Bears

Everyone says that the bears up here are not friendly and they are NOT! I have been trying to pet them but they keep running away from me

Baja looks awesome! Getting some great ideas.

We are heading that way in September. We are currently in New York after having driven down from Alaska, across Canada and the US.

If you are up in Alaska you should definitely check out Denali. We didn't recon much of Fairbanks but headed up to Chena Hot springs maybe 50 miles North. The camping wasn't great, but was cheap at about 15 dollars a night.

Some photos on the blog...

Fairbanks Alaska

Chena Hot Springs - one of the best hot springs ever. Just place to warm up after a cold rainy ride

It rained the 150 miles all the way to Atiken Pass. And the mud made it a scary ride

Prudhoe Bay

Here is where I set up camp on the Bay. There were bear tracks right next to my tent and in the morning, I saw a Grissley about a half mile from this spot and heading my way



Here's dinner that night.......roast beef and beans with a 1995 Taylor Fladgate LBV Port
