—  77 and 78 —

On Day 73 the afternoon was sunny for the first time in 14 days!

On Day 76 I was able to solar charge all day at Meziadin Lake and got enough power to make it all the way to Stewart, BC on Day 77.

On Day 78 I was able to solar charge almost all day, and on Day 79 I was FINALLY able to enter Alaska AND visit the Fish Creek Wildlife Observation Site to watch the bears and wolves fish for spawning salmon.

I am still waiting for my new battery charger to arrive at the Post Office in Stewart, but if the sun keeps on shining at least I will be a little more mobile while I wait.

I have begun reaching out to various vendors of the products that I am currently using to see if any might be interested in sponsoring the upcoming Segments of the Journey.

If you know of any products that I should test, or if you know of any vendors that might like to demonstrate their products on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, please let me know. I would love to discuss the opportunities with them.

Bear Glacier, Stewart, BC

Hopefully the charger will arrive soon and next week I’ll be on my way towards Prince Rupert, BC.

From there I hope to take a ferry to Vancouver Island and visit with some scooter retailers and YouTube Vloggers in Victoria, BC and Washington state.

From there it’s back to Colorado to complete Segment 2 of the Journey and head out for Mexico before the snow gets too deep over the Continental Divide.

Winter’s coming and I’m aiming for Christmas in Mazatlan!…

Alaska, here I come!
