free accommodations for dogs in canada
« on: August 28, 2013, 06:22:23 pm »
Hello, I have traveled in South Africa a couple times and was treated well by the bikers I met there.  Just want to show my gratitude and respect by offering free accommodations to dogs who might come by.  I live on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast, very nice rural and coastal area with wonderful roads for motorcycling.

Don't come between October and February for two reasons: one, you will freeze your ass off and two, I won't be here but will be in Africa.  I arrive in Cape Town with my son in mid-October/13 looking for a couple suitable bikes and getting paperwork sorted out.  Then we will do a day trip to the cape before heading up east coast and into Lesotho, then Zim, Moz, Malawi, Tanz Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burindi, Zambia, Nam, and back to RSA to sell our bikes and ride home after 4.5 months.
Have done previous rides to South America from Canada and also in SE Asia.  Dabbled in Africa, South Africa/Lesotho and Ethiopia.

Cheers,
Larry

Hi Larry!

Awesome ride you have planned there! Let me know when you have your route and dates sorted, and I will see if I can hook you up with free accommodation here in Zambia!

Hi Larry,

My folks live in Miramichi and my boet in Halifax. I have heard a lot of nice things about your specific neck of the woods!

Shout if you need a place to crash in Jo'burg.

Thanks for the feedback Dogs,  Might follow up on some of the kind offers for a drink or place to crash. 
Any suggestions on bikes for sale appreciated too, above and beyond what I see on this site and on Gumtree.
Looking forward to it all.

Cheers,
Larry

Some advice, I would rather buy a bike from an established Wilddog than from a stranger on Guntree  ;)

Thanks for the offer. You are welcome to give me a shout or if need anything. I stay in Nelspruit (aka Mbombela) close to the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. Let me know if you guys need a place to crash ........er, maybe not that......rather a place to sleep  :ricky: we can braai some meat and have a few beers with some local other Wilddogs.

You are welcome anytime - send me a message if needed.
