Fantastic write up and pictures. What an adventure in such extreme conditions.

I have to remind my self to never be drinking coffee or anything when I read your posts. Your sense of humour is excellent.

Shining up my bike, and getting out of the cold -10C garage!!!

Safe journey

Epic Arctic Ride

Wow, most incredible ride! So, I might of missed this but are you using any heated gear such as vests or jackets under your outer gear? Seems your able to ride with only a light under layer. I noticed the heated shields. Really enjoying the report, thanks for taking us along.

Joe, Paul and the rest of the crew,

Amazing RR, can't wait to see the video clips. I feel your pain of the cold I live in Fort Saskatchewan (near Edmonton) the temperature these days brutally cold. Too bad about the twisted tube in Joe's bike, doesn't matter how good the brand is when you get sloppy work it sucks. As a mechanic it pisses me off to see this type of work, some people don't care. I wonder if he would like to break down in the middle of nowhere at -40???

I have seen all of Joe's and Flora's video clips and was amazed at the quality of the work, thanks for taking the time to document your adventure.

Thank/Merci


Garry

HEY good buddy, long time! Good to see you're at it again.

As usual, looks and sounds like you're having a great time of it all.

And as always, thank you so much for taking the time to share it all with us.

Like many, I do so enjoy reading your stuff. Oh yeah, might you happen to remember where your ex-FB friend got the "lifetime deal on leopard pattern underwear?"

You're the best, Paul. Keep it up. Warmest regards from your Alaskan friend, Mark H.

Hey Buddy! How the heck are you? It is nice to hear from you. You know that you are in many ways part of all my trips. We will have to cross paths at one point. No way out of that one.
Thanks for the kudos..

I also extend the kudos to everyone else who took the time to write in here and follow me/us on this wild one.. Life is short and I love to share this stuff with those as passionate as I am.. In all honesty?? Sharing it and having fun with others is big part of the whole thing. What good is life is you do not share with others??

As always, I'm thoroughly enjoying your daily photo sets and updates, Paul.

And as Tom Waits would say..."Hang on St. Christopher, on the passenger side!"
