    That looks like a sandhill crane.

    Awesome trip report. Especially after the way it started. I was reading it at the beginning, and figured maybe you'd cancel. Glad you didn't. :clap

    Great ride report, I need to do a long trip like that to Alaska. But like anyone else trying to find the time away from work.

    Alright, here's what I have for a Dalton Video...this is when the Go Pro refused to record any voice and was actually pretty unstable for some reason :huh but I've put a video together and added some strange youtube music to put some noise to it :lol3 So I hope you like it...it's all I have to offer :cry

    Very nice ride report and pictures. Looked like it was going to be a very short one at the start! Glad you got it fixed and motored on. Too bad the timing of the rain, but you kept going. I like the captions on the videos, nice job. Thanks for posting it.

    Thanks to everyone that viewed and commented on my Ride Report!! Finally getting back in the swing of things being home now. KLR just turned over 30,000kms and is still running strong!

    Photobucket appears to have blocked my photos stating that I've reached my bandwidth for the month but apparently it will reset again soon and the photos will be back up.

    Decided to add a short video that I shot from my crossing of the Denali Highway #8. The sun came out a bit around Susitna River, so I took some video. The mic was messed up on the Go Pro so I've added some music to the clip. Hope you enjoy it.

    That was the trip that almost never happened. And you persevered when it did. Nice little video Rob. I'll have to ride there some time.

    Thanks Mike! It's a trip that you kinda have to experience for yourself in order to appreciate the full effect of it! :evil

    So after a few years, I finally got around to making a full video of the trip! Here it is:

    Thanks! It was a long trip! I could've taken a bit longer to complete it but the weather was rather annoying and I ended up just riding distance most of the time and rarely stopping! If I ever get to do it again, I'll take more time that's for sure! Still it was enjoyable and an experience I won't soon forget! I never did add up the costs...I'm not one to want to know how much I spent on something! LOL! If I had to guess, maybe around $3,000...I spent more time in motels than I was counting on! Thanks for taking the time to watch the video!
