    See you in June

    I just contributed a small amount to the Tuk fund, I'm very glad to see this happening. A group of us from Kenai are planning to ride up to Tuk prior to D2D this year. We're getting excited, and the snow is finally starting to melt here in Alaska. See you all in June! We'll be sure to contribute to the economy along the way and in Tuk also. I'm pleased to have helped make some stickers available for purchase to adventure riders headed on the new road this year. I hope there are still some left when we get there!

    The Road to Tuktoyaktuk

    Itís done. My very long, boring for some, dizzying for others, time-lapse covering my Spring 2018 ride from D.C. to Tuktoyaktuk.

    Should you choose to watch the whole film, you will subject yourself to a 55-minute ride across America and up to the Arctic Ocean

    The film starts where I started, in Washington D.C. and makes its way across the entire U.S.A., up through Alberta, along the entire mythical Alaska Highway, through Whitehorse where I met up with Anne and Eddie, and finally up the Dempster from Dawson to Tuk, passing through Eagle Plains and Inuvik. If you like long distance riding, I encourage you to watch the whole thing. If, however, you'd like to just watch portions, by all means, no offense taken, I have listed the milestones below.

    The first 11 minutes take us from Washington D.C. to Dawson Creek, B.C., in Canada.
    The Alaska Highway portion starts at: 11:40.
    The Dempster Highway portion starts at: 24:06.

    I list my thank you's in the film, but allow me here to especially thank all those who donated to the Thanks Tuk campaign and to those who bought an 'I Made It To Tuk' sticker once they got to Tuktoyaktuk.

    I hope this film will inspire you to travel up the Dempster. If you do, be respectful of it and thank all those you come into contact with; remember, they live there.

    Enjoy, but I repeat, watch at your own risk and please, donít tell me itís too long, I know, I was there!

    First to Tuk.
