The series of Beav's videos should be filed in a separate folder. It would help in navigating the series

We're working on that, once all 14 are up. Hang in there and enjoy them in the meantime.

Hard to top paddling on a river that's already pushing you along in excess of 5 mph. What an adventure...

BeaV

During the first 6 episodes, you gave the impression of a quiet unassuming gent with a vocabulary void of four letter words. A man at peace with nature and his lot. Very zen-like.

After the "operator error" at the rapids you proved me wrong. Not only do you know some four+ letter words, you can really string them together too.

Boy did you lull us into a false sense of security! Loved it.

My zen must've been wearing alittle thin. First with "his lot" and later with "nature".

Nature can be beautiful but it is brutal and unforgiving. Maybe I was just getting tired of being pushed around.

Those rapids, standing waves and the volume of water scared the crap out of me....... I was paddling toward river right before Beav :)

I started the sequence by viewing Part 7, the Upper Yukon River, because I wanted to jump right in to the section of BeaV's trip that I knew. I've twice paddled the Yukon River Quest canoe race, Whitehorse to Dawson, and also twice the Yukon 1000 mile race, Whitehorse to the Dalton Highway Bridge. BeaV's video and still photos put me right back there. I study the river intently, every turn and island. I could tell where he was in virtually every frame, as if I was also there paddling along.

My own wilderness hiking trips are most often bushwhacks off trail, and BeaV's alone on the tundra crossing is the kind I relish as well. Once the Yukon grabs you it never lets go. I plan to return for another YRQ in 2015 and again for the Y1K in 2016. Thanks, BeaV, for keeping the adrenalin going. I will finish viewing the entire series very soon.
