I've got 2 of those Kermit chairs, John. If you can't scrape up the $$ by next summer, you can borrow one of mine. Leg extensions & cup holder included. I highly recommend them. Very comfortable, & sturdy. Had them for about 10 years & use them for everything. & if you work at it, the legs will fit in the bag with the chair, so you only have one piece to pack on.

At 4:40 AM


I woke up at 3:00 and I was wide awake, so I致e just spent the past hour and a half playing on Google Maps plotting my route to Tuktoyaktuk. I知 barely computer literate and I don稚 know how to do a screen grab of the map with my route on it; but I can describe it.

Starting from my house in Cheviot, Ohio, I知 going to head for Cedaredge, Colorado to visit a friend. From there, I知 heading for Missoula, Montana and Rt. 93 north. That will bring me into Canada. I値l ride that through Banff and Jasper National Parks, then I値l pick up rt. 40. I take that to Dawson Creek, BC, then get on Rt. 97 and take that to Watson Lake in Yukon and then take Rt. 4 to rt. 2 to the Dempster Highway (Rt.5) to Inuvik then up to Tuktoyaktuk and the Beaufort Sea (Arctic Ocean).

From there, I head back down the Dempster and ride into Dawson City, then I値l take the top of the World Highway over into Chicken Alaska. I won稚 be in Alaska for a long while; I値l take Rt.5 to Rt. 2 to Alcan Border then get on Rt.1.

I値l be on Rt. 1 for a while, but then I値l get on Rt. 37 just before Upper Liard and take that south until I hit Rt. 16. That will bring me to Prince George and Rt. 97 which will bring me back into the US in Washington.

Once back into the US, I値l make my way down to Cornville, Arizona, where I値l visit with another friend, then head for home.

I値l be doing a little backtracking, but not very much. it痴 basically one big loop.

Google says it痴 10,700 miles, but it will be more; just as they say it値l take 184 hours. That only applies if you travel at the speed limit and never get a red light. I figure it値l take me about a month. It痴 going to be one hell of a ride - the Ride of a Lifetime.

Now, I think I値l try to get a little more sleep.

Picked up "Ghost Rider" by Neil Peart to read while I sit around. Just read about the northern parts of your route yesterday. Screwloose Dan did some form of it quite a few years ago on a sportster. Sounds like quite a ride. Looking forward to more planning and then the stories!
