I'll be in the GTA soon, and maybe we will meet. I won't make it to the April 29th ride, but I will watch for a map and try to ride the same route some time in May.
Here is my schedule for the Rock (there is a thread here about this, and I recollect that you are there):
June 24: leave TO at about noon.
June 29: catch the ferry from NSNS to Argentia NL
June 30: ride Placentia-Trepassey- St. John's with Newfoundlander and his friends, Romans, and countrymen.
July 1 & 2: Celebrate Canada Day with people in St. John's, probably including the aforementioned bikers.
July 3: head west to face the DECISION: do I ride Labrador or chicken out?
July 11 (approx) arrive GTA. Lick wounds and plan James Bay trip for 2008?
As I understand things, my plans and your plans take us to different parts of The Rock at different times.
Here are two ideas from www.ridetherock.com
, a place you would enjoy.
1. Give Gosine's Trucking on Bell Island a call to compare prices. They do weekly trips to/from Ontario.
2. Ive been doing a few runs locally with these guys.
van is leaving stephenville tonight to head for the boat, end destination is somewhere in Ontario where its meeting up with a larger truck, then returning.
Not sure if it is of help though since its a mini-van, and i don't know whats in it on the way back, but wouldn't hurt to call em since they are back and forth all the time with trucks large and small.
