Our 2020 overland trip…?

Our Bedslide!

Where to even begin…..

Since we are all experiencing social distancing with covid-19 our plans have to be put on hold until all of this is under control!

We are feeling disappointed but have to follow protocol and make sure everyone stays safe, that is our main priority.

Should August roll around and covid-19 has taken a back seat we will reassess our plans, until then we all wait and watch and hope for this to be over soon.

In the meantime we are prepping our F150 for future trips, we now have a slide installed, which is awesome! Next we have to analyze the space and see what we want to put where!

We will have battery packs, inverter and solar panels set up for the Bundutec and fridge to run off , we will have more details on that coming up.

We are considering putting in a low profile snomaster instead of the regular one, so we can access the inside of the fridge a little easier.

We have a water tank we used in our trailer which i think we may move over to the truck. It holds a good amount of water for our needs. Eco temp will be hooked up for instant hot water. These units are an absolute god send!

Then the stove i think for now we will keep as a separate unit, ie. not attach to the truck on a swivel as previously thought, this way we can literally move it anywhere.

Our bundutec roof top tent stores all our sleeping gear inside when closed so no need to worry about space for bedding and pillows, easy breezy!

The rest of the gear we still have to decide how to stash neatly and efficiently.

That is about it to date, now when we will actually get out to use the gear is another story πŸ™‚

So lets get rid of the virus, stay safe everyone and keep social distancing so we can hit the trails once more!

Day 5 – to Kegashka we go!

Our day started early and as we packed up the black flies and mosquitos literally ate us alive! Could not get out of there fast enough.

We stopped off at a look-off point called Baie-Johan-Beetz and literally found thousands of blueberries and had a nice early morning feast 😊 Wind blown but what a stunning day!

A long drive about 450kms through valleys that looked very similar to the Labrador tundra. At least three old style snowmobiles that seemed to abandoned along the way on the trails for some reason.

Finally we arrived at Kegashka, literally the end of the road, one restaurant in this town – surprise it was not open on Monday or Tuesday fortunately we had our own lunch so stopped near the sign to eat and change the mud flaps on our truck as the gravel was once again flying up onto our trailer, fine talcum dust was filtering into the trailer!

Kegashka is a very quaint fishing village with a population of only 120.

In winter there is a trail called the white trail which is a snowmobile takes you all the way to Blanc Sablon. 😊

There are many snowmobile bridges here the most famous is the one across the Manicouagan River, in the Baie-Comeau area. At 213 metres long (700 feet), it is the highest snowmobile bridge in the world! The trails here are exceptional and so are the rivers

There are also endless beautiful rivers for those keen on fishing, this is prime country!

Just a little more info to keep you on your toes. 🀣

The awesome foursome at the end of the road!

Heading back we started looking for a camp site for the night, the wind was howling and beach sand was flying.

We went down many side windy dusty roads and came across this Inukshuk cut out of granite, which must have been at least 10 feet tall, pretty cool but no campsite to be found.😊Stopped at an Natashquan (means where one hunts for bear) another small village population of about 265. We went into the “liquor” store to fuel up πŸ˜‚ although these stores carry literally everything. I ran to snap this sign which was pretty cool, getting sand blasted in the process from the flying beach sand.

Pretty neat to think we were in Blanc Sablon last year!

Late afternoon and finally a campsite!Camping de la Plage at Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan.

Lovely spot right on the beach, stunning night and even better chats around the fire! Nothing better than going to sleep listening to the waves crashing on shore!

Not all roof top tents are the same!

Buyer beware we have heard numerous stories of people who fall into buying rtt’s from ‘new brands’ on the Canadian market, and end up with many issues. A lot of these pop up companies are just that, they bring in a few tents flog them and then they disappear, customers are left with a bad taste in their mouths as their warranty and customer service becomes obsolete!

We were the first company in Canada to manufacture roof top tents, previously the roof top tents were all imported from companies originating in the states.

Having been in this industry since 2011 and have made many changes in the design to enhance the tent and not just cosmetically. Our fabrics are high quality waterproof ripstop no leaking, tearing or bending of frames. Customers have been out in torrential rainfalls and strong winds and our rtt’s continue to stand the test of time. Our rtt’s will be able to be passed on for generations with care.

We are proud to stand behind our tents and are always available to talk text or email promptly. We are continuously improving our tents to provide the best product possible.

Our roof top tents all come with annex room no extra charges. The zippers in annex base and cover are ykk and the window zippers sbs. All bases are extruded diamond aluminum sheathing, Mattress is covered and wick proof. Hand strap for those that like to hold onto something when get down ladder. Windows can be rolled up too. Large gear bags for shoes or clothing.

The sundog X includes many extras which is incomparable to any other rtt out there. Check out our website below to see all listed features:

Wild Coast Roof Top Tents

Any questions give us a call, text or email us we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Spring is almost here I can’t wait to get our trailer and rtt ready to explore again! We also have an incredible trip planned to Newfoundland and Labrador later this year.. so keep eye out I will be posting more details as we plan this!

Happy Week everyone and let’s hope this next winter storm will be our last one now!
