Mobius VI, August, 2010: [Anchorage, AK - Inuvik, NWT - Anchorage, AK]
-Flash forward for a real-time update by GaryAK of our fist riding day, then flash back to our NYC departure.
-Pre-ride bike prep, then starting out riding over Hatcher Pass on our way to spend the night at Cantwell, AK.
-The Denali Highway across to Paxon, and North to Delta (flat tire) Junction, then camping near Tok, AK.
-The Taylor Highway to Chicken where we hung out and drank the afternoon away, eventually backtracking all the way to Beaver Creek, YT on account of Border connector washouts.
-Continuing our 700 mile detour, doing lunch at Haines Jct, and north again to Carmacks where we spent a lovely night camping on the banks of the Yukon River.
-Finally starting the Dempster Highway! Riding up to camp at Engineer Creek. Pushing into NWT over the Richardson Range and through the rain to Inuvik.
-Backtracking down the Dempster, past a grizzly bear and the Arctic Circle rest area where we took our Christmas card photo, and met Joanna & Laurent from NYC.
-A great evening hanging out at Eagle Plains with Tim & John and Chi. Continuing south, riding with Tim & John, frolicking on the tundra, through Dawson City and on to camp at 40-mile Creek.
-Leaving the 40-mile in the sun, and suffering the Top of the World highway in a lightning storm, only to arrive late to the DOT convoy.
-Lunch at Chicken with Tim and John & Chi, then the busted chain episode, holing up at the Hart D Ranch. Out to the end of Nabesna Rd. to pick up Lorraine's mail, and back to deliver it.
-Gas at Posty's on the Glenn, then out to the Chitina Motel for the night. In the AM, riding McCarthy rd. out to explore Kennicott mines on foot.
-Through the town of McCarthy heading back to the Richardson Highway, and the beautiful ride down to Valdez. A beautiful ferry ride, then through the Whittier tunnel and
-a short ride back to Anchorage, where we stayed with GaryAK and Deb, stowed the bikes at Motoquest, and headed home!

"I came into this game for the action, the excitement; go anywhere, travel light... get in, get out... wherever there's trouble, a man alone... Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form." --Robert De Niro as Archibald 'Harry' Tuttle in Brazil, 1985.
