For many reasons, my last trip to visit my client in Labrador City had to be by car.
It is a very long drive (around 2,200km each way).
A large part of it, mostly between Baie Comeau, Quebec, and Labrador City, Newfoundland is on a dirt road. You basically get on this road in Baie Comeau and drive north for a whole day.
The enldess road to Labrador City from Baie-Comeau, Quebec.
Around the mid-point, there is a little rest stop where you can get gas and a snack. I stopped there literally seconds after getting my windshield smashed by a rock that flew from the back of a truck. There I met Alan and a group of bikers who were taking a similar trip, but by motorcycle. Crazy, I know.
The cool thing is that Alan had a camera attached to his helmet, so I had to talk to him. He told me he was on a round trip to Massachusetts, and I asked if he would be posting that video somewhere. He said yes and we exchanged business cards. I didn’t think I’d hear from him again, but to my surprise, Alan sent me an email with a link a few weeks later.
Here’s the link to the video that Alan’s camera captured. If you’ve ever driven on that road, you’ll enjoy it!
