    Interested but the last time I wanted to enter Canoodia they wouldn't let me in. I'll have to see what it'll take to fix that. I'll post up what I find out.

    EDIT: I've sent an e-mail to the Canadian consulate in Washington DC. We'll see.

    Too costly and time consuming for a short trip this year. Dammit.

    I'm just flummoxed over what it takes for a visit. Someone wanna give me a job for the week? I hear a temporary work visa would actually clear the way easier than rehabilittation.

    Try living here, they don’t make it easy to get off the island. Expensive ferries and flights not to mention it's really far from anything. That being said I love it here.

    Family stuff has me putting off my May trip until August, and changing my route choice to include the Avalon Peninsula. My first Soirée seems on the near horizon, I’ll know the time slot soon.

    Sure we have room, it’s looking to be a small and cozy weekend. Didn’t see anything on MOA?

    And I know you wanted to get back here!

    Not sure if I’ll make it to your place on my way to the MOA, might go to my buddy’s in Brattleboro. Waiting to hear back from him.

    Can't make the soiree this year, already committed to leading a ride at the Touratech Dirtdaze Rally that weekend.

    That said, ping me if your Brat buddy doesn't come through. I'm ~45 minutes from Brat right on Route 100.

    Thanks. Undying, went to Camhead’s in Maine instead. Possible I’ll see you at CroMag, what are the dates?

    Latest update is that for this small scale event Sarah has again offered to cook all meals for everyone for the rally. Jerry or Doug might chime in to tell you how well they ate last year.

    Second.y as our drilled well has not been done yet we’re also go NRG to have to rent a porta potty again.

    As a result to cover expenses we’ll have to charge a registration fee as we did back in the day. I used to charge $75 per head but I think $70 per head this year should cover it.

    On another note, last year we went to the restaurant at Grates Cove Studios for Saturday supper, each person paid their own. Do people want to do the same again or not?

    Sarah is a fantastic cook, you won’t be disappointed.
