Fri 1 July

Today everything is shut because of Canada Day but we managed to find a tire for Pete. We decided to take it with us on account no one was keen to put it on in the rain. Trail bikes are not the favoured form of transport up here – ATV's and snow mobiles are it. We did the 300-odd km's of poor gravel road to Churchill Falls in fairly good time. Churchill Falls is a hydro town owned by the hydro company. We had intended to tour the dam but no tour today. The town has one large building which houses all services including the motel/hotel, supermarket and stuff. Only the gas station was elsewhere. I blew my radiator today – green goop all over my boot. No pictures today unless you want to see more gravel road and tree. Refer to yesterday.
