I've driven the Dempster hwy 3 times and been up to Tuk.

If I had to choose, I would choose the Yukon hands down. I concur with your thoughts. "Larger than Life"... It's TRUE.

Glad to hear from another Yukon-lover, THX_337. I'm envious of your experiences up there. I'm looking forward to check out your blog.

Aww, shucks, PersonaNonGrata! That's very kind of you to rank my RR so highly. Thank you.

Gracias, as always, brother. When you/we get up to that neck of the woods you'll see just how beyond expectations the north can be!

Glad to hear you're liking it, Oldone. Putting together a ride report like this both gives me a chance to relive bits of the adventure, and figure out my own "story" about what it meant. In other words, it's my pleasure.
