    Dusty what works for black flies ? Don't take off your gear or helmet sleep in them . That is one lonesome road .

    You can treat your clothes (including hat/ball cap) with THIS. (Dick's has the best price as far as I know)
    The black flies may buzz you, but if applied right, they won't/shouldn't land.
    Ya, you'll be up in God's Country ... you'll just about be the only Non-indigenous inhabitant! LOL

    That's what I use to do, end of the road adv. I ride a BMW r100gs and am working on a Minimate to sleep in. What do you ride, new to dirt or experienced fire road rider. I gave up on really nasty bad trails. I haven't been to where you suggest. Interesting. ...John

    I am interested in a James bay easy ride. Labrador road is another long serious ride. At 65 I am happy to ride. John

    Might want to check in with the adventure riders forum http://advrider.com/index.php and motorcycle tourers forum on Delphi http://forums.delphiforums.com/mctourer/start

    Sounds like you will be way out there, so you might consider a spot tracker http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...ra%2Caps%2C196 and maybe a MedJet accident policy.

    Got the bugs covered, but might want to bring a can of Grizz spray: http://www.bearspray.com/

    I have no idea what's north of Winnipeg. I used to listen to their stations when I was growing up in the '50s in Rugby ND. Rock and Roll!
