Trip across Newfoundland

Not sure if this link will work. It is to a Google Photos album with pics of a trip my brother and I took this past summer (Aug 2019) across the island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador. We put on 1500 km in 5 days with 1200 of those being on gravel roads, trails and the old rail bed which goes across the island from Port Aux Basques to the Capital St. Johns a distance of nearly 1000 km.

LOVE your pics! I've been to NFLD countless times, as a pilot w/ the RCAF and Air Canada, but I've never ridden there.

Beautiful. I grew up in St. John's. At some point, I have to do that ride.

Great trip,great pics. The rail line trip is the way to go! This country is so darn big that few west coast people have ever been there, not an inkling of our oldest history down east. This is where the first Europeans landed in the Americas, the Vikings. I went to St. Johns from Toronto in a 80s band trip in a van . The people in Newfoundland really are the best Ive ever encountered and Ive never had more fun ever than the week I spent in St. Johns. Somehow I ended up kissing the cod, I was curious so the ceremony was performed!

Very cool. Congrats on your latest adventure! Did the flies eat you up?

With all the pollution and climate change, what kind of world will we leave Keith Richards?
