CHANGE AT TOP OF THE WORLD


This is a video not only depicting possible climate change in the Arctic but also opening a portal into the lives of the Inuit people, how they feel about their land and wildlife, as well as their culture.  This is truly a well done “documentary” covering so many issues but at the same time you get to see how beautiful the north really is…a place that many of us will never personally get to see.  I love this video for many reasons but the one that stands out most is just the people and scenery.  Enjoy and as always please feel free to comment.

The defining question of this century will be: how do we simultaneously preserve the environment and shareholder wealth?

Using the BLOG


I have been asked where are the older posts?

Depending on your web browser you can search the archives or find the calendar on the Home Page and click on the highlighted dates.  I posted almost everyday and the BLOG started in April.  So, just FYI for those who have emailed me and asked, I thought I would just put it out there that all previous posts links with all the pictures etc can be found on our Home page by looking at the Archive months or by scrolling down to the end of the page to the calendar and take it from there.

Hopefully this makes sense and helps those out that are having issues with navigating this BLOG.  Any questions or comments please feel to post them here to help others out as well.  Thanks! Advgrrls

More Expenses


As someone pointed out on the ADV Rider forum

44 Days – we also had free lodging in Anchorage for 4 nights so that brings us down to actually 40 days of riding.

Gas and Lodging

$2447 + $1664 = $4111 / 44 days =$93.43 per day / 2 people = $46.71 a day per person

And to add

Groceries, including food, snacks, beer etc…

About $900

Ferries, flight over McKinley and other side track adventures

About $1000

Total for 2 of us

$6000 approximately

Gas expenses for Both Tigers


$1663.37

We thought it was going to be much higher.

Lodging and Camping Expenses


Total for 44 days is:  $2447

This can be done for way less if we camped more. The weather did not cooperate in the way we like to camp. Rain does not fair well with us sleeping outside.  We had to remind ourselves this was our vacation too, an easy way to justify a motel.   Anyone doing this trip can probably save about $600 if lodging choices were more frugal. Gas costs coming up.

Some STATS and our Plea


Here are some stats, over 220,000 Facebook views of our page, over 180,000 hits to our ride report on the ADV forum and almost 37,000 unique hits to our BLOG. We are really short of our goal. $5 for half of these folks would be HUGE. Think about it and learn how to donate right here on our BLOG under the ACT page.

Thanks so much for everyone’s support and great comments!
