    Leaving Smithers BC. 255 km to my first delivery point. Nothing to do for 3 hours but enjoy the view.

    Sounds tough, but someone's got to do.

    So now I'm going to be heading somewhere up here. This is where it can get interesting.

    I took a lot of photographs on my latest trip. I'll post some of them when I'm back in wifi land, but there's one that I'd like to share right away.

    I was heading south on Highway 37, which runs from the border with the Yukon Territory to Kitwanga. There is construction going on, and the road was temporarily closed. The traffic was building behind me and this motorcycle overtook the line of vehicles, and stopped in front of me. The last thing I expected was to see that the license plate was British. I don't get surprised on the road very often, but this guy and his wife made my travels look a bit sick. They are on their way from England (the north by the sounds of their accents) via Europe, Russia, Mongolia, Korea, the USA, Alaska, Canada to South America, Argentina to be precise. Wow. I'm impressed.

    Must be one awesome trip for them!! I think you'd probably need a year off to do something like that!

    Thanks Maura. This one is from a couple of years ago. It was taken on the ice crossing over the Mackenzie River at Fort Providence in the NorthWest Territories, about 300 km from Yellowknife. At this point the river is about 1.4 km wide. I'm told that the ice is 16 feet thick, and it needs to be. The river is still flowing under the ice, and the trucks I was driving at the time could weigh anything up to 63 tonnes.

    Apparently I've been sleepwalking since I missed this thread completely.

    This is a great idea. Great pics all.
