The land God gave to Cain

On seeing the Labrador Coast in 1534, Jacques Cartier called it "the land God gave to Cain."

Nevertheless, some people willingly visit and even live there.

This week saw the thrilling end of a 2000 kilometer snowmobile race -- fittingly called "Cain's Quest" -- which nearly proved to be an impossible dream. The top three teams only got through because they helped each other out. When it came to crossing the finish line, they decided to do it together. They are asking that the top prize be split three ways.

Organizers are still considering the request.

Whatever happens, I'm impressed.
