Getting the jump on Spring

Eklutna: This afternoon 25* Clear and Sunny







I guess it's a little to early for a ice cream





For the most part the road is fairly clear BUT




There is a lot of ice, black ice, and glaciation happening on the road

Plus there is just tons of sand in that eight mile stretch that would make it very unsettling if you didn't watch your speed

But it was a great day

Two-wheel riding season isn't far off, but we sure hope to get some more fantastic backcountry ski (touring) trips in!

Didn't recognize the man personally, but I did see someone riding down Airport Way in Fairbanks earlier today on a BMW GS.

Did get to watch a bunch of these guys today (this pic is from the limited last weekend)



2nd ave start for the Unlimited






A couple weekends ago for the Iron Dog finish






Locals were out enjoying themselves too lol

Nenana River ice is thick and polished! Lots of fun boondocking and drifting out there.


Peace,
Piston

Are those pics from last year or is your camera set wrong? I'm in Palmer if you want to grab a coffee or something this weekend.

You'll have to ask Bob(Alaskahack) about that one. I finished my testing for APD today, anyone have any other leads for jobs in AK? I feel good about APD but I'd like to take advantage of my time while I'm here and interview for as many jobs as possible.

This happened this afternoon i've tried to reset it a couple of times and just gave up.

I'm up for coffee give me a day and time.

He is going back to Whitehorse next week, he's toured Alaska 2 summers ago, and felt a need to do it in the winter.

I think he's going down to lower 48 for a while.
