West Montrose Ontario to Sudbury Ontario

We were up and had the trailer torn down and everything packed by 7:10 AM. It was a little easier because I had dismantled and stowed the awning and poles before supper yesterday when everything was nice and dry. Next, we had to re-open the trailer so I could get my sunglasses out of my vest.

We had coffee and toast in the big tent, talking to friends and not really wanting to leave for the last time. Finally, about 10:00, we got underway under blue skies. The weather was exceptionally good for the final hurrah.

We stopped at Derek Roberts in Waubaushene for fuel and a Subway sandwich. We were going to stop again at the excellent chip stand in Pointe Au Barile, but it was just too crowded so we continued on home. It was still sunny and 25C when we pulled into the driveway about 3:00 PM.

Thus endeth a great Labour Day tradition. Heather noted that all she has ever known on that weekend was Cyclefest, especially considering their first attendance was when Sandy was pregnant with her and Kim. No matter what we do, it will be different. Thanks to all the people over all the years who helped organize the rallies so we would have a place to go and meet our friends.
