Due to the bad weather we decide to shorten today's stage today and to extend the stage tomorrow accordingly. A reasonable bet: we gamble for a better weather tomorrow - a bet you can win or lose.

At the northern end of Eddontenajon Lake lies the Red Goat Lodge. At this place, a construction crew has been stationed for some weeks, which carries out bridge construction work on the highway.
