Steph,

We'll all need warm socks made of wool -- tell us your price!

I could get that Passap stuff up to North Sydney, too!

Good grief! We'd probably already be carting a spinning wheel. That's all we need is knitting machine parts.

You know you want them. I have a fresh set of the unobtainable last-revision EPROMS. You won't get hooked. I know what I've got here.

Reserve early to avoid potential disappointment. Spaces are limited.

I'm in for this one, but not sure I can spend more than five days on the rock. Would love to do some higher ground hiking and maybe visit Burgeo and a remote outport somewhere.

So I'm assuming this is a late August trip. I'll say I'm tentatively in. (All based on Kids rep sports and work scheduling) I have been aching to get back to the rock.
I'll be riding my F800GS and I know how to use it
Dirt should not be a problem as I have had lots of experience plus some motocross race time.

In for at least half the allotted time if not all. I'll know better closer to booking and launch time next year and will cut off some rides this fall to start shifting funds over. I'll wring, I mean bring the WRX as it is comfy enough slabbing or single tracking. A hike in the mix sounds good too Tom.

OK, this is coming together nicely. If anyone has the skills and testicular fortitude to ride something above 650 CCs, I won't balk at it. I know there are some Hell-for-leather big bikers out there n ADV. Welocme G-Mac.

For myself, I found the 400 just fine. I wouldn't expect the smaller bikes to keep up with the big ones on the inevitable slab sections. My DRZ is getting wrung out around 60 mph/100 kph. I would expect everyone to have their own navigational equipment and know how to use it. This would allow us to break into smaller groups according to riding style and ability, and meet at either lunch or the end of the day.

If Jackpiner57 wants to be a SLACKER and just do five days, I suggest that we plan on staying at the Norris Point Hostel either the second or third night. This would give the opportunity to hike Gros Morne, probably catch the section of the Gaff Topsails that we rode in 2013, and do some exploring around Red Indian Lake. I'd suggest the south-eastern side, which we didn't do, as I hear the riding is a bit more interesting down that way.

I'll put together a full package of GPS tracks, as there are some very interesting spur routes that we didn't hit.

If anyone wants to combine all or part of the ride with a Trans-Lab, the Norris Point Hostel would also be a good place to join the group. It's a fairly easy day down from St. Barbe, so long as it isn't raining or blowing too hard. That way, people could attend to showers and laundry, and get a good night's sleep and reorganize a bit.

Sounds good. GPS and skill set have proved good so far this season. Also, I'm a morning person and like to eat, break camp and get on the trail to take in the early morning light and so forth... mixing it up is good too.

I thought you were heading further east? I'm hoping to get to the Burin Peninsula, I want to see where the Truxton and Pollux went aground.
