Dawson Creek > Prince George, 422km > Jasper 389km

There are not too many petrol stations along this road. ¬†All through where we have been travelling the gas stations are just big gravel areas sometimes with a cafe attached. This has the prize of the most complicated gas pump, Charlie had to even do a safety checklist before being issued a security number to […]

Watson Lake > Fort Nelson, 528km > Dawson Creek, 465km

  Had bumbleberry pie for lunch today – had to try it just because of the name! – was delicious, my pie-eating friend would have enjoyed it ūüôā   There are a lot of petrol stations etc closed down along the highway, this one is still actually operating, even the old diesel pump. ¬†Very honest […]

Whitehorse > Watson Lake – 453km

We saw a porcupine today for the first time ever, not quick enough for a pic though. I just love this road from Whitehorse to Dawson Lake, it just keeps beckoning us on. ¬†We see beautiful views all day long, sometimes with lakes, sometimes with rivers. ¬†Very little traffic on the road too. ¬†A really […]

Fairbanks >Top of the World Highway > Dawson City > Whitehorse

Charlie’s front fork oil seals started leaking after doing the Prudhoe Road, so needed to get them replaced by Yamaha Fairbanks – they said people come in for this job all the time because of the dust and grit that gets trapped. ¬†Will look for some gaiters to put on.   Fairbanks to Tok, 338km […]

Prudhoe Bay then return to Fairbanks – 803 km

Day 3 Dipping our toes in the Arctic Ocean. ¬†No pack ice or polar bears today. ¬†Melanie, this IS the surf in the Arctic ūüôā This is as far north as we can go – from tomorrow we begin our journey south. The largest oil rig in the world. All these “sheds” are rigs reaching […]

Fairbanks > Wiseman > Deadhorse, Prudhoe Bay – 803km

Days 1 and 2 After a rest day in Fairbanks, it was off to Prudhoe Bay and the Arctic Ocean via the Dalton Highway also known as the Haul Rd on TV. Typical of the first part of the Highway. Shorter trees around here. ¬†We were told that many of the forest fires are started […]

Tok to Fairbanks – 343km

There are many places to see around the areas we have been riding through over the last couple of days – we were here about 6 years ago and had a good look around then, ie Skagway and learned about the Alaskan goldrush; ¬†Haines where we watched wild grizzlies teach their cubs to catch salmon […]

Whitehorse, Yukon to Tok, Alaska – 640km

I couldn’t find a “Welcome to Alaska” sign, so an Alaskan number plate will have to do. Today we left the mountains of Yukon, and crossed the US border into the flatter land of Alaska. Our B&B host, Jack, tried to sort some accommodation for us in Beaver Creek which was about the right distance […]

Watson Lake to Whitehorse – 453km

Another great day’s riding, just loving it !! ¬† The land is so vast, you come up over the crest of a hill and for as far as you can see its more mountains, rock outcrops, lakes, trees – and it just keeps going like that all day, day after day. See the little speck […]

Iskut to Watson Lake – 367km

Woke up to fog over Dease Lake and the temp was 10. ¬†Whether cold or rain it doesn’t really matter to us, as we have the right gear to keep warm and dry – so its just weather. Glenn arranged for us to call in for a cup of tea with Jim and Sharon who […]
