drcool memorial ride planning thread

Over the weekend of July 5 this year some of us plan on trekking out to Cape Breton for a memorial for Dave and to mark the one year anniversary of the accident. His family will be there and many of his friends have expressed a desire to do something like this when we were all together last summer.

It is a busy time in the area so places to stay are booking up quickly. Pixellman and I are planning on camping at Meat Cove, which was our original destination last January 5th, and think it would be a good idea to book as much of the group as is interested in there together. With that in mind, please chime in here as soon as possible if you plan on joining us.

edited to add:

The idea is to be out there together on 7/5. The means of getting there and back as well as duration will like vary for each of us. Those details can be worked out in groups and discussed in this thread.

Updated post to add that the idea is to be out there together on 7/5. How we get there and back will likely vary for many of us, but details and ideas can be discussed in this thread. Figure that from the GTA its 2 days each way by direct route.
