Aw, that's too bad the road was closed. It was a great trip. And yes, a very small world up there. I wonder if/when the walker made it to Argentina.

I had great weather helping me out on the ice road; it's much easier to stay alive (and comfortable) at -20 C than at -40 C.

I’ll give a second ‘bad ass’ vote!

Just missed seeing you in Inuvik! Kirsten (spouse) and I were there on 4th March. We came to do the same thing ... sort of .... drive the ice road before it became extinct. To no surprise to you, we weren’t able to do that ‘cause it was -33 c with +70 km/hr winds ... road was closed! We did see the Japanese walker though between the airport and beautiful down town Inuvik. More small-world moment too- Daniele and Simon’s the two Italians that you met were going to stay with us through Warm Showers - their plans ended up changing so we didn’t meet them but had many email exchanges with them.
Enough about us - great accomplishment- and truly bad /frozen ass!

Cycling and camping in those conditions - you are definitely a badass!
