I have this rally on my calendar and hope to attend! Alexandria Bay is a nice spot, and September is a great time of year. First frost should have passed and mornings will be nippy. You are minutes from our Northern Neighbors in Ontario. Remember passports, eh? Just renewed mine.

I was raised 20 miles from A Bay in Philadelphia. It is next to Fort Drum, a place so cold the Army moved their winter training there from Alaska years ago. Drum gets about 130" of snow a year.

About 20 some years ago A Bay became the northern terminus for many snowbirds, wingless types. Many may have flocked South by rally time?

A little news re Jefferson County and the "North Country" can be found at

A nice tour is that of Boldt Castle on Heart Island.  http://www.boldtcastle.com/visitorinfo/

Ogdensburg, NY used to be home to the Ogdensburg Insane Asylum, later called the St. Lawrence Hospital.

Sorry, there are no tours there (as there are at the Trans Allegheny Insane Asylum in WV. When we were kids, if we misbehaved, parents would threated to send us to "Ogdensburg". We were golden, of course.

My cousin and her husband, and my two babysitters!! still live up there, very close to Philadelphia. Another great reason to visit. And there are many great cheese factories. This was once a BIG dairy area.

Don't look for spiraling mountain roads in these west counties (see the Adirondacks) but the back roads through farm country are pretty.

Have a safe ride to A Bay. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for your great contribution to this thread. 

I used to camp at Wellesley island when I was a kid.  I have many fond memories of the area.

It is a beautiful area, and I hope you are able to make the rally.

Well, the nice lady at Captain Thompson's said I was the first one to register!

Did my rallye registration as well. This is the closest one to Montreal to date! First time I don't ride half a day or longer to get there!

Hope to see a lot of the usual suspects there!

Cheers!
