Mission acomplished!

That's the point!

Great report and you had the adventure you were looking for, right?! Thanks for the ride I had a great time.

Overall, I'd give you an A. You've read many trips here, I'm sure, where all hell breaks lose. But we want our adventures to grow with our experience and our skill. Trips like these are for learning about ourselves, our bike, planning, what can do and what we can't do and what we'll do in the future. You did it, you didn't get killed or injured which can easliy happen without fault. That's makes this trip well done.

Learn the lessons... have another one... repeat!

That was one great ride---and the report was very well done and the pictures were excellent-----From one who lives out here and has rode many of those same trails. Well done!

thanks for the time and work of sharing your trip with us. To me, that's the hardest part of any trip is the picture sorting, writing and then, internet work of sharing a trip. Never worry about other people's idea of a trip.
Do your own ;-) .

Great pictures and your writting style had me reading every word of your RR. Lots of details that really brings the reader along with you.

It requires a lot of thought (and time) to put one of these together!

In my book, you did a great job.

Great RR. I enjoyed it very much. I see you passed by my place by about 1/2 mile when comming back into Canada. To bad I didn't know, we might have hooked up and I could have taken you to a great place for breakfast. It might have cut into your arrival time in Montreal though.
I'm sure you feel youv'e accomplished a great deal with this ride.

1 You did it!.
2. Youv'e written a great RR that I and others have enjoyed and learned from.
3. I think youv'e expanded your horizons on what us old FF's can do.

Well Done.
