Lake Laberge-Carmacks

 

The Yukon River carries a lot of water this year. Along the river there were many floods. Our engines (20 & 25 hp) are hardly able to cope with the current. A return trip with the catamarans against the current is not possible, we have to change our plan....

 The old Woodcamp is decaying more and more, but what really annoys me is that some stupid Tourists use the remains as firewood, how stupid is that ? 

Thats why I always say:

Be a Traveler Not a Tourist !

Arrived at the wreck of Norcom (Evelin) !
Since the water is extremely high we had to moor in the bushes, Lutz fell into the water and almost got under the catamaran...

 

He was very lucky not to drown, thats how quick things can get out of hand in the bush !

That's why I'm always pissed off when people don't listen to what I say! Beginners are very quickly arrogant in the bush because everything looks so easy...

  My new Garmin GPS with the touchscreen is really awesome ! 

I had thought the touch screen was a gimmick, but I quickly noticed that the handling is so much faster !
