Left Jackman, ME at 11:30pm on Tuesday night. Made it into Lab City at about 5pm on Wednesday, quite a long ride up. Just beat a snowstorm which is a good thing because the ride from Baie-Comeau to Labrador was not as easy as the ride from Jackman to Baie-Comeau. It was a dirt/ice road with lots of hills, twists and turns. It was great that Eric had already driven to Labrador many times because he has a fishing camp here. It felt really good to get some sleep last night in a nice motel. This morning the guys are out riding a section of the race. It is windy and cold, but the snow has stopped. Tomorrow they have meetings for all the teams. Tim has met some of the other teams here at the motel. It is nice to associate a face with an email. We were interviewed by a Canadian radio show this morning. I am sure they will have other teams and some cool information about the race on the show. You can check it out at : www.cbc.ca/podcasts then click on regions and then Labrador and morning. I will post a direct link as soon as it comes out. It won’t be on there until sometime tomorrow. Only 2 more days till the start!!!!
