Good luck on getting your part. It really sucks when you have to delay your trip due to waiting. I ordered tires, (4 of them), from Ski of TriQuestCycles out of Santa Clara, CA. for both our Urals when we rode up to Alaska last month via the ALCAN and had the tires meet us in Tok, AK. at the Sourdough Campground. This was nice. The tires came and we did not have to delay our trip.
Have a safe and good trip.
We did pass you up there going the other way. One white and one green Ural.
Your ride report is excellent.

As the Tern Turns !

Bet that tall cabin was made with Lodgepole pines, amazing trees....
Insulated buildings speak of mighty cold weather in the off seasons.....must take a huge amount of energy to warm them up.
No food??????
Amazing steam boat, only when Sharon is beside it is the size of it readily apparent....would have been a blast to have been around in those days...I watched a video of four guys who built a raft similar to ones the prospectors used and cruised the length of the Yukon river, it took three years....hard to move in the winter.......
No food??????
The Arctic tern was a beautiful little bird, I wonder if they migrate and if so, to where in the winters....

Wow! They do! Only landing to breed and nest.
Bummer to wait for parts but then you'll be good to go for awhile....
No food??????

One helluva paddle wheeler though....what a beauty.....(wonder what they ate on those things....moose?) Reminds me of the Delta Queen on the Mississippi river....that was fun!! Much smaller boat though...

For your entertainment...episode III

Another 25 C day here in the Yukon that to my surprise has a population of only 23,000 souls while amassing 186,661 square miles. Brutal Winters....??

This is it: That's our daily Java hang-out.......Starbucks n' Tim Horton be gone!!




Genuine German Bread(Dimpfelmeiers) with Cambazola cheese..


By the order of "she who is to be obeyed", I got a Yukon clip to lighten the rig's load...????

BEFORE



AFTER




Slowly limped to a car wash to give the loyal dependable rig a scrub down..




Of course, I was careful not to powerspray blast sensitive BMW electronics, seals, etc, just gave them a surface wash..


Spic n' Span...

Changed another Hi-Beam light bulb. System seems to eat bulbs like candy..??


Headed to Wally-Mart and inquired whether I could do my oil and filter change in the parking lot. "Of course" was their reply and offered us even a catch bowl and paper towels. So, I purchased Mobil 1-15/50




The yellowish stuff atop the oil is the reflection of our shiny rig..eh...not
some goo...




Testament of what Calcium Chloride(CaCl2) on gravel roads do to bikes. With generated heat the chemical reacts and sticks like concrete to your pipes. Powerwashing won't do. Plan on chiselling it off in Fairbanks as there's more on the way to Chicken, AK..


Lunch at Finney's Fish n' Chips....good Halibut, but to measly a portion for $11.00 while a tub full of Fries...aarrggg (no food pics here...didn't want to torture our readers!!)

...A quote from your Wiki. article:

"exploitation in the past has reduced this bird's numbers in the southern reaches of its range."

..........Leave No Tern Unstoned?

ooh, Sorry, Sorry, Sorry.......

I wonder what I would look like with a trim? I've had a beard for thirteen years or more. My wife took a shot of me in the shop yesterday.

Photobucket

I'm really liking your trip. Hopefully Daina and I can do something similar someday. If I ever get my sidecar finished. I've been working on it for about 9 months now. Hopefully I'll have it on the road at the end of July.

Thanks for the food pictures. Were on a diet also. Have to lose weight!!!

Keep up the fun!!!

Ternabout is fair play

Stoned Terns, now that's a concept.... In the picture the Tern is sitting on a stone, will that do? But then it would be a Ternstone and not a StonedTern.
In the picture of the Tern on a post, that would be a PostTern or a TernPost.....
And then, no doubt, the Tern flying above obviously has a joint in it's little red beak, so now we have a:
1. A StonedTern bogarting to a PostTern
2. A TernStoned passing one to a TernPost
3. Actually Two Stoned Terns but then
4. TwinStonedTerns passing a joint which would make it a ....
5. TwoStonedTerns on a Post or..in the case of the first picture,
6. A StonedTernStoned.......or....
7. A Stoned StoneTern
Now, who's on First?
StonedKoi,
Koistoned,
Aaawwww shit....You started it Shaun.....

We're in the grasp of the YUKON...

Oh, well..the part w-a-s supposed to be here today instead it went from:

Seattle..>..Calgary..>..Ontario..>..New Brunswick... ????

UPS tracking says...."wrong routing.."..."power of attorney missing???"

So much for efficient UPS delivery in Canada....

We've stopped drinking at Starbucks and are making instant coffee/breakfast cereal in Yukon water....
