I split off from the group just south of Gambo on wednesday. Wasn't actually planning to split off, just hop ahead to take a few pictures from the lookout after the construction section, but when the b-king and gixxer that arrived at tims after we had left passed by my perch, I figured you guys had turned around. Saw that Jake facebookcheckedin atthe tims in Gander about an hour before I arrived after the day 6 track. It was quite windy most of the time, lots of bare rock, causeways and open plains of rocks and low grasses. I followed the north gravel road along Red Indian Lake back towards Port-Aux-Basques until around nine-thirty, my engine seized. Actually just my blinker met my rear tire/swingarm causing an engine seizure noise that itself caused a four minute tirade of general cursing followed by four minutes of laughter. Camped out just past the lake in the driveway to someone's cabin. Scavenged twigs and sticks from the road nearby, roasted a few marshmallow after eating chili sandwhiches. Really loving this biolite campstove, there was a new moon last night, pitch black night, and I'm certain I was being followed around by those coyote/wolf mixes damurph was telling us about the night before. Having a reliable instant campfire instead of an invisible alcohol fire is a great way to cap off 12 hours of riding. Today ( well yesterday now, I guess ) was spent leisurely wandering to the terminal, fixing my blinker in the parking lot of what has to be the smallest Canadian Tire in existence, and a trip out to Ross Blanche to see the lighthouse and climb a few rocks. I heard a few times during the day about how the ferry certainly would/would not be going tonight. The riding has been spectacular, but I'm pleased to be headed back to NS to see my new nephew, then home to NB Sunday. Full ride report and a few hundred photos to follow. Good to hear you're home safe Tim, have a speedy recovery. Will PM address for the RCMP. I didn't get any immediate post crash pictures, I think the earlier one of the rut is the only one showing the bike down.
