We Made It to Alaska!!!
« on: August 24, 2018, 11:36:06 am »
After 11 days, 3,750 miles, and 4 National Parks (2 in the US, and 2 in Canada), we finally arrived in Hyder, AK. This is the furthest from home I've ever been in my 47 years. It is truly beautiful up here.

I'm not....   :P



I keep hoping that "someone" in the "Northwest" will put on a National {hint, hint (Charlie/Gumby/other's)} so I can start my ride from there.  
 :threadjack:

Getting back to the discussion; Kris, what were the road conditions like, as you got into Canada/Aklaska?

Ride safe, Ted

The roads were fine. The smoke going from Banff to Prince George for pretty bad. There were some places you couldn't see more than a few hundred yards. My jacket still smells like smoke too.

Now we're going to head back to Prince George tomorrow morning, and then down to Washington. We've got 17 more days to ride wherever we want. I'll keep you updated. You can also follow my blog at https://thekrashsite.wordpress.com. im a couple of days behind due to no data, and spotty internet at the hotels.
