    Thanks for visiting!

    Excellent video. Thank you for taking the time to shoot, edit, create and post it!

    Many great parts to the video, she did an excellent job of catching different angles and lighting. The wolf was surprising and a little spooky and that shot of the sign post forest really puts perspective on it not seen before and the under bridge flight was way cool.

    Excellent all the way around.

    Now I really want a drone! Good job...
    I gotta get back to Alaska, did the paved loop in 2011 on a rented V-Strom, and like you, hit the good weather jackpot.....
    Wasn't chased by wolves though, maybe next time...

    No problems flying with Air Canada, was suprisingly easy. I did have the dangerous good certs sorted in advance and needed an agent for getting the bike back into the UK when I came back which I also sorted in advance!

    We were so lucky with the weather, and I guess with the wolves!

    I wish you were posting another vid. I just watched your Ak one for the 3rd or 4th time.

    Thanks again.

    Great video, brings back memories from my trip in 2019 (though I tried to get up the Dempster instead of the Dalton).

    Great Drone work too, though at one point early in the video I went "That's out of order, that pull out and small lake is on the Cassiar" ;)

    You got super lucky with the weather on the Dalton!

    Thanks for sharing the video.

    awesome video.
    looks like something a mini film crew would put together.
    you do this for living?

    Excellent video! Thanks for taking the time to create it. The drone footage was outstanding, adds perspective. And yes, marry the GF.
