Re: Ontario to CCR 2011

Have never attended but seems to be a great event. What are the registration costs and timing of your departure? I would assume a two to three day ride one-way.

Re: Ontario to CCR 2011

We're probably going Garry, we're in Thunder Bay so will be coming around the west side of L Superior. Probably touring to California and up the Pacific coast after CCR. This would be our 2nd.

I suspect there will be several of us traveling that leg from St. Louis to Boise and from KC to Boise. Not sure I'll have a flag and not sure I'll be flyin' but I'll definitely be moving at a good clip.

Hey Gary,

Trust you are enjoying the wild, wild west...

Sorry to say I will not be making it this year after all but I know it will be a great time. Hopefully we can team up for next year's CCR.

Best regards,

Weather was great except the first day we arrived, it was 35c and very hot. the rest of the time it cooled down. didn't have a drop of rain the whole time. Mountain passes were ok, but lots of traffic on Logans pass as it was the long weekend. pass is closed mon-thurs for construction, open on the weekends.

Have a great time there. only Cops we saw were coming home in Alberta.

Re: Ontario to CCR 2011

Thanks Gary for the heads up on Logan...we did that a few years ago & the construction wasn't too bad but the slow traffic was something else. So we decided to go around Glacier Park & then head South from there. Hopefully it won't be too hot.
