After my "warmup" trip through Labrador and Newfoundland in July, it was time to really see what the The Hulk and I can really handle. Had some butt puckering moments along the way but 16 days, 14671Km later, we both survived and got back in one piece.

I'm happy to say, this was really the only damage I suffered through out the whole trip (so far as I can tell so far). I was also expecting these to cause me some trouble. I had noticed that these M&R fog lights had come loose from some previous high speed off-roading. I was going to fix this issue before I left on the trip but didn't have the time. I did come prepared and quickly fixed it with some zip ties and tape. Two of the other lights were loose as well.

At the Athabasca Glacier viewing area all by my self (around 7 am). Not a single person showed up till about 30-40 mins after I got here. I had the whole place to my self. It was a little eerie but peaceful.

This place was simply gorgeous. I don't know what it looks like during summer but I feel like I picked the perfect time to visit. I didn't want to leave...

This is as far as I went. I wish I had 3-4 more days of vacation so I can drive all the way up to Tuktoyaktuk and dip my feet in the Arctic ocean.

A reminder that this highway is not to be taken lightly.

Thankfully Jasper opened up on my way back. The Chetamon wildfires had caused power outages and I had to avoid staying here on my way to the Yukon.

I have a large amount of videos/drone footage to go through. Hopefully ill update this thread with a video.

Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing. Also I have to ask if you got yourself Hyderized while in the Stewart area.

I had to Google both 'hyderized' and 'sourtoe' and glad I did that is excellent. I will save you some time if you are interested:

Might be a stupid question, but how do you get the amber signature lines to stay on for the front headlights? Is this a forscan thing? Or are you just putting the hazards on while capturing the pics?

Damn, that looks amazing. I’ve been wanting to drive up to the Yukon for a couple years now. I’d like to make it to Dawson City.
Curious as to how much planning you did before you hit the road? The biggest concern I have is with the smaller tank on the 2 door, just needing to be proactive with fuel stops up north. How much capacity does your Rotopax setup carry?
