    The Lighthouse Route

    The lighthouse route follows Nova Scotia's South Shore. You'll find quiet country roads where ox teams still haul lumber, and coastal villages where fishermen still row wood dories out to sea.



    Come joint us for the International Salty Fog Rally.

    No vendors
    No beer tent
    No admission fee

    Just some of the best riding in the Americas and camaraderie that cannot be beat.

    August 16 to ??? (whenever your time/money runs out)

    Don't forget to M or email me if you are coming so the Government of Nova Scotia can issue your membership certificate into the Order of Good Times.

    ....true enough Paul. Part of the costs will have to do with the Larry's River leg where we plan to have some food, music, etc. Camping or house bedroll space is free. Incidental costs really to cover food and associated supplies. There are no restaurants in Larry's River so we are preparing food for hungry arrivals plus. We volunteer the cooking and prep part! All admissions fees and camping costs, on the Cape Breton side, are, of course, additional (although we will try and obtain a group rate wherever possible).

    Note: That South Shore route that Paul outlined is gorgeous albeit l-o-n-g. If you have the time then we really recommend it. I note that Tom Raddall Park is mentioned on the map. Tom's book, Warden's of the North is a great read. Visit Cape Sable Island lighthouse and beach on the way. -Bob and Mary

Halifax to Cheticamp (gateway to Breton Highlands) is 260mi. or so and then on to Meat Cove is say 40mi. with 8-10 mi. on dirt.
    I'm good to go with all of this but others may wish to plan their time accordingly.

    I like the fact that Meat Cove isn't on Map Quest.....my kind of place.

    Breeze
    Meat Cove is not on Map Quest since it is a landing strip for Black Helicopters.

    You reasoning is great and I would do the same except I want to ride over the Green Mountains to Brunswick Naval Air Station and spend one night there.

    I have also built a ferry into my route to save time. Don't forget to stop at Larry's River for the encampment there.

    Good to hear from you!

    Another Reason to attend the Salty Fog Rally

    Impossible to get there without passing through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Americas.

    One of the stops on the Salty Fog Rally will be the


    Glenora Distillery

    Discover how Canada’s only Single Malt whisky is made! Located on a 600-acre lot, the Glenora distillery invites you to visit seven buildings built in traditional “post and beam” style recalling Scottish distilleries. Once inside, see the malt kiln and the facilities for milling, storing, aging and bottling. As well as distilling Single Malt whisky, the distillery’s boutique offers a wide variety of alcohols such as Glen Breton rare Single Malt whisky, Smugglers Cove rums and Cape Breton Silver. According to master distiller Ken Roberts, the best way to appreciate Single Malt whisky is to drink it right from the source!
    Tours available daily
    9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.


    Shown here are two Canadian MOA members checking out their antifreeze supply for the upcoming winter.


    The water supply is carefully maintained and checked. In the winter this stream gets a bit stiff. Salty Fog Rally participants will be able to add their knowledge and experience to the quality control process.


    Come on along on a brief tour that Salty Fog Rally participants will be taking.


    All ingredients are carefully monitored and checked. Touringo's assistant extracts a small sample to check for quality.


    Constant quality checking ensures the participants will enjoy the end of the tour.


    The final product is moved to a cask to begin a mellowing process.


    Come join us for a wee bit of the dram. Touringo has constantly quality checked production at the distillery. PaulBach will arrive early to double check Touringo's findings. Camping is available at the distillery.

    ...and there's only one way over to Cape Breton Island and that's across the Causeway and over the swing bridge. http://www.virtualmuseum.ca/pm.php?i...&sl=4871&pos=1

    ...and speaking of bridges, the Larry's River location is just one good watermelon seed spit away from Nova Scotia's only footbridge across a river. A bit of history at http://www.rootsweb.com/~nslsatb/tor...larryshist.htm
