    name it. I'll be travelling from the shore this time, so i'm about 1.5 hours from bear river, and I don't roll before 7:30. If you know the area, well, i don't - so you figure out where we should meet, and I'll do my best to make it there in a timely fashion. may have to get you guys down my way for a ride after this one! There is an abandoned gold mine in Mill Village that is said to be only accessible by 4x4... :evil

    I'll probably go up route 10, because i think to get to roxbury you go in through paradise, right? if i'm taking route 10, maybe we could meet at Nictaux falls, the junction of route 10 and hwy 210?? Maybe in Middleton? It depends what else you have planned.

    EDIT: just looking at the map, I don't know if i'd go all the way to Nictaux falls, I can take crisp road off the 10, and it'll take me right to west lawrencetown. my head is spinning now!!

    Done...when is 1000? :rofl

    EDIT: I can meet earlier, if it pleases the group, I could probably be there closer to 9 if I left at Oh-Seven-thirty-hundred hours...

    well I'm good all weekend, although at this point friday looks like good (better) weather. i'm working on a penny tech top case right now, I don't want to bring my Preciou$ Givi Ca$e$ through the woods if I don't need the storage space. :evil time to send some pm's? what about the guy (can't remember name) that met us in Bear River that wasn't able to go with us? Len maybe?

    Yellowknife, I know this is your RR thread, and we've now kind of frigged this up. should we see about splitting these posts in to a trip planning thread?

    Is there a way to get past kemp on dirt/trail. My goal is to go as far as I can with minimum slab. I have been on the Tom's Savannah/ South Carrying Lake road, but can't find a way past Kemp.

    Not that I know of with a bike. they do with skidoos in the winter,but I don't go skidooing or atving. I'll ask some of the guys that do,and see what i can find out. This is the first time I have been in there in about 25 years. use to know all the roads like the back of my hand and where they went,use to camp and fish in there almost every weekend when we where teenagers.No irving roads back there then. Most of the old roads we used are hard to find or have been clearcut and replanted,so they arn't even there any more.

    So I met with Dana and Nate at the Middleton Timmy's at the agreed upon 1000 hrs, beautiful weather, can't wait to get riding.....We did forget that it has p*ss poured rain for the last 3 days, that means water and mud, just what a big Beemer with Tourances loves.

    It was hot so a quick dip in the cool water was in order, after that it was off to New Germany for pizza, then off to LaHave for Nate, Berwick for Dana and Bridgetown for me....hope more can join us for the next trip.

    Not quite, a little detour was in order at the East Dalhousie Rd., then we took the #10 to New Germany. Damn SPOT.....given up our secrets. make that Ridge Rd. Marker 36 on SPOT.

    If you put the SPOT tracker on Sat. View, the Railbed is visible...

    And I blame it all on that white tail deer. :eek1

    Not many pics today. Went on the trail to Roxbury and as Fred mentioned the trail was very wet. It got to the point where there was no desire to continue with too much greasy mud for the tourance tires to handle. Even knobbies were not up to the mud challenge that we encountered. We made a command decision to turn around after 8 kilometers and grab a soda in Nictaux after we straightened out a mirror.
