    I will be in Nova Scotia the 2nd and 3rd weeks of July...

    Will anyone be hanging out there sometime around 6/10 to 6/20?

    If so, let me know and I will keep a lookout for you.

    Sounds like your keeping company with some very frisky ladies, riding bikes and towing... hats of to them. If I see them I will be sure to say HI and wish them well.

    Will be looking for the BMW/Harley pair... good to hear grandfather is still riding. Hope he enjoys his trip.

    My ride is a silver DL1000 with silver side cases.

    Planing to stay mostly in the north and at Provincial Campgrounds.

    The web site suggest reservations, I wonder if these campgrounds are so busy to reguire calling ahead.

    Anyone have expericence with the NS Provincial Campgrounds?

    I'll try to keep an eye out for you guys. If your around the Halifax area drop me a line. Maybe we can hook up for a short ride. Look for the red KLR650 with Wolfman tank panniers :D

    I expect to be up that way the second week in July. I have not decided on a specific departure date as yet.

    Here is my planned route to Halifax. I want to avoid the far East traffic congestion and have selcted a route more toward the West. I will try to camp but hate hot , sticky nights. Any recommendations on higher elevation places near my route that one can pitch a tent without a reservation. Alternate routes for those of you who know would also be appreciated. :ear

    on Cape Breton from July 9 through the 16th, based in Ingonish.

    Blue '03 K12GT, Red '02 VFR800.

    I think there's going to be a ton of bikes around there - everybody and his brother seems to be doing Nova Scotia before/after the Vt. Rally.

    If you're on the Cabot, I'm sure we'll see you!
