I got the tent up and headed over to the reception / bar / shop building to get something to cook. It took a bit of time to get there as I had to pass a lot of interesting bikes and friendly people. So far so good. In the bar I made some new friends Phil (Roastbeef82) Gary and Donnie. Beer was offered and spaghetti ordered. Bike talk began.
Next morning I met Buckles on his 1200GS adv. We had met previously at the Dragon Rally in 2010. Buckles and I decided to take a spin up with Phil and Chris to the Refuge to check out the route for the rally next day. About 6km out of Bardonecchia up a very small road you turn off at this sign.
It supposed to be 26kms to Lago Sommeiller, the top, from here...I wouldn’t be surprised.

Up through the tree line.





Phil in the camo but you can still see him...



A bunch of Honda guys camping here. A nice handy river for cooling off
