North to Alaska
About 10 months ago I made a committment to a solo journey to Alaska. Now the countdown clock says 38 days - and Harley and I are ready. I want to share the trip with as many as possible although I wouldn't claim that I'll be able to journalistically capture it with the same swagger as Shrug did on his trip. None-the-less I have set up a public Face Book page (Harley Davidson & I to Alaska) to post to prior to and during the trip. I'll be equipped with a Delorme InReach satellite communicator that will allow me to send and receive messages through my iPhone, as well as post to the Face Book page. A new InReach model is just being released with expected shipments in late May. There will be much to be learned in a short period of time to get it set up and functioning before my June 15 departure. Delorme also has a web page that will display a map to track my trip. Hopefully I'll be able to reach the Arctic Circle before travelling south to meet up with my wife in Anchorage who has chosen the airlines as her preferred travel method. We'll spend a few days with various activities before we board the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system for the trip south deboarding at Prince Rupert for her to catch flights home while Harley and I continue our land journey. Should be around 9000 miles and 15 days max as work won't allow any more. Bike has been thoroughly prepped and pimped so she'll at least look good for launch. Visit the FB page and follow along. Road Glide was made to eat the road on journey's like this; time to prove it once again.
