    I start with a photo of a rider I met in AK - Federico Kano from Argentina

    He's a master of low budget traveling in my book.

    My wingman and I were on our way to Alaska last summer and, refueling in McCall, ID, a fellow from Texas rode in on this:

    He said he was riding Tok where he kept an aircraft. He spent the summers flying people up the the glaciers on Denali. He was quite a character!
