Just started a report on it, if you care to have a look.
Cool! Shipping the bikes is a great option to save 4-5 days of traveling. I'll look into that for the next trip ...

Nice!

If I'd be living in your neck of the woods, I wouldn't have to travel as far as Iceland to go riding. Around here (almost Netherlands), they call a 250ft hump a mountain. I've worked a summer in OR ... there are definitely worse places to get stranded in the US.

this is the kind of ride report that keeps me coming back to ADV. And the kind that makes me want to do more RR's.






and actually finish one some day.

Very nice report. It brought back a lot of memories from my solo 2 week ride back in July 2010.

Wow! And here I thought the bugs were bad on the Trans Labrador Hwy.

Any problems with language barriers? Is English spoken there at all?

Hi Blackhorserider,

nearly everyone speaks English and we had no problems in this way.
