While in Montreal Andre reached out to me with an offer to host me. I owe Andre and his wife Claire a huge thank you as I ended up staying a bit longer than planned. Because of a Friday meeting in Montreal being postponed until Monday and then raining all day Tuesday I ended up staying 4 nights in their home. I am so appreciative of them for letting me stay that long.
Andre and Claire had spent many years in the Yukon and were quite familiar with Yukon, Alaska and Northern BC areas. It was most enjoyable to discuss potential routes and pick their memories for different ideas. I am excited to say that thanks to Andre and Claire I am making a few adjustments to my route to give me some more time in Alaska.
