    Oh regarding the return ferry. Be careful w ground clearance. If its low tide the ferry ramp angle gets fairly steep.

    I'll recommend that Terry should carry two 4-foot 2x6 boards in the support vehicle, to bridge any steep angles on the ferry off-ramps.

    Thanks for thinking of this potential problem.

    O.K., the Polar Bear thing is a done deal (I hope...).

    What is next? The Ice Road Blat to Nunavut in January?

    I hope this will still happen even though Terry has left the forums

    I am proceeding with planning on the Alaska end, and have had no indication from Terry or anyone else that PBB 2015 is no longer on.

    How did that rumor arise?

    Because Terry either left the forums or was kicked out. He started a thread that he was thinking maybe he "was done" with this forum, then started another one with a post that was in clear violation of the rules. Admin closed that thread and indicated Terry had asked to "leave", though I can find no post where that request was specifically stated by Terry. Maybe he PM'd an admin requesting to leave? His account now appears to be disabled.

    Anyway, it would appear that, at least in the near term, any updates on the proposed 2015 GBB from the organizer will not be found here.

    Terry has a thread about this tour on BlatChat, so my guess is updates will land there. Given this was not an official USA7s tour, I don't see why he would cancel it, although I suppose he could opt to make it a Caterham-only event.

    Sean,

    I guess there has been some personality-driven drama on this forum that I (thankfully) have not been following. It's all news to me.

    My understanding has been that the 2015 PBB was not to be a Lotus/Caterham-only event (or else it would be cutting its entry list by half, or more). I believe Terry's Grizzly Bear Blat last August was an "all-comers" event, and that the PBB would be the same.

    John is correct that updates re the PBB have appeared on BlatChat. They also appear on Terry's own website, http://www.7cars.ca/polar-bear-blat.htm.

    Good to know. If blatchat regulars see updates it would be great if you could post a link here as well
