For those not doing Hondy Indy weekend....or not on vacation....
Come join me to check out the twisty back roads of the Muskoka before the big drive scheduled sometime in August or September TBD.

We will be using last years map and add a few more roads.
Although its a pre-drive it is still a full day cruise and it will be fun to explore the excellent scenery, twisty windy back roads and roller coaster hills Muskoka has to offer.

Its about 1hr drive to Barrie so I'm waiting for a few people to chime in.
There will be possibly a central pre-meet and Markham pre-meet.
So I'm meetng a few folks from Markham and heading up there with a bunch. Take a nice fun route up to Barrie.
There might be another pre-meet at Collossus @ 400 and they will go up to Barrie in a bunch.
I will post those locations and times when I get them.

Anybody here want to lead the pre-meet in Vaughan at Collossus @ 400 and then head up to Barrie to the meet point? Beev??? Will you be taking your Alfa?

So far a number p-cars, Maserati, Lotus, GTR, BMW. Should be a fun jaunt.

So my shoulder reconstruction is healing well with rehab and I took the Esprit for a test drive today as I can now reach the steering wheel with the left arm (barely)


drive went well so I plan on coming


Bringing one of these...not sure which one just yet

I would suggest to people who come out to the drives to pick up a Walkie Talkie GMRS unit.
They are relatively cheap and helps in the communication to steer people in the right way.
They start at $40 for a pair.

GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) | Canadian Tire


Long term weather forecast looks promising.
Picked my self up a pair of 2-way radios for $40 at Cdn Tire. Next time I have some time off I look forward to putting them to good use.
