    You'll both have reserved spaces on the list. With any luck I'll have my ducks in a row earlier so people can maybe plan a little better. It will probably be a little earlier in August too.

    Hey Skibum: Alcontrast here. I'm the guy you met randomly in St Johns when I was rolling around looking for a hotel for the night a week or so after the Soiree. Again sorry I missed the soireee but it was great to run into you there in town. If I'm local I would love to head up for next years soiree. I didn't get a chance to check out the Trailway and I kind of regret that amongst other things so a trip back to newfoundland is certainly in order.

    hey, nice to meet you too-I looked for your bike later that night but you found somewhere else. Nice to meet you too and the soiree is a great opportunity to find a riding buddy to hang with while you explore, come on up! keep an eye n the thread 'cause there will be a cap on #'s for next year. :thumb

    yeah dude, just made my level III yesterday, HUEBA today and offshore Thursday. Back in 3 weeks just in time to go to Japan for Cirque October 15th. All of which leaves little time for the moto. Did get a couple of good mtn bike rides in this week though:ricky

    got out for some excellent surf today after hungover HUEBA, too bad the zipper on my suit is broken-I was about 100 lbs heavier with all the water I had in it:lol3
    I think more beer is in order:freaky

    hey Mike, I'm offshore on a Petro Canada, now Suncor Inc installation for 2-3 weeks today then home for 1 or 2 weeks and off to work 3 weeks for Cirque du Soleil as a fly-in rigger. I know a few folks working for them in various departments, it's a huge business.
