    Default Southern ON - Day trail run - Jul 8

    Hi folks,


    My apologies on this being posted so late, had an insane couple weeks at work. As previously chatted with a few of you, will be doing a day run to 1 or 2 trails in the Bobcaygeon/Minden area this Saturday July 8. This is about 2 hours drive north east of Toronto, even closer from Barrie and our northern friends.


    Would be leaving at 8am from downtown Toronto, anyone in other areas we can meet up along the way or in Bobcaygeon.


    Meeting point before the trail: There's a Tim Hortons in town: 101 East Street S, Bobcaygeon.


    The first trail will be stock capable (had a stock Subaru Outback run it successfully), though it doesn't come without it's challenges to stay interesting! There is water to cross and small rocks to climb. You must be comfortable with that before heading out. Takes about 2 hours depending on group speed and we can all have lunch as a group on the trail.


    If we manage to complete it in decent time, we can go to a 2nd trail as well, which will likely be more exploratory to see how far we can make it down. Or can turn back towards Toronto at that time.


    If you will be joining please post here or PM me. A few of you already have my cell # and I have yours, for anyone else attending can you please PM me your cell # so we can get in touch day off.

    Note to mods, sorry if this is in wrong subforum, figured it's not really an overland plan so thought this might be best place to post.


    Cheers!

    We have 4 vehicles confirmed + 2 maybes for the day, so looks like we should have a fun little trip! Anyone else interested, do let me know

    Thanks to everyone that came out! We had an awesome Saturday out in the Five Points/Bobcaygeon area, completing 3 trails with a very cool collection of vehicles.

    Here are a few pictures from that day.

    Let's have the pictures speak for themselves (videos to come as I upload to YouTube).






    We did have a mishap, but that's a part of this life and through good teamwork and preparedness (recovery gear), we all got out safe and able to complete the rest of the day's trails.





    Halfway point was stopping for a wonderful lunch on Picard Lake.





    And yes, there is still a massive washout on the fireroad leading to Crystal Lake.



    Obligatory shot with Roaming Rally 2017 toque, OLC tag, and cool chick driving
