Yellowknife Rideabout '12

This picture was the motivation for riding to Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories in Canada from Pennsylvania. When I saw it and learned of its history in Old Yellowknife, I just had to go there to eat! Ken Bruce and Jim Robinson also thought it was a good idea and joined me for the ride up. My wife, Leah flew in for dinner and rode with me for the next 3500 miles to San Francisco. I soloed back to PA. This is a photo journal of our journey!

Very nice. Gives me inspiration for my planned trip to Yellowknife this year. I wonder whether they have the bridge done.

I have a highly technical question. How do two of you manage to have the same "XPLOR" tag?

The bridge was supposed to be finished before winter. ...... ?? Ferry should be over .... we talked to the couple that worked the ferry and lived nearby. They said they needed to find other work in the fall 2012.

O & 0 look the same on the plate!
