yeah the $124,000 price tag seemed a bit extreme for me...I suspected it has something to do with the location. I currently live in a house that is 400 square feet and it has more space than I need. I love the whole small and tiny house trend and always keep my eyes open for land deals.

Lots of good stuff here:

Wow 320sqft is huge way bigger then the van I lived in for two years lol. But mine did cost way less and the view changed when I wanted.

The route is designed to ride east to west

The earliest time to begin would be late May, early June. The latest you'd want to start would be late July, early August.

As for weather...depends when you start. start early in the season and you can expect cold weather in Labrador. Start late in the season and the weather might be cold in BC.

Hope that helps

I know that the route has been planed to ride east to west but I would like to know how hard ( even possible ) it would be to ride it west to east? Would it still be the same time frame ?
Thanks

No, snow doesn't typically melt in BC/Alberta in spots, at higher elevations, until later. Starting on the west coast of Vancouver Island (start/end of tcat) the first of July is safe. Some years, depending on snowpack and weather mid June would be doable.

Riding from west to east will require a lot more fuel. This is because you will have to fight the rotation of the earth as it is going the same direction you are and you will need to ride faster to overcome this.

Although the prevailing winds of west to east will mitigate the above effect to some degree...

Actually heading West to East should save you fuel as it will be downhill all the way!! Well once you're over the Mountains anyway....

So the serious (but no where as funny) answer is yes, this is more than possible. I rode 90% of the TCAT West to East earlier this year. Starting in the Okanogan and finishing in NFL.
