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: 21.0 km (Accumulated: 36232.0 km)
Elapsed time: 02:01:19
Start 11:10am., 26c, clear & light wind, at traffic sign "exit 2" to Stephenville on hwy.1. Finish 13:28pm., 29c, half cloudy and same, at blue-white marker at roadside "Hydro TL250" on Road 480 to Burgos.
We have now headed off' the only main road on New Foundland, the Trans Canadian Highway One, and for a little while I will run on the Regional road 480 untill we tomorrow turn left and begin the 3-5 day run along the gravel/stone trail following Red Indian Lake. It should then, hopefully, re-emerge and join the Trans Canadian 1' about 300km up the road, thus saving me approximately 93km compared to if I ran along the main road. It remains to be seen wether the rough conditions and possible trail-finiding time will still make it worth while - but as far as adventure and expedition goes.... Then I am Sure it is well worth it :-)
NB: I will upload this and the following days reports once we are back in 'civilization' again.
