How's This for Goin' To Alaska?

These folks, the Pedouins, either bought or built, just about the most unique bicycle I've ever seen... piled their family on it a while back... and are people powering their kiesters up the road! and are now... following their own "Ribbon of Highway"... to Alaska!... by... Bicycle!

OK... I may be a Cowboy Biker... and likely to do just 'bout anything... but... one thing you'll never see me doin'... is pedalin' my As... Uh... Bu... uh... art! :o) Yes! Pedaling my ART! across Canada! :o)

Sometimes I like to think I'm a determined sort of guy... keep on runnining against the wind sort of character... but... I gotta say... I'm pretty impressed by such folks as these... They do stand apart!

... and from what lil' I've had time to read of their adventure... they're doin' it on an even thinner wallet than I'm workin' on... gives a fella a tiny bit more confidence...

Now... 'bout how I'll be making communication... on the road... once I get on the road... pushin' my own lil' scooter to Homer...

Canada is a bit of a problem... I use Verizon for my Phone and Internet Card... the problem being, Verizon, except by some sort of "roaming agreements" isn't really - in - Canada... and so... the COST is just way too high... so... my phone and air card will likely be OFF... rolling through Alberta and British Columbia... 'cause I'm cheap!

But... I'll need to camp... where there's plenty of "other" bait... to distract the Bears from me :o) and a lot of those places have WiFi... good setups or not... so... that's the plan... at least every couple days or so... I'll buy a night in a commercial campground... and send up my posts on their WiFi... and... utilize their showers...

...so the waitresses at the cafe's along the way don't have to hold their breath... while they pour my coffee!

But... just the same... I better just get back to work for now! :o)

Take Good Care
Brian

You'd save a lot of money on gas with that method of transportation. But spend twice as much on food.

Brian, are you making the trip to Alaska by yourself or is Heidi going with you?
