In September of 1999 - Labrador Retrievers 'Rufus & Cleo' (and of course their intrepid master Andrew and his dad Jim!) retraced the routes of the Stampeders as those hearty adventurers searched the Klondike Gold Fields of Alaska in the 1890's.

Sponsored by The Border To Border Expedition Society, TEAM 'LAB ROVER' was vehicle B2B-33 in "Trans-American Trek 99," which in the second half of the Trek, traveled these trails in Land Rover vehicles venturing through Alaska, The Yukon and Northwest Territories as far north as Inuvik (north of The Arctic Circle!) 

Numerous educational activities were designed to compliment this exciting trip: Daily two-radio contacts via 'ham radio'; e-mail/digital photo exchange; real time chat room; message boards; Web Quest, Treasure Hunts, Samplers and many other classroom projects.

Rufus & Cleo
Labrador Retrievers were the personalities for Team Lab-Rover and the B2B-Education division of the Border To Border Expedition Society. As the site developed, all class activities were conducted by these canine brains.
