Each new Alcan helps us remember friends who won't pass
our way again, but continue to inspire and define our event.

A few participated once, many year after year.  Most died
of natural causes, others due to restless forces that made
them such memorable companions in our journeys.

2024 is dedicated to journalist Paul Duchene. He discovered Alcan in early 90's and returned as entrant or staff through 2020. Paul was an amazing resource and companion, for the musically inclined here's an excellent Youtube tribute.
Happy trails, and we'll remember you in the quiet Northland
