    After this summer's first mid-america crossing (in all that heat!) I realised I could have gone thru Canada and:

    1. Kept nice and cool.
    2. Explored lakes and woods.
    3. Saved miles due to the Great Circle effect. Stretch a string across a globe and see your savings!

    But the two Canadian routes:

    1. Sault Ste Marie > Sudbury > North Bay > Ottawa
    2. Duluth > Thunder Bay > Hearst > Cochrane > North Bay

    are not often discussed here, mostly due to lack of electric charging infrastructure.

    So what's it like entering the Deep Woods and what is the likelihood of a motorist emerging safely at the other end?
