Dalton Highway: Day 4 Arctic Circle
Waking up in a proper campground with actual outhouse, it was a dream.  We got in super late (1 am) because of the road closure and construction.  It was a short night.  We ate in a REAL RESTAURANT in Cold Foot.  I loved all the history of how the Gold Rush...

Dalton Highway Day Three
Throughout the night, we were startled by the sounds of a massive truck using their jack breaks.  We had no idea how loud they actually could be.  Thankfully, we were able to fall right back to sleep.  I guess that is the disadvantage of camping near the ro...

Dalton Highway Day 2
We awoke to that irritating high pitched hum-mosquitos clung to the tent.  At one point during the night, we assumed it was raining but it was only the constant thumping of the mosquito landing on the tent.  Who knew these beasts that weigh so little can re...

Dalton Highway Day 1:
It takes time to pack for a journey like this.  We realized that since James was going to be carrying a weapon, we needed a locked hard-shell case for it.  Scrambling, we were able to purchase one at Walmart late that evening. I had spent the past six days ...

Denali Highway Day two: 52.51mi Distance 4:32:30 Moving Time 3,097ft
What an amazing day to awake.  We had great showers at the lodge. The day didn't disappoint.  It was hilly, but we were making some good time.  Saw a couple of people cycling the other direction from Anchorage, but overall a quiet day.  We saw the only wild...

Denali Highway Day 1:
We spent the night at Paxton Lake and enjoyed a buggy night sleep.  My husband wanted to bike from the camp, but I was hesitant not knowing what to expect on this never-before traveled road.  So, I ended up riding with my son to the intersection of the Dena...

Anchorage to Palmer Solo
One of my most used words on Facebook is "Anyone?" That is not surprising because I love to include as many people into the great outdoors.  I know it is safer from the perspective on bears and also following the words of wisdom from God's Word,  " Two are ...

Homer Bound: Day Four! Soldotna to Homer Spit
Even though we had a sound night sleep and the sun was out, we both were feeling Blah.  I think my nerves kicked in because I knew we had 80+ miles to go to reach the destination of the Homer Spit into  Kachemak Bay.  My longest day before that was 53 miles...

Day Three Homer bound: Cooper Landing to Soldotna
What a beautiful day to start a ride.  The sun greeted us.  We enjoyed some time in the Bible together then after a little breakfast, we were on the road.  Cooper Landing is notorious for its twisty road with no shoulder along the Russian River.  Thankfully...
