HO FOR THE KLONDIKE !
Following the Yukon's Historic Chilkoot Trail
A group of men and women race on foot and by canoe, along the same Trail of 98 used by the goldseekers who thronged to the Yukon in 1898. As they travel down this unchanged route they comment on what it must have been like for the original adventurers who did not have the modern conveniences they enjoy, (DVD Cover, left).

VIEWER COMMENTS

"The program did an outstanding job of capturing the uniqueness of the event. I was constantly impressed and surprised to find the Goldis in isolated places where one wouldn't expect the media to venture. Their efforts were well reflected in the quality of the final product that was aired..."
- John Firth, retracing his grandfather's footsteps, Whitehorse,YT

The two Kates: Kate Moylen above) follows in the very footsteps of the early enterprising women adventurers (above) and Klondike Kate of 1898 (left).

Danger on the Chilkoot, then and now.
Cynde Adams (below) explains how she rescued two overturned hypothermic canoeists from certain death, in a remote region, so giving up many positions at the front of the race to do so. "If that was God's purpose for me to be here. Then I'm happy with that" she says
Through the Five Finger Rapids on the Yukon, where many gold-seekers overturned their boats.
He went for gold in 1898. Yvonne, at 65 decided she was just the right age to follow in his footsteps and find nuggets of her own..... to fill the pages of a book of fiction she's writing on the Chilkoot.
No, I'm not really dressed to go on the trip this time. I just came down here to see the miners off," says Madame Spitfire of the Purple Onion, a Skagway dancehall at the trailhead where the climb began and the miners left all the comforts of civilization behind.
"The videography was spectacular! You captured the magnificent beauty of the Yukon with your cameras. Thanks for doing such a great job!!!"
