Next adventure gelling

Dinner was good and now I am ready for the next adventure....James bay and the Trans Taiga. I figure we should be able to this in about 10/11 days, so for me about 56 hours of leave required or 24 credit hours and 32 hours of leave.

Calling RFlagg42....I was reading a ride report on the Trans Taiga and thought this may be something you might be interested in, seems like kind of a crazy adventure so I am definitely in.

When I was up at Radisson a few weeks ago and was talking with one of the helicopter pilots(who's also is bush pilot and rider), for Whapchiwem Helicopters Limited with a base in the town, and the guy mentioned the ultimate Northern loop would be to ride the Trans Taiga road and then charter an Air Saguenay Otter or twin Otter, depend on how many bikes, and ferry over to Schefferville where you could fuel up heavy and ride the railroad tracks down to Esker where there is a perfectly good road to Churchill Falls that they used heavily during the hydro plant's construction.

I need to focus on and survive this ride first. Besides, do you think its a good idea for me to drive on the wrong side of the road?

So, lemmie get this right--you eat a Mountain House and then dream up another two trips? That might be the most expensive dinner E.V.E.R!

Dave-Did you get your new plate yet? Hopefully, you didn't get "No Tags"

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow...000913724.html

Quote:
The issue? Each time a car without proper identification is cited for a violation, a DMV employee enters "NO TAGS" into their paperwork. Because White's vanity plate is registered with the District of Columbia's DMV, his name and vehicle appear in the computer's system whenever a "NO TAGS" violation is entered. Notices for the fines are then mailed to White's residence.
