Main Stage with Duane Pilson

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm:

Adventures in the North Country - If you have ever had the urge to travel to the Yukon Territories, Northwest Territories or Alaska but have been put off because of stories about the roads, weather or insects. During this seminar you will be informed about the truth of what it’s like to head for any of these destinations.

RV'ing provides you with the opportunities and time to fully experience the fantastic scenery, the people, the wildlife and the highways’ history. With some of the world’s wildest and beautiful National and State parks, cultural attractions, adventure tours, incredible scenery and absolutely unforgettable experiences.

In the summer, visitor amenities, including gasoline, tires, food, information facilities, motels’ lookouts, rest areas and RV parks are numerous along the entire well maintained Alaska Highway, Deh Cho, Klondike Loop and Dempster Highway. Just remember, that although the major northern highways are well maintained, with weather, muskeg and permafrost you could experience some construction delays.

The seminar will provide you with information on highway, weather, insects, campgrounds, attractions and anything that will help insure your adventure will be a trip of a lifetime.

Duane has years of experience planning, and travelling through these distinct and different destinations, so the seminar will include not only visual but also humorous stories, anecdotes, tips and northern items.

Time permitting will do a quick over view of the Deh Cho Highway in the Northwest Territories
