Miss ya Klay. It was nice to read your post here (despite your frustrations! :)).
Missing the riding and rider friends on the northern side of the border myself too. In Grand Marais, we are without question at the end of the road now. This pandemic is frustrating, but the solution continues to test our diligence and fortitude. In North America and Europe, most people alive have never been required to make this kind of commitment to an adversary of this nature. Stay safe and ride as much as you can!
Pulling the bike out this weekend. Had it out for a bit in March when we had some nice weather, but been too busy the last few weeks to really take advantage of it.
One of these days I’d like to meet some of you. Been here since September, but COVID has made meeting people kind of difficult and this riding around by myself thing is getting old.
be moving to T Bay June 1. Touch base.
Putting a plug in for some Leatt adv armour i am selling. 240 shipped. size L/xl
Was a great day today weather wise.
Went for a ride to scout out some —“Temporary illegal”— Crown Land camping sites.
It’s not illegal if you don’t get caught. And even if you do get caught, it’s illegal only if they care and can do something about it.
Klay, I'm VA3 IRF. Are you on HF??
Yes! AA0WW here. Great call on cw.
I've got a Butternut HF6V vertical and a wire dipole cut for 75 meters. I can load up the dipole on all bands except 160 meters. I don't have a radio that works on that new 60 meter band.
I'm running an end fed long wire, good SWR on 10, 20,40 and 80. Maybe I'll try to catch you 20 meter some evening.
I have managed to contact my brother in Winnipeg with this rig.
The locals have a propogation meeting on Wednesdays, 4:30 EST , 3.675 Primary, 7.135 Secondary.
I'm also getting some of the Michigan repeaters on 2 Meter, with a 5/9.
I may try to do some SOTA with the bike this summer.
I'll give it a listen.
Propogation is improving. I'm on phone for now, don't have a key.
My cw skills are declining. The first few years I made a lot of cw contacts. I had to pass a 20 wpm test to get my Extra and full frequency privileges. I started to get good at it after a few years, but I don't use it much anymore. It's still handy to know because I can catch the call sign when a repeater IDs. I still have a Bencher straight key. Super nice.
I think we don't have as many license classes here. Anyway, I am licensed for all the HAM frequencies, usually I'm hanging out around
7.150 in the evenings that I play with it. I also have a 2M/70 cm setup, and seem to be catching some of the northern repeaters in the USA.
I'll probably going to get out for a few rides this week...I'm riding a Vesys 300X now. At least we have a ton of backroads for local riding.
Hanging out at 7.135 tonight for a bit.
With all the residential school problems (re)surfacing, that got me thinking about the Stirland Lake abandoned site mentioned earlier in the thread, got me Googling... found this online, which actually links to this thread!
Sadly, also found this, a perspective from an aboriginal fellow that attended: https://www.homelessguide.com/2019/03/from-tanya-talagas-all-our-relations.html
Anyone been up there recently? Sure looks intact in the pictures.
Haven't been there in quite a few years now. Think it will be off limits soon anyway the way things are going. Too bad, really cool place if you don't take the past into consideration.
Finally settled into T Bay. Sort of. Beauty day. A cruise out to the sleeping giant is in order. A short journey on the wee GS to blow out the cobwebs. I’m Hi Viz, give me a wave.
Lots of deer on the Giant!!!!
