They make me want to go back and I think I will when they finally complete that section between Cartwright and Happy Valley - Goose Bay. They keep changing the "completion date"...now its 2009...who knows if it'll happen by 2010.
From the looks of the pics of the roads, you lucked in. Except for the very edges of the road, they look to be free of loose gravel . They must have dumped fresh gravel and spread it when I was there in 2003.

Holy crap what a report! Nice job, awesome photos.
Man I wish I could get a month off.
I wonder if I could put Tourances on the RT.... hummmm....
In looking at your gear I see Helen2wheels products, but I also see your own creative design in the strapping system. Are those bicycle inner tubes securing the load? What's your theory here? Thanks, Peter
All of your pictures appear upside-down. How do I right them to view?
I noticed the sheepskin cover on your seat. I can't ride more than 300 miles without a very sore backside. Did you find this thing helped a lot on your trip? If so, what brand is it and where did you buy it? The pictures were really great.
Above photo was taken last summer on a two week, two up (three with the dog) camping trip. The dog loves traveling in the tank bag.
For my packing system I used Helen Two Wheel bags with straps, and a bungee net.

Now this was the rep!! Made me think the sheepskin must not be all its cracked up to be. I got a good laugh anyway.
Lots of people seem to like them though.

The dot/dash (Goose Bay to Cartwright) section is now open.
You may still take the ferry

This Road will be going thru a possible Canadian National Park, The Mealy Mountains
