Gave that some thought and decided if I do somehow find 10 weeks off work - most likely an involuntary "holiday" - I can get back home and chalk up an Iron Butt reward. I think it's 72 hours, coast-to-coast.

Just need to get some 50/50 nobbies ... Trailwings probably aren't the best option for that trail.

At least that much, especially in northern Ontario and Alberta. Try to keep it off anything but your skin ... high DEET concentrations melt plastic.

And bringing a few extra gallons of fuel is probably also a good idea
