Jun 3, 2018 - Blind River, Ontario

May 30th Ok we have to admit now that we are in a more developed part of Ontario the scenery is actually less interesting. The horizon that was so majestic in Alberta and Saskatchewan has closed in and we only see to the cut line of trees on the side of the road. Not very exciting; however a couple of highlights today. We saw a traditional plough with six horses pulling a machine seeding the ground. This was not a demonstration but a working farm that we could see from the side of the road. I don’t know for sure but I expect it was...

Jul 23, 2013 - Sault Ste. Marie (ON) to Blind River (ON)

I had breakfast at the hotel and left at about 6:30 am. The forecast was for sunny but cool weather, with strong winds (30-50 km/h) from the Northeast, so I was looking forward to an easy ride. Today we went from Lake Superior to the North Channel of Lake Huron. The route had us taking Highway 17B for 27 km to Echo Bay, followed by Highway 638 for 70 km to Bruce Mines, then Highway 17 for 50 km to Blind River. Highway 638 was scenic but hilly, and it allowed us to avoid a long section of the Trans-Canada Highway which was busy and only had...

Jun 24, 2010 - Driving Across Ontario

Today was a driving day. We covered 299 Miles through blinding rain and cloudy skies. Early on we went through a deluge for about 15 minutes so dense it even kept our radar from working. Perry Sound appeared at the right time for a morning tea break, and the AAA Guide said that one could get a spectacular view from an old lookout tower on the hill there, so we stopped and I climbed the 12 flights of stairs up to the top for a panoramic view. Dave waited at the bottom, of course, but finally decided he could climb a couple of flights. Next a...

Aug 15, 2009 - day48

Day 48 This should be my last night on the road. I’m sitting in a restaurant at the motel in Blind River, Ontario, eating fish and chips and enjoying a Coors Light. I started the day very well. The sun was bright, the skies clear and the road inviting. I was about an hour down the road, chortling to myself about Terry’s report of rain when someone up there decided to teach me a lesson and take a leak on me. Rain gear, what a drag. The difference between a half-helmet, t shirt and sunglasses, and three layers of clothes inside a giant...

Aug 14, 2009 - Greg and Terry

Friday August 14th Terry was up with the birds this morning, and the birds get up just after John does as a rule, and off to get the maintenance work done on his bike. I got to sleep in a bit. It was raining and I didn’t have the motivation to gear-up and go and return a new helmet visor to the bike shop next to the Kawasaki dealer that installed my front tire. It was sort of on our way out of town so I figured that would be a good time to take care of that business. Leap now to that point in time. Jen and Erin are the two girls that work...
