It actually snowed in central the day after he made it to St. John’s. Tough old bird, that he is.
Miscou Island was a good ride through tidal marshes and windy landscapes, ending at Miscou light. Notice the cables keeping it from flying away!
Did anyone have any thoughts on the 2019 RTR Rally/Soiree?
I was wondering just yesterday what plans might be in the works...
I’m going to be on the Rock in August this year. Looking forward to touring the east side of the island. The Canada day Soirée is a good time, but Placentia boat and the east coast might work out better for me. Phillips Cafe/bakery in Jerseyville is not to be missed.
The Skibum Soiree might be going second last weekend in August
Horizons Unlimited in Gros Morne, Aug 14-17. Perhaps a good way to start or end my 2 week vacation. I will let Pizzaman know and perhaps he will take it in as well.
crap. Yes Horizons Unlimited in Gros Morne is 2020. Oh well, something to look forward to for next year's rtr rally perhaps??
HORIZONS UNLIMITED ANNOUNCES NEWFOUNDLAND EVENT
APRIL 24, 2019 CMG STAFF 1 COMMENT
Horizons Unlimited is finally returning to the Atlantic coast, and this time, they’re going wayyyyyyy far east.
The motorcycle travel-focused organization has announced an event based in Newfoundland, at Killdevil Camp and Conference Centre, on August 11-14 of next summer.
While it may seem a bit early to talk about events in 2020, it’s also true that Newfoundland is pretty far off the beaten track, so in this case, a bit of forward planning is probably good, especially as you’ll have to factor in a couple of ferry crossings.
The HU website has few details on the event—no speaker list, and it isn’t clear if it’s just a travelers’ meeting, or a riding event, or what. Presumably, more details are coming.
However, given the event’s location in western Newfoundland, handy to Gros Morne National Park, the riding in the area is indeed fantastic. Even if there’s no official moto-action built into the schedule, you’d be silly to pass up the chance to explore one of Canada’s least-known motorcycle playgrounds.
Also, considering the location in western Newfoundland, this event could easily tack onto a tour of the Trans Labrador Highway. It’s basically en route if you’re entering or leaving Labrador by the Blanc Sablon ferry.
For more information, you can contact HU organizers directly through their website.
Any plans for RTR 2019? August?
August would work for me, provided there’s no snow ❄️.
