Well the tire holds just fine when in the gravel today. With knowing the work involved to fix the direction of it.....I'm just going to leave it.

As far as the Fire Extinguishers go. They work great. Most of my bottles are a little too small, so I added some spacers to make the straps tighter. They should hold now with no problems.

Brian showed me a plastic container that he had laying around, and it looks like a good canidate to put on the back. Basically It will take the place of the yellow bag without adding much new weight. If I don't like it then I can always just chuck it on the side of the road and go back to the old way. This will definately look more organized.

The panniers are working great. Now that I have the faster release I like them even more. Not so sure how the new top plastic one will work out, but I'm willing to give it a try.

We all went for a day trip today to the highest tides in the world. They were really cool. You have to walk down stairs so you can walk on the sea floor. Over a 6 hours period or so the water goes up around 40 feet or so. We got there a few hours after low tide, and left about 2-3 hours later. There wasn’t all that much to do there other than wait for the tide to come in, so we didn’t stay the whole time. Well enough with the story, lets have some pics.











This kid fell somewhere in the mud. He was covered in the stuff and was kind of crying over it. It was pretty funny. Its all fun and games until you slip and get messy. Its just mud so what does it matter??? He sure didn’t like it though.

Hey Dave!

Just got caught back up with your RR. Looks like your still plugging along and haveing a good time. Linda and I just returned from a 10 day, self-guided, dual-sport, (lots of) dirt roads, trip through Central Mexico (and I didn't even get sick this time ). Good luck on your continued travels and be careful - they don't drive the same in those "foreign countries", ya know.

Keep on going.....

Take care.

Todd and Linda (Houston)

Fritz,

PM me details (I do not have your number anymore). Let me know what your group expects. I'm sure we can put something interesting together.

high tides

That place with the cliff and tides is an extremely cool looking spot. Exactly where is it? (if you said, I missed it - sorry). Good to see the trip going well. Ride safe!!

Grandpa's Birthday

Hey long lost nephew...looks like you're going through some beautiful country and seeing some amazing sights. Just wanted to remind you that Saturday is Grandpa's birthday. We're going to your Mom's at noonish to celebrate his and Rachel Rachel's birthday. Uncle Kevin will be coming down too. It wold be nice if you'd call him to wish him a happy 79th. I told him he was going to be a stone's throw away from 80 and he told me it was more like 365 pebbles away. Then he thought about it and said a small stone sounds better than 365 pebbles.Keep updating the map. The last map was smaller or something and harder for my old eyes to read. Can you make it the same (larger) like you did before, or is that a big fat hassle?

XOXOXO,

Aunt Kathie

Those would be the Hopewell Rocks on the Eastern coast of Canada between Moncton and Saint John. Went there on the way to our honeymoon in Nova Scotia.

Um, I'll try with the map thing...



I'm currently on the ferry to New Foundland. Caught the 2am one so I could get there in the morning. The plan now is to head strait north up the west coast to the viking settlement. Then hop another ferry over to Labrador. Head west across the Trans Labrador Highway and on into Qubec. I'm not real sure when I will have the internet again to do a RR or much less anything. I'm using the ferry's internet and computer right now, so no pics. I should be down into Qubec within 1.5 - 2 weeks or so if all goes well. Maybe I'm underestimating the distances again, but who cares. I'm enjoyin every minute of it. From what I hear the moose and black bear population out number the human population 3 to 1 on the island.

Take it all in, Dave!
I've heard about how cool Newfoundland and Labrador can be (well, you know that). Enjoy!
