May 31st: 140km East of Thunderbay to 30km West of Marathon, ON: 130km

Capture

Woke up and the people in the van who also camped out at the rest spot said hello. A guy named Ted and his wife are driving from BC to St. John’s and PEI. His wife has brain cancer.

Phill got a flat immediately. We didn’t get going till 10:30am.
[I think it was at this moment that we also met some people relay-running across Canada with a support van. That was awesome.]

Lots of hills and Phill had a stand-off with a moose.

    Ohh this stretch of highway is one of the most beautiful areas in Ontario! I would love to bike the north shore sometime. Very hilly though.
