Visiting Iqaluit

I've been meaning to post this for a while. Last month, while on Maui, I had lunch with Pete D of CarEnvy and now ContraVex fame. Pete has had some adventures, including visiting this out-of-the-way settlement. Enjoy.

14,741 miles by bus

I leave for Lima next week. I started this quest from the Oakland Greyhound station in 2007. I will be done by the end of January 2018.
