After several days of difficult progress in steep terrain, Caroline was tired and suffering from ankle pain by the time she made it to Bersimis-1.

Once there, she consulted remotely with a doctor (telemedicine – see the Expedition prep video [French only]), who provided advice about caring for her feet. Fortunately, it was nothing serious, and the doctor gave her the green light to keep going. Forty days into the expedition, Caroline needed some well-deserved rest.

Together, Caroline and Samuel, the expedition leader, decided that she needed to take a few days off before continuing her adventure.

They took advantage of this time to go over the rest of her itinerary, and Caroline received invaluable advice from Hydro-Québec employees who are very familiar with the area. Caroline and Samuel also tested out some new equipment to help her cross rivers. Most importantly, Caroline was able to spend a few warm nights indoors and regain her strength.

Halfway into week six of the expedition, once her body was well rested and her spirits lifted by the encouraging messages she received on the Web site and on social media (Facebook and Instagram) Caroline set off towards Saguenay.

Thank you! Your words of encouragement are incredibly appreciated. I am now ready to continue my mission!

For a few days now, Caroline has trekked through the forest alone and is moving at a good pace. Next on the list of objectives: Mount Vallin, where she will arrive sometime next week and be able to pick up more supplies. Go, Caro, go!
