We left the 5th wheel at Mutane, Quebec and took the F-350 across the St. Lawrence seaway,
a trip of about 2 hours and then traveled through northern Quebec up to Labrador and over to
Goosebay and back. We slept in our tent. One of the first sites as we traveled north was a large
hydo dam called Manic 5.
A river as we headed for Labrador City. The trip to Goose Bay involved driving
over 600 miles one way on gravel and it was very, very desolate. We had three flat tires, one
a sharp rock, another a piece of steel and the last a scissors blade so not really the
tires fault, just one of those things.

Many people who are in the military have been to the airbase at Goosebay, Labrador. It
is an active NATO base today

After leaving Labrador in starting the long trip through Quebec toward civilization we saw some
rock art. This is one example
In amateur radio the world is divided into 40 zones and this was in Zone 2 which is quite rare
so we operated from here for a day and a half. This is typical of our tent setup on this part
of the trip. It was rugged! It rained, the tent never did dry out and the black flies were
terrible. Eventually I had all kinds of red welts from them. At one stop we just started putting
up the tent and it just poured rain. I do want to add the tent was great, no bugs in the tent other
than what would get in with going in and out which we promptly killed. We stayed dry in the tent. I
have nothing but good things to say about this Cabela's Alaskan Expedition tent other than the door
flap over the zipper wants to catch in the zipper. Without the vestiable a little rain can get in
around the door as there can not be a rain fly there so we need to get the vestibable for hard driving
rain situations with wind coming right at the door. This was bear country so we had to be careful about our food. This is boondocking! Lots of
experiences in the traveloge and E-mails
