Went for a hike around a lake near by
I took the ferry from Skagway to Haines. It was nice to try out the Alaska Marine Highway but I will look forward to getting back on my bike and being on my schedule and not someone elses
This is not what it looks like
It is nice to have friends like this. I am staying with my friend in Haines Alaska who seems to know everyone in town.. I have been here only 30 minutes and I have already met the town mayor! Gotta love small towns! And his house ROCKS!!! What a view!
Damn Ed just saw your report and as usual the wine is flowing..............I like the photos, but where is Barbie? No backpack with her riding along ? Glad to see that you are kind of staying dry but it will change since you can ride up north and go through 4 different season in one day. Keep doing the miles and have fun.
Are you planning on doing the Dempster or the Dalton? Plus Telegraph Creek is a great side trip out of Dease Lake on the Cassair Highway. Keep a good distance from the bears, they will not play fair !!!!!!!!!!!:eek1
Good to see that you have some tools with you.......
Stay safe, and have a fantastic time. Hopefully when you are back we can ride again in Baja like before.
Hello Ed, are you interested in a riding partner going into Mexico, South America and the rest of the trip. I live in California and would be willing to join the ride. Regards, Martin, F800GS
You should learn the name of your favorite place in the world. That is Playa el Requeson. Next time you come this way, PM me and we'll meet up.
Hiking up the Mt Rininsky Trail. It was so fricken cold and windy at the to, I thought I was going to die
Pretty mushrooms along the trail
View from the deck of my friend's house in Haines I stayed at. I wish I could have sstayed longer but winter is coming
Everyone says that the bears up here are not friendly and they are NOT! I have been trying to pet them but they keep running away from me
I had to stop for a picture here at my new favorite restaurant in Tok, Alaska
to let his friends and followers know he made it to Prudhoe Bay, AK last night. Once he has wi-fi he will upload more pics and share in his adventures. I'm so proud of this man!
Baja looks awesome! Getting some great ideas.
We are heading that way in September. We are currently in New York after having driven down from Alaska, across Canada and the US.
If you are up in Alaska you should definitely check out Denali. We didn't recon much of Fairbanks but headed up to Chena Hot springs maybe 50 miles North. The camping wasn't great, but was cheap at about 15 dollars a night.
Some photos on the blog...
Chena Hot Springs - one of the best hot springs ever. Just place to warm up after a cold rainy ride
Rock climbing at Angel Rocks near the Chena River
No bears gonna mess with me now
aka the Dalton Hwy
aka the Pipeline Road
aka the long muddy road
at the Arctic Circle, heading north
just over Atiken Pass heading to Prudhoe Bay on a beautiful day which I understand is rare
It rained the 150 miles all the way to Atiken Pass. And the mud made it a scary ride
Here is where I set up camp on the Bay. There were bear tracks right next to my tent and in the morning, I saw a Grissley about a half mile from this spot and heading my way
Here's dinner that night.......roast beef and beans with a 1995 Taylor Fladgate LBV Port
