That's for sure Jay. That is the reason we travel the north shore of Superior area in September. No ice, no black flies, but the weather can get nasty.

You're right - its pretty tough to beat a fall road trip - the colours are on right now and its driving us nuts that the Bambi is parked in the driveway - we've got a couple projects on the go so it looking like its going to have to stay there ...... maybe Thanksgiving .....

..... that is not to say we don't enjoy our spring outings ..... having lived in Northern Ontario for the lions share of my life I guess we've learned to comfortably live with (or around) the lowly Black Fly ......
