I'm a Labradorian (from Goose Bay) just wondering if there is any others in and around the rock and big land?
Post your rides too
I come from a place with more trucks per capita (rough estimate) in the maritimes. It's basically a requirement to have at least one truck in every driveway LOL
In my family we've got 5 between the 4 of us who drive LOL
