BenzyPalooza 2015: The Yukon

As the title states, Mrelbe and myself are planning a trip to Whitehorse, Yukon spring / summer of 2015.


Really...we are just talking about it. Floating the idea. Kicking it around. Fleshing it out.


What say you?

Depends. If you bring the MGA....we'll definitely need a tow rope.

That is quite an undertaking, and weather the weather is kind, quite a gamble...................

But then again, you live on the edge.............................

Why not hit Anchorage...................................

LOL


If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself and saved more money
