>> Day 2
>> Gore Bay to Sudbury.  Sudbury to Huntvsille.   From Sudbury take 69 down to 522 over to 11 and down to Huntsville, or would it be better to go down and across 518?  Any other suggestions?

>> Day 3
>> If we do head down to Huntsville, from there the plan is to go across 60 thru Algonquin to Madawaska and down 523 thru Maynooth, Elephant Lake Rd and 118 over to Haliburton.

>> Day 4
>> Back to Toronto
