Quotes of the day

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
- Helen Keller

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
but I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep.
- Robert Frost

Tok, Alaska

First of all, a big thanks to those who left kind words of encouragement on the blog. I really appreciate it. Now it seems like this is a team effort instead of solo!

I'm in my tent at the Tundra campground in Tok, Alaska. I just had a great burger and fries at fast Eddie's restaurant. Another beautiful day. I saw one more moose, and one bear today.
This bear wasn't black, and it had a large hump on its front shoulder.

While I was on the Alaska Highway, I came upon a woman from Alberta who was stranded with a disabled motorcycle. Alone.
I stopped to help, and I ended up towing her to the Canadian customs office.

Tomorrow I plan to start up the Dalton Highway. Once I leave Fairbanks, I won't have any cell coverage or Wi-Fi until I either return to Fairbanks or make it to Deadhorse.
Just watch the little orange dots on the map.


  1. Thoughts are with you Rick on your Dalton Highway travels.....looking forward to your next post and pictures!

  2. good stuff, no wifi or cell, REAL vacation :-)
