OshkoshFlight Week in later July -
depending on how early the weather breaks in spring ....I'd like to complete my busted stator interrupted trip down the southern part of the BRP.

Right now the 2018 goal is to get the CFB 6 miles to the new house.

Touratech Rally in Plains, WA in June.

Horizons Unlimited WestFest in Nakusp, BC in August.

Perhaps a weekend jaunt down to Portland, OR for the One Moto show in February - weather holding for us, that is.

And several weekenders.

My Summer....so far..

Going to do what StuckOnEarth suggested and do a lot of mini weekend camping trips...to get used to motocamping, and figuring out my gear....what works, what doesn't and what needs to be tweaked.

NEVA '18....which really is not that much of a trip, since I am only an hour South of Gravenhurst, where NEVA is being held this year.
But then....


Ontario to Newfoundland.
From Newfoundland, taking the Trans Labrador Highway to the James Bay Highway. Up to Raddison Quebec. Fly in a float plane to a remote Inuit community on the shores of James Bay. Back home.

This. Exactly this.

If you're a diver, and you get new gear, you do what's called a "check-out dive" to make sure everything works and you know how to work it. I plan on doing several of these, starting with some cooler temperatures in April.

I'm planning on doing NEVA '18 as well and really looking forward to it.

I would love to get a 8 day trip down to Deals Gap again. Camping in the Smoky's is awesome during fall colours.

If I'm lucky - Colorado might be in the cards this spring.

Those Horizons Unlimited weekends are always a good time.

I've always wanted to visit the Trinity site where the first atomic bomb was detonated. It's only open twice a year, on the first Saturdays of April and October. Aiming for April 7, and will probably try to do a SaddleSore 1000 on the way back.
