Day 2....

Day 2....
We awoke reasonably rested. It had rained very heavy overnight (thunderstorms) but it was dry now. Got our gear packed up and we were ready to get underway at about 7:20 am. Our plan was to get a bit down the road and then stop for breakfast. We were all fueled up from the night before. We would travel 138 out through Quebec City, to the ferry at Tadoussac, Quebec then on to Baie Comeau. 138 is quite scenic and winding, especially East of Quebec City.

Yigal ready to depart


Our breakfast stop...


Yours truly....


Views along the St Lawrence on 138


the Grasshopper resting....


The St Lawrence was very pretty... somewhat overcast & foggy day..


more St Lawrence...


Roadside scenery....


Here is our gas stop.. the Grasshopper gets fueled.


Fog really settling in here at the gas stop...


It was at this stop that we decided to check the siphon as to it's ability to get fuel from Yigal's GSA Tank.
Too my surprise, it did not work, almost as if we could not snake the hose into the compartment correctly.
As I was using fuel at a higher rate, we were gonna look for a couple off fuel bottles for later to carry.. More on that later..

Day 2 will be continued in the next post...
