    Salty Fog Riders Rally 2014: #7

    Seven. A long way from those original planning days 'way back when'. Back when we had a shell of a house being reconstructed and we began, albeit in a significantly humble sort of way, to put into action an idea; an idea to introduce riders to our part of the world. As mentioned before, the late Mr Paul Bachorz and I massaged this idea back in 2006 and this is what it started as...




    ...and by 2010 we evolved the Base Camp to this .....



    ... and then we built a barn with sleeping space in the upper floor Art Studio



    Apparently the number seven has an enormous influence in the history of religion, evolution, numerology (and numbers generally), etc. So 2014 is our number seven and we look forward to this number's significance.

    So, that being said, we are again offering the Salty Fog Riders Rally experience for another year. Officially the dates are September 1 to the 5th but we have had almost unanimous participation in our Early Arrival Day option. That would make the rally August 31 to September 5, 2014.

    Review the Salty Fog Riders Trip Reports to get a good idea about our two days in Larry's River and then a four day, 500 mile ride on beautiful Cape Breton Island.

    If interested and/or have any questions, please contact us at saltyfogriders@gmail.com. We do have limited (20) so please let us know as soon as you can. Information regarding funds and itinerary will be posted soon.

    Stay tuned for more info!

    As mentioned earlier, the Salty Fog Riders Rally, a unique 'rolling rally' - visiting and touring northeast Nova Scotia, is happening again during the last days of Summer. Costs are currently being finalized and revised registration forms will be available by the end of June.

    Stay tuned for more information regarding route, venues, food (!!) and accommodation options. Until then the following two links will give you a reasonable view of what to expect.

    Last year one of our participants said that next time (aka 2014) he wanted to visit the giant (about 50ft) fiddle in Sydney. So, that's what we'll put on the agenda this year. Opportunity for group and individual photo-ops.

    Over the next couple of days we will... finally... be in a position to be posting more information about the 2014 Salty Fog Riders Rally. If you have followed the links posted earlier then you have a good idea about the content of our little rolling rally. Camping is free at our Larry's River Base Camp with bed roll options in Mary's art studio on the second level of our barn. The following four days on the road include three excellent campsite locations. As well, we have been in discussions with two campgrounds regarding cabin rentals with tenting on those sites. Those options will be presented to intended participants by email. For now, the following costs are in place for this year.




    NEXT: The abundant food menu for those joining us in Larry's River will be posted next. Our previous ride reports have elaborated on the food but we will slide in a few reminder pictures with the menu outline. Stay tuned!

    Just noticed a special rate for motorcycles on the Portland-Yarmouth ferry (http://novastarcruises.com/stored/motorcycle-week/) Although is says "Low Rider Rate" They do mean all motorcycles. The week of our rally corresponds to the Wharf Rat Rally week in Digby so maybe this is of interest to some.

    While camping in Louisbourg, we venture up to the Louisbourg Playhouse for a musical theater venue. It changes each year and gives the visitor an opportunity to listen to the music and story-telling that is a special magic of Cape Breton Island. This year the show deals with the challenges of coal mining work and the struggles to survive in a 'company town'. A description of this show, on Tuesday September 2nd, is at this site http://www.whatsgoinon.ca/13613/#.U-p_QKhdXKM Come and enjoy!! Still room available. - Bob

    ....and following the theater presentation, a connecting experience can be a tour of the mine in Glace Bay. We did this a few years back and consider it a memorable learning experience. This is the link to the museum and tour:

    Hope you can make it, John, and Mara too! Good memories, even if you were on a Harley the first time!

    ...In your care; she will be dispatching me solo this year! I will owe her... again.
    How do you feel about that $50 ferry one way?
    I'm looking to finally see Peggy's Cove & Halifax... and to avoid US Labor Day weekend traffic.

    The owner of the Meat Cove Campground has promised us the cliff-side flat camping spot in front of the Chowder Hut (the best location in the place). It has most often been our reserved spot ...... except for last year. However, we are now back on sacred ground and ready for campfires and great photo op's. Still some last minute space and some time to join in.....
