    Power lines? How about underground power?

    The pipeline is a wonderful playground in Northeast Wisconsin!

    Had just gotten my KLR back in '06 and went exploring.

    This is near the Eklutna area about 30mi south of Anchorage looking northeast down on the Knik River and Glenn Hwy.

    This one was a powerline construction road the first time I rode it, in 2012. It's Route 4B in Laos, currently being tarred, unfortunately. Here's the construction camp... and only tracked vehicles were getting this far in the wet season

    [​IMG]

    The ruts were up to a couple of feet deep (and more in places)

    [​IMG]

    When I got off the bike to chat to the construction workers, I found they'd pulled an AK-47 and had it on me the whole time I was talking to them from the bike.

    Back in Oz, in 2011, on the CREB track. I think it's Cairns Regional Electricity Board. We camped on it after a bike got drowned in one of the creek crossings... and then it rained on us. We made 7km in the next 24 hours. Slip slidin' away....

    Got as far back as I could, but then someone has not only throwing up some big rocks to block it, but a random gate. 20170529_183231.jpg

    Wow... I just realized Photobucket just dropped all of the original links from when I started this post. Here's a few of the original post.
