It's not that big. However, if you talk dirty, it gets much larger.

Much of the packing job is volume with little weight. I took a lot of fleece gear, as the nights are becoming chilly. We're gonna have a time, I tell you.

Look for the Wolfman Label.

This just in. Inmate Barbsironbutt just pulled into Ontario's Pinery Provincial Park. She was met at the gate by a group of Ontario motorcyclists, who insisted that she accompany them (The Canucks are a family group, including three or more generations on family holiday, so she's in absolutely no danger.) One gal evacuated her tent so Barb didn't have to pitch hers, and can get an early start in the morning.

This sort of courtesy is common in Canada, and it's why I rarely ride south.

They are 'grooming' her now.

Yeah. When she gets back to the States, she'll be a member of an Ontario curling team and have to truck long miles on the 401 to participate. Sinister plot, that. She will have to buy dirty tar sands oil to do it, and the whole game will go down the pan when we get eaten by polar bears. I knew there was something wrong in the picture.

You'll know for sure if she starts sporting a Toque, and saying 'eh' a lot.

And trying to pay for everything with 'Canadian Tire' money.

She's anti-Toque, as she is frizzy Ginger and they don't suit her. She gave me a Timmy's Toque, though. It's in the tank bag.

"Just put on the damned hat."

A toque is not a fashion statement. You don't choose to wear, or not to wear. When it's 40 below, you put on the damn toque. And then when it gets really cold, you're ready.

My point exactly. If your feet are cold, put on a hat.

There was a strained moment when I spoke the aforementioned words to Ms. Barb. It was the wrong choice on my part. I overstepped my bounds. One can't direct redheads much without getting into trouble.

I keep a toque. My Mama didn't raise any fools.

Tim,
Did you mention some well caffeinated tea you plan to bring? I'll need a daily fix.

(But I can quit anytime I want to)

I packed a quantity of Taylor's of Harrowgate Best Yorkshire Tea. Me mate Mike from Liverpuddle, UK sent me a full kilo of the stuff, and it rocks. It will kick-start a corpse, and is a very pleasant drink, to boot. I've packed some of it for myself, but I'd gladly throw a few handfuls in a zip-lock if you have a place to pack it. Space on the bike is narrow enough that I'm literally counting teabags.

You should be along for this one, Jon. Next summer, I really want to do Anticosti. In?
