It's a 1,300-Kiolometre (810 Mile) route that approximates the path taken in 1874 by the North-West Mounted Police across southern Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, in their quest to bring law and order to the Canadian West.
It's a very scenic and relaxing route that I think is far superior than the Trans-Canada Highway....mainly because of the lack of big trucks and the slow speeds on this route. No rushing here.
Due to the early time of year I'm planning on travelling, none of the provincial parks or commercial campgrounds are open. So, I have been having fun trying to find places to Boondock at along the way....not very easy let me tell you !! Hopefully the RCMP know the difference between "Resting" and "Camping".
I'll be taking my portable HF radio gear with me, both QRO and QRP variants, and I'm looking forward to making some great contacts along the way, as well as some SOTA activations out in BC.....I'm also planning on setting up at a beach campsite, probably Jordon River on Vancouver Island, for a few days and working as much asian DX as I can get.
Stay tuned for more details!!
