Thanks to everyone for your messages. We are happy to answer all your queries as we would love to see the trail used and helped to completion, and would also like to see other peoples trips progress. Drop us messages about your trips, or better use a planetranger page so we can watch along the way. We have prepared a summary sheet that should answer most of your questions that we can email out that may help people considering the trip. Finally I would say - it was an amazing experience, unforgettable, and the best way to experience Canada. If you are considering it, do it!
