Today started off nicely warm. By the time I got to Labrador City 400+ miles north, it was at the freezing mark. Cold head and side winds all day.

850 miles south of you, we were enjoying 90 F heat!

Beautiful open country up there you captured in your pics, Nick - not much traffic either, I'd imagine.

The longest distance with no fuel is 410kms (254 miles). What a feeble excuse. Plastic can and bungee cords.

I'm looking at these things for that leg. 2 gallons when filled. Flat and flexible as a pancake empty. Plenty of lashing points.

Plenty of room to attach a Rotopax 1 gallon or two of them...lots of places to tie them down.
