Doesn't this trip of Harpers end in Churchill this time.
The Paved road ends more or less in The Pas, the gravel ends in Gilliam, if you look on a map it is not that far off from Churchill..All though the issue here is the same with the Railway, the permafrost is melting more rapidly and the rail line is a joke now and needs to be replaced. A road would have to be built very different then any other road known to I guess float on the permafrost base.
It is to bad that many years ago they pulled the Military out of Churchill, as it was 3 times the size it is now, that would have made the road to it more important.
