Not Again!

... so I slowly drive a few miles to a bridge overpass and parking lot, where I check my drawers. It is raining hard when the boys come, and we take refuge under the bridge for lunch. Nothing is said about the near-wreck.

We drain our spare gas into our tanks, again trying to avoid too much water entering our tanks. We continue on, towards Atigun Pass, and the high-point of the road. Its still raining hard when we come up and over, in fog, rain, and wind. ...

Who's idea was this?

... and listen intently to his tales. We leave him and finish our ride on pavement to Wiseman, where we have the artic retreat B&B for the night. After we eat a spaghetti dinner, we wander out with our cigars to discourage the mosquitoes, and the scotch to soothe the body aches. We find a fire ring with wood stacked nearby on the gravel bar by the river, and in light rain, sit by the campfire for hours.

Denali to Fairbanks approx. 125 mi. ...

The hut is nice in that you can be inside with hot drinks and snacks and pop out when the aurora shows up. We had been ...

Bettles: Day 2

A travel blog entry by journeyguy


March 5th Bettles AK Crashed around 8 PM with alarm set for 11:30 PM. Sky survey at that time showed no stars and light snow. I hung around at the main lodge with some other members of the nightwatch for an hour but it soon became clear that there was going to be no aurora viewing this night. Back to bed. Morning: Big waffle with cream and blueberry sauce plus several cups of coffee to jumpstart the sleep deprived adventurers. Spent a goodly chunk of the morning ...
