He's made great time on the way up.

I'm glad I gave him my spot2 to use. It makes it fun to follow the trip. Next time I'll splurge and get the tracking feature hooked up.

Wonder how the bugs are.

We figured the Spot is accurate to within about 100 feet... so I sure wondered what the heck he was doing in the middle of the Peel River.

I've been trekking in Tombstone.. Definetely a hidden gem of the north.

I love the Dempster Hwy. I can't think of any other road I'd rather be on in the summer.


Love this RR.

It would be cool if you could maybe meet up for a coffee and a bite to eat somewhere around 100 mile house on Friday.

I will be watching for him.
I'm still packing. Trying to be the Guru of travelling light but my sidecase with tools and spare tubes is 28lbs. I will likely be 60-70 lbs of gear when packed. Next bike will have tubeless tires.
