Footage from the drive to Labrador City

 

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!
