Glad I could help out, I've been around a little And jd is right, there's not a whole lot of people up in the Tiaga out running around other than QH workers. Fun to travel and meet people from these places

One wild man at the end of the TT had taken a Honda Element or Toyota Pirus in a body wrap all the way out there

across the north there are few roads and few people. to see someone walking on a bush road far from any known shelter was unusual enough for me to make a note, and then later include in my report. to have throttlemeister come along and identify this guy for me a year after seeing him, now that is bizarre. Glad I could identify and let you know what he was up too I really enjoy talking with these kind of people

here's a photo from the dempster to tempt you into a little trip planning...

There is something extra special about the Dempster, crossing the divide a few times with the elevation is awesome, but it doesn't have all those damn dams

Small world...
