    I dont care where we meet, but i dont feel meeting on the side of a major highway is very safe.

    thats why i mentioned 410 and brock rd... there is a plaza right there with a large parking lot and it is literally 25-30' from the highway... we would get noticed there for sure

    ^ yeah along those lines would be much safer than lining up ON the highway or at an on-ramp etc.

    service roads close to and in view with the 401?

    vaguely recalling ie: the road with the Harley Dealership, road with 5thwheel truckstop.... ideas?


    2475 South Service Road, Bowmanville (5th wheel)

    http://maps.google.ca/maps?q=880+Cha...=16&iwloc=addr

    these are lightly used serviceroads in close proximity and good view of the 401.

    I like the Ohsawa idea, but agree with the side of the hwy to be too dangerous. I'll boost my jeep tonight.

    is there safe room on the side of that service road to allow for a contingent of rigs, their occupants and still be a safe distance from the active roadway?

    here is an aerial shot of the First Pickering Place... brock rd and 401... i think a suitable central location for most and in direct vision form the hwy

    ample parking

    There's a fence seperating it from the highway (chainlink) it's like RIGHT next to the westbound lanes, 50km/h zone or so. I'm sure you could pull to the side, oftentimes I see cars lining it when i've driven the area when fallen soldiers will be passing through in the precession.

    Anyone local with better input?

    Whitby Mall would be the best
    right beside the chucky cheese
    also that off ramp is by thickson in whitby there is a jeep dealer on the raod as well.
    as for safe parking.. about as safe as the 401
    i,m open to any ideas

    Champlain is a very lightly used road (basically only traffic on it is for the businesses along it) about as safe and close as we can get in an accessible local for most. But its a popular choice so early arrival may be required to make an organized presence.

    Very important that if you are one of the few hundred people reading this thread, and intend to participate, that you either post up or send me a private message.

    Picking a suitable venue to show our respect will be based on number of attendees, so let yourself be heard.

    well where the harley dealer is i believe u can pull off onto the grass ( to not obstruct traffic) on the south side of the road and there is a good view of the highway. there is also the mall right behind my house on pickering parkway ( ill drive by later for a good look at it) but im game for anything except for sitting on the side of the highway
