in June of 2004 we left Crystal Lake Il in our Bigfoot
21 towed with our '02 Tahoe.
on the way we took a side trip on the Dempster. We however did not prepare for the crushed slate road, it eats tires
Got above the Arctic Circle camped in a great little spot. already had two flats on the truck. Decided to call it quits. started return trip next day with another slow leak. Had two more flats on the truck and one on the Bigfoot
. total five flats on the truck and camper.
Everything turns black from the slate road.
It really taught us how to batten down anything which could possibly move.
What an incredible trip, my wife and I will never forget it. We loved every minute. Did flyfish while waiting to get flats fixed, caught a couple of small Graylings. Got up to see the midnight Sun and wolf prints in the hardened mud as big as dinner plates, thank God it was daylight 24 hours.
i'm sure anyone whose made the trip will never forget it.
