Yellow line shows the TNE route, you can see how Fab's section of the TCAT is also utlized for the TNE route.

Its an ADV thing. On the Roaming Rallye I was touring along in the rain ( remember? ) and I see a shoe. Ok Ill stop, stuff it under a bungie, ya never know if you will find the owner. A few minutes later, another shoe! Damn a pair of sandles, not mine, under bungies. Turns out its my friends Pete Z's nasty worn out sandles...Just another Rallye story, about shoes...

Fab and Hardware, outstanding work, thanks for the effort and sorry about your shoes And yes muchos cajones on the bridge rider.

I just got home yesterday, here's a sorry update from me, due to wind and time I was not able to ride the TLH this time either, that's 3 times I've been foiled this year. My original plan was to ride that plus a section from Relais Gabriel to Port Cartier then maybe try to run the T'Rail on my way home so at the very least I could get tracks. As I said earlier the little hurrican sent winds that stopped the St. Barbe ferry for 2 days and by the time they were going to let me on one there wasn't enough time to get to Montreal by the appointed day. I ended up running back to Port Aux Basques to get to the mainland. CroMag was a hoot and my GPS decided to give up the ghost on the Saturday just as I was loading the roadbook to be the 2nd navigator no a big group ride, great. As a result I didn't see much point in running the railbed as I couldn't track it. I did run the north side of Red Indian LAke which was fine in the rain until I got tail whipped in the mud ruts which resulted in my LED driving lights not working, ( I think, I didn't notice them until an hour later when I stopped for gas). Maybe it's all just as well as my subframe cracked sometime yesterday too and that really would have been a pain if it had happened during the week Sue was riding pillion with me

So now I guess I'm back to a planning session to try to make this lap as early as feasible next season.

Keep up the excellent work.

The lower part of the face guard of a helmet in a suit of armor. The term is also used to refer to the upper part or visor, or to a single movable guard.



Thanks! ... To/For All the work ... I've been on Canadian soil once ... I sure would like to see it again from my bike ...

Holy Crap, Batman, it appears my "Beaver Trail" suggestion is making a comeback.

BTW, I was thinking about Canadian history, not
