Does this put me in the right location? Still can't find any reference to the rental cabin.
The wolfcub is coming home for Thanksgiving. Maybe she could make a detour at old fort to get it. We can send it to spend the winter with the eastern tag at the gravediggers garage.

Everything is relative.
But it's a dry cold! I used to live there.

New tag location.





The original structure was built in 1776 in an effort to protect settlers from Cherokee attacks, which were probably instigated by the British. The town is named for the structure. The structure is named for a prominent colonial family. I can think of a river and a city that bear the same name.


It is easy to see this passing on the interstate. To get to the actual location, you'll need to find a road which shares its name with the only American to win a 500cc World Championship in motocross.

You lived at Deadhorse / Prudhoe Bay?

That "dry" crap is crap
"Dry" heat in AZ is still f-ing hot
"Dry" cold in AK is still f-ing cold

No, Anchorage is the tropics compared to the slope. Nome was as far north as I got working for Standard Oil doing spill containment.

You Alaskans are a really different kind of folk....21 minutes of sun? Dayum!

Hey Gaston, How you digging that Verysy?? Can you put dual sport tires on it? Ive seen a few with hard bags the same body color and thought they looked pretty sweet.

Well, if I had it to do over, I would get another one. One of these days, I will try an Anakee on the back. I have only had street tires on it.

I don't have the slightest clue where it is at. However, I can't chase this thing right now anyway.

I found it soon after he put it up but I don't have time to get it either. Just think about each clue and follow them through.

Found it right off, but probably because I remember "bad lucky". You NEED to be old to remember and understand that one!
