    Nothing like a good dry space during a long spell of inclement weather to bring on a discussion of String Theory. :D

    Nice ocean / bay view!

    The crew spotted us in Clarenville today and came over to chat. Jacob, Kevin and Patrice were in good spirits, and will surely have a great ride report when they're done.

    The longer the ride, the more your boots smell like dead fish.

    Mine do, anyway. :(

    Costco, 12 pairs of socks for $14.

    Use one pair every two days.

    Place used socks around the perimeter of your camp site to ward off Rum thieves.

    Works every time.

    When in the East Coast, Costco underwear at 6 for $10 is cheap insurance as Bluenosers and Newfs are getting wise to the sock trick. Hang the underwear on a stick beside the socks.

    Haven't lost a bottle yet. :freaky:1drink:D

    Try the left side. Virtually defenseless on that quarter.

    We've made it to Murphs! He's spoiling us with island hospitality and has us all squared away for a couple days before we make it for the West ala John Wayne.

    Yeah, that kind of stung. I guess the Canadian Forces learned their lesson at Dieppe.

    If anyone has pics of the mighty KLR down, please forward. Seems that Progressive doesn't have too many agents up that way.

    Thanks to all.

    There is nothing bad to be said about the Canadian Forces. They gave in full measure during both world wars, and have respect worldwide for their peacekeeping duties since then.

    The maple leaf is a proud badge, and is honoured worldwide for the forces commitment to personal service and a very high standard of ethics. The Canadians have always punched well beyond their weight.

    I thank you all.

    Regarding bike pics, I don't think anybody got any with the bike down.

    I don't find it low, or at least it wasn't intended to be. Dieppe was a goat-screw where the empire sent in the colonials as cannon fodder. It happened again and again, at Gallipoli and elsewhere.

    "The Lighthorsemen" is a brilliant Aussie film, as is "Breaker Morant."

    I'm glad to see we see it the same way. Lots of lives were voluntarily lost in the name of hope and determination...

    Get well soon Tim, and thank you very much for all the work and researching you put in the preparation of the trip. I'd have enjoy more evenings with you!
