Totally miss living up there and can't wait to get back. The long Winters didn't bother me, but the fact we only had one day above 70F (Anchorage) and bunches of rain, kind of left me longing for warmer climes. I know I jumped to soon, and the weather like everything else will change. There are also lots of places to live up there that have nice sunny Summers. Anchorage used to have them, but el nino la ninia or something like that completely hijacked the last two Summers I lived there. Now I am living back in humid hell, and am hating it. I seriously forgot how hot it gets down here. I will take the Winters even though the riding season for bikes is so small.
Sorry to comment so much. Thanks for posting and Alaska is beautiful.
There's a hell of a lot of land between Alaska and Florida. Ever been to New England or Pa? lot like Irealand.

Great country

Love the pics. I wanted to see a few more with the outfit included though!

You are lucky to have such striking country (and roads) within reach. I'm suitably impressed.

Cheers, Mick.
And so ends my 'Adventure' era (SOLD)
