Triple dip - cross continent ride. Stage 4

Planned for July 9 - 21

Now we roll through the prairies.  Most of the route from this point isn't set in stone, it's just something I've put together quickly as a general guideline.  However it will follow very closely to this map.
The prairies will be happening during potentially some of the hottest weather of the year.  It's hard to say what the weather will do.  The trailer has air conditioning so maybe we'll have to hibernate in there at every opportunity.  Hopefully we don't encounter too many summer storms.  The winds should definitely be in our favour.  Combine that with the flatness of the terrain and this could be a good recipe to get ahead on our mileage. 
It's hard to say how quickly we'll make it through this stage so we'll stay with our goal of 150km/day (with one day off every 7 days).  One advantage of making up some mileage is that we can spend more time exploring Newfoundland.
