I started to read this "making of story" for quite a while, and today I made it up to this point.

For a European it is not easy to believe, that you ride for hours through the bush and don't hit a road or a village.

Many years ago after university I worked for a summer on a farm in Chetwynd, BC. And after work we started to Van Isle and then rolled all the way from West to Montreal in an old Chevy. So at least I know how far it is.

Again a wonderful TCAT you all put up!!

classic case of bridge remained intact but the approach got washed out. Looks like you could clear the debris and route the water back under the bridge. Pile up some rocks and ride through that sucka. Thats what I would have done.

I'm getting a feeling that this route needs an assault...

If the bridge isn't fixed by spring we'll make a creek crossing trail just upstream from the washout...

I thought I bit off more then I can chew just trying to lay out 1000 miles for the Pennsylvania for the TPAT. I got to hand it to you guys!

It looks like you really got a lot of nice roads to work with!

keep up the good work.
I have been following this thread since the beginning and want to congratulate, and thank everyone involved for doing such an amazing job. I hope someday to be able to ride at least a piece of it. Reading this keeps me inspired to finish my little 1000 Trans PA Trail.
And I am honored you liked my naming suggestion

Something to fill the gap until the snow melts and work can begin on the TCAT again.

And one of them retiring from the Dakar quest, entirely.

Go jonah, you deserve success, and I hope you find it however you define it.
