Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS: Absolutely fabulous. So real and entertaining, we ordered all of them and I'm so glad we did!...

Your DVD's were done very well, the music is incredible (great taste in music, by the way), the scenery is spectacular, and the human side of your story is so interesting....

I particularly appreciate the interview you did with the couple that took the trip with you. The woman's comments were informative and helpful; I also enjoyed all of the interesting folks that you met along the way...

I found you're DVD's to be a refreshing change from the Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman (Long Way Round & Long Way Down) type of adventure...Your DVD's capture the charm and magic that is 'one man, one bike, the open road. Quite simply you went for a ride and took along a camera!

THE MOVIE: "Alaska to Labrador Highway" is the 6th in the "Burro Has Three Wheels" DVD series, that circumnavigate the roads of North, Central and South America, a Trans America Highway in the greatest sense.

If you're thinking about travel on the Trans Canada and/or Trans Labrador Highway TLH to Newfoundland Labrador by riding a motorcycle, car, or RV, this movie will make you smile...Beyond book format. The episode details a motorcycle road trip as far to the east on the North America Continent as one can drive to Happy Valley Goose Bay, Newfoundland Labrador.

After driving from Portland Oregon to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina in 2006 on the Pan American Highway, Gary Smith departs again, this time with newly purchased professional camera equipment ending up in Prudhoe Bay Deadhorse, Alaska, thus completing his top to the bottom motorcycle tour of the world.

Just getting into the groove he isn't ready to head home yet. Riding across Canada seems like it might be a good ride even if he doesn't stay strictly in Canada the entire way.

From Prudhoe Bay Alaska, down the Dalton and Alcan highways before heading to Happy Valley Goose Bay, Newfoundland Labrador, one thing is for certain, he will be avoiding the Interstate Highways, traveling the secondary roads as much as possible. Ride along in the BMW styled 2005 Troyka's sidecar built by Ural motorcycles.

"Alaska to Labrador Highway" provides viewers a preview to a journey from Alaska through Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Alberta, Montana, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ontario, New York, Quebec and Newfoundland Labrador.

Sit back and enjoy the reality of one rider's traveling experiences and adventure including: weather, road conditions, local people and a terrific blues sound track.

Format: DVD
This video could have been spectacular because those areas that were visited have spectacular scenery, but instead what should have been left on the "editing room floor" such as nonsensical digressions and musical vignettes, took the place of what could have been more information about and shots of scenery from a motorcycle trip that many people would like to make.

Owning a motorcycle touring business and having made numerous video and travel-log presentations, I do not make these comments off-the-cuff. People are interested in where you went and what there was to see. They enjoy concise and interesting information. My experience with this genre has been that people are not the least interested in shots and activities not related to motorcycling and the places visited.

This video could have been great because what was on-point was good, but the video was not. On the other hand, if you are looking for something folksy with lots of shots of the producer or want a tidbit or two of valuable information about the Haul Road/Dalton Hwy and the Taylor Hwy/Top of the World Road, this video may be of interest.

Gary Smith has given us an inspiring video account of his trip from the Prudhoe Bay region of Alaska down through the Yukon and BC, across the continent to Quebec and then the Trans-Labrador Highway. He travels solo in a Ural sidecar rig. In addition to great road footage, Gary includes entertaining interviews with many of the folks he meets along the way. The soundtrack includes a good variety of excellent blues tunes, too. I've watched my copy a number of times, and I like it a lot. It's a great video, but I wish there were more footage of the Trans-Labrador Highway, as I'd like someday to ride that route myself.
