Goose Bay Goodness

I know we just posted, but our stay in Goose Bay was worth another one! We met a guy on the ferry over the Labrador that let us use his SAT phone and told us to call him when we got to Goose Bay. We did, and he really took care of us! We were given a bed, showers, laundry, and even old MRE meals to take on the road! He also took us up in one of the helicopters he works with to see where our friends were (they were riding about a day behind us). It was pretty exciting, we didnt expect to get to see Labrador from a tiny helicopter! Oh, and we interviewed with the local paper about our ride, we will update that when it comes out, and we have an appointment with the TV station as well. we're FAMOUS! hahah. Thanks Wilf and Brenda!

SO excited to be in here! its my first time!

Wilf took us up in a helicopter (he works for the heli place here) to look for  out biking buddies. Pretty cool!

We got to cook our own steaks at the steakhouse where Brenda works- turns out we are  pretty good cooks!

Wilf and Brenda, our amazing hosts in Goose Bay. We call him the unofficial mayor of Goose Bay

  6. In one of our 3 year old's books there is a drawing of a Narwhal, you need to read more children literature to learn about animals. Looks like the adventure of a life time, Tara thinks your nuts. I am glad people are treating you so well. Good luck with the rest of the journey, we will be following you.
