Who says I don't ride in the snow. Largest snow bank I have gone through was about 6" deep last year.

Re: Off to the East Coast tomorrow

Hi Garry,

We just returned from Cape Breton on yesterday. Great weather and super scenery! If you go to Cape Breton (Cabot Trail), make sure that you stop and eat at the Acadian Restaurant in Cheticamp. The food is traditional and very good. We did 2800 miles while on the island and probably covered every road there (maybe some twice!).

Have a great trip and keep the rubber down...

Re: Off to the East Coast tomorrow

Well got to Airport at exactly 12:30. Met Es's cousin and husband at the car rental and met Es about an hour later (her flight was late). Pearson airport was a mad house because of the cancelled flights from yesterday. Now spending a night in Salmon River, Had an excellent Lobster dinner at out B&B only $22 for 1-1/4 lb fresh lobster. Tomorrow off to Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg and stay the night in Maitland Bridge in a Tee-Pee.

Later.

P.S. Gary, We will do the trail CCW, don't have alot of time for side trips as we have a long ride back to Toronto. Trying to show the family as much as possible along the way.
