    I remember driving much of this route with my daughter on the way to Dalhousie University in Halifax. It would be great to do on the bike too!

    Question

    Great ride report.

    Possibly a little off topic and I'll apologise if this has been discussed already - but what is the orange and black device mounted behind the screen?

    Hi Mark, that is a Satellite GPS Messenger; mine is one of the original SPOT Personal Tracker and they have updated models from this out there. It drops breadcrumbs along the way and there is a website that one can give access to others to follow along. There are a couple of buttons to press that send pre-programmed text/email messages such as 'I'm okay' or a custom message to specific numbers and/or email addresses that you input. There is also an 'SOS' function for emergencies. I have read that for emergency and especially off road use a PLB device is better suited. Details on SPOT can be found here: http://findmespot.ca/SPOTOFFER/lande...REEHoliday2015

    Great Trip Report!

    Hello Ken;
    Fantastic Trip Report and Great Photography, Terry & I have done many of the same roads over the years.

    Hope you can make it to the MOA National to the Das Rally this year in Hamburg NY, a whopping 40.2 miles from our house.

    Thanks that for the comments Darryl. I may end up at the National again this year and am in the planning process of a trip to southern California and over to Corpus Christi so could head up to NY on my way home...

    Edit -> Will not be at the National this year so hope to hear from the SFRR alumni of the goings on afterward.
