yup, about a 200km extension, Inuvik to Tuk, to support energy sector work. the next thing will be a pipeline starting at the ocean, crossing into YT, then back into NWT and south. the pipeline with need a road, just like the Dalton, maybe 1000km. PM me when the Chinese finish the pipeline and road, we'll ride that one for sure.
i'm happy to keep ya informed on Canuckistan current events from 6400km away.
i've been up in that area 3 of the past 6 seasons, plus it's 10 days of transit at 1200km/day out and back. i've got some new roads in mind, not quite as good, but way closer.
on your D2D ride, use the Cassier both ways. don't go near the Alcan until the 37 intersection, thank me later.
Dave - I'll thank you NOW!
I've been up the Alcan ALL the way TWICE, part way MANY times, DOWN the Cassiar TWICE, but only ONCE to Inuvik (...till this June...
). I agree on Hwy 37 - that's my plan BOTH ways, including Telegraph Creek (first time) and Stewart/ Hyder (second).
MY thoughts were that THIS coming Dempster ride would PROBABLY be my LAST...
THEN you tell me that the road's going thru to TUK!!!
BTW - want the latest on the Commonwealth...?
