In Episode Two the team continues to tackle the Chilkoot Trail with 3000 lbs. of period appropriate provisions. After resolving issues with the First Nations packers and after many long hard days climbing the notoriously steep Golden Staircase, they reach the Canadian border with all their goods but must pass an RCMP inspection before they are allowed into Canada.
