Day 2 - Shining Tree to Cochrane - June 21, 2009

We wake up in the morning at about 6:00 am to sound of the neighbor's air plane.

Ready to go?

Uh oh, looks like GPS Master should have put on a steel sprocket!

Going to start riding at 8:30 am.

Grassy River.

Our favourite sign.

A good lunch stop.

The lone Honda.

A butterfly convention.

For those of you who like the sound of thumpers - crank up the volume!

GPS Master loses his Spot and so we stop to find it.

This time the moving average is high because we had to do some slab to get into Cochrane.

Best Western parking lot.

Time for cocktails, although the desk manager told us we would be busted for drinking there. Live dangerously!

We couldn't have done it without The Driver!

Good thing we had some wheel bearings.

Lock em up.

Out on the "town".

The only poor meal we had on the trip. Probably the worst Chinese food I have ever had.

We go elsewhere for desert.

Pussy! He claimed it was the Chinese food that did him in.

The reason we took the highway to Cochrane is that on Day 3 we are going to load the bikes on a box car on the back of the Polar Bear Express train that goes to Moosonee. We will be the first to ever load bikes on the train.
They will let us off at the Otter Rapids Generating Station where we will ride across the dam and points south.

We scope out the station for the next day.

What is this? A safari?

We find our boxcar on a siding.

Our hotel is across the road.
