    The registration deadline is August 15 to ensure the shirts get printed etc. The design is finalized and looks great. Not long now kids.

    usually between 7 and 8 am, but I've never traveled with Goodol before, I hope I don't have to throw pinecones at his tent to get him up in the morning.

    Are any of you guys on the road yet? I'm still trying to get home from Mongolia, sitting in Heathrow waiting for my last flight right now and I should be in New Melbourne by early evening with a cold beer in my hand.

    If any of you are running SPOT trackers go to the RTR link in my sig line. EmmBeeDee has put up a Spotwalla link to track everyone headed to the Soiree and it would be great to have you on there. It's only a few posts back from the end right now.

    earlier today I rode my DRZ400s around my yard for the first time in two months; after blasting my foot and being in a cast for 4 weeks, then a "boot" for 5 weeks.. Things feel okay but this next 6-7 days I'll be getting on the bikes and seeing if I think riding to NFLND is a tragic idea or only a potentially tragic idea.

    It seems the TLH loop ride is OUT for this year unless I do it in late Sept.. definitely not part of a Soiree ride unfortunately.. I hate to miss the ride this year since I did it last year when the Goose Bay-Cartwright ferry was mandatory. I would love to do the all road Lab route the first year it was open.. I fear more and more of it will be paved very soon..

    anyway, if I don't make it up I hope you all have a great time and everyone rides safe and gets back home in better condition than they left...

    we'd love to see you up here but you'd need to be getting the boat tomorrow to catch the other mainlanders

    next time
