Name: beaver is interesting. i think someone mentioned labrador or something on that line. Suppose this is more of a planed route than a trail. canuck coast to coast (that would be the CCC). CanAm route, TransCan,...

Pavement is ok, east to west travel is important, avoiding pavement just to hit dirt only to snake across the hwy is silly, run the hwy, make time. back roads are fun to run too.

as for GPS, i think important way points are key confidence markers. lets you know you are on the right road or at the right corner. also being able to orient an upcoming point can be important to finding ones way back on track if lost.

2 cents, tx
