    I believe I camped beside you in Eagle Plains, I left before breakfast because of your weather report- Great ride that morning. I miss being on the road and camping.

    Thought you might all want to know. Apparently Tuk has already sold over 1200 stickers, in just one month! We're making a difference. I am currently drafting up a new set of stickers, and patches. We did good people!!

    Got to TUK on July 1 with lots of holiday activities going on but nothing open (that I could find) to buy anything. How can I get a Sticker or other items that would benefit Tuk?

    Because I'm not a fucking asshole... Well, okay, sometimes (maybe) according to my wife, but not in this particular case. So now I made my own fucking sticker and will stand by to see how I can help and get one of those real stickers.

    Please see my facebook page for more pics, news and buttery goodness.

    Does anyone know why they covered up the native language that was originally on the sign?

    Thank you for asking, I was wondering what was under the white boards when we saw the sign on June 16th. I hope it was something simple like a spelling mistake and not something more.

    I finally made it to Tuk , after spending 2 and 1/2 weeks in Dawson trying to find a person smarter than myself, I gave up and fixed
    my worn hub in a campsite by myself with the use of a hatchet

    I was lucky enough to be there when the locals were harvesting the first Beluga whale of the season and got to try some raw Muk TuK
    The Muskox chilli at Beluga Burgers is not to be missed , you can find it in the yellow tent next to Stantons

    Hey Knight, glad to hear you sorted it out! You might be the first to ride from Ushuaia to Tuk!
