    but does that coun't even though it technically wasn't a cache??

    Radisson,Que is the end of the paved road,,,Take the left onto the dirt road(30-40 km before getting into Radisson) going into the LG2 and LG4 (le Grande dams are some of the largest in the world) dam projects. Travel that road for another 600 KM and you end up at Canispiscau, a seaplane base that offers flights into the tiaga and serves as the major hub for all north bound traffic for Caribou hunters. That is the end of the road....lol

    Yeah, I know there are other private roads heading east and west, but for all intents and purposes, you can't really go any further north than Radisson. (There's a very nice virtual tour of the Trans Tiaga road here).

    Sometime let me tell you about having your back windshield explode 200 miles from the nearest town! LOL!

    Not sure if this counts, but KK and I (along with a non-cacher) found The Seal Trap. We could have taken the ferry to Isle Au Haut and walked or biked to the cache. Instead, we camped out the night before at the Old Quarry Campground. (The same place as the annual Kayak event). We paddle down through the islands, set up camp just off IAH and paddle the rest of the way to the cache. We saw a meteor shower, eagles, dolphins and seals. The weather was perfect!

    I saw that someone pulled the other cache near there today. They don't have any finds, might be a ranger.

    You guys had way too much fun to make it GEO-X. Now if you had logged 5-6 caches on the trip and had a rescue or two......
