Prison Weekend Pass Granted

My work has been kind enough to give the time off to come for the ride. I will be off from the 17th to the 23rd.

Now I have to convince my Parole Officer (wife) to grant a "Leave the Province Pass".

I Should be good to go but my wifes sister is in palative care and I may need to pass on a moments notice.

Greg & Carl is there still room in truck and trailer for me? If not I will load it on my truck and see you guys out there.

NORTHERN RIDER, I am looking forward to meeting you and all the rest of the gang that will be showing up.

O.K looks like we will have some guys show up for this. EXCELLENT.
I ONLY HAVE ONE WORRY. i need some guys to help out with some ride planning. i did not ride much this summer and in the spring only rode in NORTHERN MN,so i have no idea where to go for some good gravel roads.

ONLY 3 WEEKS TO GO

I'm off to Minneapolis,MN all next weekend to pick up my new bike ( new to me, but very used) another 1993 Africa Twin. i might bring that one to the rally.

Ride Planning

I will be happy to guide a trip into the Nipigon, Cameron Falls Area...should be about a 4 hour run from your cabin and a back.
This trip would be 70% slab....

something has come up on my end and as it sits right now I have to work all day on Sat the 19th
Unless something changes I won't be able to make it.
Really wanted to meet up with you westerners.
I'm not one to change plans ussually, probably cause I don't do much planning
but it's out of my control this time.
sorry guys.
Gord

Ya, I'm self employed though, so Hopefully I can afford an old KLR then

Ron, when are they letting you out of the salt mine ?

Let me know, maybe we can meet up in T.Bay on the Wednesday.... I am going to head down earlier and get some riding in.

Looks like there are no other guys from Manitoba are going to make it so I can leave pretty well anytime.

I'll be in Wednesday evening...should be off the plane at about 8:00 PM.
I'll have to pick up my bike in Murrillo after that. Steve will give me a ride out.

My cell will be back in service as soon as the plane lands.
