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.
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!

Wow, Nice vedio, I really love watching this vedio
We were just in Newfoundland and Labrador. It certainly is one of the most beautiful places in Canada. And perhaps on earth for that matter. Check out our website for some videos, photos and stories from our time there: http://www.outpostmagazine.com
