The "Big Loop"

Tomorrow begins my big annual trip from Boston and back again, looping around Lake Ontario (see map above.) This is normally a motorcycle trip, but due to the instability of the weather, such as 11'C lows in Ottawa, and possible rain, I've wimped out and will take the car instead.

This is a 2,270km (1,410 mile) trip -- which, if drove directly, non-stop, would take 26 hours. I'll be back the Wednesday after Labour Day!

I hope everyone has a good holiday!

We'll actually be spending tomorrow night in Illion, NY (just before Utica, NY) -- we stayed in Utica last month. We went to "That Place", but none of the Utica Tris were around...

I was impressed to see my face in the group photo by the billards table! I don't remember being that young... I had lots of hair back then!

If you're in Utica, see if you can figure out which one it me!

I'm afraid I have been to Utiker in several dogs' ages. My father's family hails from that belt of NY and we made swing throughs every summer on the way up to my grandparents' place in the 1000 Islands.

I will -- sorry there isn't a real "Rams' Run" this year. It really sucks for so many people...

I hope Spearhead is a good event this year! From what I hear, it's going to be VERY COLD at night -- so I'd better find a warm bear to snuggle with!

I've been making this trip since moving to Boston...

Pior to that, New York was my starting place and Ottawa was the end. Now it needs to be a closed loop.

Drive Safe.

Being with you on the first part was a great time. Folks there in Western NY are real nice. The Fair was fun, as was seeing your mom, and everyone at D & A's. Wish I could have seen Frick, Bruce, Bill, and a few others. Sorry I didn't get to talk to Johnny more. Hope you have a good stay and see you after the 10th.
