    Just wanted to quote this before you can change it. :lol3

    Let there be squeeling and groping, where no goat is safe and only real men hang.

    Pussy here, I'll be thinking all night long what goes on out in the campsite. :lol3 (stays in the campsite)

    We are Brian and Sandra we are planning the Pan America route this year please see http://www.1a-2j.co.uk and was wondering if we could come along, a couple of Brits may not be such a bad thing. We arrive in Canada on the 8th June. Would love to join you. Let us know what we need to do if we can

    If anyone has any cancelling roomies, please PM me. I had a dig through my camping gear, and it's gonna cost me some $$ to get it liveable, lol. Must be something to do with the fact that it's been in storage since about 2000. :rofl Screw it... I'd rather have hot tubs, TVs, Wi-Fi and all the things you can't have camping!
    Thanks,

    Don't want to be called an old pussy, so if it makes any difference I saved some money and booked a standard room at the Hitching Post Motel. Here is a picture from last time I stayed there. It was pretty cheap and has the basic comforts.

    Oh sweet! I'm glad I found this thread.

    I'll be living up in Whistler this summer.

    At the moment I'm a noobie rider. I doubt I will still be a noobie by the time June rolls around.

    I'll be on a 1985 KLR600. Sound manageable to you guys?

    Noobs (and KLRs) are always welcome on the ride, just say no to Goat-Boy if he asks you to wear a sheep costume on Saturday night. :nono

    I put you on the Going/Probably Going list.

    Stumbled across this thread today and then read all 3 previous BCBTR ride reports. Got me excited (especially on an unusually cold day). Great idea for the bigger bikes, but it looks like you need some Tiger representation so count me in for Friday and Saturday (camping most likely).

    And while I am here, I have a few noob questions:

    1) It looks like you guys hit some sort a resturant for all meals so we don't have to worry about packing lunches (just a few snacks)?

    2) Campers- are you guys making reservations? where? how much? can we put a whole bunch of ADVer tents on one site (maybe being cheap here, don't know how much it costs?)

    Everything is organized, including gas and lunch stops each day. A bottle of water and a snack should be all that you need to carry.

    Your on the list:deal

    Fixed! :lol3

    Everyone is welcome to get lost all by themselves, some of us will come back and look for you. :rofl But, doing so may cause you to lose weight as lunch is very regimented, we have time constraints. :deal (BEER :1drink and hot tubs after the ride is over) :D

    So far we haven't lost one rider, yet. :wink: Although a couple of us lost the whole group last year...:huh

    Dropping your bike is completely acceptable and expected, expect cameras to be at the ready. :lol3



    Actually the time schedules are pretty strict, if Ross says he's leaving at 08:00 AM he's leaving at 08:00 AM with or without 20-riders behind him. Although the maps will allow you to play catch up or link ahead. :D

    I am hoping that my K1200LT sells soon so that I will have some new shiny panniers to scratch up on the G650X.

    I might be able to catch the group at the front before the bones break this year on the smaller bike:evil
