Dood! You know I don't kiss and tell!
Yeah, I'd like to come off as a hero and all, but there was no "tagging". She was a cutie though An extra day in Fairbanks could have been nice.

Glad you all made it back in one piece.

Brauhausbier - First batches of brewed in UT all grain beer are kegged. Your expert advice and ingredient help are much appreciated. My best ever.

Now make with the entertainment.
Mike,

Glad to hear your brewing is going strong! I'm stoked all those PNW brewing ingredients I gave you are making you some fine brews out there in the State of Utah.

I just got back last night at 8pm from my personal best of riding from McCarthy Alaska to Portland in 4 days via the Alcan. I pretty much slept all today after that riding marathon (and took a much needed shower).

I took about 1600 photos and just got a raw look at them this afternoon. I'll see if I can get some up tonight.

I can't believe we left for Alaska on July 4th. Now some 22 days ago.

Let's back up a bit....

Before we hit the road for this epic trip, I hosted a bbq get together on July 3rd. Drrags, Mischief, and Forrest all joined in for some bbq goodness and my oven fries, and plenty of cold brew...Draggs was still trying to convince Mischief to ride that KLR250 of hers up to Alaska with us.... Could I blame him?



Mischief...


My last good USA grown food before heading into the deepest and darkest corners of Canada (and the blandest, most epensive, and thanks President Bush for making our Dollar worth about nothing....!!!)

We were all up early on July 4th and I think we were on the paved express I-5 by 6 something am. Luckily it was the 4th of July, and the Seattle Commute was not its nasty norm.



We breezed up through the Sumas, WA border Crossing with ease and headed for the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler out of Vancouver.

I'm a chemist and microbiologist for Widmer Brothers Brewing in Portland, Oregon...and I have my eye on locally brewed cold beer through this trip. Many new brewpubs have opened up north since my last trip in 2001. And the first target is the Whistler Brewhouse in Whistler Village...






The house lager is clean and cold, but ouch...the cost? $8 US and with tip about $10 US here for a beer. My first indication of where our dollar has headed....

And while I was the only one enjoying a cold one after our hot ride up to Whistler (it was 80-90 degrees coming up from Vancouver), Drrags was taking a nap by the parking lot and constant train of down hill mountain bikers riding back to the ski lift.

This looks like it is going to be a good Ride Report.
Good folks, an interest in beer, and a motorcycle trip to Alaska.

I'm in as a "power spectator".

Please, no politics. I'd hate for this to end up in Jo Mamma before it gets started. For the economic reasons, check out:

Help on video!

Ok, so I've made the first time-lapse mpeg, and I've successfully uploaded it to smugmug, but I can't figure out how to link it to this thread like you do with a jpeg. I can link the whole smugmug page, but not just the movie itself. Does anyone have any ideas?
TIA!

This is like a motorcycle flip book. Very disconcerting to see it silent - I had to put on Howlin' Wolf for a soundtrack.



Keep it coming!

But where is the photo of the waitress dammit?
