It stayed in the 20's luckily........... Mclarren river lodge the first night. Flat light all the way in, lots of pushing and digging as we drove off the trail into sugar constantly. Picked up a few ptarmigan on the ride in, no caribou.
Left Sunday morning and the wind started blowing 60 - 80, more in the compressed valleys......fucking miserable. We ran into some caribou and my son grabbed his rifle......I started screaming at him, don't shoot that god damn animal, to young and stupid to realize we were in for a long day.
We had gear in case we had to spend the night on the trail........I'm glad we didn't use it. We stopped and talked about sheltering a few times.....had 3 moose in the trail ahead of us once, they were hating life as much as us and wouldn't leave the trail, that could have gone bad quickly.......getting in the trucks and heading home felt real good.
sounds pretty awesome to me. I love surviving the elements.
