    I just had a wonderful conversation with Mrs. Ora Stewart of Anchorage
    Ak. She had a wonderfull story to tell me about a trip her and Her
    husband took down the Yukon river in 64. They put in in Eagle and
    pulled out in Circle. She said it was written up in a british paper.
    Anyone out there have a copy? I will be going to see her car when I get
    home in a few weeks I'll bring the digital camera and send out some
    pics. I'm still hunting for that lost Alaskan Amphi hidden in a barn in
    Telkeetna or some such place... You know the one. The 500 mile job for
    50 bucks.

    Somewhere amongst my Amphi literature I have that story, there were 2 cars,
    one red and one white, that traveled down the river, camping overnight on
    beaches, a sort of dave the wave adventure !

    How far did you say that river trip was, I believe you may have said
    something in an earlier post.

    I was looking at a map earlyer to day, not a very detailed one but it
    looked liked 125 to 150 as the crow flyes. My guess would be close to
    200 with all the twists and turns. Ora told me they would have gone
    alot further but gas was scarse in 64. These days I don't think gas
    would be such a problem. Heck if you had a chase boat you could go all
    the way to the Dalton Hwy bridge. Not sure how far that would be maybe
    I will look into it.
