While we were eating lunch I get a message from Paul (Moosie) who you'll remember rode with us days ealier in Maine but lives in New Brunswick. Paul is inviting us to a lobster boil at his friends camp located near the coastline. Paul knows our route because he helped us with it and knows we will be heading that way in a few days.
Lobster boil eh ?
Even though we are in the woods of NB, thoughts of trip turning from "Turf" to "Surf" are emerging !
Paul gave me the lat & long of the camp.
So with thoughts of Canadien lobsters dancing in our heads we continue the quest.
Another NBDSC member, Rob Wallace had taken the helm in routing us from St. Quentin to Serpentine.


My GPS points me to this logging companies entrance gate.
I dismount to talk to the guard. My minions wait to see what I findout about getting in.


The nice female gaurd (not French) say's "you can't come in here with those bikes, this is companie land". I tell her we are from NJ and this is the way my GPS has me routed and we are headed to Serpentine. "Serpentine" ? she say's. "Thats far off in the middle of nowhere". "you can't get there from here".
Oh yes mam, our friends from NBDSC tell us to go this way.
"Let call my boss" she say's.
ON PHONE WITH BOSS:
"I have a group of men on motorcycles here from New Jersey believe it or not and they say thier friends from New Brunswick Dual Sport Club told them to come this way".
BOSS:
"Let them in"

NBDSC has pull !!!!!!!

And in we go



We ride the main road for around 10 miles or so.




The the GPS is telling me to turn off the main hual road and take this sweet looking 2 track. Obviously closed but I trust Robb's routing and we push on.







On the otherside. Im from NJ and I'm on this little known, 2 track road in NB Canada. GPS says ride it for around 30 miles.
Yea, pinch me.........


Flippin Awesome !





You wouldn't want to have to walk out of here fellas.







Nothing but Moose out here. A real assault on the senses. The smell of the conifers and the forest in general was strong.







After one of the best roads I have ever ridden, we eventually pop out onto this more used dirt road.


We still have some miles to go before we get to Serpentine Lodge.

Nice job Frank!
I met you briefly at the store with the group of Maine riders (I had the yellow F800GS). You've seen cooler parts of Maine than I have and I live here!!
I gotta get out and ride more.

Hey JP !
your section, St. Leanord to St. Quentin was unbelievable ! That combined with Robbs St. Quenten to Serpentine made for an unforgettable day.
Stand by my friend, you make your debut shortly.

Wow, Frank, watching you fellas ride the section from St. Leonard to Serpentine Lodge was kinda surreal. Robb, Dennis and I had prerun that section for y'all only a few weeks before your arrival. Robb was very disappointed to not be able to ride with you. As you know, he tossed his DRZ in the alders a week or so before you landed, and messed up his ACL. I wondered how you fellas made out getting around those old metal gates with those tanks. I concur with Danbo the Atlantic Rambo is saying that you fellas are missed up here. You should come do some sleddin' this winter.

"Danbo the Atlantic Rambo " Love it !

Yea, A huge thank you will come at the end of this RR. I know wanted to meet us and ride with to Serpentine. I was on the phone with the poor bastard almost daily. Hopefully he's getting back to normal for the sled season. Thats was just an awesome route. And the route from Serpentine across the Renous Highway where Paul picked us up and routed us to Blackville was equally as good.
Those section are coming up next ! Complete with washed out bridges
