anything, let me know...most of you have my phone number.

We can make room for more here (at our house) if needed. (Although it may be a sleeping bag and a couch!)

Can't make any distance hanging out at coffee shops..., so we'll be stopping at Deacon's corner to get fuel AND coffee.
Original plan was to connect with Jonathan at 06:45 then depart Deacon's Corner between 07:30 and 8, fully fueled, coffee mugs brimming and Sena's paired... Also the inevitable clothing and gear adjustments.

Planning on refueling at Falcon Lake for the last of the "cheap" fuel before Ontario.
That should get us to Dryden for more fuel, and sustenance for those that need it.

Northrider had posted he was serving at 18:30, and given the time zone change, I'd like to arrive in time for a wobbly pop before then.
Cheers!

Pretty detailed plan but you forgot to add in the "oh krap I forgot (insert any number of things here) and have to go back home for a minute"

Yup, make plans and watch them evolve... Just got a call from Jonathan and he's unable to ride out with us as he was just notified of a job interview on Thursday. New plan is he'll ride out on Friday...

Sad to hear that Isplat2 and crew won't be able to make it due to a collapsed well and a washed out road.
The only constant is change...

With the number of trips I have made to TBay this year, Brian's initial plan is a good guide line. Dog Lake for 17:30 is pretty reasonable.

MAKING ME GET UP EARLY ON A DAY OFF!!!

Ok Brian I will be there for 7:00 AM. Just fuel and water for me. Coffee just before departure will ensure a Richer "Bio" stop for me.

Trevor I hope this works for you.

Jim, make it 0710 for those few extra minutes of shuteye.
Just heard from Lee that she may be weathered in at Gods Lake this evening, There go the plans again!
I'm still going if she is, and she'll ride on Friday with Jonathan.
Anyway, she's still hopeful.
