Re: 2017 Arctic Ocean Run via the ice road

First meeting done today. It looks like we'll have a pretty solid group. Approximately 10 rigs. Learned a lot from our friends north of the border, especially about border crossing. We all left with some small assignments and recon to do such as gas distances between gas stops, places in Canada to buy Sceptre gas cans, Aurora forecasting, etc. At any rate, it's starting to get real now!

As I was reading through each page, I was just about to write the same about the Milepost. It was invaluable on the AlCan . . .

Nick, sending you a PM . . . and I'm subscribed..

Sounds like an epic trip. Being 80 miles from the border I feel like I'm half way there.
