Familty transportation is quite different in the north country. Here four Intui youngsters travel on dad's four wheeler in Gjoa Haven. Swanson's party met two individuatls who claimed to be direct descendants of the explorer Amundsen who nearly lost his ship, Ghoa, after running aground. The town of 1200 is named after his ship.
