This is just a feeler to see how many people would be intereseted in this type of trip.

We would leave Fri. Aug. 7 early in am say 8:00am- 8:30am depending upon pick-ups for car poolers. We would return fairly late on Sun. Aug 9 evening approx 11:00pm.

I am looking into a few accomodations:

1) In Tobermory with 3 double beds per room or 2 beds per room but cot could be added to that room. Both with 3 people sharing accomodations it would be approx $83.00- $86.00 per person for both nights. If only 2 share the 2 bed room it would be around $106.00 per person for both nights. they have a contenental Breakfast in am. We could bring coolers for lunches (sandwiches etc) to help save money and then just eat dinner at night. Rooms have a/c and a small fridge in the rooms. They have 2 rooms only with the 3 bed accomodation one on lower level and other above that room on second floor. -- Availability is there.

2) About 15- 20 minutes south of Tobermory rooms with 2 double beds and one pullout double sofa bed and a kitchenette. So if 3 people share these rooms the cost would be approx $96.00 per person for both nights. Now with these rooms having the kitchenette there is the option to bring food and cook dinner every night. Make sandwiches for lunch and make quick to go breakfasts in am. -- Still awaiting availability on this location.

Now accomodations would have to be reserved so once it is decided who is SERIOUSLY ATTENDING we can work out room buddies.

I'm trying to keep the costs as low as possible as these trips can get expensive as we still have to factor in the gas which will be at least 2 full tanks of gas or so shared between car poolers.

*Now this is just a feeler, but i am looking for people who are very serious about this trip and are committed to go and not change their minds.*

Once things get more decisive will move this to an Official Outing. Please select which type of accomodation you would prefer in the above boxes. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

** both locations above also have single rooms for those not wishing to share accomodations the Kitchenette place would be around $275.00 for the 2 days. I don't have the price for the other place, but they have rooms with only a king or only a queen bed in them.**

I have a commitment on the Saturday of that weekend in Shelburne, which is on the way to Tobermory. I would still like to come up for Saturday evening and Sunday though.

I'm definitely interested, but won't be around when plans are being made, so email me, Maureen! Might also have a friend who is interested, but will get back to you on that. ;)

I'd like to go. I can get a ride back with Janet but would need a ride there. I live at Lakeshore/Hwy#10 area, but could meet anyone at 401/Hwy#10 (Hurontario). I am also a good navigator/map reader if one is needed and can help share gas expenses. If anyone has room, please let me know. You can call me at 416-720-9745. I am also an early riser & could be ready as early as you want.
