He didn't have any heated gear because if he broke down he didn't want to depend on anything.
He's planning a ride to north slope this Febuary.
I'll try to call him and see if he can do you any good in Whitehorse
That would be great if he can hook me up with a place to crash or refer me to a cheap motel. The best I have found in Whitehorse is $85/night. I'm going to take it slow and not get into too big of a rush. I have a window of a few days for the job in Vancouver. Then there is no time limit for the rest of the trip after that.
