New highway to the Arctic Ocean

I've always said that the best boat you can own is the biggest one you can trailer. Here's a reason why....

Having flown to Tuktoyoktuk with the family, I don’t think they really want a road.
Reason is if your a tribal member, you can get onto a free Beech 1900 flight to Inuvik, several times a day.
I’d assume maybe that would stop if there is a road?

That place, and it’s people were interesting, and not what I expected at all.

Oh and during the winter, there is an ice road, but in Summer, it’s all swamp, over permafrost of course.
There are these geologic features called Pingles, that if you weren’t expecting them, I wasn’t, are very interesting, they look like tiny volcanoes, and look like they could have been man made, but aren’t of course.
