    OK inmates, yes it's March and we're already talking about fall.

    Like every year, It is at the end of September or beginning of October...this time specifically ( September 29 - October 1) and we are once again staying at the Wolf Den Bunkhouse (Wolf Den Hostel & Nature Retreat actually)

    They are located at 4568 Hwy 60, Oxtongue Lake, Ontario, Canada. 9kms west of the West Gate of Algonquin Park.

    We have the entire facility reserved and they sleep ~60 in rooms, cabins and dorms. No camping is offered. You need to make your own reservation and I recommend that you do so soon as we have already started booking and it usually fills up fast.

    It is best to reserve by phone as they have it reserved for us so the e-commerce site will likely show no vacancy.

    (705) 635-WDEN (9336)
    or toll free at 1-866-271-9336

    You do not have to stay there to join us of course, but you'll have more fun if you do :deal

    This is a VERY loosely organized event. The facility has a communal kitchen and all the tools and implements to cook pretty much anything you can dream up.

    People roll in anytime Friday and stay through Sunday. Saturday evening is a full group pot-luck meal where we all pitch in and share our favorite dishes. All other meals are your own responsibility and can be prepared on site with stuff you bring and/or share or there are several good restaurants very close by,

    There are no organized rides per se but there will be groups heading out on Saturday morning that you will be welcome to join if you haven't made up a plan by then.

    In case you don't know, the area offers fantastic riding of all sorts from muddy and rocky trails to fast gravel to twisty pavement and riders on all sorts of bikes will be there.......enduros, mid-size adventure bikes, monster adventure bikes, street bikes....... so don't worry about whether or not your ride is appropriate,..it is!

    10 Years....hmmm...that should be a shout out to all that have attended in prior years and may have missed a few...a Reunion of sorts....
    I'm still riding the same bike as in 2008....and with any luck it will be this years ride too.

    Sitting around the fire with Rummy last year, we figured there are only 4 of the original group from 2008 that have been to every one.

    Me, Rummy, KTMike and MtrHead..............are we missing anyone?

    I doubt you've missed any....I wouldn't have been sure of those. 10 in a row is hard. I've missed 2. We've had the 2009 Africa trip, people giving up riding for various reasons, moving away, death......

    I've made at least a brief appearance at all of them. Not ridden them all. Not stayed for most. But appeared.

    We couldn't get the time off this year with the wedding and all the stuff around it, so this year we will not be able to make it.

    There are still rooms and beds available. Let's try an book this all up. If any are still open at the end of August I will tell them to open them up for general use......that would be a shame.

    Low interest this year. The following sleeping areas are still open.

    -Loon East bunkhouse (sleeps 4 –one queen bed, two singles)

    -Ben’s cabin (sleeps 4 – one queen bed, two singles)

    -14 dorm beds

    I asked the to unreserve them and open them up for general reservations.

    As much as I'm sad to see this, I won't be attending this year, but hope those that do enjoy themselves
