I've done them both. If you can't do both either one is still a great experience. Does the Mrs also watch Ice Pilots NWT
The Dempster is" way more" remote, The road of a life time!
The Dalton gets you to the Arctic Ocean though.

It would seem that Pluric took it over. Not that that's a bad thing.

Even the small bores wouldn't go any further.....



Their owners were pretty excited to have the sand done for the night.

They were feeling a little frisky and when I mentioned how I would caption the photos
in the Utard thread they erased them. I don't let people see my camera anymore.

My humble abode for the next month or so (and yes that is clear blue morning sky taken 10 minutes ago). As some of you know I am a retired Nomad and this is my pitch in Southern Spain till after Christmas. After that I will be returning to a cold and wet England to prep for my trip to the Americas. I will try and sneak in a quick skiing trip to Italy before I come over.

I will see if I can get a couple of copies of our local Jehovas Witnesses manuals for Pluric before I come.

I love retirement


Happy now Desert Dave ???

No problem, I'll have a couple guys waiting for you.

Looks like it's thirsty work being a Mormon. Oh well at least they are good looking guys. Every cloud has a silver rim !

We will be arriving in Texas in about early September. We have a rendesvous with some old mates in LA on or about 2 Sep and we will be riding East from then on intending to enter Mexico possibly at Laredo. So whereabouts on the coast are you ?

How can I possibly disagree with an argument like that?

My girlfriend and I did a northern trip last summer from Texas and caught the Dust to Dawson (not) Rally in the Yukon Territory around the Solstice, as well as rode the Dempster to Inuvik. D2D is highly worthy, and y'all could possibly be the guests who had travelled the greatest distance (last year it was a dude from Germany). Y'all have fun regardless!
