Trip 08 2011 Huronia Airport

This is an almost live post. I am resting my tired butt on a rickety sawhorse, in the grassy section of the parking lot of the Huronia Airport. Thanks to modern technology, (and footloose's iPad!), I am able to communicate the fact that I rode 759 miles today. Footloose, kayakman, and I are all setup with our tents for the night, and we are all ready for the excitement of the flyin tomorrow!

(tmcgee, please pass the word on to my contacts that all is good!)

We are enjoying a pre-breakfast, before the flyin breakfast, at the local Timmie's.

Do you have a cottage in this area, WEE4MEE?

Black Lab in Midland??

Damn! I'd like to meet the craftsman, hear about his travels, his kayaks, and see that bike!

How long are you staying at the fly in? in Ontario?

My guess is that he'll be there all day and he's headed home to Maine early tomorrow.

Yes, that is the plan. I will leave early in the morning, head up through Algonquin Park, then cross into Quebec, through Montreal, and probably spend the night in Magog, before heading back to Maine.

I hope to post photos of today a little bit later.

It's true. He's here.

As for the bike, it's not so much the look of it as the mix of textures

We had a good chat. The fly-in was about over as the weather was turning. The vintage motorcycle meet apparently had one bike. Barry is set up in his tent in the most mosquitoey spot he could find.
