    Hopfully this will work, my photobuckets been AFU tonight, but I,ll try anyway.


    So Dyno and I got a early start to the weekend by heading up on thursday, great day, toured more back roads than I can remember. We need to find out RobbieOs location as apparently we went right by and didnt stop in, we will for sure next time so he wont be put out, lol.:D

    Friday was rainy so we headed east to Whitney to get out of it. Had a great day running back roads and trails on the east side of the park ending up in Tory Hill and doing the Pencil lake trail south and west from there, what a great ride that was, actually took some pics too

    East side of the park

    Had a small fire issue on Pencil lake trail, Im shopping for a horn now:lol3

    Had to go up and over the cliff to get around this water hazard

    By the time we got back friday night people were starting to trickle in and the party was starting, always good to see everyone again and have a few pops. Tried to be good and go to bed early and not be too hung over on Sat.

    Sat. was rainy morning again , so we had a plan and struck out on our own down Troutspawn to find a route around Kawagama toward Kenisis area.

    At troutspawn we caught a glimpse the elusive swamp dwelling DR:rofl tricky buggers to photograph.

    We did find a great route for the rest of the morning then met some of the others on the trail later on. Then we headed for lunch at the firehouse, after a few detours and dead ends we did finally make it there hungry and tired. Ran Kushog again, picked up some beer and a stray rider and back to the wolfs den

    end of the day

    Sat night was a great time , tons of food and laughs, really great to see everyone again, new and old, cant wait till next time.


    Cheers, Todd

    Right on. We won't be staying at the Den, since I live nearby. But we'll catch up at breakfast and ride & eat with you.
    Anyone have a route preference? Roads, trails, ... ?
    I prefer not to get too gnarly this time, but I can get something together based on preferences.

    By the way - can anyone tell me exactly where that gravel trail near Starret was (from mid-afternoon, last year). The one that was covered with leaves. I really want to find that again.

    Hey Gary, as of tommorow we will be just down the road from you in a tent on our canoe trip, if we freeze it may be a excuse to come over and have a beer with you guys.

    I'm in for this weekend despite the forecast.

    As for route, I'd prefer trails as much as possible but with all the rain water crossings may be deeper than usual. the photos and videos from last weekend look great. I'm pumped :freaky

    We will be up Thursday evening and riding both Friday and Sat. As per routes I like to mix it up but at 2 C we may want to avoid any major water crossings :eek1
