'am n heggs

The title is what a lady said came on a sandwich when I asked. It means ham and eggs. Apparently. Last night we got rained out pretty bad, and started the day with a soggy everything, on 15km of dirt road, uphill. Morale boost right there. Google had suggested we take a highway that was more like a really bad FSR, or a really good pole line. The locals had said "bys got she all fixed up fer da loggin trucks, so ye'll be beskind on dem pedal-bikes." We were not best kind, ordinary kind at best. We finally escaped the insanity after 15km in 1.5 hours or so. I say insanity, but if I hadn't been so stressed about punctures, or broken spokes, or broken rack welds, or any of the other 1000 things that could go wrong, it would have been a super fun rip through the woods. It'd be a lot of fun on the right bike. Tonight we're camping near South Brook, one of the westernmost communities in "central" Newfoundland. The campsite here is beautiful, and there's no rain in the forecast, so I expect to have an enjoyable evening, as one of our last few in a tent for the trip.
