    HAPPY!!! The first batch of I MADE IT TO TUK stickers, several thousand, are now IN TUKTOYAKTUK!! They have arrived! Annie has told me how pleased they are with them. They will be going on sale shortly. She has promised me that she would be the very first client!! Annie and I are going to talk tomorrow about what else we can do together for Tuk. Maybe patches? Reflective stickers? We'll see... In any case, THANK YOU to all who have contributed and please, if you still believe in this project, share it with others. We'd like to keep going and give Tuk that little bit of extra help. Really very happy right now!! For those who have not yet donated, if you'd like to,

    Leaving D.C. for Tuktoyaktuk in ten days. Departure is 28 April. Will be transmitting along the way and from Tuk. If you'd like to know my transmission times/frequencies, send me a message and I'll copy you on my spotting method. 73 to all and may the bands be with me.

    It’s done. My very long, boring for some, dizzying for others, time-lapse covering my Spring 2018 ride from D.C. to Tuktoyaktuk.

    Should you choose to watch the whole film, you will subject yourself to a 55-minute ride across America and up to the Arctic Ocean

    The film starts where I started, in Washington D.C. and makes its way across the entire U.S.A., up through Alberta, along the entire mythical Alaska Highway, through Whitehorse where I met up with Anne and Eddie, and finally up the Dempster from Dawson to Tuk, passing through Eagle Plains and Inuvik. If you like long distance riding, I encourage you to watch the whole thing. If, however, you'd like to just watch portions, by all means, no offense taken, I have listed the milestones below.
    • The first 11 minutes take us from Washington D.C. to Dawson Creek, B.C., in Canada.
    • The Alaska Highway portion starts at: 11:40.
    • The Dempster Highway portion starts at: 24:06.
    I list my thank you's in the film, but allow me here to especially thank all those who donated to the Thanks Tuk campaign and to those who bought an 'I Made It To Tuk' sticker once they got to Tuktoyaktuk.

    I hope this film will inspire you to travel up the Dempster. If you do, be respectful of it and thank all those you come into contact with; remember, they live there.

    Enjoy, but I repeat, watch at your own risk and please, don’t tell me it’s too long, I know, I was there!
