Today our canoe arrived! It’s foldable and lightweight, so we will be able to carry it across the mountains with us and make our route a more authentic copy of the Klondike gold miner’s journey. It took a while to assemble correctly, but turned out well in the end.

Getting Into the Spirit of the Trip
We have been preparing physically for a while, and have been preparing gear too. But mental preparation is also important. Visualizing the hardships helps build resolve. In the spirit of that, here is a picture of us, Imre (top) and Peter (bottom), panning for gold. The Klondike Gold rush drew over 100,000 people to the Yukon between 1896 and 1899.
Map of Our Route
Here’s a map of our 2100 mile route. It starts in Alaska, does a quick pass through British Columbia, crosses the Yukon and then completely crosses Alaska, east to west, to end at the Bering Sea.
