I'd be up for a Tim's meet sometime the week in the evening and maybe we can try and sort out some deets from there? For scheduling, I'm not the best one to ask as I'm always on call for work so there's a chance I won't be able to make it to the meet anyways. I'll do some research on of4wd and some other 4x4 clubs to see if there's anything interesting in between the GTA and Niagara-ish.

If not everyone post there locations and we will find somewhere central to everyone and just do a little meet and cruise.

I saw a reference to Greens Mountain in Hamilton, do you know what that's like?

I have never heard of it, but I have zero experience with trail riding. I've been out once the first day I got the truck on the mountain in Hamilton at Mount Albion Conservation. And although there was existing tire trucks around, I don't know how legitimate it was for us to be there.
As for my scheduling, I am available every evening and all day Sundays.
Lets just try to find somewhere to go.

Hello everyone.
I got a tip on a good spot from one of my customers today. It's near Steeles and Tompkens in Brampton, along the Etobicoke Creek. I was looking at it on GoogleMaps and it looks quite promising.
If go on googlemaps and search Westcreek Blvd, Brampton, zoom in a bit and follow along the westcreek toward the 407 you can see all the trails in and around the creek.
Anyone interested in scouting it out this weekend? I've picked up some recovery straps just in case.
Feel free to text me if anyone is interested

My weekends seem to be booked straight through until December. Wish it were otherwise. I'll be volunteering at the Rally of the Tall Pines at the end of November though if anyone is interested to come check it out, it should be fun!

I know that summer is getting close to an end, but a cruise sounds great. I still need to complete the deal on my (first) Delica. My "new" L400 should be in my driveway by next week when safety check is done and when I finish jumping through auto insurance hoops (I'm learning so much). Looking forward to spending some time with other local Delica owners (I'm in Welland, ON).

YES! Another L400 in Niagara! I'm way up the road in Fenwick. You're not the guy who knocked on my door a few months ago are you?

I would be down for a small get together, I've met up with some guys from the RHD Niagara facebook group before, just for hangouts and a cruise of the Niagara River Parkway. They drive Skylines and EVOs and such but they're a great group of guys (and gals) to hang out with and talk cars.

Maybe we could do something similar? Maybe get some tow straps and go ditch picking next snow storm? lol :-D

Hey guys!! So there's a big van show and shine called VanFest in Aylmer on the 20th of June. I just sent in my registration, there's a Facebook page as well. It would be awesome to see some other Delicas there!

http://vanning.com/vanfest/vanfest2015/ ... k2015.html

To register, it's pretty archaic. You have to take a screen cap of the registration form, print it out and mail it to the address with a CHEQUE payable to VanFest. I'm just going for the show and shine on Saturday, it's $30. But you can go all weekend and camp, I think that's $55 or something.

Hope to see some of you there!
