Aqui vai o relato direto do Gildo ( achei melhor reproduzir suas palavras para ficar mais autentico. Sorry, não mandou nenhuma foto nova, mas dá pra entender o porque.
cheguei bem. Estou em um hotel em Dease Lake a 720km de Prince Ruppert. Vou fazer um resumo depois que falei com vc em Fairbanks:
I got well. I’m in a hotel in Dease Lake on my way to Prince Ruppert, 720km from here. I’ll do a summary after I talked to you in Fairbanks:
After I crossed the border into Canada, the weather closed and it started raining, windy and cold (42 degrees) as hell. My idea was to try to get to Whitehorse but could not stand the rain and cold and slept in Haines Junction. I turned on the electric glove Gerbings at the highest setting , but with the rain, the tips of my fingers started to hurt. On the boott a little bit of water entered, but with the heating turned on, I was able to bear it. The equipment is very good and I was wondering if I would have not worked, I would get hypothermia. Now I saw that it works well for dry weather but if is raining and windy the heat just scape. Now I know that the right thing to do is to put the BMW rain coat over everything, so it made an outer barrier and the heat generated is maintained. Today I woke up at 7 o’clock, because I wanted to leave early, but ended up not, because I had some problems to solve in the company and ended up leaving the 10:15.
I saw a family of grizzly bears on the road, mother and two cubs. Made you want to catch them in my lap.
Tomorrow I leave early, because I want to arrive early to know the city.
