Sorry fretman, I can't really recommend any shops. I've had some mixed experiences with almost every shop... it really depends on who you talk to. And no, sadly, I don't know anyone good enough to recommend by name either. Sorry.
Toronto, I don't really have any directions. Uh, so far it's looking like Ottawa-Carleton Trail to Carleton Place (or where it happens to end) and then SW in the general direction of Toronto. I will leave in like 36 hours but at the end of the week I can tell you which way I went but I don't know right now what that'll be. I have a GPS and a bunch of detailed maps... but this is a sad attempt at some adventure so I like the idea of not sticking to a plan too well, I just got this stuff in case something goes awry. I took the summer off and am living it up, I went through the last 4 semesters with a fixed schedule, time to throw that away and just go.
