i'll be watching for slow drinkers

no need for a" can cozy" if you can't finish a beer before it gets too warm you are doing it wrong.

1 500ml can of beer = 4 sips, follow with a shot ( i prefer tequila ) and repeat. don't worry , as a professional bartender it is my job to make sure that you are drinking at a fast steady pace. i will keep my eye on you and offer up another round if i see you slacking.

all you guys have to do is make sure i find the door out of the sauna. ( inside joke for all of you that watched me stuggle with the door last year)

Lmao. I forgot about the sauna incident. It wouldn't be too bad....if it wasn't your sauna.

............Right....thanks for the heads up Northrider...I will draw up a map, as well as post the GPS co-ordinates for the Sauna door...
.....perhaps a flashing neon arrow pointing in the right direction....and mark it with surveyors flagging tape...

Rally at Isplat's camp...

For those coming to the rally this week...

If bringing glass or the like, pack it well; there is one fairly rough and bumpy (but relatively short) section to climb on the camp road.
The person who owns the road dragged/graded the entire length to the camp, and a bunch of baby heads and baseballs have been pulled to the surface in several spots. It has been cleared of many, but the hill section remains a bit bumpy.

I know that some coming to the rally have no offroad experience, but I manage it on an RT, so all should be fine on a dualsport. The other option is to park at the bottom and walk in. Just over a kilometer.
With rain expected on Tuesday, Dan tells me it may improve, but I still recommend you pack any breakables well. (It makes a mess when a can of pop gets punctured in your topbox...)

When pulling off of highway 638 and passing the “farmhouse” on the road to the camp, beware the farmer’s large white dog. It isn’t overtly vicious, but don’t trust it. It's been known to scratch paint and has a strong jaw.

There are a couple of forks in the road, but the correct path will be discreetly marked with tastefully coloured tape where necessary. ie: Blaze Orange! or Midnight Black!

Final note. Good times and great riding will prevail, Dan and Greta have prepared some fine feasts and enough beverages to keep an Aussie happy; but come prepared for cool nights, blackflies and mosquitos. Looking forward to seeing all YFFs!

Brian, are you there now?

How is the dock for parking my plane in case I decide to fly in my supplies so I don't have to haul them on my bike? Google Earth shows a dock at the shore, but I don't know how suitable it is. A sandy beach is fine too.

I plan to ride my bike in on Friday and leave Sunday morning. Looking forward to seeing all you old FFs again and meeting some new ones.

Rick, are planning on building a log home to stay on for the weekend. I know an having trouble packing my camping gear, but I don't need to fly it in !!!!
If you were to bring some extra fusing gear a long for a fly in, I would good with that.
Looking forward to the Rally, only two more sleeps until we leave Winnipeg.

Fusing gear?

I'm always looking for excuses to go flying or fishing so making the short flight to the camp seems like a good idea right now. Walleye season opens this weekend too. I would take some good aerial pics of the camp for Dan.

I am well on my way...

Spending to night at the "No Tell Motel" (Nipigon) in deference to the fact I am travelling to the NoFAR... I didn't want to stay anywhere which might be construed as "frilly"...and I promise to follow suit with my selection of nightwear...

Since I am unable to attend and I am sure everyone else will be too busy bending their elbows to type, make sure you keep the posts of trips coming! At least I can follow the trip from my home and office! Thanks Lee.

OK Whyswoman, I can cope with the nightwear; just be careful with the Night Moves
