Don't be alarmed when my Spotwalla position stops at the Canadian border. I don't have a Canadian data plan on my phone, so no Latitude. It should be back live when I cross back into the US.

Are you sure the Canadians will even let you in?
I'll tell her hello for you.

I guess we'll find out if they'll let me in shortly. I'm headed for the border in probably less than an hour.

Made it to Toronto. Staying with Tiffany's family friends here. Enjoyed a great steak dinner, and now a glass of scotch.

If they were, they didn't tell me at the border. It's a wonder this country isn't overrun. They pretty much just waved me through.

And then shouldn't I see what's north of Lake Superior too?

I came up with the following general route. (Note, these aren't the exact roads I plan to take, just what Google suggested when I put in my planned stops.



One goal of this trip is to meet up with other ADVriders. I've already made plans to Tent Space in three different places, and possibly a fourth. Hopefully I can arrange to meet others and maybe ride together for a bit.

I'll be posting a Spotwalla tracking map, occasional updates from the road, and then a full ride report when I return.

If you're located along my route, get in touch with me. PM here or call/text 901-237-1007.

Your map makes it look like the US owns the Great Lakes. Every Canadian scoolkid knows that they're ours.

Stopped by Finndian's place in Wawa, but his employee said he was out for the day. Probably riding. Met up with a couple other advriders, decided to split a room and ride to Thunder Bay tomorrow in better weather.

I hope you didn't get too wet on your ride to Wawa. It rained off and on all day in Chapleau after you left.

Yeah, off and on. Got pretty heavy when I got near Wawa. Stopped here for lunch and met a couple on BMW bikes loaded up. They're eventually on the way to South America. They suggested we could split a room three ways. Cool folks. I'll get a link to their blog when I get a chance.

Thanks for the hospitality, Rick. My thanks to your wife and son/daughter too. Pretty nice to let me in on your short family get-together.
