I'm putting this out to see if anyone is interested in joining us. We should be able to take another eight vehicles or so. I will post the info for sign-up after the first of the year. No registration fee if you're wondering.
Edit: I guess the NWOL put a registration fee in if you're not a member of NWOL. And I believe the registration fee is the same as a year's membership fee. I guess you might as well join NWOL and then register for "free" for this event.
Plan is to leave Bellingham WA 16 August 2019, run the Dempster Highway all the way to Tuk, kayak a bit in the Arctic Ocean (Beaufort Sea - kayaking optional), then return to Bellingham by 2 September. It will be a fast paced trip, and we'll be sticking to a timeline (start/departure times and length of stop times will not be determined by the slowest person or "when everyone is ready"). We will have just over 5,000 miles to cover in only 18 days. Tentative route below (gray line up, blue line back).
Pace vehicle will be a four-cylinder Jeep TJ with a kayak on the roof pulling a small trailer, so we won't exactly be speeding.
If you're interested, email me to send you more info at firstname.lastname@example.org and put something like "NWOL Arctic Ocean Trip " in the subject line. I will send you more information to help you decide if this trip is for you. We want to have fun.
