I bet your power didn't go off. Damn -41 C same as -40F That's cold no mater how you measure it
Well... thinking of going to Tuk late June/July. Yukon and NWT still have travel restrictions though
wonder if they will be lifted by then. I'm not getting any younger
Yeah, I'm in the same spot. Waiting anxiously.
I think there is going to be a flood of people heading down the road once the borders open up. I was scheduled to go in 2020 and I do not have much hope for this year either. I plan to reschedule to 2022 as I want to hit both Tuk & Deadhorse.
Don't know when or if I'll get back again but I really hope so. I'm already starting to watch out for D2D and Alaska threads to see what locals are saying:
This guy is up there right now, hoping to plead his case so they let him ride on the ice roads so he can complete his journey. Good luck. They will have a huge line up if they let him in, me included.
Well, you DO have a hack too. Off you go! Or were you thinking of waiting for a warmer time?
The article mentions he was allowed to enter the Atlantic bubble, so maybe he has some talent for persuasion. Wish him luck. And if you hear more, please let the rest of us know.
Same, I’m hoping to do a return trip during the solstice. I’ll get in touch with the local band office as the date draws nearer to see how they feel about visitors.
I was part of the second wave there in 2018 and had to leave before the Aboriginal Days festivities. I swore to myself I’d go back one day
no good news
Well, when the time is eventually right, at least there will be somewhere to pee.
Thanks for posting this! Not that I have to pee.
From that web site, I bounced to this one and ordered the bush pilot book. Just google the book title to find a source to purchase, if you want.
I worked north of Yellowknife prospecting in the 70's, flying around the bush you met some interesting people (for lack of a more descriptive word)
Edit to add: the words I most hated from some of the most interesting pilots.
" hmmmm hope we can get out of here" after we have landed or my favorite
" hold the stick I'm going to grab a sandwich" and the most comforting before landing "that's where old Bob drilled er in couple years ago coming into here"
Reminds me of ...
"There's old pilots and there's bold pilots. But there are no old, bold pilots.
