Hey Everyone,

I am planning the Maple-in-the-County cruise again for the end of this month. For those who did it last year thanks for coming and helping make it a great day! Its a bit of a hike but well worth it as we get tostretch our legs and enjoy some fresh country air with a little maple syrup to sweeten your tastebuds.

Stay warm on the rest of your adventures with a selection of winter alpaca wear available for purchase. PS: Don\'t forget the camera.

I will be making arrangements for each of the destinations as soon as i have an idea of numbers.

Do keep in mind that it is still going to be cold, so dress for the weather.

Bring your walkies/2-ways so we can keep in touch (channel 7-21)

Bring your appetite as there will be edibles along the way.

This is an ALL DAY event, so plan accordingly.

We will be starting in Newcastle like last year, in the carpool parking lot right off the Mill St. exit. I would like to be on the road for 10am. There is fuel and a Timmies right around the corner for those who need a top up or a pit stop prior to setting off.

Hopefully I havent missed anything, but if there are any questions feel free to ask.

Adam

Thanks for everyone who came out to a beautiful sunny day!!!
So fantastic to meet Charlotte but too bad she had to leave early.
Everything went off without a hitch and I hope everyone got home alright.
As with last year, I tried a few new things. Some worked, some didnt, and others were perfect. I would love any feedback anyone had so that when I do this again next year it will be even greater!

Thanks again for everyones attendance, and see you all at the rattler!!!

Cam, great shots! dont forget to submit them for the calendar for next year.
