Laugh Road question for Saskachewanians

I'm on my way to Newfoundland traveling a less traveled road.
Is anyone living in Northern Saskachewan familiar with roads 924 and 916 between hwy 55 to hwy 2?
And then hwy 165 between 2 and 106?
I'd rather take the back routes than having to ride down to Prince Albert on my way to Flin Flon
Please only give info if you've ridden it yourself, I can find out stuff using google, but first hand experience is a lot more accurate!

The correct term is 'Flatlanders'.

165 is a good gravel road, traveled it last year. Have done 922 and the part of 924 from there to 55. The rest I have not traveled but would think they are good gravel roads.

Thanks Snobear! Glad to hear that!
What did you do for gas?? Bring extra or are there little towns with gas?

There are lots of small towns and resorts along the way os if you have a range of 300 k should be no problem. I do carry a one gallon can when I go up to Flin Flon only because there are occasional power outages at the small stations and it saves you having to wait for the power to be restored.

Check out the TCAT, Trans Canada Adventure Trail on the GravelTravel.ca website for good back country routes through the prairies and the rest of Canada as well.

I rode 165 a couple weeks ago...a bit messy in places, but nothing terrible. There are some gas stations that may show up on your gps that don't exist and some that do exist that you won't see. The others are ok, unless they a grading them...making them a little too soft for a relaxing day.
