    You should try and bump into Knybanjo from SC while at Wetfest... A great guy to know and to ride with anywhere...

    He rides that Wee of his all over the place!

    Yep, he's one of the people I really want to meet. He's a wiener dog fan too.

    It's a date :wink:

    I'll need to decide whether to take the weestrom or the DR650 for this adventure. There are pros and cons to each.

    Put me on the list as a tour guide if coming by Campbell River area again. Thanks for reminding how much we actually have here.

    You off to the BC Big Adventure ride in Sept?

    Joe's shirt is actually from his agility team - the Scallywaggs. For motorcycling he has now abandoned the pirate gear in favour of a new high-viz jacket. :D

    Now that the rains have come it's time for me to get busy and finish this RR along with a couple of other adventures that I had in the fall. I'm already getting stoked about next year's trips too!

    Joe needs a Hugh Hefner style shiny lounge lizard robe for those lazy evenings around the campfire.

    Joe is one lucky dog that he doesn't get left behind when you go off having fun on the bike. :)

    I've had the problem before of "no pets" so I developed a routine of stopping at 1800 and calling ahead to the various motels until I get one that accepts pets. In Drummondville QC I made six calls before I found one that would take Suzi and I. Due to my poor (non-existent) French, the calls went something like this:

    "Bon soir, Une chambre pour la nuit avec une petit chien?"
    The reply in heavily accented Hanglish...
    "Non, we don't 'av no rooms wit dogs for you." (in my mind I tacked on scenes of him leaning over to call across the room to his wife watching television. "Honey, ders a sicko 'ere dat wants to know if we supply small dogs wit de rooms."
    Hahaha! It's so much easier to camp. :rofl


    Here's Suzi:

    If you and Joe ever find yourselves in the Toronto area, let us know.

    That's a magical place, where you live I not back a week, my legs are still sore from kayaking, but already I want to comeback for a visit.

    After being away from my lab for 12 days, he shows nothing but gratidued to me for bringing him back home. Right now he is the most grateful dog that I've ever seen.
