Arctic RIB, Did you take those pics yourself? Very impressive!
Roads here on the Rock are pretty sh1t too. We dont get the extremes of temperature but we do get rapid and frequent freeze/thaw cycles. And of course the province is too bloody poor to actually spend money on road maintenance. Maybe the $2 billion Danny got for the Atlantic Accord might help but I doubt it.
We could have a Canadian RIB.netters get together but its a bit more of a travel issue than for the folks in the UK. (I rather suspect I'm closer to UK here in Newfoundland than Winnipeg!)
