The Famous DALTON HIGHWAY!


Once again thanks Gary from AK for this great idea for a posting.  It’s that time of year when many of you will be heading up to Alaska for your own adventure.  This time last year we were planning our own Northern excursion.  So, we are envious of those who will be making this trip.  The Dalton Highway is a MUST ride and getting yourself to Deadhorse in one piece would be the goal.  ;-)  Here is a great web site which has all the information you will need to learn about the Dalton and it’s services or should I say lack of services.  Bring extra gas and enjoy this unpredictable yet beautiful highway!

I have also included some previous posts of ours that shows you where we stayed and a place where you can change your tires or oil!

Military and motorcycles have been together ever since they invented motorcycles. In the old days, motorcycles were used mostly for dispatch riding, faster and more efficient than horses. But even today, all armed forces use motorcycles.

Here are 56 military motorcycles, some old, some new, some new but old, and the last one is a bit sad, if not outright funny.

Enjoy

The 15 Greatest Animal Photobombs of All Time


This reminds me of Harry Connick Jr.  He loves to photobomb pics!

Posted by

It’s a bold statement but these are the 15 greatest animal photobombs the Sifter could find around the web. Various list posts and Google image searches led us here. Further investigation on Tineye and Reddit allowed us to actually find the original source and authenticate over half of the images (there are a ton of Photoshopped animal photobombs online). We’d love your help identifying the original source of the other half :)

If you feel strongly about any glaring omissions let us know in the comments below! Now have a chuckle over these incredible animal photobombs!

Beautiful BC and the Dual Sport BC Spring Newbie Ride


March 25th 2012

The morning started off heading out to Chilliwack at 0700.  About 1 degree Celsius but look at what I see all the way out to the staging area for the Annual Dual Sport BC Newbie Ride.  SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It has been so wet and miserable here when I saw the sunrise it was meant to be a good day.  Cheryl did not come with me because she has not been sleeping well and I am glad she did not come.  This ride was not for sleepy riders.  There are a few short videos in this post…hope you watch them to get a flavor of the day and all pics are click-able!

Heading East through Mission, BC to get to Highway 1 for the fast way out to Chilliwack.  About an hour from where we live.
