Brian & Deya met in Vancouver Canada. After a few years together we were married and made choices. One was not to have children the other was not to take life for granted. The rest is yet to come.

The Plan - Canadian Arctic


It never occurred to me that the Arctic Circle should be a destination, yet after all these years and hundreds of thousands of kilometres around here and there I now understand. It's important, it's worthy, it's required. If we're really thinking about the rest of the circles then why not check this one out? Besides I've heard nothing but good things about the Dempster Highway.

The goal is to head up to the Arctic Circle in the Yukon during the Summer Solstice. There's a rally called D2D (Dust to Dawson) and there should be a lot of fellow riders mowing over the landscape. That'll be good in a pinch if things go hairy.

Some of the things we hope to see/accomplish are: long distance riding and head space, natural beauty and wildlife, new interesting people and places, solitude, tyre changes and direction. It's not going to be easy, we have 17 days to get up there, hang out then come back home for work. That means about 10-12 hours a day on the bike for a week, two days off then another week at 10-12 hours a day, awesome!

Both Deya and I are really looking forward to this trip because it represents a challenge, an unfinished challenge that needs to be overcome, I'll tell you about it some other time.
