There Are No Shortcuts

There Are No Shortcuts

 
September 15, 2022
 

Looking to save 8 km or so of labouring down the highway towing Kai Nani, I left Highway 134 and headed for 20.

Leaving St Lucie, I hauled the canoe 2 km, sadly mostly uphill, only to be greeted by this.

Defendu.

And merde to boot.

2km doesn’t sound like much, but the 4 km round trip added an hour to the portage. Not to mention finishing in the rain.  Not to mention the energy expended cursing out whoever put that sign there. And why.

I learned long ago there are no shortcuts to anything or anywhere. I kicked myself all the way back to St Lucie for not thinking it to be true even in Quebec.
