Distances to places on the Island - Work in Progress - Routes are also changing
There is no official road mileage chart to the Island, and this is a work in progress.. Now there are mileage posts and signage on the Island, but most of them were place by road crews who became challenged apparently while drinking or using mind altering substances, for which they were not accustom (so they are inaccurate).
Now keep in mind, that I too am making some these distances and travel times up (but I will update it as we get locals to participate in validations.Also, road construction and can alter stuff dramatically. There's and abundance of wildlife often near the roads, especially in the hours justbefore and after sunset and sunrise, and if you are traveling to/from the Ferry in the morning or evening, you will usually see some at one point or another (another good reason to take Taquan Air). So give yourself time and be safe!
The deer are what is most frequently on the roads, at night (we have counted over 100 on the road from Hollis to Craig at night on several occasions). These deer are so "mentally challenged" that you can often stop, roll down your window and talk to them for about 15 seconds before they take off running. Their direction of choice is very unpredictable and they may run in front of your vehicle. I have never thought of wildlife as dinner, but these things are so stupid that you realize that's what they were made for pretty quick. After awhile, you may even instinctively drool when you see them.
