World Run II / Reports
The map shows the position of which the pictures for the day are taken (if any). The start and finish markers are placed at the first and last valid registered position. This is not nessesary the actual start and finish position, if GSM or GPS signals was not available.
Distance today: 40.0 km (Accumulated: 36182.0 km)
Elapsed time: 03:57:46
Start 11:00am., 24c, a few clouds & light wind, at brown roadsign "Morris Brook Bridge" on hwy.1. Finish 15:18pm., 27c and same, at white 'divided highway' sign on hwy.1, approximately 30km South of the exit to Stephenvill on hwy.1 [see gps-pictures for exact location].
Again we got a 40km stage done :-) Quite hilly again today and somewhat warm for canadian conditions but nearly ideal for this type of slow running where there is pleanty of time to take in the scenery and get re-hydrated too.
For a few days we have had base in Stephenville wich is the nearest town up the road and we expect to stay there also tomorow. After that the run should become a bit more expedition-like since we have decided to attempt a small road wich saves us about 93km's on the next 270km streatch. It goes inland along "Red Indian Lake" instead of following the only proper road, highway one that follows the pheremiter of the island. The catch when attempting the shortcut... is that it becomes a narrow gravel-track with some small bridges. The latest report we have been able to obtain of somebody using it is from 2009 but it seemed to be in good condition back then.
We may be off-line for about 7days and then hopefully emerge on the highway where the trail should come out up at the North end.
NB: The endomondo gps-tracking system again had a malfunction (!!). After 30.2km's it shut down and I first noticed this 2km later. So on the gps-track there will be 1.9km missing before the tracking resumes. Atleast the gps-coded pictures covers that piece too and I am once again Gratefull for the work my webmaster in world run one and two, Kasper Leonhardt, has put into making the gps-picture documentation system wich unlike the commercial systems I use throughout the run's has worked perfect the whole way :-) Thanks mate !!
