    He probably felt the burden of all those people F5'ing to see if their location changed. :lol3

    Stephanie thought they might have killed the batteries by leaving it on overnight.

    With the Spot, all but the new version 3 needs to be restarted daily to continue tracking.

    I was wondering itf it stopped working, or if they'd just decided to hang out at Old Man's Pond for the day. It's a beautiful place. We were there a couple of weeks ago.

    We are wondering if they've run out of lithium batteries, essential for the Spot.

    In St Barbeque eating some hot food. Heavy frost last night. Rain today and very high wind.

    Got entirely sacked by rain today. Woke up to dry weather, but it started pissing seriously shortly thereafter. We holed up till noon, and managed to make it to the Norris Point backpacker's hostel. This place rocks. Warm, dry, with hot showers and a washer and dryer. Great conversations going on.

    It's Norris Point, not Point Norris.

    Did it stay packed like this the whole trip? This gives me hope that maybe I could make this journey some day! I can't wait for pics!

    I reconsidered the bridge clearance issue and bought a different bag at Canadian Tire eh? I used it like a giant loop over the back portion of my seat. Larger panniers and less up top would be better. I'm still building...

    I have to pack differently than my typical "Clampett style" for off roading. I have a picture of my fully laden Honda Davidson complete with Granny's rocker. I'll have to dig it up for you. You seem to be cut from similar material :D

    Just into home port at 12:45 AM, August 27th. Will be moving this over to Ride Reports and posting a link. I don't have a lot of photos, but between the team we have some very good ones, including some pro-grade shots by the Applicant, as well as many hours of video thanks to AtlasEXP.

    No moose strikes, but narrowly avoided a deer and a fox in Maine.
