I'm in Nebraska now. The trip east has been dust devils in the desert, wheezing engine at 12,000 feet, amazing lightning storms better than any fireworks, and neglected farm roads in Kansas. I'll finish the report when I'm home, it should be less than a week.

Weird...I rode the whole of the Dalton three weeks ago and didn't see one other biker. Luck of the draw I guess. Cool report, BTW.

Oh, and Barb, the butt pad I got from you before my trip (8k+ in 24 days) was one of the best $50 I have ever spent. Thanks a lot.

The 60 miles from the edge of the arctic circle to coldfoot was beautiful, but mostly paved. For the people who rode to the sign and turned around, they missed an easy payoff by not doing the easiest 60 miles on the haul road and seeing at least some of the foothills of the Brooks range.

When I arrived in Coldfoot there was modern looking rest stop style parking lot and building to my left right where I'd turn right to go to Coldfoot camp. It is a very modern visitor's center that included this nice topographic semi-globe of the arctic circle, which is where I realized how near I was to the Brooks range and that I could ride through all of it without going to Deadhorse. This meant I didn't have to repack for a gas can again.

At the pumps in Coldfoot camp--basically a rough looking but full featured truckstop with a post office.

This was as good as truckstop food gets. A blue-gray bird with a fuzzy head about the size of a bluejay thought so too. It kept hopping between the backs of chairs right across from me watching me eat. When I finished and set my plate aside, it hopped up on the table right next to me and started picking off bits of hashbrown.
