Stromsurfer: my feeling is that the James Bay Road is not as much of an adventure as the Trans-Lab. However, once you have done it, you will have covered yet another exciting section of the Far North and you will feel quite proud of yourself. I did feel proud, for sure.

In other words: on the Trans-Lab, you had to cover 1000km of gravel (assuming you did that before the new Cartwright - Goose Bay connection) and the whole trip took you at the very least some 10-12 days. North Road offers 400km of gravel and the whole JBR-NR trip can be done in as little as a week (if you rush it as much as I did).

James Bay Road requires less effort than Trans-Labrador Highway. Still: it was a great adventure! I very much enjoyed it!
