Tyre comes first

CANADA | Tuesday, 27 May 2008 | Views [295] | Comments [6]

I leave Fort Nelson headed for Fort St John which is a larger town built for the gas and oil industry. Am nervous about this tyre problem and have lost any idea of what day it is, so its Sunday and no shops will be open. The plan is to camp out and find ... Read more >


Watson Lake hmm!

CANADA | Tuesday, 27 May 2008 | Views [300]

The next day was clear again if not a little cold but at least it wasnt raining. I spent the morning looking around Whitehorse very pretty by the waterfront but not much to keep me there too long. I headed south towards Watson Lake. On my morning coffee ... Read more >


Canadas Yukon

CANADA | Monday, 26 May 2008 | Views [238]

I reached the Canadian customs and after a few cursory questions was welcomed into Canada. If Canada is anything like Alaska i could not help but enjoy it. I rode on through rugged and beautiful terrain. There was still snow everywhere and rivers and ... Read more >

CANADA | Monday, 26 May 2008 | Views [256]

I have had 2 days to wander around Anchorage, it really does have that outpost feeling to it although i am told it has half a million people. The city is definently not made for public transport travel, i tried yesterday and spent ages waiting for buses.... Read more >


Anchorage the cold

USA | Friday, 16 May 2008 | Views [560] | Comments [4]

Arrived in Anchorage worn out 28 hours of flights and airports. Snow still tops all the mountains surrounding Anchorage, very spectacular. A bit of a hitch upon arrival, i was told that the shipper wanted another $430.00 or Herbert would not be released.... Read more >
