Over the river and through the woods..
Once a year, my employer hosts an annual general meeting in which we account for ourselves to our membership (our real bosses). It's mostly a working weekend, spent in some mediocre hotel somewhere in the province but this year we're going somewhere quite nice - the Humber Valley Resort. The downside? It'll take us about 10 hours to drive there. And as anyone who's ever travelled the Trans-Canada Highway knows, that'll mean trees and trees and road and more trees. And, we hope, no moose.

Watch Out for Moose There are about 110,000 moose on the island of Newfoundland, and most highways go through good moose habitat. Moose are great to look at - from a distance. If you see one on or near a highway, use extreme caution, slow down and prepare to stop. Like all wild animals, moose are unpredictable. Be sure the moose has either crossed the highway or gone back into the forest before resuming your drive. Also, if you see a vehicle stopped on or near the highway, the driver may have spotted a moose, so be cautious. Avoid driving at night if possible as most moose vehicle accidents occur between dusk and dawn. If you must drive at night, slow down. Scan both sides of the highway with your lights on high beam unless overtaking other traffic, and pay attention to warning signs. A road sign like "Caution, moose next 11 kilometres" means moose cross there frequently.
