    Its difficult to discern where this rally taking place. Not until the end of the info page does it even mention a region.

    Ontario apparently (which seems obvious now I look at deadly99's location however...).

    The rally takes place in Eastern Ontario (Ottawa area).



    Some cool trucks signed up like a 1984 Bombardier Iltis, a Unimog and some Defenders. Jeeps, Landcruisers, etc as well. 55+ motorcycles.

    We intend to keep registration open for another few weeks at which point we need to stop taking entries as we need to order swag, decals, etc and confirm with the places we'll be staying our numbers.

    Hope to see some of you in May

    75+ bikes registered and a bunch of trucks...looks like a full house again thin year. A real mix of trucks, Landrover Defenders, Jeeps, Mid Size trucks, a Fuso, a Unimog, sone Toyotas, etc. A Bombardier Itino is registered....I'm curious to see it.

    If anyone else is on the fence, we're close to closing the registration for this year.

    Some cool trails and scenic roads in the Canadian backcountry, sitting around a campfire in the evening with a hundred like minded folks....should be a fun few days

    Well we have reached our capacity of trucks and bikes. Aside from a few folks who have contacted us already, registration is now closed.

    We're looking forward to meeting everyone and having some fun on the trails and around the campfire.

    We'll be sure to update this thread with some photos after the rally is completed.

    Cya in May

    120 Bikes and 25 trucks registered. Email will be sent this week with gps files and other important information.

    Some fun double track roads....





    The pucker factor as you begin this water crossing is justified....







    Then just as you think it must be almost over it turns into this....




    Cya soon
    Ted
