Riding a Motorcycle in Alaska

Hey Fans!  Sorry it took me so long to write about this trip.  There is so much to say!  First, let me tell you that Schoo and his friends traveled for two weeks without us wives.  Here is their route:

They started in West Virginia and rode for two days to Pierre, South Dakota, where they stayed overnight with family.  Screen Shot 2017-02-20 at 11.14.04 AM.png

Actually, they didn’t “ride,” but pushed through.  Twenty hours of riding in two days makes around ten hours a day, and that’s tough!  But it was the start of the trip and they were fresh.  After a day and a half being pampered by Mama Glo’s home cooking, they headed due north for the Canadian border.

Following them was pretty easy, because they had a tracking device, called a SPOT.  They could easily send a link to anyone.  Schoo sent one to his mom and she and I held our breath as they crossed the border.  They had already done their homework to see if they were allowed to take a bear gun across, but–you never know.   Crisis averted; bear gun legal.  They had to have the gun apart and ammo stored separately, but they made it.


I may have stopped right there, but these men were on a mission and pressed on to overnight in Estevan, SK.

Snowshoe Resort

Small town near the end of our ride.  It was so hot in the middle of the day.  I would say it felt the worst around 3 or 4 p.m.
