    Hi Jim – it’s relatively easy, though it depends on your bike. If you take the Stewart-Cassiar Highway north through BC, you’ll need at least a 250 km range (preferably more). On the Dempster, there are two fuel stops then you can fuel up in Inuvik — but you’ll have to cover 370 km from the start of the Dempster to the first gas station. After that it’s about 180 km to the next, then 180 or so to Inuvik. Throughout the north, 150-200 km between gas stations can be pretty normal.

    David, I’m thinking of doing a similer trip. Have easy ( or hard ) was it to find fuel?

  • David Webb Nov 16, 2010 Link

    Yes, I do – but I am thinking up upgrading to Final Cut Express.
