    It should be easy enough to fit a snorkle but I am not sure you can get Knobbies in that size.

    I can think of a corner or two on the gravel roads that one of these might have been a better option last year

    Some of that ride looks very familiar.

    Well this is what Ontario looks like right now:

    We don't often get to ride in January, in Ontario, so when I finished putting my DR back together today, I took it for a very short ride as the cold weather was moving back in, after a day of +10C temperature made almost all the snow leave. (You might want to click the "Annotations" bubble to see what was going through my mind as I was riding.)

    And now Winter's back.

    Today is the cutoff. Only a few folks who have signed up but not sent in their "registration"...

    Looks like a great crowd of folks this year, promises to be a fun weekend of riding and socializing :freaky

    In the next week or two an email will go out to everyone who registered containing

    • maps
    • gps files
    • Info writeup
    • Camping logistics, etc
    Cya in June

    I cant wait. Watching those recent videos really gave me a sense of how important it will be to rely on your GPS. You can see that if you can't figure out which direction you are supposed to be going, you can quickly get very lost. I for one will be doing some practice navigation as soon as the weather allows.

    There are a few spots where not following the track will get you into trouble. Lots of trails....some very unsuitable for a loaded dualsport bike....

    Some times the track brings to the fun stuff, other times it avoids some undoable trails :nod

    Zooming in is key in a few spots :thumb

    I can only assume that I'll have more that a 3 foot run at it and it won't be covered with moss and leaves. We could always take a tour group on a little side expedition back to that camping spot. :lol3
