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 ๐Ÿ˜Š 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 ๐Ÿ˜‚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. ๐Ÿ˜Š

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. ๐Ÿคฃ

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 Inushuk cut out of granite, which must have been at least 10feet tall, pretty cool but no campsite to be found.๐Ÿ˜ŠStopped 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 ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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!

Scout Trailer Take 1…

The first weekend “real use” of the scout trailer and we have to say we are both impressed with this trailer! It tracks extremely well, so well in fact that fully loaded we had to keep looking back to see it was still there, we really did not feel this trailer at all, which makes for really easy driving and we had her loaded!

Locked and loaded ๐Ÿ™‚ Ready to Roll!

 

 

We put a Snomaster 42s in one of the back sliders with a battery pack behind it for all the lights and the fridge. On the slider next to the fridge we made a custom box to sit on the slider so we could pack her to the hilt ๐Ÿ™‚

We also designed a little table top that sits on the wheel well for additional cooking space, which was tremendous!

Table top and Snomaster

We had a sundogx on the top of the scout and a 270 awning which both served their purpose more than adequately!IMG_0572

If you are looking to buy a trailer take a serious look at the Scout, they are an incredibly well built aggressive trailers

Below are our setups, a scout trailer with a sundogx and 270 awning and a F150 with a big sky and a 270 awning, lots of mods to both setups. More on the mods as we prepare for our trip in September around Labrador and Newfoundland.
