Almost There

Brrrrr, it was cold out today as we began the last leg of our journey, we had our second breakfast before we left Longlac, we were pretty relaxed, we had about 300km left to drive and it seemed pretty do able. I put on every piece of warm clothing I had, I counted 5 layers in all. We stopped in Beardmore to fill up our tanks,

and to check the biggest giant snowman in Ontario.

So much fun to discover so many small towns in Ontario, I truly live in a great province.

The ride was pretty straight forward, the closer we got to Thunder Bay, the prettier the view, on one side we had mountains and on the other side, water.  We stopped at a couple of rest stops, they are incredible.

At one of the rest stops, a fellow traveler offered both of us a bottle of water, I thought that was pretty generous of him, he was from Montreal and headed west.

Second rest stop:

The ride was pretty painless, although it's pretty incredible how some people drive, I was tailgated by 2 transport trucks, one was pulled over by the police and the other showed up soon after, and stayed for a while. It's a 2 lane highway with a passing lane every so many km's, it seems like people get pretty impatient. There are a lot of transport trucks and trailers on the highway and they seem to feel quite comfortable passing, regardless of whether the passing line permits it or not.

We made to Thunder Bay around 4:30pm, I was pretty stocked because we finally made it and I knew the 'pot of gold' was about to happen.
