going there soon

Hey there...

The photo of the bucket line handing Dave's stone up to its final spot brought tears to my eyes, and Mrs. Cool's words finished me off...

I will be heading out on an east coast adventure tour, starting on the 18th from Winnipeg, and expect to be doing the Cabot TRail - clockwise this time (Pifflemaster and I did it the other way last summer about 3 weeks after Dave's last ride) - and will be on the lookout for Dave's stone...

Given that I will be riding the other side of the road, and may miss seeing the stone from that position, I am wondering if anyone can post GPS coordinates for the memorial site, so I can make sure to stop and say hello...

Cheers...

Lee

If you're going clockwise, keep an eye out right after Neils Harbor on the right side of the rock ledge about 10' high and before the car park.
Really appreciate you stopping to pay your respects.
Ride safe guys

Thank you for this...now to get them entered into my GPS...doing so with my Zumo is not always a totally intuitive endeavour...

Frustrated by my inability to enter the GPS coordinates on my Zumo, I consulted with the Great and Wise Pifflemaster - who helped me greatly with the following information
The format used by adiablolex is decimal. The default in the Sena is Degrees Minutes, and Seconds, or some such piffle.
See here for a converter.
He then proceeded to tell me the converted coordinates, and they have been programmed into my Zumo for future reference...I have posted the link PiffleMaster sent me in case anyone else is in need of a converter too...

If you go to the memorial ride thread you will see a link to Rumrunner's report that shows what to look for.

Installed my Dr Cool sticker under the windscreen of the GSA yesterday. I am honored to let Dave lead the way for me.

Lead the way he will - those stickers are reflective.

Dave led us home safely as well.
