As long as they all start with "so there I was..."

Got my days screwed up. Saturday is a ride, sunday is the FD supper. I have a lever here for your sherpa. It might be waiting for you when you get back from camp...

Maybe. not sure. Yellaknife might be able to do a ride. Might go check out the roads/trails around Squirreltown - look on google earf, it's a maze of roads back there! Tried to Ping Slowphil, but he won't answer his texts - he's too hollywood now.

Well going for a ride tomorrow.

Changed the oil, and changed the brake fluid on the bike. I've also been constantly messing with the carb, and I think I've got it this time. I've had 6 different main jets in it, and this should be the last one I try - 138 main Dynojet, KLX needle, 2nd clip, and fuel screw out 2 turns...we'll see.

route logged in to OruxMaps for android. Have the backcountry mapbook, bike is half loaded up, just have to throw the little cooler in, some water, and maybe swimtrunks and a towel.

Meeting SlowPhil at the fourth reich, New Germany. Seriously.

from there we will ride up to Squirreltown. Seriously...these are real places.

We'll meet Yellowknife and the big grey pig at squirreltown, and we're going to do a loop around a few lakes on some roads I've mapped out.

We plan to cook lunch over a fire, and just enjoy the day. Hopefully get a swim in somewhere back there too.

Los Cabelleros de Mui Rapido:



I left my home on the south shore, late as usual, to meet SlowPhil in New Germany. nothing eventful happened - I didn't even take any pictures. From there, Philly and I headed up Highway 10 to meet Yellowknife at or near squirreltown, but seeing how we were late to the rendezvous point, I told Yelly to just start heading this way.

We met up in Springfield, and then headed to Squirreltown…Which brings me to the first pic I took today. (DAMHIK! – I’m supposed to be getting better at taking pics while on a ride.

Philly and Yelly on the bridge:




This is actually a tributary of the Shannon river system – I’ve been flyfishing here in the spring, before the bugs really come out, and the fish are hungry sumbitches.



The water was sure a lot lower than it usually is, evident on the rocks


Anyway, Onward!

I noticed on Google earth that there is a loop you can do, around Scragg Lake, past Birchbark Lake, and then between little sucker and big sucker lake, ending back on the #10 highway, or on to the railbed trail.

We stopped at the edge of Scragg Lake and cooked a proper lunch. SlowPhil and Yellowknife had steak sandwiches, and I had steak and baked potatoes on my KLRista Grill. You can see the grill in the pic. I made a cup of coffee, while Phil had a hard time keeping his clothes on for some reason – never try to reason with a man strung out on moonshine.





From there, we went down a road that had a sign saying the bridge was out. Cool – I didn’t know there was a bridge!

Turns out the bridge is not out, just in a state of disrepair. We found a bunch of ATV people, not sure of the bridge. “Let me at it” I said.

I went over like nothing.


Then some stupid John Deere thing.


Then Phil:




And finally Yellowknife, stressing the limits of said bridge with the Big Grey Pig:


Easy…


Phew! Made it


On our way out to the road, I went through a series of whoops, and heard a loud KA-TUNG, and felt like I had hit something in the front. My forks seemed to be sagging, and were really soft. Shit – I think I broke a fork spring.

I tried to take some pics of the sag, but it doesn’t sag until you get on it. I have about 2” on front suspension travel until bottom out. Oops.

The fork boots are usually tight:


Oh well, ONWARD!

Wait, holy shit is that a snake eating a frog?


Yep. He actually got the whole thing down and then slithered off in to the woods. Yellowknife got video of the departure, and I hope he’ll post a link here.



I’ve never seen a frog like that before. Weird.

Well from there we decided to slab it in to Bridgewater and get a coffee.

Then we thought, since it was such a perfect day, why not head down to the Beach?

Crescent Beach, is the only beach in Nova Scotia that it is legal to drive on. We drove on the beach.




This happened a lot today:


Yellowknife on the beach:


Yellowknife and Slowphil


Uhh, oops. We’re kind of making a shit-ton of non-beach noise…at someone’s wedding. Oops – sorry.



And me:


Um, okay, look, an Osprey with a fish. Neat.



After that, we decided we’d had a full day, so I led the guys out of the beach, and we headed back. Since this is my stomping grounds, I turned off for home, and the other two were headed back up highway 10.

Good day today – Thanks for coming out guys!

Another Fun Day in Nova Scotia

I have videos but they no load on photobucket so it is just pictures of the carnivore snake. It was a bad day for frogs and fish it seems.

Phil couldn't watch the frog being eaten but I have it on Video if he ever wants to relive it. Will work on posting it up asap. The frog pleaded for us to rescue him but I wouldn't stop videoing to help it. I asked the snake if frogs tasted like chicken but his mouth was full so he couldn't answer.

Steak ala Slow Phil for lunch was great but no starbucks to wash it down with. Bloody heathens I tell ya! I tried calling BMW for an airdrop but I kept getting a busy signal.

For anyone else who may ride with this band of hooligans be forewarned. The insults and ribbing never end. Thanks for the mental health ride Guys - I needed this ride badly.

You can pay a therapist 200/hr to talk about your problems, or you can go for a ride with your friends. Anytime buddy.







Btw, you owe phil $875 for lunch, and my fee came to just under $1800 for leading the session today. Sorry, no cheques, only crisp unmarked plastic bills.
