My alaska trip (TX to AK)

Sorry I am just posting this up here now. I am in Fort Nelson, BC on my way up to Alaska with my wife on our wee. We left Texas about a week and a half ago. I have been trying to keep a pretty detailed blog here:


www.2texans2alaska.blogspot.com

I always enjoyed reading about trips where the people doing it had the same bike as I did. I think it seems more relevant.

I am planning to write up a proper ride report and post it in that section after we return.

Bike is running great, and as long as the rear battlewing makes it to Fairbanks, then we are in good shape

That's a fine adventure you and Nikki are having Jordan. Excellent pics. It is great that you are doing it while you are young.

So neither of you were inclined to play "Slap the Grizzly" when you saw him?

What was the retired guy riding?? Since I am one of those too, I am always curious to see what other old fudds are riding around the country.

He was riding an 08' Goldwing. I was jealous. It's like riding on a recliner

Wow, what a good time you and your wife must be having. Thanks for sharing your blog. The pix are very cool. It may not be Alaska, but I'm going to take the long way home on my 75 mile commute tonight.
