That's a nice touch! On a ride that could likely require servicing, knowing where you might want to schedule a visit is a Good Thing.

Rick West, I look forward to your riding report of doing a full TCAT as I am planning to take this trail sometime in 2015.

Maps

I'd like to carry a set of paper maps as a back up to the GPS data.
Can anyone suggest a set of maps for Canada that are detailed enough
to show the roads this route takes ?

Max

I'm about 5000 km into the route. Garage and place to setup tents...would be happy to host ya for a rest/maintenance day

Once gps files are finalized, hoping to have tiled, detailed maps you can print out

Just absolutely amazing.
It's gentlemen like you and the riders who have worked to establish
this route that make the ADVRider community such a unique, positive
resource.

Thanks, Max

I tried the above link and it takes me to a page that then tells me that my browser does not accept cookies so I cannot put anything in my cart. I went back to the main page and then chose the files section and had no issue putting the TCAT files in my cart.

Yes Rinho, I'll plan to make it with my G. I plan to make it, and go also in North Alaska. I plan it for 2014.
For 2013, I've made tracks to go in Gaspesia and North of New Brunswick only by trails from St Hippolyte. I've planned max of trails. But it's short travel : only 2500 km.

Hey Cannon.

If you want you can put my shop on there (if it's not already) We can help out someone in a bind and that's where I'll be found during the week also.
