Loving the pics

Now i'm able to see the pics and relate them to what your sharing with me on the phone! The picture of you "skiing" on your feet makes me laugh - reminds me of your "sled' ride on Baldy! LOL!

Hey Ed,
Terry, myself and another will be through southern Alberta/BC next week.
Let us know your route and timeline and maybe we can connect.

Wayne - he was heading into Canada Thursday evening and will most likely be in CO to visit his brother by the time you and your posse were hoping to meet up. But... he could surprise us all and end up staying in BC to hook up with you guys!

Kenai

Here's a glacier you can see from the road. It is unusual because it is in a valley and not spilling off a mountain. I will bet this one will be gone in a few years. There are not many like this left in Alaska and the only one I saw from the road

Dr Rod

I got a kick out of this banner. I wonder what Dr Rod does at night when he's not pulling out fish hooks?

Russian River

Better than National Geographic!!!
There were so many fish that you could reach in and grab them.
I will post a video as soon as it uploads showing how easy it is to fish in Alaska.
I will never pay $15 a pound again!

Here is my best camp spot so far. I brought my big bike down on the ledge and I wasn't sure if I was going to get it back up the hill. But I made it up

I did a 26 mile kayaking trip to a tide-water glacier out of Valdez Alaska. It took me 8 hours and I was dead tired. It was raining and windy. The water near the glacier was freezing and it had some icebergs floating in it. The owner of the shop didn't believe me that I made it all the way to the glacier until I showed her these pictures. If I had to do it over, I would not do it again. If I would have fell in to that water in that tippy kayak, I would have been dead in 5 minutes

In Dawson City, coming in on the Top of the World Highway, I saw these kids running the local radio station. They were blasting death metal. I asked if they were playing Cannibal Corspe and the kids couldn't believe that I know what was playing. And then when I told them I saw them in concert, I knew I was their hero and they could have cared less that I was riding a motorcycle around the world

In Dawson City, you need to have a Sour Toe Cocktail



It is a shot of liquor with a guy's big toe in your glass. Here's the toe




Here I am signing my life away pointing to the toe



Down the hatch!!!!!!!!!!!!!
