Information Age

In searching the internet for information on the Chilkoot Trail and Kayaking the Yukon River, I came across Dick Postma's website. I sent Dick an email with many questions. Dick was kind enough to call me and give me the skinny on his adventures, precautions and gear. Dick is a retired LA Policeman. As such, not much scares him, he did however, reveal to me that he wished he had taken a rifle on his Yukon River Adventure to provide that extra level of comfort with the bears. He witnessed a couple of bears ripping apart a canoe at a camp at one point in his Yukon river journey. Thanks for the phone call and the info Dick. Much appreciated. Check out his website... good reading. http://www.qnet.com/~dpostma/
