If your leader answers to the name of Bungie for all that is holy DON'T follow him. You will end up in Alaska.

I think a guided tour to Alaska sounds great and only $100

I think guided might be to strong of a word. But hey, it's all just perception.

'Fitter is just jealous because I get lost big, he gets lost in parking lots on Vancouver Island.

Is everyone set for rooms or have space for one more?

Anyone need a ride from Toronto?

I am never lost though sometimes I have misplaced my destination nor was I leading when we turned into the parking lot in Ottawa. Are you still going on safari in North Carolina in search of your imaginary road at EOM this year??

You did turn into the strip mall on the way to Tofino only to do a U-Turn and back out on the hwy in the right direction. Just because your GPS says to turn doesn't make it so. Believe me, I know.

and ya, that imaginary road is on my hit list. Funny thing, we were oh so close. If you click on the panoramio pic, the photographer tells you EXACTLY where it is.

I'll take a pic of my bike on that road just for you. But I won't tell you exactly where it is because I'm good that way.

To answer your question... Bungie and I got a room at the motor inn. Unlike the Orgy that Yamafitter has going on at the Lodge across the street.

I'm all set for transportation.

'Fitter? Late for supper?!

Why do you think I never found 'the road' at EOM a few years ago. It was 4pm and 'Fitters stomach took over.

I was a little offended that the room at the Inn was described as 'two queens'.

Meh. So long as nobody whispers "Hold me closer tiny dancer" I'm good with it.

Thanks for the cable for the GPS. Puts my mind at ease. Ordered up a cradle and 1.75G Rotopax from DualSportsPlus just a couple of minutes ago. I figure that the odds of 'Fitters bike running out of gas, I ought to be able to sell that 2G for about $20 a liter on the trail.

Between him and Pam on our trip to Utah I never had to worry about going hungry.

Hey there dual sport riding ladies,

The Calabogie Boogie is a great place to come and have an interesting, scenic ride. I have been participating in the Boogie, with helping design the scenic routes and with pre-riding for the last four Boogies. Lots of guys come out and join us, but it sure would be great to have some more women participate too! (No offense to the guys out there. Your company is good, too.) Lunches are fantastic and so is the banquet. This year's guest speaker is a famous, lady enduro rider, Toni Sharpless. Hope to see you next weekend. Go to OFTR or BMA website to register.
Take care.

Heather
Chair of the 2013 Calabogie Boogie.

P.S. I don't know about the rest of you who have already registered, but I can hardly wait until next weekend! There better be awesome weather!!(please do your sun dances, people)
