GPS Coordinates for Eagle Plains on the Dempster Hwy

Since Eagle Plains along the Dempster Hwy in the Yukon doesn't technically show up as a city or village on any map, including any of the Garmin maps, does anyone have the exact GPS coordinates?

Tap, tap, tap... is this thing on?

Perhaps this forum doesn't get used too much since I find it difficult to believe that someone around here with a GPS who has been up the Dempster Hwy doesn't have the coordinates of Eagle Plains in a saved track.

Huh. Looks like I'll have to ride up there myself to get the coordinates.

I live in Inuvik, NT so I ride the Dempster all the time. I use the Canadian Map in my 276C and all the roads in the Yukon/NT are on it.
