Inmates in Barrow?

I'm going up to Barrow at the end of the month, as I heard they got a mexican eatery up there. And I've never had a burrito north of the Arctic circle before. Any inmates up there want to join me for lunch?

Go to Osakas rather than Pepe's unless you really want a burrito. If you do go to Pepe's, be sure to ask Fran for your certificate.

I regularly visit but don't live there.

Try "Arctic Pizza" Best $50 pizza in Alaska. No certificate but the waitresses are HOT, or at least used to be...

I'm living up in Barrow right now. Unfortunately, for the time being, I'm only a wanna be inmate...no scooter for me as I sold my last one before the big move.

Pepe's is acceptable Mexican food, but I much prefer East Coast Pizza.

If I'm not working when you come up, I'd be happy to join you for lunch.

Great cheesesteaks at East Coast Pizza! I think Arctic Pizza changed ownership recently and the previous owner is now running East Coast Pizza.

Hahahahha, hottest is a relative term in Nome.

But uh, yeah, I agree with you. I knew a couple girls that worked there.

Have him contact Pam Flowers. She did a solo dog sled trip out of Barrow and can prolly give him all kinds of info.

Had a PM exchange with Sjaak. He wants to ride the ice from Barrow to Inuvik.

Sjack told me he will be riding on the Arctic Ocean up and around Prudhoe Bay area to avoid issues with US government territory. He is well into the planning of the trip now. He will make his way down to Key West. If anyone can do this, it's Sjack. After talking with him, I now believe he can do it. I'm not sure he has publically stated the date he intends to set off, so I will not say. But once he does, you will be able to track him with live updates, possible even up to what speed he is traveling. Should be quite cool, or cold in his case.

I don't want to be overly negative, but I think this is an idea that is likely to go bad. I had some lengthy conversations with Sjaak about his ideas for over ice travel; at one point he was considering a ride to the Pole. Issues I see just off hand are: fissures and breaks in the ice, fuel consumption and problems starting an R1 engine in sub-zero temperatures. This would be a tough venture for a dog team and a dog team is far more versatile than a Yamaha R1. I wish him luck and perhaps he has all these issues worked out; if he pulls it off I will be first to congratulate him.

I'm afraid I have to agree even tho I know Sjaak and what he's done. From what all I've seen of the ice, I think of it as pretty unnavigable.

I think it'd take some pretty amazing good fortune for any type of wheeled vehicle to travel over that ice.

Best of luck, Mark H.
