Some great riding in there - I covered some of that ground on the Orange Crush Rally. Feels incredibly remote and wild.

It makes me excited!!
Bad Roads Rock.
Throw anything extra "fun" at me here and there,
....just don't make me wallow through it all day and I'm likely quite IN!
Hard work is fun....to a point....

Hmmmmm......CRC....Canadian Rally Challenge.....
Five days/nights in the Quebec outback, with an excuse to be there?
I'll start saving my pennies now.
Thanks for the early warning

Shit. I think I pulled an Yank tourist dork move.
I think I confused Quebec with Ontario !!

Quebec is a looooong ways for us over towards the East than is Ontario
I had better save LOTS of pennies to afford the week riding there and the week riding back also....

Thumb Back in '06

There were a couple of really great rides to that area in '04 - '06. I'd love to get back up there. It's the big empty up there.

That's exactly where we are headed...great area

Finding campgrounds for a 100 people is proving difficult...we have a few tentative routes...once we get hand shakes on the accommodations we'll post the dates and start the sign up process.

Like last year, teams for the Roaming Rally.

One day might be a long one as it stands. Not difficult but long...very long...wouldn't be a Roaming Rally without a bit of a challenge

It's not a campground, but the hotel/restaurant/bar in Parent that we stayed at for Orange Crush was awesome. Good food and beer, live music, warm room, felt like a million bucks after the days ride.

The train station restaurant manages a sort of hotel in Clova. Good prices, clean.

Neither will accommodate 100 people...

Rhino is utilizing his french heritage and getting in touch with campground owners

Hotels are UNcomfortable for some of us.
Plus they're only in cities *puke*
Even conventional campgrounds full of people push my comfort envelope.
It's a Roaming Rally for chrissake, not a BMW Rally, or even an Orange Rally.

I hear you, and generally agree. I can tell you Parent is no "city" by any stretch though, and the time I was there, I had ridden most of the evening in the pitch black and cold pouring rain through serious desolate wilderness to this outpost of miners/loggers/hydro workers.

Anyway that is kind of immaterial. I do agree that the spirit of a roaming rally involves camping, this was only a suggestion as there seriously is next to NOTHING up there, and certainly unlikely to be any quasi-organized camping at all.

You ain't seen bugs until you've been up there in June.

Cool2 Preparations

These rallies in the wilds should be considered serious business. And as such should take thorough and early preparation.

Aluminum panniers arrived today. These were hand made in South Dakota for me by Wendell. Also known as Muffintop Industries.
