    Hey Wayne!
    I met you at Skibum's last Soirée didn't I?
    I am in Chicoutimi right now getting ready to meet Tony in Baie Comeau tomorrow evening for the TLH run. I am curious how it will compare to my Arctic Circle run in Alaska.
    Hope to see you again on The Rock!

    Hi Jon, I see you found our little local forum. As you can see you already know a few of us. Hey Steve, my first long solo and dirt run was by myself across the TLH in '08 when it was 1500 Km's of dirt. Now it's almost like a pleasure cruise. As I've already said to Jon on his other threads-giv 'er!

    hi all,

    thanks to all. had a freaking blast in labrador. want to go back and do it again.

    on to NFLD as of yesterday. boat almost couldn't dock and came back for a second try and thankfully made it. rolled down to gros morne with blasting winds and my helmet smushed up against my face and my glasses askew. not quite heaven by this morning seems very clear and not too windy.

    off to twilingate and/or fogo and/or bonavista in the next couple of days. i found a 40 canadian room at the park which was perfect in the dusk (and also a big plus since i like to plug in the PAP machine i am rocking for a good nights sleep).

    so definitely interested in similar lodging (or floor or couch space). happy to trade for similar situation in austin texas...
