Since you're paranoid about bears, you should read this article:

Don't read stories about bear attacks (people being stalked, eaten alive, etc). It will scare the shit outta you.

Yesterday afternoon I passed a KTM 990 (Ontario plates) fully loaded headed away from Cape Breton. With the three gas jugs strapped down I was thinking he was returning from the TLH. Anyone from here?

I don't know if I've read that article, but I've read the study. I'll let you in on a little secret, OMG_WTF: I'm not actually that worried about bears, I just use that to occupy my mind so I don't think about more realistic fears. Like dying alone. Which I suppose is potentially related.

I was wondering about the sat phone. I'm glad you are bringing one. Thx!

I think you should re-grease the swingarm pivot and the lower shock pivot bearings. They are easy to do when your rear wheel is off. Use a good marine-grade grease. I don't know the particulars of your bike, but you get the idea....

Thanks for the suggestion... I'll tell the doctor. She will get a major service with full light replacements and a rubdown. Maybe she'll even get a happy ending

Yep, still 100% bear-free. That thing about dying alone was a joke, btw-- more of an existential dread, really.
Anyway, I'm still in Newfoundland, taking the ferry up to Labrador tomorrow. A few things I really recommend for those taking the trip-- the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia, and camping at Green Point in Gros Morne park. Get site number 7, if you can. It's self registration and checkout is noon. $15.80 Canadian (why is is never a number I might actually have change for?), no showers, but a restroom, and you're overlooking the ocean and a little fishing village. With WiFi, which is how I'm posting this. Okay, enough dawdling, I got Archaic Maritime people sites to see.

Lance/Anoop,

Sorry for the short notice guys but if you can make it to Panera Bread in La Plata tomorrow morning that would be great. Dana and I have a few items to discuss about the TLH trip. I will be there at 0700 but since we are meeting up with Biker128 at Star Bucks at 0900 you can probably catch us until 0845 at Panera's.

Thanks
