    I thank you for the most generous offer. My schedule this year may require some riding pre-soiree. July may not work as well for me this season but firm dates are not something I set.

    I am supposed to be on the mainland at that time... but, that may fall thru. Yes Trout River is a great camp ground and the Seascape? in town is a good restaurant to hit at least once over the weekend.

    So far...

    HunterSon - Site 12 - Fri & Sat
    versys Rob - Site 13 - Fri & Sat
    fortech - Site 14 - Fri & Sat
    Scooter - Site 16 - Fri & Sat (I think site 16 was the same as I had last year with Pizzaman & HunterSon)

    FYI - During the reservation process, you can see pictures of the sites.
    FYI - Also during reservation process, I noted...
    "Gros Morne has an alcohol ban in effect from 20-May-17 to 30-Jun-17 inclusive. Possession and consumption of alcohol is prohibited during this time period."

    Guess we'll have to wait until midnight, July 01 !!

    I know... if you don't visit the site regularly, it's difficult to read every entry to find out the most recent status of what's going on.
    Anyway the campground is Trout River in Gros Morne. I realize that's quite the hump from St. John's, so hope you folks from the city can make it.
    Four of us have reserved two nights.

    June 30 - Friday - Arrive
    July 01 - Saturday - Explore
    July 02 - Sunday - Depart

    Unfortunately I can't make it this year, I was really looking forward to riding on the West Coast too. :( Have fun and post some pics.

    Any thoughts on where to ride on Saturday? Lots of On and Off Road riding to do.

    Lomond Sink Hole is a must during the weekend for anyone who hasn't been.

    Lomond sink hole sounds good. I still want to get to Serpentine Lake.

    What are everyones plans for after the weekend? I have two weeks to explore the island but a few have mentioned doing the trans Labrador. I could do that too but I have a max range of 350 km and would need someone to carry a few litres of fuel for me on the longer legs of the trip.

    If you guys do TLH after the soiree, I just might have to do again even though I swore I wouldn't.
    Another option is riding back to Maine with Pizzaman... depends on his plans.

    I don't have any plans firmed up yet as I've been very busy lately.

    I'm up for anything really and will likely follow the masses for awhile but may break out on a solo venture for a few days. Dunno. Not ruling out the TLH just yet either
