Re: DAMN rider in exile on the Dalton Highway

Yeah, it sucks lol. They've asked me to stay up here for the winter; I've got a line on a cheap winter beater with a heater, plus I still like what I'm doing, so I think I'll be working a bit longer. Fairbanks is a great town... I should probably look in to getting a snowmachine (thats what they cal...

Re: DAMN rider in exile on the Dalton Highway

Despite falling asleep flat out on the ground, I slept wonderfully well and woke up to bright sunny clear skies over Coldfoot. Unfortunately I also woke up to no food, as the kitchen was closed except to supply their buffet... which was empty. Grabbed a gatoraide and ate my last two clif bars and he...

Re: DAMN rider in exile on the Dalton Highway

I slept fitfully at best, maybe a solid 2-3 hours tops as the bright sunshine and construction sounds from the gravel pit 10 miles away conspired to keep waking me up. By 730am I gave up, packed up, and got on the road. Saw my first critters in camp: http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb84/skierd007...

Re: DAMN rider in exile on the Dalton Highway

More great scenery as the Road stretches off into the distance... http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb84/skierd007/Alaska%20summer%202012/Dalton%20Highway/david00-R3-005-1.jpg At Mile 115 on the Dalton Highway, the road and this rider crossed the Arctic Circle. Not a soul there, so I had to settle ...

Re: DAMN rider in exile on the Dalton Highway

Riding, more riding, some more riding, and a little more riding. Not much else to do, as if you stop the mosquitos try to carry you away. I did stop at Caribou Mountain as the sun started to 'set', and by set I mean run along the northern horizon. Looking out over Caribou Mountain, near Finger Rock....

Re: DAMN rider in exile on the Dalton Highway

Just as I stopped to get my shot of the sign I heard the unmistakable sound of a BMW Boxer over the din of the mosquito swarm coming up from behind. I was more than a little surprised to see a sidecar rig on a 1200GS, with 2 guys, from Delaware. They seemed to be enjoying themselves at least, though...

Re: 2012 DAMN Hatfield and McCoy Trip - April 19-22

While you guys were having fun in Best Virginia, I was doing some road exploring of my own up here. Just outside of Fairbanks on the Parks Highway... http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb84/skierd007/Alaska%20summer%202012/parkshwy2.jpg http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb84/skierd007/Alaska%20summ...

Re: 2012 DAMN Hatfield and McCoy Trip - April 19-22

Sorry guys, I'm out... I'll be into my second week at my new job in Alaska. :freakey: DAMN right I'm riding up too. :thumbup:

I'll be back eventually, probably maybe. :peep:
