I should have listened to all the advice. I still have a hell of a story. But I bit off a ton of mileage.

Glad you had fun!

My "story" was published across the AOL networks. It's a long read.

thank you...

thanks for the inspired article - just read the AOL series. Demptser Highway is on my list for next summer - my first 2 wheel biggie - and your words just pumped me up a bit more. Thanks too for opening up - the 'chick flick' stuff is important to get our testosterone heads wrapped around. Congratulations. Glad you're back in one piece.

Great write up! Felt like it was done in a way someone who has never done this trip could relate very well. Has me stoked to ride somewhere! I am in SE Pa so I am thinking Nova Scotia and/or Newfoundland. Not because I thinks it's all that. Rather because it's close and it's there. Also a chance to scout out quality brookie fishing...... I have been inspired by your write up!!!
