Huricane Helen and I had such a busy summer that, unfortunately, we had to forego organizing SNOB III in 2012.

(For those who don't know, SNOB stands for Somewhere North Of the Border and it's the most fun on two wheels you can have in the northeast. And you stomach will thank you, as well...)

However, the third iteration of SNOB will happen, between Friday, August 2 and Monday, August 5 2013!

On our to do list:

  • Finalize the menu (the theme is picked, though)
  • Update the website
  • Map out an incredible tri-state loop (VT, NH and MA MI MN whatever-the-abbreviation-for-Maine-is
  • Update my sig line below...


See you all in August in Sutton, Qc!

SNOB III is definitely on my radar this year.  

Taking one or two days of vacation time should not be an issue.

If I go, I'll show up with a 2013 R1200RT that is on order.

If you recall I left early from SNOT ll or lll to meet my daughters new boyfriend, some French guy. I subsequently missed another SNOT or SNOB when the 2 of them came from France for a visit. This year I return July 31 from a visit to see them and Marcel ( pictured below). I hope to make it on the Monster with a couple of City of Bones Crew Tee-shirts for any fans who might attend.

Bonjour J-F, Fred et al.
Emerging from my slumber. I'm hoping I can make it out there, actually I don't see too much preventing me as of now.
I understand Fred will be garbed in beret and leather goggles on that naked beast. He can ride in my wake to reduce the neck beating.
Look forward to seeing y'all. (Y'All? Sorry, I meant "tout le monde")

Routes for SNOB III
Saturday: head to the US of A and hug the border in northern VT, NH (through Dixville Notch), Route 16 north (this time...) to Maine and return through QC, making a stop at Lac Mégantic. Not for  disaster porn, but these folks need thre tourists' dollars. Maybe drop off a donation for the red cross. Check with Acadian Rider regarding tax receipts.

Sunday: to be figured out the day before after supper. Traditionnaly we go south, to accomodate our American friends who don't have an extended weekend.

Note for those slabbing it from where the Stanley Cups lives, not because there's a good hockey team there, but because that's where the Hall of Fame is located...

There's a new highway that allows you to go around the Island of Montreal, called Autoroute 30. Two new bridges and a dollar-something toll. See http://a30express.com/en. It spits you out of Autoroute 10, or you can take 104 through St. Jean all the way to Cowansville.

The exit for the new highway is East of the exit for the scenic route, on 201 South and 202 East.

Travel note no. 2:
From the Autoroute 10, take exit 74. Exit 68 (which says "Sutton" and route 139 South) has a closed bridge on 139, north of Cowansville.

Hello everybody.

Here's my plan.  

Arrival on Friday late afternoon.  

Ride with the group Saturday.  

Start with the group Sunday morning and split during the day to head home.  Where I split depends on where the group will be heading that day.

PM sent to J.-F.  

P.S. Jimmy, don't forget a spark plug wrench.   Lol

I am glad to see the rally live on!  I'm craving a ride up that way and may have to keep an eye out for SNOB IV next year.  I don't have enough time to take off this year as I have a big trip planned out west in early Oct.

Update on the toll for the new bridge in Valleyfield. (BTW, it doesn't show up on Garmin's City Navigator North America 2013)

Quote
Toll per drive-through

The toll is determined by the number of axles and vehicle class.
 
Class 1 vehicle    $0.75/axle


I guess you can save the cost of a donut at Jimmy's if you wheelie through...

Important: Corbeau's email might be down...

Turns out that my contract with my web hosts terminates on July 31st (probably at 11:59 pm). I have a new one already organized but I slept on the switch and didn't transfer the DNS in time. So I'm letting grandcorbeau.com lapse, hope no one buys it in the meantime and re-registering it again to my name on Aug. 1st. (Really hope I won't get screwed by a bot hogging lapsed domains... that would hurt.)

I'll need to set up my different aliases (jfb, info, SNOB, corbeau... @grandcorbeau.com) probably early Thursday as well.

Should your email message bounce, try patrouilleursutton      over on gmail  

Thanks

(I'll delete this post once everything is back to normal...)

Excellent.  

I'll wait 'til tomorrow morning just before I leave to decide the route I'm taking to get to Sutton.  My preferred route was to go through the US to get there but I may have to stay in Canada if I want to stay dryer.  

Bought some new rain gear yesterday (REV'IT) which may help scare the rain away.   Bigsmile

Thanks to J-F and Helen for hosting this meet again this year!!!  Judy and I had a great time visiting with everyone in Sutton, Good company, riding, and Helen kept us well fed (as usual).  Even the weather co-operated for the most part. We didn't get rained on til the ride home, luckily it broke south of Franconia Notch. We were able to stop at a family members condo in Woodstock, NH, where I could put my clothes and allegedly water-proof Olympia Phantom  in the dryer to get the second half of the trip home done warm and dry. Hopefully, we'll see you soon.  Thumbsup Thumbsup Thumbsup

Thanks to J.-F. and Helen for organizing and hosting yet another meet.   We'll have to go back next year to see if Tucker is a "Bon chien".    

Jimmy, did the cops get you yet for stealing that bike?   Lol
 
Got home @ 1:00PM today after a sleep in Edmundston NB last night where I stopped to see an old friend that I had not seen since 2007 when I went to SNOT II.  

Today was a non-stop 430 km ride with the first half in and out of the rain.  Yesterday, the first half of the 600+ kms was also done in and out of the rain.   Crazy  

Having said that, it was nice to have a rain free ride Saturday with everybody.   Bigok
