    Looks great, but it also looks like you will need to wash the bike :D

    We had quite a bit of rain this Spring, but by August I"m sure the mud holes will be a bit more dried up. The water crossings were not too hard, but I'm always scared about the potential of watering out. Luckily that didn't happen. Those beavers like to challenge us by making dams in the middle of our riding trail allowing the water to pool up in the worst areas.

    Rock Hound Rally / Trail Ride Update!

    LOCATION START AND ACCOMMODATIONS HAVE CHANGED!!!

    The Rock Hound Rally 2013 will now be hosted out of the Loon's Call Campground and Cottage Resort on Marble Lake close to Cloyne Ontario Canada.
    www.loonscall.ca

    This facility has cottages, tent and full service trailer camping. Make your reservations at Loons Call by calling them directly at 1-866-765-4756.
    There will be a corn roast on the Saturday night, or the Marble Lake resort restaurant (2 doors down) will have a roast beef supper and full menu available.
    The Event registration is on-line at www.rallyconnex.com/rockhound.html

    Note: We have been getting calls from people who want a dualsport tour. We can arrange this as well. There are lots of twisty, scenic back roads in the area that we can make a very nice dualsport route.

    The Rock Hound Rally is an aggressive course consisting of rock and wooded terrain. We use as little road as possible to link all the trails together.

    It still seems a bit too far from my location, but I hope your event is a success.

    I'm a bit perplexed why this thread is not getting more attention from people near you.

    Ya, it's going to be interesting to see if any husqvarnas show up. We had some cafe husky groupies at our event last year that came from Upper New York to attend. Our local riding group is pretty small in Southern Ontario. We will see.
    In the mean time... here is the "Rock Hound" photo of the day... We had a blast working on the trails and riding on the weekend...t
    esting out all the bridges and the water levels are looking great!
