So - I'm still mending, but a fellow inmate lent me his Ural to ride to a funeral of a fellow rider Sunday.

I've been riding it around to get used to how it handles. I gotta tell you though - its nice to be on a bike again.

I wish I had one of my own to join you FFs.

I went for a ride with a couple of guys on Urals a week ago. They look like a blast; I had a hard time keeping up on the double track stuff.

But I fared better in the water crossings.

I just discovered this thread today, and read about 13 pages in before giving up and skipping to the last.

What have you decided in terms of dates? Three of us on KLR's will be spending a couple of days riding around Red Indian Lake and doing the Gaff Topsails in early August.

Looks like the last two weeks of August. I've arranged for my son to be with my mom then.

8GV and his bud Garth stopped by the Palace of the People this morning on their way back to the Soft South of New England. With our combined dictatorial powers. and representing almost a quorum, we agreed that we'd like to be on Marine Atlantic for the night crossing August 15th. That's a Thursday, which would put us on The Rock Friday morning. Hopefully before the crowds mass on the roads, we'll be on the T'railway and pointed north.

If this doesn't work for anyone (I am thinking of Applicant225 in particular,) we will be equipped with the most modern of communications equipment, including signalling mirrors and semaphore flags. We can arrange a meeting somewhere along the track.

Who's with us?

8GV and I made ferry reservations for the 23:45 crossing August 15th. Cabins are sold out, unfortunately, but we're on the waiting list.

Someone (Dresda, I think?) mentioned a field where one could park the van and and trailer in North Sydney. Can you provide more info?

C-Stain, can you PM your address?

You have a PM.

Did you get the email from a few weeks ago?

I may not have. My phone was out for two weeks, and the internet has been dodgy.
