    ...so I rearranged work, travel and personal commitments to make this ride! Wooot! Cabin booked and the crew is set!

    One question... does anyone coming up from Ottawa or further East have a spot on their trailer to hitch a ride BACK on Sunday? I need to be in Drummondville for work first thing Monday and am not hot on riding all the way there (esp solo) or going back to Toronto only to hop on a plane for first thing Monday...

    Otherwise, if anyone is planning to return East-bound on Sunday via backroads (to Ottawa for instance), I'd be happy to join you, but much prefer to hitch a trailer ride cutting out 300-400KMs of slab entirely...

    Please PM me if you can offer a lift!

    You know, I was just sitting here thinking what a great year it would be to do the Annual fall colours weekend at the Wolf Den.....
    and then I noticed this thread.
    I haven't been in a couple of years ( maybe 3? ).
    I would love to go, I think I'm even off that weekend, except I finally retired the mighty 250 Sherpa and don't actually have anything on the road right now ( I'm working on it - but apparently my son needs a car more than I need a bike I'm told )

    I'll hold out some slim hope. I might be able to borrow something at the last second.

    Booked the cabin.

    I'm planing on bringing two bikes. Friday small bike on small bike route. Saturday big bike on small bike route just like the old days. @Sewerat make sure you'll come I'll need you to pull me out of deep mud

    My tow rope has gone missing. Not sure where it got left, maybe at the Bison Lodge. Can't tow without my lucky strap, sorry

    Thanks.
    It looks like I'm probably working though, unless the course gets cancelled.
    I did find someone foolish enough to loan me a bike though.

    My problem is I basically have to plan my entire year by early March. The dates of some events always seem to be a bit flexible.
    But this one is always the last weekend in September, right?

    Would I be able to do a last minute show up and pay on sat? Not sure if I can make it but if I can would like to do a last minute scramble ride up there for overnight on sat.

    To avoid confusion for discussion as to what constitutes the first or last weekend of a particular month, it is scheduled for the fist weekend that includes a day in October...even if tis Sunday. That means, next year we would be October 5-7. I will confirm the day though before the end of 2017.

    While we still have a large group this year, the 10+ unoccupied beds could mean this is the last one in its current form. Need to fill it up.

    We have a cancellation, so a single spot in our 3-person cabin is available. In case anyone wanted to score a bargain on a bed for the weekend. Please PM me if you are interested in attending this awesome event but didn't have enough takers to organize a full cabin.
