 Post subject: Goose Bay Labrador

Older pic I took with my beat up Sony DSC-150 (great camera for hanging around your neck on a motorcycle) this was after it got so much sand in it I thought it had died, but I revived it.....

taken on the Trans-Labrador Highway, the only road that goes to Goose Bay (google it)

At some points you are hundreds of miles from the nearest ANYTHING. You can literally eat lunch in the middle of the road..

kind of just goes on and on and on...

Image

this "used to be" a town....it's strange....pavement when you are hundreds of miles from the nearest "other" town

Image

kind of like an oasis in the middle of the woods....

I love the first and second photo Randall, nice work. Must be a boring road to drive on all the way! However... there's probably not a whole lot of policemen there, so speeding is possible... :D

see, that's the not boring part...

I also thought it would be boring and that we could do 80mph the whole way...until you think "if I crash at this point and break a limb, it will be about 8 hours before I get medical attention" ....that makes it "exciting"...and you keep the speed down to 60!!!

we came across another group of motorcyclist, same kind of bikes, guy crashed rather close to Goose Bay and total time from crash to hospital was 7, almost 8 hours with a broken femur and collar bone!

Ouch, poor motorcyclist. Not that I have a car yet, but I'd be driving down the road (instead of riding a motorcycle), so the danger of an injury is smaller.
