OK, Go!

Firstly, apologies for the lack of blog or tracker updates – for the last 6 days there’s been no public phone or internet access! A true wilderness in the 21st century.

The final flight ended with yet more spectacular views – huge meandering river in an almost alien landscape

Myself, the bike and the hear all arrived undamaged – which is more than can be said for the bike box that was by now more tape than cardboard!

Deadhorse airport is about the same size as Alderney airport, and if it looks a bit basic, it is actually the smartest building in a large grey gravely/dusty industrial estate

That’s where I got petrol for my stove, then eventually I found the shed that sells “Counter Assault Bear Deterrent” aka Bear Spray, and the official northern end of the Pan American Highway

After over a year of preparation, I was finally at the start of the ride! Time to get going . . .

    Great to hear you’ve started. I was beginning to think you had become a permanent resident of West 36th Avenue, Anchorage (so your GPS tracker says). Pics are brilliant, properly looks like the end of the world. Mike, Aid and I did the ‘Most Remote’ Munros the other weekend (Fisherfield, up in the NW) and I was feeling quite pleased with myself for doing so, that is until I saw your photos!
