    Just noticed your little blue bike. Is that a Yamaha YDS5e. I had a red onenew in 1967. Was great fun way back when...

    Hey Jimm.
    There was a guy" c-stain " from the valley who posted on the site that he was looking for a partner to run the Trans Lab with this summer. Maybe you already saw it? Anyway I thought of your friend. You might want to check it out.

    Jim.I am interested.Do you still plan on running the same route with all the dirt roads.I am up for the dirt.Trying to ride as much as I can to prepare for Labrador.You are talking about tomorrow right? Not sure where the Timmies at Cole Harbour is.What about the one at #7 and Forrest Hills?

    Jim.
    I took today off(sun shining and all) and rode to Mooseland to mow the lawn and then went in search of dirt roads.I wanted to try out the new steering stabilizer.I am very impressed and totally recommend if you like the gravel roads. I did around 300kms today with well over half on the dirt.
    I am interested in going Monday or Tuesday as long as it isn't raining.A friend or two might also want to come.Anyone else interested?

    I have 30 yrs at the dockyard so I have a ton of leave and can take time off whenever I want.In fact I took today(my birthday) off and went for a ride.Any good day you want to go for a run just let me know.I think I am heading to Mooseland this weekend to slay some trout(and beer) with Don,my neighbour who was with me last week at Timmies. The address is 1914 Mooseland Rd if you are out and about and my cell# is 499-6102.
    The route you posted sounds like a great ride.Lots of dirt roads.I love getting off the pavement and exploring the back roads.I think that is one of the reasons I love the Strom so much.

    I drive a truck with a pop up camper, trailer the wee. Stay at Provincial Parks and with friends. Coming from Pictou to Bridgewater around labour day temp was 96F (35C), just before the tropical storm. I've acclimated to the desert, that humidity is brutal. Nova Scotia is a gem, like going back in time.

    Since I retired in '06 I've been spending summers in NS. Mostly south shore but exploring a lot of the less inhabited parts. Beautiful province with winding uncrowded roads, beaches and outstanding people. Jesus it was a hot summer though.
