All the flights worked out ok, so I’m now in Alaska! Staying in Fairbanks for the night with a friend of a friend. Tomorrow morning, I take the Dalton Highway Express up to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay (a 16hr drive) and start biking south on Weds. Got bear spray and food, so along with the bike I hopefully have everything I need. The journey back to Fairbanks is about 500 miles of wilderness, so blog updates will have to wait until I’m back in the city- could be anywhere from 1-2 weeks. Time to try and get some sleep despite the everlasting sun (11pm and it’s as bright as any proper summer day!).
Alaska’s nomenclature is top-notch [sincere].
This is like the fifth time I’ve read Prudhoe as Prude ho.
Bear Spray is a thing?! Excellent. Following this blog is already totally worth it.
Stay safe in the wilderness!!
(Obviously, I’m talking to the bears. They don’t stand a chance against you.)
If I don’t hear back from you in another week I’m coming after you
What is the Dalton Highway Express? Bus?
Sam! Hi! The Express was a shuttle van, no Amtrak out there. Maybe you could start a new line?

Alaskan Railroad route to Denali State Park is a breathtaking ride.
