New Glasgow to St. John’s 2018 – Day 1

Journal Entry

I think I did pretty well last night considering I was sleep deprived, jet lagged and setting up in the dark! Slept for 14 hours and good to go!

Continued along road through some very sleepy "New England" feeling hamlets with a lot of history. Reminded me of Vermont. Nice to get on the Trans Canada Trail proper - some fairly easy going gravel tracks, used by ATVers (All Terrain Vehicles).

Got my head down in the afternoon to make some miles, I wanted to see if 80km/day is doable. Went for a muddy swim crossing a "puddle", which turned out to be much deeper than expected!

Had a very enjoyable early evening ride, such a beautiful time of day to be riding. Came to a free campsite with picnic table and outhouse, just shy of 80km... perfect!

Enjoying getting back into the rhythm of Trail Life, could not have asked for a better first day.
