Calabogie 3 Day Road Trip, July 13-15

Guys Iím heading up to Calabogie (near Ottawa) for the July 13-15 weekend, driving up on some fun roads on Friday, doing a track day with a bunch of BMW guys on Saturday, and driving home on more fun roads Sunday. Weíve got a special deal at for the CMP Lapping, $300 for the day.

As usual I will be driving interesting back roads getting there on Friday and home on Sunday, so even if you donít want to drive the track on Saturday, there is still great fun to be had getting there and back home. Saturday you can either drive the track, watch, or relax on the beach.

I've tentatively booked two cottages for the weekend, each cottage has three bedrooms, and there is a pull-out in the living room if you want to share accommodations. Otherwise there are many places to stay in and around Calabogie, but book early as things fill up fast during CMP weekends.

Plan would be to leave Toronto around 10am on Friday July 13, stopping somewhere for lunch, and arriving in Calabogie by 6pm. Mostly deserted back roads all the way once we get out of the populated areas, pace will be brisk but not so fast that we risk getting cars impounded. I will provide a GPS route and printed maps so you can drive at your own pace too.

Let me know if any of you are interested in joining either for part of or the whole weekend, and if you want to drive the track on Saturday or not.

Mike, these dates would 95% work for me! (Just need to confirm boss isn't planning same weekend off) I would love to do the drive there and back. Thanks for organizing!

Have you tentatively booked those cottages so that, say, 3-4 people/ couples could share the costs of one? If so, would you have more info on them?

Yes the two cottages are reserved in my name. They cost $240 each per night including taxes.

Each cottage has three bedrooms, and each bedroom has two beds. There is also a pullout couch in the living room which could act as a 4th bedroom. So we can easily sleep 7-8 people, or 3-4 couples in each cottage. We have a full kitchen and a deck with BBQ out back, so could be a lot of fun.

So yes, the idea would be that we all share in the cost of the cottage, the more people we get the less expensive it will be for everyone.

Great idea. I'd be willing to share in the cost of a cottage (doesn't matter how many people). Even at $120 per night + taxes (even if there's only two couples per cottage), that's a great deal.

p.s. Confirmed I'm not on call that weekend, so my chances have climbed to 99%! Submitting my official day off request Monday.

EDITED to add: I know you guys like to drive at a nice clip. So I'd let you guys go ahead so you wouldn't feel any need to wait up for me, and I'll meet you all there. The back-roads route would be invaluable for me, thanks.

I also know how to convert googlemaps maps into Garmin ones, so even a link to a route you've planned out in Googlemaps would be all that I'd need.

Thanks again Mike!

Hey, just want to confirm accommodations at the two cottages I booked in Calabogie for July 13-15, 2012. With all the interest, I need to confirm who is taking which bed / bedroom to give those who I cannot fit into the cottages an opportunity to find alternative accommodations.

Each cottage has three bedrooms, and each of these bedrooms has either one or two single beds. There is also a queen pullout in the living room. Check out this link for more details, pictures, etc:

http://www.calabogie.com/accommodati...-cottages.html

Price for the cottages are $240/each/night including tax. Since there are four sleeping areas (including the pullout), the cost for each would be $60/night. If you share a room with another person, your cost each drops to only $30/night.

In order to secure your spot in the cottage, please send me $120 (2 nights @ $60/ea) via Interac e-Transfer or other electronic money transfer method. PM me first so I can give you my email address!! We have to assume everyone pays $120 for now, and if someone is willing to share a room with you, then I would refund you $60/each. With only seven sleeping areas up for grabs (I have one), the sooner you send me payment, the sooner you can be assured you have a place to sleep. Accommodations can fill up quickly in Calabogie, hence I booked these cottages well in advance. Also I do not want to get stuck paying for two cottages if not everybody shows, so if I do not get enough payments up front, I will cancel the second cottage on July 5th.

Thanks, I look forward to this weekend, should be a blast!

Got the day off and was looking forward to it, but the husband will be having some (minor) surgery in early July, so we won't be able to make it.

Hope you guys have a terrific time!

I'll probably also leave later. 4PM departing Toronto sounds good to me.

Out of the seven (7) sleeping areas up for grabs, I now have paid confirmations for four (4) of them. That means there are three (3) still available.. if you are thinking of joining us for this weekend and want to stay at the cottages I booked, you may want to act soon.
