So I am going to Alaska for some backcountry non- bike related adventures in August with a buddy who lives up there. His wife is pregnant, and they are concerned about me coming straight from the airport to their home. One possibility I have contemplated is skipping the flight, and riding up. Trip would be from Jackson, WY to Delta Junction, AK. Google calls it 2600 and change/45 hours taking the scenic route through Jasper. Sounds like the perfect plan, except time is a little tight. Our backpacking/sheep hunt is 7 days, and I can manage 5 on either end for travel. Is that completely insane to consider riding? Would be my longest trip by a ton. I’ve done back to back 5-600 mile days a few times. They are long but manageable. I’ve not done 5 in a row, and 5 days means riding rain or shine all day. All this is of course assuming Canada is open to that sort of thing by August. Also would likely be 100% camping (I’m fine with living out of a tent for 3 weeks). 5 day ride, 7 days backpacking, 5 day ride. 5300ish miles. Stupidist idea you’ve heard all day, or great adventure?
