For those in the East you can meet us at Timmies at Victoria Park just north of the 401 at 9:30
Let us know if you are coming so we can let the restaurant know. Please bring FRS radios if you have them.

I really would have enjoyed the trip - unfortunately Saturday is always a work day - look forward to eventually meeting up one day - Vic Park/401 is just around the corner from me.

Adam, are you a member of Costco? I would get the Motorola GMRS radios that they sell at costco.

Just make sure they are GMRS radios and NOT FRS. Reason is that GMRS radios have sub-channels and the FRS radios, do not. We are always on channel 6 - sub-channel 5.

have fun. I will be doing something similar in October. I will be taking mine to the smoky mountains. I have been there before, but this will be the first in the kia. I plan on running the blue ridge parkway, and some other side roads. I will probably go to cades cove too. I don't know about parsons branch road yet, but I think it will do it. its a gravel back road, but its hard packed and well maintained. shoot, if my focus will do it, I know the kia will.

You could do one of two things. I just got mine from costco, and they only have the 3 pack for 69.99 plus tax. If you would like, I could let you borrow one for the day , just give me a heads up and ill bring the extra ones.

I recommend the pair on the left....the yellow ones. Those are the same that I have.

I think one of our members on SCO on FB was saying that he purchased the same radios recently and they were cheaper than what they show. I think he paid something like $42, but that was a couple weeks ago.
Hey Marc,

I went out last night to buy a set of GMRS radios, later to find out they don't support 'private codes' (sub-channels). I'm not sure I'll have the time to make it out tonight to buy another set, do you have one I can borrow for the day?

Sorry guys, I don't think I'll be making it anymore. I had a brutal day at the office and things have spilled over onto my Saturday. Enjoy the cruise.

Here’s an early photo of some of the EastEnders meeting at Timmies this morning.



Although I couldn’t make the cruise was able to run out for 30 minutes to meet with them - great bunch of guys and gals - would have loved breaking bread with them.

Great to put a face to the name Jonathan. Looks like Marc has a styling rival now. Look at you rockin' the red shoe-laces :encouragement:
Couldn't make it today, but hope to meet you soon.

Didn't make it <sigh> , in part because I didn't check to see what's coming up but mostly because I was too busy..........................picking up this little beauty.
