A thousand miles of smoke. That's how big things are here. I've been running in smoke from several forest fires for two days now, and I'm not out yet. Over 1200 miles of smoke, sometimes so thick you can see your headlight beams in it…at high noon! It is actually snowing ash here in Fairbanks.
Near noon on the road. Visibility was at times measured in feet...and I could see my headlight beams.
A thousand miles of smoke! Picture driving from Shreveport, LA to Denver, CO, and enough fires to cover that entire area with thick smoke.
The scale of big up here is hard to conceive.
Very surreal…the smoke. Well, that, and being able to ride for hours and never have to pass another car. I only see them at the stops. The road is so long that everybody gets spread out. I end up totally isolated…running in my own little world. For hours and hours and hours.
The only real problem is that I am missing some stunning scenery. I can sometimes tell there is a huge, snow-capped mountain, but the camera can't see it at all.
They have rivers here that dwarf anything I've ever seen. Water rushing across a basin a mile wide sometimes. Usually get a pretty good view too…right through the metal grate deck of the bridge that crosses it. Hell, I can't even figure out how they planted the bridge!
This road is an amazing piece of work. Really. I am awestruck. It will take me a long time to articulate my impressions of this trip.
Smoke, wind, and bug juice. I'm addicted, plain and simple. Guys, this is better than sex (though I could use some of that too…).
