The unimagineable
This image is no secret. There are untold surprises to uncover within the depths of the woodlands. It is thus important to be prepared to tackle anything even the unimagineable including monstruous tour busses that advance like large beasts devouring prey without warning including any unfortunate cyclist which happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time !

Who knows, maybe we have a new trend with ATV's !

The image was taken in close proximity to the town of Lac Edouard which is truely a fine hamlet to vist. It was at one point the site of a sanitorium . It also is in proximity to a nickel mining operation that was active several decades back which if I'm not mistaken is in the same direction as the tall all metal silo to uncover at the horizon looking west once viewed by the rail between mileage 106 to 111 once going up to the lake St John region on the passenger train ...

Don't expect too much in terms of written renditions to describe my close encounter with a maurauding bus somewhere on a trail within the obscure depths of the forest ! Don't forget that the functionally illiterate moron which I am is in the impossibility to write about it and even less to think about it ! Too bad, I could have come up with some really spooky story about a mad bus running wild on a trail within the wilderness somewhere out there within reach of the twilight zone ! LOL !

Mind you, everytime I write something no matter where I may be in cyber-space the same plaintiffs appear out of the blue for the honors ! (frankly speaking , they should have chosen another more productive turkey !...) Looks like another maurauding bus thriller ! Boooooooooooo ! LOL !

And if you really want to know, the bus just arrived without a sound which made for a really spooky encounter...

I'll acknowledge that maybe you don't want to know what I'm talking about, but most probably you are incredulous... Trust me , there are these monstruous beasts out on the prowl within the depths of woodland trails ! Beware...

Hopefully the image and associated comments won't be censured...

The picture was taken while using the dirt road to go up towards the Triton club situated several miles beyond the hamlet of Lac Edouard. The bus in arriving at low speed didn't make any noise and was as a result a total surprise... Imagine turning your back and seeing something as monstruous just behind you... Thank god it was only a bus... A sigh of relief followed the initial schreeeeek ...

Again logging out even if I appear perpetually logged in...

We get E. European 40 ton trucks and buses stranded down back lanes because they follow Sat Nav. Madness.

I forgot about the sat navigation thing with the now all essential GPS... Actually in the back country it happened more than once to observe a 200 ton lumber truck on a road of related width.

No need to mention that the road in question is mostly used by vehicules and isn't for cyclists...Although we do need a little humour to spice up our lives...

The road (which is an access road for the outfitters )has been widened since...

Another road I intend on following next summer leads to the following outfitter :


I applied to work as a dishwasher there some time back. I'm still waiting for a reply...Mind you, I'd be better with part time work closer to town.

No need to mention that a very lengthy gravel road originating from and leading to nowhere has to be taken ! (Check out the WEB page)

Neat cabins. If you get the job, you could go by quadbike.

When they say bear and moose hunting, are they meaning just observing?

They actually go hunting in such quarters. Although by personal experience I have the definite impression that the forests are being cleaned out ! Last summer I went on a beaver searching expedition of sorts and I just came back with nothing to produce whatsoever in terms of images...

Mind you, this summer because of my frail state of health (my back and neck is always so sore. Furthermore I tend to always feel dizzy ) I have the goal of getting a cheap cabin along the rail line (ready transportation of essentials), or better yet, a cabin on wheels with all the amenities (a cheap 1970's motor home goes for dirt cheap...). I'd then start writing full time even if I'm a dismal writer ! I'd write about the northern woodlands and try to give proper historical anecdotes detailing the adventures of previous explorers without forgetting the natives which have stories of their own to share.

If I do realise such goals I'd either purchase a scooter or try a gas mountain bike hookup which considering the looks of them would make me the perfect fool considering the price of the apparatus. Mind you nothing prevents me from trying out a dynamo/high speed electrical motor hook-up (rotating the dynamo) to produce more power for the motor of an electrical bike. I'd have to properly configure the hook-up with a start-up battery including by using a voltage limitator and the typical zener diode and associated circuitry to prevent overload (it looks complicated but it is actually a piece of cake...). Although I'm wondering if the cheap artificial fireplace advertised in some papers and magazines and sold by the Amish religious community actually incorporates a related device to produce the energy on limited power consumption ....

And why not bike to the moon, or better yet, get closer to town ?...

To be honest; I have to get some good pictures, including anything tangible that shows hills such as breathtaking views from hilltops ! The groulx hills would be a fine start even if they are way out... I might settle for the mounds north east of the Verendrye park (which are also closer to the rail line where I plan to establish myself)

And there is obviously Charlevoix which deserves further consideration.
