The 2012 Cains Quest is now History. Details of the winners and Teams scratched can be found here by clicking on the Link.  
My Cousin and her Husband,Team 39 made it to the Finish Line. Coreen made History by being the first woman to compete in that competition and to be able to finish in an event which usually sees more then 50 %  of the Teams drop out before it's over is quite an accomplishment. Info at times was hard to get, but each Team could be tracked all the way through the Journey by following the GPS Trackers on the Machines. Unfortunately CBC covered it like most other stories from Labrador. With very little or no coverage. An event such as this deserves much more coverage and hopefully the folks in Labrador will send their voices of disapproval straight to CBC in St. Johns.
