Off to the arctic circle and hopefully deadhorse. Nobody at the shops here have heard of anyone going up yet. This whole trip I've heard people tell me I'm early, but everywhere I've gone I've seen guys on bikes already riding around. I hope this one of those times, like on rainier when I heard about bad conditions on the route but found 20 people ahead of me.
Part of my problem is I like to see things for myself and make my own mistakes, because sometimes it's not like they said and everything works out great. And if it is...
well I can always hit reverse.
