Any problems, let me know, or if you want to just pass the routes off as a GPX file, I can do it for you and post to the string.
Thanks Phil. I only posted those routes to see what people were interested in doing - to get the discussion going and so I just created them on the spot in Google Maps. I'm sure I have some similar routes saved as GPX files. I'll try to make some time to get the my route app this week. I'm up for whatever as long as it involves lots of riding!

PS: I rode past your cottage today but was in a rush to get home, so didn't stop by. Next time!
I don't know where is your cottage located but perhaps I past your house today...

Just checking in to see what's up.

I was chatting with the owners of the park today, and the same Saturday we are there, they are doing a chilli cook-off/pot luck dinner.
I think that solves the dinner plans for Sat night. My plan is to make a pot myself to add to dinner. But maybe anyone that plans on being there Sat night could add something as well, so we're all contributing. There's a grocery store not far away we can stop at after our ride on Sat, to buy what we need. Does that sound OK?

Also - depending on how many are coming, I may make everyone breakfast on Sunday before everyone goes home. Nothing fancy, just kind of a thanks for coming sort of thing.
For Sat night, I thought we could hang out on my site. I have the best fire pit, lots of firewood and an abundance of comfy chairs. There might even be a bit of whiskey offered around.

Photos show what my place looks like.
Site #28


The only other thing is the numbers.

Who's coming Friday ( I have a short ride planned for Friday for anyone interested, or able ), to Sunday?
Who's coming Sat - Sun?
Who's just coming Sat?

Any questions, concerns, etc... you can email me
[email protected]

Thanks.

Nice place.
Looking forward to the ride to Tweed!
I plan on arriving Friday early afternoon. Not sure if I'll want to do more riding that day.
Leaving Sunday AM. Staying at site #52.
I'd be glad to contribute $ for the Sat dinner.

Thanks,
Charlie

Hi Jamie,

My current plan is to take the day off work on Friday and leave Mississauga early morning. I'll take the scenic route over there, maybe through Parry Sound and Huntsville, getting there around 4-6pm latest.
I'm down for the potluck thing and being vegetarian, I may bring something healthy - not sure if that's allowed. Otherwise, I'm also happy to contribute $.
Sounds good on the whiskey and to balance things out, I might bring a big fat joint for Saturday night then.

Looking forward to this!

Just got confirmation from the wife that I'm free to ride boys!

I'll be there Friday evening and hanging out all weekend until you kick me out.

I need to call them now for a site to throw the tent down.

I would contact the park about a site if you want your own space.
But the sites are quite big, so see if you can share a site with someone else - save a bit of money too.
The sites from 42 - 57 all have trees lining both sides and are on the water. They are all big enough for a trailer, so two or three tents shouldn't be an issue if you were so inclined. Sites 36 - 38 are wide open with few trees.

I thought some people had booked the little cottages as well, but I hadn't heard yet? They are very nice, much more expensive than tenting, but very comfortable.

As I said, if you think you have friends that might enjoy a weekend away, and can manage the tenting & the riding on a variety of roads ( nothing too difficult though ), then feel free to invite them.

Thanks.

And I am making a plan for doing breakfast at my site Sunday morning before people leave.

If you get far enough away............................ you'll be on your way back home.

There are 3 of us filling up one cottage and I think two people in another cottage. And a bunch of people tenting it seems as well, so there should be a nice turn out.
Thanks for your efforts.
