This is the first half of a journey I have longed for. Other riders I met along the way, and at Prudhoe universally have the same thoughts on the ride: it is an accomplishment, but now I'm out of here.
I made the run from Coldfoot, 240 miles, in just over 4 hours. People from other riders, to the clerk that took my fee for the tour said that was very good time. I guess I just fixed my eyes on the goal and got on with it. And I did take some pictures, of stunning landscapes along the way, but no animals. Yet.
