2- South of "Scierie 54", km178 on road 167. Caféteria open on worker lunch time. not sure it still exists

One still is still the other no longer exists. I'm a dumb ass and forgot to make a waypoint and using satellite maps I can't seem to pinpoint it. The range between Parent and Chibougamau is doable for gas range without this stop so I skipped it on the gps files. I'll be back up there in the spring and will be more diligent in recording its location

In the route description there is a photo of it and a description, cool spot in the middle of nowhere to kick back and have a cold one and even spend a night . The section from Parent to Chibougamau is top drawer. Fun, wide, sandy roads with a way out there remote feeling. One of my favorite stretches of the TCAT
