    Since we just got on the subject of these fine shirts, Mary just went to check shirt inventory and the result is, at $20 each (plus shipping):

    1 small
    3 large
    5 Xlarge
    1 Xlarge with print on back
    1 2Xlarge

    That's it. Not sure when next batch will be printed.

    Just got back from the Moto Guzzi Inter-National Rally in Lavigne, Ontario and getting ready for the SFR and Nova Scotia.
    Weather or not, we'll have a good time!
    See you there,
    Nick

    A good time? That is certain..... and bring your appetite! The weather looks more pleasant than what we experienced last year. Some sprinkles seem to want to pester us on the 4th but we'll see. Weather here is somewhat of a crapshoot anyway. Some locale updates:

    The road to Meat Cove is in good shape (according to the campground owner) and they have reserved a camp spot for us with the best view. And this year the Chowder Hut is serving up some tasty fries, burgers, chowder etc.

    Breakfast is waiting for us in Pleasant Bay on Friday the 6th at the Mountain View Motel and Restaurant

    In Larry's River we have arranged a two hour fishing boat tour for sightseeing and jigging for mackerel ($20 cash each).

    This year Fortress Louisbourg celebrates 300 years. Our campground hosts in Louisbourg now offer a little shuttle service to take those interested in touring this amazing fortress (shuttle $2 each). That will save on walking around with riding gear or leaving loaded bikes in the parking lot.

    Tomorrow I will post the full schedule for the ride with GPS coordinates and times. - Bob

    ..... YOU CAN ALMOST SMELL THE SOUP! WITH LOTS OF GOOD FOOD TO FOLLOW. WITH ONLY A FEW DAYS UNTIL START, SOME FINAL 'CHORES' ARE BEING TIDIED UP AND WE HOPE THAT THE WEATHER GODS WILL BE KIND TO US THIS YEAR.

    FOR THOSE INTERESTED (who knows, you might be in the area and join in somewhere on the road) THE SCHEDULE IS:



    (MY APOLOGIES FOR THE BLUR BUT IT'S LATE SO I'M NOT GOING TO PLAY WITH THE PRINT. ENLARGING WILL MAKE IT MORE READABLE.... OH WELL).HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT A COPY JUST EMAIL ME FOR CLEAR COPY.

    STAY TUNED FOR THE RIDE REPORT IN A SEPARATE THREAD LATER IN SEPTEMBER! Later, Bob

    Nova Scotia Map

    The very best map of Nova Scotia is free for the asking at the Welcome Center in Amherst. You can't miss it, and it's a good place to stop.
    Salty Fog Rally 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, AND LOOKING FORWARD TO 2014!

    Good point Tom. However, the Motorcyclist Guide to Nova Scotia is no longer free from the Tourist facility. You can get this excellent book at bike shops though for $5 I think. If you are a AAA (CAA member here) you can pick up the Nova Scotia map as well as the 'hard to find' map of Cape Breton (tourism may have it though - Bob

    I plan on leaving NJ on Friday early am, camping somewhere in VT on Friday night and in Alexander ME on Saturday night. Should arrive in Larry's River on Sunday afternoon. The camping locations may change depending on whether I'm tired or not...... See you there

    Enjoy a safe ride and see you Sunday.

    Speaking of ..... we now have one gallon of freshly picked black raspberries and one gallon of freshly picked blueberries..... that should do it methinks! (refer to application picture previously posted on page two). And, although Mr Three Bowl John is unable to attend, his namesake soup is evolving for yet another taste filled year.

    Thumbs up REMEMBER.... The difference between Adversity & Adventure..... is ATTITUDE !!!!!

    .....and looking at the current weather & forecast.... you's guy's need to load up on good attitude!!! That SOUP will help!!!! That and camping under
    the Tor Bay stars... however "chilly" it may be. Just wait till later this week; you'll wish for August again! I recommend more SOUP, even if from
    Tim Horton's!! Having a HAM tomorrow in honor of the best on earth....your's in Larry's River. Can you tell I wish I were there...
    Hope everyone, regular's & newby's have a great Salty. And may the "Edge of Earth Gathering"... be of pure adventure.

    Hope all is going well for the Salty Fog riders.

    Family commitments kept me from going and I was bummed.

    But a torn retina last week made me glad that I was home and not on the road.

    Looking forward to trip reports (either the truth or lies).

    And ....

    ....when Bud couldn't go " I " made commitments, and couldn't go.... that's half truth... but if Bud went I was trying harder!
    I really hope the eye trouble is on the mend Bud... I hope you feel well enough to make your club rally in mid September.
    With the maritime weather they're "enjoying"... the trip report should be a dandy! Maybe just like last year...
    Remember though Bud; many photo's are taken under "idea" conditions... but Mary & Bob "have" the other... "adventure" shots!!!

    John,

    Salty Fog 2014 is on my calendar!

    I'm going to be in Colorado for my grandson's birthday and will miss my club's rally.

    But will be able to make the Wisconsin Dells Rally this weekend.
