Those following along @ home may ask me why at 35, my bucket list will be 50% complete in one year? I’m going to cheat a little bit and take 2 of these highlighted items off the list because I won’t be riding them.
Heather and I are planning a mid-Summer 5-6 day trip in the truck where we head north to Labrador City
for a car-camping weekend with the dog. She’s not ready to do 500 miles of unpaved roads and heavy logging trucks so I told her we can go up for a long weekend, pack in some food and just enjoy the open-ness together and maybe see Northern Lights if we’re lucky. If you haven’t read my 2018 Ride Report of the Trans-Labrador,
it was a fantastic trip.
The second one is Seattle to Fairbanks. I’m not doing it this year but in August, my friend Chris invited me to join him to Anchorage via Seattle to see to it his mother’s ashes make it to her final resting place as dictated by her will. He and I have done a few trips together but he doesn’t ride. It’ll be my first time in Alaska and I hear flying over the mountain ranges is still a sight to see. He’s never been to Seattle so we’ll do a couple of days there and then 5 in Alaska together. I’m almost certain that after I see how gorgeous Alaska is from the windshield of a car, I’ll short-list making the ride happen by shipping a bike over for a future ride.
