The scenery is amazing, and locals have been very welcoming, but accommodation is certainly more expensive than what we experienced on the TAT 3 years back (but of a higher quality). Note: we don't camp unless demanded

We would suggest anyone on a big bike should consider hitting the highway after Howley as the dam soon after is closed, which demands a tricky water crossing followed by some deep shingle and sand for extended periods.

Tonite we are in Rocky Harbour after 600 km of the T Rail.

It has been everything we had hoped for, even following the tracks on GPS has not been a problem. Thanks Bryan!

Tomorrow we cross for Labrador and the mainland!
