Cold and overcast again. This is getting to be the standard in Pennsylvania. Moving by 7:00. Drab but at least there’s no traffic. The rain starts in Virginia about halfway down I-81. The Saturday traffic just makes a miserable day worse. The drive is boring and there are the usual weekend drivers parked in the […]

We’re up and gone by 7:30. Stop for fuel and then stop at a Timmy’s for breakfast. We’re on the way home. The adventure is over. (We hope.) The Rabbit 2.0 crew are headed for the airport in Quebec City so than Mark F can fly home to Toronto. Marc G is headed back to […]

Last night, it was clear, cold and windy. Pretty good (but pricey) dinner at the Two Seasons Inn where we are staying. An early night. I was up at 4 AM and checked the weather which was forecasted to be snowy, cold and windy, the remnants of the storm that has pounded Ontario and Quebec. […]

Another day. And hopefully the truck is fixed and we can get going again. But this extended stay is starting have a distinct Groundhog Day feel to it. Get up. Look out the window. Blue, cloudless sky. Did I mention cold. Probably. No calls from the shop. I call about 10 and Scott says that […]

I wait until about 10 to walk over to the shop. Getty joins me. He’s getting cabin fever, too. Yesterday they found the only ice-road in the area and Rabbit 2.0 got stuck on it. They managed to extract themselves with a little help from a passerby. But without a snow machine there’s not much […]

It’s another beautiful day in Paradise, Arctic version. Blue, cloudless sky. But cold and windy. I haven’t heard anything yet about the truck from the shop so at about 11 I walk over to enquire. It’s a “brisk” walk but I need a walk after sitting for the last 10 days. But the walk ends […]

Happy Easter. Which is the only thing to be happy about. The truck is at Performance Automotive in Goose Bay. We’re in the Royal Inn down the block and around the corner. We’re inside and warm so I guess there’s that to be happy about. Jeremiah has decided to fly out tonight. I certainly don’t […]

We’re finally on the Trans Labrador. Just up the hill from the ferry landing there’s a “Welcome to Quebec” monument. We stop for the obligatory photo of Getty standing on the roof of Rabbit 2.0 parked in front of the monument. On the road again. In just a few kilometers we enter into Labrador again. […]

We don’t have reservations for the ferry crossing to Blanc Sablon so the drill is to show up at the ticket office early, get in line and wait for the office to open. When the office does open, usually at 8 AM, you get a ticket for the position in line to actually buy the […]

The weather has cleared overnight and MG wants to go out to Cape Fear to watch the sunrise. MF and Jeremiah aren’t interested and sleep in. Good choice. Cape Fear is literally land’s end in Newfoundland. There’s a lighthouse there and the remains of a huge gun emplacement that protected St Johns harbor from U-boats […]
