Where the Road Ends: Week 2
via Q Crew HQ:
Our intrepid explorers continue their trek south. Not only are they dealing with challenges from snow, bitter cold, and wildlife. An inattentive driver nearly caused a catastrophic setback to the team. Thankfully everyone is OK.
Day 5 & 6: Tok to Beaver Creek to Whitehorse, 385 miles. We crossed into Canada and camped out in Beaver Creek. Maintenance issues with the trailer held us up a little bit but we were back on the road within a couple of hours. Mostly uneventful riding. The scenery is getting better but it has definitely gotten colder. And we literally camped out in a Walmart parking lot last night. #wheretheroadendsmoto #unstoppable #hellotrouble #gerbergear #canada
Day 7 & 8: Whitehorse to Nugget City, YT to Iskut, BC., 270 miles. We’ve turned on to the Cassiar Highway and we’re making our way south through British Columbia. #wheretheroadendsmoto #hellotrouble #unstoppable #gerbergear #britishcolumbia #yukonterritory #canada
Day 10: Iskut to Smithers, BC, 306 miles. We cracked 300 miles in a day. Its starting to get warmer while we make our way south; a consistent balmy 25F degrees. We’re only 14 hours from the US border. And Simon went full Simon. #wheretheroadendsmoto #hellotrouble #unstoppable #britishcolumbia #Canada
Day 10: Smithers to Prince George, BC. Things got real yesterday. Someone driving carelessly lost control of their car and gave Rich a love tap. He’s doing good, nothing broken. Bike is fixable. The set back also cost enough time for a bad storm to move in and we were riding in some seriously hairy conditions with lots of truck traffic on the road. It made the Dalton feel easy. But we did get a police escort into Prince George. Thank you again to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the first responders from Burns Lake, BC. On to the US!
