A lengthy story of starting a new chapter in my life
I have now embarked on a new adventure in the Canadian Western Arctic. In January 2010, I accepted a fisheries resource position in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada. That’s why I traveled twice from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for business reasons in January 2010. After my travels to Winnipeg were completed, I flew to Inuvik at the end of January 2010 to look for an apartment. Once I found an apartment in Inuvik and got started with my new position, I flew to Whitehorse where I took a few Continuing Education courses at Yukon College and packed up my personal belongings.... After I completed my courses at the College in Whitehorse, I packed up my car (i.e. the Jimbobmobile) with a few of my personal belongings and made the very long and isolated, but VERY spectacular drive from Whitehorse to Inuvik (with overnight stays in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada and at the Eagle Plains Lodge on the Dempster Highway). My dad traveled with me when I drove from Whitehorse to Inuvik just in case I had an emergency along the way (e.g. sliding off the road and into the ditch on the isolated Dempster Highway). Thus, my dad traveled to Inuvik with me for safety reasons (my dad will be flying from Inuvik to Whitehorse in the next couple of days). We arrived in Inuvik earlier today, and I’m happy to report that I had absolutely no problem with my car while driving from Whitehorse to Inuvik earlier this week. I wanted to travel on the Dempster Highway in the winter because most of the jagged, sharp rocks are covered with snow and ice in the winter. Those sharp rocks are very notorious for causing a lot of flat tires in the summer along the Dempster Highway. Because we traveled on the Dempster Highway in the winter, we didn’t get any flat tires on our drive to Inuvik. I took nearly 670 photos on my drive from Whitehorse to Inuvik earlier this week. Of course, I took more than half of those photos on the VERY spectacular Dempster Highway, which is the only highway that crosses the Arctic Circle in Canada. I will be uploading a lot of those 670 photos on to Flickr for the next couple of weeks (or perhaps for the next couple of months). I’m not sure how long I will be living and working in Inuvik, but I expect that I will be living and working in Inuvik for a few years (maybe longer than a few years!) That means right here on Flickr, I will be uploading photos and videos that I will be taking and recording in Inuvik and in other places where I will be traveling to. If you do decide to travel to Inuvik on the Dempster Highway or fly to Inuvik for business or vacation purposes (either in the winter or summer), there is a possibility that I could bump into you in Inuvik. Inuvik's population, by the way, is approximately 3,500 people. I’m looking forward to interacting with the people that I will be meeting and working with. I’m also looking forward to learn extensively about my new position in Inuvik. But one thing for sure....it’s going to be VERY interesting to live and work in Inuvik. It is also going to be very interesting to experience the 24 hour daylight in Inuvik in the middle of June (i.e. when the summer solstice takes place). This is a photo of the famous cinnamon bun that I bought at the Braeburn Lodge while making the 530 kilometre drive from Whitehorse to Dawson City on February 15, 2010 (this photo was taken in Inuvik on February 17, 2010). My dad and I bought two of these massive cinnamon buns, but we ate one of those buns while driving from the Braeburn Lodge to Inuvik. The Braeburn Lodge is located about 90 kilometres north of Whitehorse on the North Klondike Highway (i.e. between Whitehorse and Carmacks).Ze 4th
Day The first time I saw a 4th of July fireworks display was in Louisiana with my roommate Josh. We scurried over to Shreveport and sat on the banks with all the locals. Fast forward to Seattle time. I forget why I was so far up by the university earlier that day. Anyhow, I rode the Burke Gilman Trail to Gasworks Park and had plenty of time to find a good spot. I forgot my bike lock so I had to drag my ride around. Even with the front wheel off it took up a lot of room. Pretty cool display as they had an ANG chinook fly in with a large American flag flying from the belly via a weighted cable. Almost made me proud to be there (I'm Canadian). Missed the the last two 4th of July celebrations however. I was in BC hiking the Rockies for my friend Damjan's sorta bachelor party. It was a lot of fun but really quite tiring. Last summer I forget why I missed out. Was I back in Winnipeg? Need to check my photo log to see what I was doing that day. Anyhow, the thought of getting squashed in Gasworks was really unappealing. Instead I snaked my way through residentials until I found a nice lookout. The vantage point is a little boring but at least I couldn't smell too much of the people around me (one guy stunk of the beer he was drinking and the smoke of his cigars). What I found more interesting is something on the irongate fence where I parked the car. "A mari usque ad mare" presented as the motto of a coat of arms that I knew quite well. I've lived in Canada for most of my life and I'll always have strong ties to it. The US has been home off and on for 4.5 years. Pretty darn great country too...eh.
