SoMD ADV Riders Present: 55th Parallel, But Whose Counting--A Trans Taiga Adventure



They always say: start with the end in mind. With that, we begin this ride report with the track that leads to the holy grail (AKA the end of the Trans Taiga)

The Adventure begins 24 August and ends 08 September!

The Trans Taiga:


Quote:
The road's northeastern terminus is almost at the 55th parallel north, making it the northernmost continuous road in Eastern North America. The terminus is also the farthest point from any town (745 kilometres (463 mi) from Radisson) via road in North America.
We begin our journey with some old wingmates:

Blaster11


Lakota


Dorito


And some new wingmates:
KeithMcKenney


Join us as we ride north and visit our Canadian brethren....mostly 'Rally style' hitting lots of interesting places along the way. If you want to know more about our scheming, here's our planning thread

I'm sure they'd let me into Canada but getting back into these Vereinigten Statan might be a little more difficult.

just had to chip in for our German readers....

Die Vereinigten Staaten (englisch United States, kurz U.S.), in amtlicher Langform Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika (United States of America; abgekürzt USA), nichtamtlich auch Amerika (engl. America), sind ein 50 Bundesstaaten umfassender nordamerikanischer Staat. Mit Hawaii und kleineren Außengebieten haben die Vereinigten Staaten auch Anteil an Ozeanien. Die Hauptstadt ist Washington, D.C., die größte Stadt New York City.

And we are starting from Die Haupstadt, more or less....
