  2. -19°F Winter overnight in Lanaudière, Quebec

    On my Mac it's a weird combination of keys, especially since I have a French keyboard. You can probably just copy and paste them if you want!

    I agree I couldn't keep a pace of 15 miles per day for a whole month, but I think it might be doable for 6 days. I would agree in taking more time to do it for the argument of enjoying the scenery...
