Note: This post was original posted on August 25, 2013 after arriving back from this trip. Follow along! As you may or may not know, Gregg G. and I just finished our trip to Alaska. We rode our motorcycles approximately 7081 miles in just 3 weeks! We took tons of pictures and videos of which some came out quite well. (I can't wait to share) Most importantly of all, we met some great people and forged some great memories that will stick with us for a lifetime!
For those of you who don't know, Gregg and I met freshman year in college. We happened to be in the same orientation group the first week. What we didn't know up until that point was that we lived 15 minutes away from each other growing up and had mutual friends (weird right?). Nevertheless, planning and executing a trip to Alaska seemed like something we wanted to do about 8 months ago. It took some moderately serious planning and the ability to plunk down $815 (at least to get us fully committed -- I spent over $2400 when it was all said and done) for the ferry ride from Haines.
The mission here on out is to provide you with planning tips, a day-by-day account of the places we saw as we traveled the Last Frontier and showcase some of the equipment that we were both really glad we didn't leave home without.
Here is a list of upcoming posts i'll be writing. Stay tuned for more!
