Ready for another adventure?

I am an adventure motorcycle rider, photographer, outdoorsman and adventure traveler.  When I am not having an adventure, I enjoy sharing my adventures with others.

My next adventure is from Atlanta to Canada riding the Mid Atlantic and North East Backcountry Discovery Routes.


Top of the World – Dawson City

With a full tank of gas (regular – not premium), I continued on. This gas station boasts the “only flush toilet in Chicken” – aah what a luxury. The second half of Top of the World was equally fantastic. The pavement ends at Chicken (although there are some stretches between Chicken and Dawson City that are beautiful paved roads – and some just paved). A little wait at the ferry as it was paused as the paddlewheeler passed. Then I … Read More

Top of the World – Chicken, AK

Taking a second go at “Top of the World Highway”, I found the road to live up to my expectations – except it was is much better condition than I expected. I had to ride first to Glenellen for gas (I had planned on filling up at the Gakona junction, but the former gas station had “closed” and “for sale” signs Previously, I was scuttled by relentless rain. I am so glad I waited – the views here are spectacular. … Read More

Denali Highway

The Denali Highway is one of my favorite rides. I stayed in Paxon Lake campground – which was ok. There is a water pump and decent outhouses. The walk in tent sites are right down in the water – some a bit swampy. I pulled out my mosquito head net for the first time. So far, I have been fine with a little repellent and a campfire.

K’esugi Ken Campground

I headed back to mile 135 on the Parks Highway and stayed at K’esugi Ken campground. This is a new campground and a nice spot to stay. Most of the sites are secluded – the trees block your view of Denali from your site (except tent site 4), but there are some short trails to enjoy the view. The night was a bit overcast with some rain. Waking up early, I took a hike to the top of the mountain … Read More

Wasilla – Hatcher Pass

I spent the night with my cousin in Wasilla. The deep fried halibut with homemade tarter sauce was even better than I had in Seward. We came up with a game plan for the rest of the trip. I started off from Wasilla taking the Hatcher Pass – a dirt road from the top was a great ride.

The Silver Salmon Derby

This week is Seward’s Silver Salmon Derby. I tried my hand at fishing and caught a nice King Salmon. As I hadn’t purchased a King Salmon stamp on my fishing permit, the King is back in the bay.

Riding toward sunshine on the Kenai Pennisula

The rain continued to pour down – leaving no doubt the the mountain at mile 135 was not to be seen. Looking at weather reports, the best place to minimize the rain was Seward or Homer. I had a lot of riding through the rain. I passed quickly by Anchorage and found myself in awe of Chugach State Park and the Kenai Penninsula.  

A little reading on a rainy day

The word Talkeetna means convergence – named after the convergence of the Talkeetna, Chulitna, and the Susitna rivers.  My convergence story begins with an acquaintance I met at Cheena Hotsprings.  She was an interesting woman who had spent many years of her life in a homesteaded cabin in the wilderness.  In her experience, she felt the best views of the Denali peaks were from outside the park specifically mentioning mile 135.  Providing directions by mile # is a common practice … Read More

Eating wild blueberries at Wonder Lake

A nice lady that I met while at Cheena Hot Springs told me to skip going into Denali park. The best views of the mountain are from the South side at around mile 135. I had already reserved my spot for the 11 hour Denali transit bus ride to Wonder Lake. You can drive your own vehicle the first part of the road, but to really see the park, you have to take a bus. I was interested to find … Read More
