    It won't be me, as my small travelin' band of misfits won't reach TUK until 11:32 am on June 19th...2018.

    So I expect that a few others will be there before we will, and they should be able to post...and if not while they are IN the hamlet of TUK, they can post when back in Inuvik.

    And you'll beat me. I'm scheduled for a July 31st swim with the polar bears.

    Technically, it will be 11:32.314159 am.
    But, I didn't want to appear to be too anal about my precise schedule.

    Ride safe, thanks again for organizing the decals etc. I hope to make it ~6/14-6/16 and am planning a dip in the ocean and camping at least one night in Tuk. I already reserved a spot on the pannier with some painters tape for the decal, so I think I have to make it now.

    Rather than write up a separate ride report, and have readers searching all over these pages for reports....... I am going to post my ride info right HERE....on this thread.

    Two of us riding up to Watson Lake.....where we are joined by a 3rd member that is here....and we 3 ride up to Dawson City.

    In Dawson City we are joined by a 4th rider here.....where the 4 of us ride together up the Dempster Hwy to Inuvik....and farther up to TUK.

    Keep posted....pictures will be included.

    I'm hoping to ride just a wee bit ahead of everyone else. That way I will have plenty of folks to help me lift my bike from the mud...
    Still looking forward to lunch!

    Can we order them stickers off the internet so I can be a poser?

    We need to setup a registry so only once a person is verified to have been to Tuk, they can order swag. Like the IBA. Maybe run credit reports too, to keep the real riff raff from getting swag and sullying the Tuktoyuktuk brand. Would a wallet sized badge be too much, so you can just casually flash it when paying for coffee back home? Maybe we can work a co-branding thing with starbucks, show your "Tuk Card" and get a 10% discount.

    "I made it to Tuk" could be an empire! A "Members Only" for the ADV age.

    (I keed, but there better still be some fucking stickers by the time I get there. )
