Oh I did, both last night and on the trip.

It was a little funny as I'd been camping out for a few days with each night getting colder. On the night before I got to Goose Bay, it was really cold. Like, put on all your clothes, crawl into you sleeping bag and curl up into a ball cold. At Goose Bay, I was in the hotel bar when a couple walked up and asked if I was on the 1150 GS outside Turns out they were riding a 650 GS and a 990 KTM and had decided to spend the night in the hotel to warm up and dry tents/bags too.

Anyway, we spent a few hours talking about the ride to Goose Bay, seeing wolves on the road, avoiding all the mining trucks, etc. In the morning we had breakfast together and then they went off to find gas before heading out on the next long stretch of highway. I didn't see them again so I hope they made the distance without running out of gas.
