What preplanning did you do for possible medical emergencies...map of hospitals similar to gas station locations???..or did you just "wing it"...almost caught up on episodes.

Damn!!!
You have just out done yourself this time Oisin!!! Absolutely excellent!

I have to agree with your thoughts about the Rockies and the far Northwest.....spreading down from Dawson City to Calgary etc.

It is a region that gets under your skin and you just can't get it out! I look forward to getting out there every other year or so. I just have to!

Once again ...Well done my son!!!

Great in site on the Jasper, Banff, Canmore area. You sounded like a local with your wisdom.
Regarding your first aid kit, do you carry a sewing needle, and dental floss? In a pinch you can use it to sew up a wound, or sew up a large cut in a tire tube before you patch it. (It will keep the cut from running out from under the patch).

I can't wait for the next video.

Looking forward to the Little Big Horn...just went through that area a few years ago, love the history. One thing struck me strange that day at the entry gate...an Indian collected my money to get into the place. That whole day i didn't want to talk to anyone, I just wanted to be alone with my thoughts and think about what was going through those guys heads that last day of their life. Having served in war it had some type of strange profound affect on me. I could feel the spirit of those men with me that entire day. I've had a couple other people tell me they felt something there unexplainable..

A doctor friend of mine recommended superglue... if you get a gash that needs a stitch you can superglue it together... thankfully never got to try that one out!! :-)

Thanks for the kind words about the Canadian Rockys. When someone who's seen as much of the world as you have speaks so highly of it, it really makes me appreciate my back yard even more.
For all people for all time sums it up nicely.

The best video yet...you had me reaching for my seat belt with that zap hyper space thing and a couple other little tricks you put into that video.
You're turning into a video Star Wars type big guy.

I'm thinking you got something up your sleeve for the little bighorn.

Only thing missing..the concession stand with the ten dollar coke and popcorn.

Yes for sure. My understanding is that the original design creation for superglue was for closing wounds. The only difference from store bought superglue and the surgical superglue in hospital is they add a color dye to the medical glue so we can see where we put it. (I'd hate to get stuck to the patient). LOL.

Great advice, glad you never needed it either.

Love your blog. Cannot wait for more

Just finished watching your 30 th episode. Great work, and really enjoy your commentaries. As side note, last year next day after Canada's day I was passing through after having camped some 30 km South of Jasper (all hotels were fully booked and I barely found a tent spot given that it was Canada day). Some pictures are in my RR blog below. I had done it a year before as well, last time accompanied by ex wife just few months before unbeknownst to me she decided to divorce after 25 years together.
So for all it's beauty, I was overwhelmed with this heavy feeling of remembrance of my past life, that made me speed through it. I know that's screwed up. I got a hefty speeding fine doing around 75 mph (I think speed limit is 90 kph IIRC)

Keep up the good work. Am also reading your second book. I hope you are making decent profit with the e-books so you can travel and post some more.

Cheers,
Vic
