@Centauri sounds like a nice trip honestly, I live right here in Louisiana and we vacat to golf shores once each summer. I’m still planning my goal aswell, thinking about building me a cabin like him and his wife do on this channel to change the scenery and weather because Louisiana is garbage. Hunting, fishing or working off the land is nothing new to me so I think I’d fit right in lmao

@B-rad from Malibu it's good for people to live their dreams no matter what age. I have a dream of taking an old boat I have that needs alot of work down to the Gulf Of Mexico. It's 490 miles down river from me, takes about 4 or 5 days one way. Would be an adventure. Great thing about my boat is that it's aluminum and light at 24 feet it's only about 900 pounds and trailerable. So My Uncle said he would drag my trailer down to Mobile or Gulf Shores and pick up me and the boat if I would like. But 10 days on the water doesn't sound so bad. Another good thing I have a four stroke outboard for it so good fuel mileage. Unlike the 2 stroke on it now.

First of all I have to say big thanks to you. I found this video about two weeks ago. Incredibly, I found myself 20 years ago in this video. I am the Japanese with black hair in the past two minutes. I was there exactly!! It’s my first solo adventure that kayaking Yukon. I could clearly remember my precious memories in this video. I appreciate you made this video. And thank you so much for Neil and your family. I had good sleep on raft cabin at that time. One more appreciate to you guys from Japan.

Dear Dave and Brooke, I have watched this raft trip several times and each experience is so entertaining and enriching. I was 77 on 12/27/21 and am still very spiritually vibrant. However, severe orthroartritis handicaps me such that my former normal adventures are mostly verboten. Thus, I very much vicariously enjoy every video you both produce. Just 10 years ago I was able to engage in all the exhiIariating activities I witness you doing. I ask not for any pity but joy that I so enjoy your wonderful visual productions. Thank and bless you and your wonderful son and daughter so much for the gifts you have given me. Blessings, Larry ductions. I cariously

Thanks David for sharing your adventures. An adventure I had in Alaska was back in 1959 when the town of Fairbanks only had 3 roads and all were dirt. Ahh the memories. Your memories will serve you and your family for many years. I had returned to Alaska in 2014 and that same hotel you folks finished in we also finished that excursion. I recognized the bar and the background. By chance did you folks ever raft the Yukon up to Circle. In 59 that was the furtherest point in North America one could drive. Great little village. Again David Thank YOU!! really enjoyed ....
Bushradical 3 yıl önce
Thanks Barr B. Ive been up to Circle dozens of times. Back in 1998 when I first cam to AK, I was working on Eielson Air Force Base finishing Concrete and I would drive up to Circle for the weekends and hang out on the river. No, we never did raft up that way...we always started farther down river. The river by Circle would be tough, as its very braided and always changing.

Thanks Dave! Great Video!! I actually had the pleasure of meeting Neil and Lauro this past summer when out on a boating/hunting excursion. Went out with some friends and their boat broke down just before the bridge and I ended up stranded I dont know how many miles down the Yukon. I know we were close to the villiage just down the river. They came and recovered all our gear and myself. Neil asked me, "hey did you happen to see the brown bear that came in and checked on y'alls camp"? Unfortunately I did not see him, I did however get some great video of a Lynx that wanted to check out the camp after a few messed up moose calls. Lauro was impressed with the camp I had dug out of the sandbar. Susan and I are hoping to get up with them here soon to go on an adventure in the Yukon!

A fantastic journey,well told. I've watched a few videos of smaller rafts journeying down rivers in northern Europe. Personally I used to go canoe camping on rivers in the UK, the kids loved it and the dogs never stopped smiling. The kids all promised that they'd take their kids one day. Running down a river with no noisy engines nature comes to visit such a tranquil journey. Many thanks for sharing made my day.
