Towing in the Autumn

This time of the year is our favorite time to get out on the road with trailer in tow.

This image was taken a few years ago driving along the north shore of Lake Superior. Anyone else got some pics of their fall travels they want to share?

We are currently camped at Fort Wilkens SP at Copper Harbor in the UP of Michigan .The trees are just starting to change colors and the temperature has rebounded to a balmy 61 Deg this afternoon. I have some beautiful pictures of the harbor on my phone but unfortunately we do not have cell phone service at this time. Will try to send them when and if we get service

I do love a day like in this pic. Very Nice. We've got to get up that way soon.

W, that picture, and the location remind me of the Gordon Lightfoot song about the Edmund Fitzgerald and the big lake they call Gitche Gumee. Nice!

Tom... we are of the same mindset. You can't help but think of that song and the chilling story when you drive along that lake at this time of the year.

Understand Steve. After the Canadian labor day the summer crowds disappear. It is a special place. My sis travels the world but doesn't get what we see and experience in our own back yard.

My daughter and SIL lived on the other side of the lake, in Marquette MI for almost 20 years. They just moved when he took a job in the Clearwater / St Pete area this year, so our visits will be much warmer now. I'll miss it. I deer hunt in the U.P. every year, so I'll still have that. The skies often look like your picture on the other side of the lake too.

I'll play. Here's a couple interesting Fall shots from the vehicle, but before we had a trailer. (Don't hate me.) The first one is at White Sands Missile Range in NM. My brain said snow, but it's sand. The second one is in Seney National Wildlife Preserve in MI's Upper Peninsula. That IS snow.

Also from a few years ago, this picture from the Blueridge Parkway. Autumn is a nice time of year to travel that road.

This was the sight before me as I cooked in our campsite earlier this week. The fall colours were delightful at Saskatchewan's newest Provincial Park - Great Blue Heron. It was so peaceful too only a few other couples camping there and one family with a couple of well behaved kids.

Some forum members are still travelling the highways.

Here is another pic from our late season travels in northern Ontario.

I know what you mean Glenn.

That high performance Nissan V6 has a constant yearning to be wound up to red line. But continued use of the cruise control keeps her within the speed limit.

Smile The world if full of holes

"What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?"

When the cheese is gone, the hole is still there, only you can't see it. Just like a soap bubble that pops. The bubble is still there, only the soap is gone.

BTW That is what makes the world hole-y.

Actually, this is what I was referring to:

Improving Road Safety In Ontario

Province Introducing New Legislation to Keep Roads Safe

March 17, 2014 2:00 P.M. Ministry of Transportation

Ontario is introducing legislation today to help reduce collisions, injuries and fatalities on the province's roads and highways and keep them among the safest in North America.
If passed, the proposed Keeping Ontario's Roads Safe Act and supporting amendments to the Highway Traffic Act will make highways and roads safer by:
  • Increasing fines for distracted driving from a range of $60 - $500 to a range of $300 - $1,000 and assigning three demerit points upon conviction

Sounds more like a bill to keep Ontario's coffers full.

OK, OK, I'm sorry Glen...... I get it.

My BH in the passenger seat reached over with the Dicam and took the pic. All is well. Safety a priority.
PS.. I was trained in Law Enforcement and have a high regard for the law.

We had a proposal in IllAnnoy to double or triple traffic fines(forget which), but the panel responsible for setting fines decided that if you raise fines too high, it would start to cut revenue, so they settled on a 50% increase!
Like giving booze to an alcoholic, the state will always take as much power or money as it can, lick its chops, and look around for more!

Good Luck with your "Keeping Ontario's Coffers Full Act"

Even with $10,000 fines and jail time for DUI it is still only teetotalers who never drive drunk.
We still sell all the "DUI bicycles" I can collect, repair and deliver.
