Yukon river expedition - video by Milan canoe club

Check out this great video of a Yukon river canoe journey in 2008, made by Angelo and Calogero of Milan, Italy. They paddled from Whitehorse to Dawson and produced a great film with music and stories.

I met these 2 Italians at a campspot near Minto on the river, north of Carmacks. We spent an evening and morning together, taking photos, sampling Italian camping foods and swapping stories, while meeting up with a local river guide who has a cabin nearby.

See the video at Yukon 08 video at a great website, full of kayak videos from journeys around the world.

Old Kutie - 1977 OKanagan trailer 13ft (sold now)

The OK trailer that accompanied me to the northern trips is sold now.

A woman in Smithers at the laundromat said: Thats the cutest trailer I have ever seen!
I said: It is ok, but its older than you, was made in 1977.
And she said: Are you kidding? I am over 50, and a grandmother!
Well, you are the cutest grandmother I ever met! - said I.

And then added: look inside my trailer, I have something really cute in there.
