Trip out

As far a trip out there, I plan on taking the slow route, leaving Saturday or Sunday before and riding through the US. GerryT and BigDaddy are coming along, but we haven't sorted out he plans. Anyone else interested?

I'll hurry back in a straight line on the highway afterwards.

Updated IN list

I'm possibly in.

If GerryT is going, it won't be the slow route.....

Thinking of leaving on the Saturday. Maybe up Gaspe, cut through interior to visit Perce rock, visit the lighthouse on Miscue Island, a cruise across Pei then up to Meatcove for the Thursday. A coastal cruise, low daily mileage, pubs , camping, early mornings, off the bike late afternoon..

Like everyone else the ride home is going to have to be long days as I have to be back at work on the Monday.

Would be happy to have folks join if this sounds like your kinda thing

Hey Scott, add me to the IN list. I'll be camping as well

I plan to take a route very similar to the trip I did in 2010. Check my ride report in my sig.

This is way premature for me, but if I have a bike capable of travelling such distances by that time, I am tentatively in. If I am able to make it, I will be camping.
