For whatever reason, it didn't cross my mind to type up this trip. I started thinking about it again since I'm going to head down to Colorado again, in May (18 or so days). The day after I got to my final destination (Bellingham, WA), I immediately went on a weekend ride in Port Angeles where I lost my phone. I'd also apparently turned off cloud backup some three years ago, so all the photos from the trip were gone. Thankfully, I had been recording here and there with gopros, so I got still images from the video, and my daughter had a few photos she sent me. I'm doing projects on the property where I'm living, so updates will probably be a little spread out as I get photos together and rack my brain to remember what all I/we got up to. Travelers: Me, keetak on a 2020 KTM 790 Adventure R (only factory add-on was the cruise control, otherwise stock from the dealer, The Motorcycle Shop) Daughter - Headed to college in Durango, CO in her GMC Envoy The trip took me through AK, the Yukon, BC, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, California and then back north. I left Alaska on August 1, 2020 and arrived in Bellingham, WA on September 9, 2020. 40 total days, 7,400 miles (11,900km). Temperatures ranged from 33 degrees to 104 degrees (near Moab), with the longest day being something like 610 miles (980km). The reason for the relocation is simple enough. I'm divorced and aside from a cousin and friends, the only reason for me to stay in Alaska was for my daughter. Since she had graduated and was heading off to college, it was time to go somewhere the winters weren't so long, dark, cold, or white, or long, or cold. Did I mention cold and long? So, I sold stuff, gave stuff away, trashed more stuff, and eventually packed my entire life on the bike, and left the state I'd been born and lived in for just shy of 45 years. The bike during a "prep" trip, to my hometown of Valdez, AK about 2 weeks before we left the state.
