Sep 18 2012: Sleepy GSes on the Cache Creek back roads

Around the bend I see Neda standing over her sleeping GS. The road switches back on itself as it steeply ascends one of the mountains and the inside line that Neda's taken is full of sand. Her recumbent bike becomes a cautionary tale and I take the outside line...

Sep 13 2012: Hot Springs, Buffalo and Crashes

The Liard Hot Springs is the second-largest hot springs in Canada. It's still pretty cold out, about 10C, but the waters are 42C in the "cold" pool, and the 52C in the hot one, the constant steam rising providing an eerie backdrop against the bathers in the springs.

Sep 11 2012: Out of Gas in the Yukon

All the gas stations are closed and when you're empty, 3L doesn't give you a lot more range, as the gauges on our bikes have barely budged at all after refueling! Then again, GS fuel gauges are notoriously inaccurate. Mine came with a sticker below the gauge reading, "For Entertainment Purposes Only"...
in Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, Canada

Sep 09 2012: Chased out of Alaska

As we arrive at the campsite, a couple of Eastern Europeans hop out of a rental car at the gas station and ask what kind of tires we were running. Strange question. They told us that it was snowing heavily just an hour east at Destruction Bay! We assured them we were staying put for the night.

Sep 07 2012: Frozen solid in the Kenai Peninsula

We're introduced to a new Alaskan term, "Termination Dust". No, it's not a military bio-chemical weapon, it's the first trace of snow that appears on the summit of the mountains around southern Alaska, which signals the start of winter. As the last days of autumn start counting down, the termination dust starts creeping lower and lower until it reaches the ground.
in Homer, Alaska, United States

Sep 03 2012: Anchored Down in Anchorage

During the night, a storm whipped through the city toppling down trees and power lines. Weather equipment recorded 210 km/h winds before their data feed got cut. If we had tented, we would have woken up in a tree somewhere in Oz.

Aug 31 2012: ColdFeet in the Arctic Ocean

The mud on the road quickly multiplied. This was the Dalton's final assualt on us. My speed dropped to a crawl as the motorcycle wobbled in every direction but straight. Traction was non-existant. The high and heavy weight of all the laundry detergent and potato chips from the Prudhoe Bay Hotel threatened to topple my GS at every inch.
in Fairbanks, Alaska, United States

Aug 29 2012: Beating the Deadhorse

The Atigun Pass climbs 4739 feet above sea level, and as we make the ascent up the wet, gravelly road, we encounter white-out conditions, the shoulders and mountain-sides slowly accumulating with snow. Our speed drops, not only because of the road conditions, but because we are also busy marveling at the amazing views unfolding before us.

Aug 28 2012: Getting ColdFoot on the Dalton Highway

The Automobile Associations refuse to service the Dalton, not considering it a proper road. Any catastrophic breakdowns/crashes along the way will involve you hiring a private towing company to come out and fetch you at $5/mile back to Fairbanks. My mental calculator was working out how high the financial stakes were the further north we headed.

Aug 26 2012: Top of the World to the North Pole

The patchy pavement quickly turns to gravel and starts to climb up above the timberline. We're on the Top of The World Highway, one of the most northern highways in North America. It probably got its name because most of the road rests on the spine of the mountains that overlooks the Yukon to the north and colourful valleys on both sides of the ridge.
in Fairbanks, Alaska, United States

Aug 22 2012: Striking Gold in the Yukon

The original buildings were built right on the permafrost land during the summer of the gold rush. However, once the winters came, the warmth of the floor melted the waters of the ground underneath and caused the first structures to cave in on themselves.
in Dawson City, Yukon Territories, Canada

Aug 21 2012: Fake Alaska!

Hyder is the southern-most city in Alaska accessible by road. There's way more bragging rights in saying, "I rode all the way to Alaska!" than, "I rode all the way to the middle of British Columbia!" But now you know: Hyder, Alaska = Fake Alaska...
