Reading the River by John Hillebrand. And I never want to paddle the whole length to the Bering Sea. If he had trouble with a canoe with motor in late August..it took away any desire.
Go earlier..There are people over on myccr.com who have done most of the Yukon.
I will in two weeks have done only five hundred miles. Except the river is moving so fast that the locals here guess we will do the Teslin/Yukon from Johnsons Crossing to Dawson in eight days.
Thats sixty miles a day. The river is cranking about ten mph in Whitehorse this evening. We will be on the river tomorrow.
