Wanderlust - to the Great White North
Just can't help myself - got this craving to see new territory.
My overall goal is to cycle from CtoC then CtoC (Pacific to Atlantic -done, then Gulf of Mexico to Arctic Ocean) - all solo, unsupported. I only have about 2,000 kms left - my plan was to finish last year, but a heart fibrilation problem stopped me only 600 kms into the Alaska highway.
The doctors have given me a green light so I'm off for "Toad River" on the Alaska hwy tomorrow - then it will be on to Whitehorse, Dawson City, then up the Dempster hwy to Inuvik. That will get me to within 100 kms of the Arctic Ocean and I'll have to fly to Tuktoyaktuk to dip the wheel. YAHOO!! Four oceans!
And if my old bod will let me, I'm planning to finish up in Alaska - Tok, Fairbanks, Denali, and Anchorage. Gotta think big or it will never happen!
If anyone's interested, I've just recently published my "Across Canada, Eh?" journals. You can access them at: www.crazyguyonabike.com/journal/pianoman
Well I'm off to the annual Father's day family picnic with its mounds of food....
