The Move Day 4: Kenora ON to St Joseph Island ON


View Larger Map

Day 4 Distance Traveled:
1200km

Gas total:
No mountains, no headwind = much less painful.

Wildlife (living)
2 Black Bears
4 moose
1 Beaver
1 Loon

Construction projects taking place on Northern Ontario's roads:
It's probably easier to list where construction isn't taking place.

Notable:
Today's 1200 km's took a whopping 16 hours due to the above mentioned "road upgrades." That said, we're at Hil's parents place now and stoked to have a few days of R&R before our final day on the road.

We also saw a truck's front grill fold in on itself after running into the business end of a moose. While the moose didn't make it through, it amazing looked in much better shape than the truck.

And apparently Saskatchewan's road signs were stolen, repainted and posted along Ontario's roadside - they're everywhere.

Amount of time this update is taking due to Dial-up Connection:
Too much.

Best road warning sign:
"Daze. Doze. Dead."

VERY happy you arrived with the moose NOT attached to the front of your U Haul. REST, RELAX, before you RETURN to London. Great Road Warriors indeed!!!!!
