Yukon travel

Trooper,

Give us a shout when you get close to the Yukon. I may be able to give you some ideas about areas of interest. Camping, things and places to see. I have traveled the route you are planning but in reverse from South America to Canada (home) so might be able to help with any questions you might have.

Yukonneely.

Hi, Im from CHile and because of my work (that I hate) I can't go to far on my bike, but if you will be here in Chile on my vacation period (jan-feb 2010) maybe I can join you on your "going down" trip from Santiago to I don't know where in the south. I also know many beautifull tracks from Arica to Puerto Montt, and I will try to travel more to the south in that period (jan-feb 2010). I ride a KLR650

Hey, im leaving Prince Rupert, BC early June +/- the 6th going to St-Johns, NL. Returning for august, either gonna hit up the great North on the way east and if it's still too chilli, will take the northern route on the way back. Will visit each province and territory, doing 2 months of work when I get back, and then taking off for Argentina following the pacific.
