Not the NWT, but have spent alot of time in the Yukon.

Walking outof Diamond Tooth Gerties (in Dawson City) at 2am and having to put on sunglasses as you walk out the door....in May...

It is not a brothel...it is a casino...

The Bison population up there is amazing. If I recall my facts correctly, it is largest free roaming herd of Plains Buffalo that is disease freein North America. The population is maintained at about 3000 head. They are amazing animals, and I have seen some very up close...one charged me and stopped about 30' in front of me as I was hiding behind a tree...I wasn't sure the tree was going to stop him..lol...

Rock-Solid: definitely am going back there again one day, the scenery is unbelievable.

That's what sort of interests me. Doing some major road-tripping of sorts, see if the Gas Money is worth it.

bowvalleymike: ... buying a new one at a dealer in Whitehorse 'cause the cost and time of fixing a seized brake on his bike up there was too high.

I'd imagine things are more scarce and thus far more expensive.

dtpb: I have travelled to the NWT quite abit as a lot of my family live there.

Good Roads or Axle-Killers? Many Motels, Ameneties and other Services along the usually travelled Roadways?

My O'l Alma Matter, In The Yukon the Dragon Fly's and The Choppers are both Heavy Lifters, so Watch Out...

In The Yukon, POF is simply a wish list, to remind us that Women do exist Somewhere, just Not where we are at...

In The Yukon, if you get hauled into a settlement in the dead of winter, you may suffer a shotgun wedding come spring, because Fresh meat is hard to come by & Yukon women tend to be Horney as a result they rarely give up their men, nomatter how they got'em...

Blind Date's are Big and you may have to travle 400 miles to get there, eventhough she only lives 30 miles away...

I spent a winter working in Noman Wells back in the mid 70s. No neat stories....was dark and cold and that is about all that stands out.

I've been to the Yukon. Spent a little time in Whitehorse and Dawson City in 2007. I would like to see NWT and Nunavut someday.

No Word yet ... lol

Without alluding to Gender or mating Habits, it makes Sense that People tend to stay together when its very cold and the Days are short.

I do have some awesome pics if anyone would like to see my album..

Too bad I missed out posting on this Thread Years back.

Never been up there, but, during the summer months, it is beautiful, so, I gather, sun never goes down completely, 24 hours of sunlight, guess that is why they call it,
"Land Of The Mid-Nite Sun".

During the winter months tho, they use the frozen MacKenzie River as a main transportation corridor up there.

There is a good video movie clip on the History Channel website, called
"Ice Road Truckers".

It is about a bunch of truck drivers, who drive the plowed out, frozen over MacKenazie River as an ice road, to transport heavy equipemt, and such, to a drilling rig, that was being built in the Artic Ocean, to drill into the Artic Ocean for a form of natural gas.

It is an awesome video movie, really gives ya good prospective of what life is like, up in the Artic Region, during the winter months.

Cold, cold, and freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezing cold.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I lived and worked in many communities in the NWT's for years.

Regarding the buffalo though. They are, Woodland, Buffalo; much larger than
Plains, Buffalo. They are the largest land animal on our Continent.

I enjoyed the Eastern Artic the most though. The small Inuit communities.
I have many stories, but you would need to go there and expierance the place to be able to put my stories into context. Yes it is that differant there! Air travel is necessary though, and costly. I worked as a carpenter, Eastern Artic, Western Artic, and High Artic. Lots of fun, and many memories. Maybe a couple of kids too!

Ticket Man, you would not be able to handle it. The whole place opperates on Federal Tax Bucks. Must maintain sovernty, and all , you would not believe it.

Some of the Inuit have gone from the stone age to modern times in as little as two generations. I lived with a gal that was born in an igloo "no shit". Her parents did not speak English. there family ran the Hamlet Council. Controlled the town, sorta.

don't know if the OP is still making travel plans

I was more or less hoping to get personal Takes on it rather than just 'Google' Links, which I have already looked up myself.

Most People tell me to forget it, traveling costs too much, and too little to see for the Money. Further, I'd only go in the Summertime, but then I hear the Mosquitoes will get you alive.

And those I have spoken to didn't exhibit much Excitement about the N.W.T. either, so I have decided to pass on that for now.

On the off chance there might be anyone interested, or if you know anyone that was ever there...

Former residents of Clinton Creek, YT, the mining town that shut down over 30 years ago, are gathering this summer for a town reunion, in Whitehorse.

July 24, 25, and 26, 2009.

I didn't make it to the Yukon this past summer. Trip was cancelled. I hope to go this summer though. We are working on it.

I sure hope the Yukon gets it's own forum section on here but I hope it's not restricted to just the Yukon as I went to highschool there and I am hoping to see some old school chums on the forums.

OMG - I didn't see this post until today. I lived in Clinton Creek when I was in grade nine so that would have been something I would have been interested in attending. How did you hear about that BE?

I just saw your post today. I am in contact with many former residents Clinton Creek, YT and Cassiar, BC. As you know Cassiar developed the mine in Clinton. In fact I'd not be surprised to learn we have several mutual acquaintances, many of which I am in touch with now. I'll write you private message.

It would be My Guess that The Yukon Forum is NOT going to arive any Time Soon...



Since Tickettoride, The OP of this Forum Thread is Long Since Gone from POF, it is a for gone conclusion that POF has lost another of it's founding Fathers...
