What an amazing journey we have had following along with you, Sue and Peanut on your Alaska Adventure! I just wonder if the landscapes you viewed became so overwhelming, just as a rich Chocolate Sundae can be? The scenery is just intoxicating and your photography is beautifully framing all of this. Enjoyed viewing the wildlife you were able to capture. But one thing one exceptionally impressive, the lack of motor vehicles on the highways, you and Sue traversed. Well, save for one way off in the distance in your shot of Keystone Canyon.

Waiting patiently for more!

Going to Alaska is not just a rv vacation. It's an adventure. You never know what you are going to see or what might happen (especially on a motorcycle).

I fixed the pics by skipping Photobucket. I have 1,000's of pictures in photobucket and they won't let you share them any more without paying a huge fee. Luckily I still have all the pictures on some thumb drives.


I (2-10-05) bought a 2002 F350 CC SWD PSD and a new 2003 Citation 10'8. I have been a tent camper all my life. I wanted more comfort while camping and CraterLake Ski Patrol.
It's time for more space. I purchased a 2016 Grand Design 380TH as of 10-29-2015.

whazoo - Thanks Dave, I wish I was the wordsmith like you and bka, I love that "Alaskatastic" because that is what it was!

bka0721 - Thanks Bryan, if I could write as eloquently as you I would probably have double the views of our trip report. You're right, the views were intoxicating and overwhelming at times and the biggest reason I am writing these trip reports is to go back and refresh my memory of our trip! It was a harsh reminder getting back to Phoenix of the traffic differences between Alaska and Phoenix!

ORbiker - You're right, it is an adventure and probably even more so on a motorcycle, but I just cannot imagine with all the rain...., no thanks! Glad you got your pictures fixed, always fun to look at!

Mello Mike - Thanks Mike for your comments! Don't wait too long, Alaska is like Lay's potato chips, you can't go just once!

Thanks for all your work posting your trip. The wife and I enjoyed every picture. Alaska is an adventure all its own like no other. Our first trip up there was almost 30 years ago when we were first married. We tent camped and cooked most meals on an open fire or old coleman gas stove for 6 weeks. As I remember a lot of the roads were gravel or mud and dust. We used the 4 wheel drive in our old ford truck several times. Saw a grizzly bear chase some people, luckily they made it to their truck just in time. Panned gold and found some. Seen many of the same people traveling the alcan at different times and places and got to know them. We helped each other change tires and make minor repairs along the way. Met several of the local native people and learned all about living in the far north. For us Alaska was the greatest adventure of our lifetime.
