A nice drive

David Churbuck has posted a nice pic of a Unimog, a sort of stunted hummer that reminds me of Franco Columbu (Arnold’s mini-me in Pumping Iron).

Churbuck also links to information about the Trans-Taiga Highway, a desolate utility road off the James Bay Road way way way way up in Northern Quebec. Map here; pix here. The only towns along the Trans-Taiga, apparently, are private settlements for Hydro Quebec workers.

Fun stuff! Toss your snowshoes and bug spray (and lots of spare tires) in the Unimog and let’s go!

  1. Spinners yes, but lower it? I think they should jack it up even more and then drive it directly over every Ford Expedition they encounter. “Oh, I’m sorry, did you think you had a big car, little boy?”
