    my paypal at [email protected] is now open for those who want to register, the registration fee is $75 and $15 for t-shirts. Please include the size you want.

    First week of September is confirmed to accommodate the TLH crowd more easily, plus I have some other commitments earlier in August that would make getting all of the ducks in a row really difficult for the last weekend of August.

    Two RTR members have now clinched their spots for 2010. I guess I'll make it official to open the paypal option at "[email protected]" for everyone who's ready to come up.

    Hey G-Tex, sorry you can't make it this year, we're laying out some more offroad routes for this year.

    Greg, Sue says she's looking forward to seeing your sorry ass up here again too-she likes your sense of humour. Maybe this year I'll ride a little more?

    I'm going to the soiree via LWU/A CW as proposed in the RTR forum thread http://www.ridetherock.com/forums/showpost.php?p=63866&postcount=155

    I believe there are others who will be on roughly the same journey at roughly the same time. Whether you go to the Soiree or not, the LWU/A ride on the recently completed TLH is reason enough to make the trip.

    So............................to make it easier to keep up with who is going, and who is a wantabee, I am starting a sign-up sheet entitled "LWU/A CW to Newfoundland via Gaspe, TLH, and Blanc Sablon" on this forum. Please indicate your intentions on that thread. We will know to look for you along the way.:clap:clap:clap

    That's great Chuck, are you planning to post it on RTR too? I should have more info to put up one of these days, working on shirt designs still.

    A couple of us were out yesterday doing a little exploring in the area and rode a nice loop and some other stuff which will add a bunch of offroad terrain for this years soiree. We also started to log it for writing up a route sheet

    Well, that may be true, but you might still get lost? I'll post where to get a wee roll chart soon and the video we shot the other day later tonight
