Every once in awhile I come across a video that just resonates with me…I mean everyone should watch this especially if you are an adventurer. This guy Ed from New Mexico rode 10,000 miles in 26 days and how he sees Canada and Alaska is spot on. I LOVE, absolutely LOVE his attitude, sense of humor….I mean everything about his heart and soul. I really hope everyone who takes a look at this post takes the time to sit back and watch….it is soooooo worth it trust me.
I think this is my most favorite ADV video I have seen so far….and I loved seeing where we went through his eyes….BRAVO!
414 miles of frost-heaves, broken chip seal and grated dirt surfaces, the Dalton Highway has its challenges. On a good day, you can ride it wide open. On a bad day, you can go home in a helicopter. Continue reading →
We stayed at the University before and after riding the Dalton Highway. They rent rooms for $46/night, per person and you get 2 twin beds, shared bathroom, common showers, WIFI, sheets, pillow, soap, towels, free laundry and even a TV room with pool table. On campus cafeteria and for $10.30 each you get buffet style food.
That reminds me, the cafeteria food although was not that bad, both Cheryl and I seemed to not really like it about an hour after we ate the “buffet” if you know what I mean.
Yeah this hotel is expensive at $110 per person but there are not many choices in Deadhorse. PLUS, you get to eat 24 hrs a day in their really good cafeteria. So, for the money you get WIFI, a very clean room and facility, clean showers & bathrooms, polite locals, wear your booties to help housekeeping and all is good.
Quiet on the Blog these days but I will keep adding little videos and bits of info as they pass by my computer not only to add to this BLOG but to continue with our own documentation of this trip. We have been looking back on the trip and taking our time to read what you all read while we were on the road. Seems like a blur but the scenery and experience we will have forever. Looking forward to our next adventure.
This is also where we met Ray Jardine our friend from Deadhorse.
Just two songs I was listening to while riding this great road.
