Nice job on the videos! I hadn't watched any until this most recent one, so I went back and checked out some others.
I liked the creepy dance bits. The white mask in the Blue helmet was trippy.

Nice pics. I'm incline to agree with Spicy. Ride safe and get to the south fast. All kidding aside, enjoy the trip south and hope you find your colors.

The trip home is the worst part for me. Going back to reality.....sucks!!!! We have friends that we vistit about every-other year in Sturgis and this last trip I bawled like a baby when we left. It really tore my heart out. They are both in their late 60's to early 70's, and I just felt as though this would be our last time together.

Anyhow...thanks for the ride folks. I'm really enjoying it. Be careful and enjoy the rest of it.....it's definitely a trip of a lifetime!!!!

Dunno what you are smokin' but you are posting your crap on the wrong thread.
1) I don't smoke, tobacco or dope. That went away in the 60's, probably before your were born.

2) This isn't your personal thread, you don't make the rules. We are a diverse group of riders and as such we have different opinions about what constitutes good equipment and we share our opinions.

3) My opinions are based on real life personal observations, not on anything else. You may not agree with them but this is an open forum wherein we exchange information and ideas. It is not where we throw insults and inflamatory remarks at others. Grow up.

Absolutely awsome pictures, trip report and your good warm-hearted spirits! Love the picture you took at Tombstone on the Dempster. We are sorry we couldn't tackle the Dempster due to continuous problems with our wheel on the hack this summer. Looks like you're the first hack that tackled the Dempster and made it to Inuvik...kudos to you two. Great video clips too...makes me laugh and kinda glad I'm not out there right now. Ride safe and hope you get home soon. -Sharon + Elmer

Dude. Take it easy.

#1. Yes, that was before I was born. Your point being...???
#2 - No it's not. Nor is it yours.
#3 - So are mine, or maybe you haven't seen my ride reports. As for the grow up comment...see #1 above.

#4 - Back to the regularly scheduled program!

And what a great program it is! I am sooo impressed with the young ladies toughness and tanacity.....my wife would have bailed and took a plane after the 2nd. day of mud....or cold....or rain....or Grizzly Bears ? You two have a great return ride and you may want to step on it for a few miles...we don't need no stinking "Ice Road Report" and I don't think you want to give us one....I am glued to the screen! Love the videos...Great Stuff .....let's have some more!




Like they say.......opinions are like.......what was that they said? ....Oh ya......everybodys got one.....

I make the rules Larry.

Please keep your detracting comments out of this cool ride report by these nice young folks.

You have strong opinions based on your experience. Start a discussion about it in the hack forum & defend them as far as you want.

This is your only warning.

I don't like this road report anymore. They are making me too jealous. Just kidding. Fantastic reports. Keep them coming. Hope you have great weather all the way home. IT is really a pleasure to read your reports as well as most everyone's comments about your reports.
