wow great RR...your photography skills/editing are amazing and loved your adventure of a lifetime. WE loved up there too and btw...we use the Panasonic T3...we like it! You also make riding through the Atigun Slippery Pass look easy sitting down two up! Good on you both!

just read thru the whole report tonight as Hurricane Isaac was trying to force its way inside and not letting me sleep!!! (i'm in Morgan City)

your photos bring back some great memories, you have a superb eye for small details, i covered a lot of roads you were on last year...and wonder how i missed some of what you saw

i head out on monday for another 30,000 miles and looking at your photos i would leave in the morning if it wasn't like it is outside...this site is so inspiring thanks to guys like you who do ride reports at such a high level

Not only am I caught up, but I went back and read the John's Canyon RR too...
(sorry I missed that one the first time through)

Yep, guess you made rocky uphills your favorite!



After all those stunning photos, it's going to take a while for my eyes to re-adjust to boring, bland reality

Great report I enjoyed the entire thing. It's fun seeing couples enjoying adventures together.

The only problem with this report is now I want to go to AK again. I've only seen a small portion which I enjoyed but seeing so many ride reports where the few photos and description of the Haul Road shows it as bland and nothing to see I decided it wasn't worth the trip. Now you go and show me that it's not bland at all and there is a lot more to see than just a shot or two of a gravel road, pipeline and a truck or two. Thanks, I think

Your photography is stunning, you have so many great photos in this report but my favorite is still the rainbow because to me it really shows adventure and the beauty out there.

Happy anniversary to the two of you and thank you for sharing your ride with us.

You all have viewed my photos 1.1 million times in the last month!

Just for you guys, I made this one look a little nicer.

I have never seen as many awsome photos... on any ride report.
What sort of cameras did you carry? (Ignore that, found the cameras).

Thanks, TwilightZone.



I took another approach with this photo from Ten Mile Lake, British Columbia.

Wow!!!

I'm only on page 4 so far. Great pics and ride report. We just did a lot of the same roads in reverse. I even took some pictures at the same places you did, but they didn't turn out as nice.

Thanks again Dave, I just noticed the flowers along the road in that last pic does your editor allow you to add them
I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.

Hi Bob.

I don't even own Photoshop, so I couldn't add anything to a photo. It would be really hard in summer to find a stretch of road in Alaska without flowers.

This is relaxing. I am procrastinating yard work in triple digits.


Just for Bob.
