Read about Sylvain's Siberian adventure - beautifully written.

Hey Boom Boom!!! Someone has found an even more isolated place than your neck of the woods!  8)

Heh. And, once the road and bridge officially open - I think mid-July - I don't think I can call this an isolated territory any longer. Still no road access between Kegaska and Old Fort Bay, though.
 
But it remains a loose gravel road (44 km), and along with the new bridge, we will lose our airport and also, believe it or not, our bank will close, and we'll have to go to Natashquan.  :annoyed
