    Is Newfie Screech or Big Dipper available there ?
    Newfoundland Screech of course but a few others as well. Most certainly come and dispose of some cigars in proper fashion. Cod might not be an easy catch.... but a few trout are upstream. Working on a possibility of getting a few interested folks out to sea on a local fishing/recreational boat....but we'll see..... not yet sure about that liability question on that one. BTW.... that guns thing is always hovering around.... usually laced with humor etc (but, there are times I wish....) Hope you can make it. We will be posting a cell phone link time for those looking to meet up along the path. -Bob

    I got my ferry reservations made and am pumped! Why ferry? Want to spend more time in Nova Scotia. Besides this sea dog wants to see salt water from horizon to horizon.

    Take a photo tour of the Cat.

    Cell phone service

    I don't know if I'll meet any of you on this trip, but I will be in the area from Friday, August 17 until Thursday, August 23 when I hightail it back to Boston via CAT.

    I've got a ride already scheduled with a friend, but I could always meet him a day later than planned and possibly join this group at Larry's River for a short time. I need to work this out.

    Anyway, in my trip prep, I looked into cell phone coverage. Another friend came back from Nova Scotia 10 days ago and he reports that Verizon has good coverage, except for the lack of data service. For me, I contacted Sprint and this is what they said about "the Canada":

    "Yes, the PCS Phone would definitely work in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Cape Breton Island in Canada. Please know that the Canada is an international location, therefore, it is not covered under your service plan. The account would be billed at the default rate of $0.59/minutes for Canada Roaming.

    However, you can opt for the following plan so that the default rate would be reduced to $0.20/minute.

    $2.99 Canada Roaming Option

    You are requested to write back to me if you wish to add the above mentioned option to the account. Please let me know if you have further questions. "

    .... there are pockets in the Province (like everywhere) where the cell will not have a signal. Larry's River is one such place. Although, it is only about a ten mile radius. We will be posting a cell number or two for 'on the road contacts' plus a land line in Larry's River for the 17/18th. -Bob (a local rep for The Canada)

    .... it's late and the smell of Mary's spaghetti sauce moves down the stairs. The sauce is being prepared for spaghetti and for lasagna. A Salty Fog greeting for those prepared to make the trip. I still have those refried beans in a tortilla wrap to make. The labor is free but a modest donation to cover food costs is appreciated. Camping is free (indoor bedroll space as well) .....but, as of yet we have no showers (next year).

    I have a map on PDF but it is 175k and I can't seem to make it smaller. Once I get that figured out I will post.

    Please contact Paulbach to join in the merrymaking and become one of the founding members of this little (for now) rally. All are welcome and who wouldn't want to get their smilin' face in ( or 'on') the BMWMOA mag??? Schedule coming very soon. -Bob

    Since I found out about this AFTER another trip was all scheduled and planned, I'm working on getting started a day earlier and joining you folks for the kickoff, and then I'll head off to meet my original riding buddy, who should be somewhere near Pugwash by Saturday night.

    Please email me a map, if you would, Bob: tfm at 110 dot net.

    The best part of summer

    It's August - the last month of summer. Temperatures tomorrow (August 2) are to rise to the 90's

    You can

    • circle the block
    • ride in hair dryer like heat
    • hide in an air conditioned cage


    or

    Head For the Salty Fog Rally


    Oh, don't forget to bring a warm blanket.

    August

    August means a lot of things to many people:

    Hot
    Steamy
    Sticky
    Humid
    Hazy
    Uncomfortable
    Thunderstorms

    But if you are going to the Salty Fog Rally

    Cool, Comfortable, Breezy, Outdoor Living


    If you prefer the latter to the former, join us at the

    Yes and "know."

    In the end all who attend will have a great time. One of the top ten tourist destinations is the venue. Early arrivals will have all the salt cod and salty fog they wish.

    Now about GS and BS. Good rallies have ample amounts of both.

    All questions will be thoroughly evaluated and reviewed by the same committee that is studying the winter rally.

    In the meantime plans are underway for the Big and Better GIG in Gotham.
