1:00 PM to 4:30 PM — Average Speed: 15.5 mph
Meziadin Junction to Stewart, BC.
Odometer: 3,219 – 3,261 miles
Climb: 1,432 ft. — Descend: 2,272 ft.
60-70° F : Sunny. 5-20 mph headwinds. Slowed to 15 mph last 12 miles to conserve battery because I only have solar power until the new charger arrives in Stewart.
Note: All charging and range data after the World Record Day will be published in Excel format at a later date.
— 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.
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!…
