Hi guys,

Just my 2 cents: Have you considered going through Dixville Notch in NE Vermont and crossing into Canada at Canaan. It's a small border crossing and usually there aren't many hassles with boarder patrol. From there head north on 253 and then the 108 just before East Angus up to highway 73. Then stay the night in Quebec city and be sure to visit the old part of the city (oldest city in North America, circa 1604). From Quebec city to Forrestville, it's aprox. 5 hours (without stops)on the 138N along the St-Lawrence Seaway.
Being from Quebec, I can assure you that it's a beautiful ride.

Well, I sort of neglected this thread with all the spring-has-sprung festivities! Nonetheless, preparations quietly continue in the background. I've got new chain and sprockets on order, new set of brake pads already here, and enough supplies for the next 3 oil changes

My OCD/paranoia is just about silenced. I have my "FEDEX" emergency fly box completed. That box would be the new stator, instructions for install, the specialized tools and new gasket packed. I'll leave it with the house sitter to mail overnight.

PS Love the Giant Nickel!

Not sure how detailed you guys got with your fuel planning, but I made an Excel file to plan for how much I'll need. The mileages on the upper left corner don't mean too much, as they were just for me to approximate the time needed for the trip. Camp spots were just arbitrarily chosen mileages. The distances between gas stops are approximated, but within 5-10 miles of actual distance. My route is going to be Northeast PA to Matagami up James Bay Rd to Radisson to James Bay to Radisson To Trans Taiga Rd to James Bay Rd to North Rd to Chibougamau to Northeast PA... Just to give you an idea of how I figured mileages and whatnot. Hope this can be of use to yas.

Have you seen this thread?

think I might have to have this - especially if he can keep the price under $500 as he says

I would be all over that, but they won't work with the Jesse cases. Come to think about it, the Jesses currently don't even work with the OEM case tank

Nice document! Thanks for sharing. Alas, we are coming from the East via dirt , so probably only have a little bit of overlap between the two itineraries.

Well, my trip this year has just been cancelled on account of breaking my leg today. Make sure that you guys write one hell of a ride report so that I can live vicariously through you! Looks like this trip will have to wait until next year for me. :(
