trans labrador highway june 19 from new england

hi everyone,
I'm heading from CT, USA on June 19 up to Canada to do a circle of the Trans Labrador Highway, going from CT to Quebec,then to Chicoutin and on to Baie-Comeau then up to Happy Valley Goose bay via TLH then a ferry to Cartwright, then riding down to Blanc-Sablon where i pick up the ferry to Black Dove Cove In Newfoundland, maybe riding around there a bit exploring and then on down to Channel-Port Aux Basques to pick up the ferry to Nova Scotia exploring there some again and then off to RT 1 to follow that to the states and the highway back home. If anyone is interested let me know, Ill be camping the whole way maybe one night in a cabin but I love the outdoors. I'm giving it a minimum of two weeks and I may be out a bit longer possibly 3 depending on how nice of a ride it is. These are the estimates of driving time with out little excursions from map quest Total Estimated Time: 93.0 hours 24 minutes Total Estimated Distance: 3331.91 miles If your interested in the trip or just have some advice your welcome to come along or speak some words of wisdom. thanks
Cheers
*dusty*

Dusty,

Sorry about the dump. Hope you get you're stuff back and are back in the saddle soon.

If it's any consolation at all I did the same soft spot boogie just east of CF. The rock dust filled potholes are invisible and are definite "Oh Shit"ers.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
