Take the bridge to Hawaii and turn right. (Seriously, I apologize for getting your hopes up. I was hoping you'd have a reply by now, I have relatives in Alaska and info on traveling there via bike would make a good read.) I would love to ride up to visit them, but, from NY, it isn't likely I'd ever sell the idea to my wife.

I'd say to take a trailer with plenty of extra cans of fuel in it..who knows what hours the gasoline stores have up that way and if their closed and you are in the middle of mooseville somewhere, the Bears might get you while your waiting for the store to open because you ran out of fuel.. :lol:

Take I94 to I5, go through the Canadian Border in BC. Stay as long as you can in the US as Canadian prices on gas are murder right now. http://www.anchorage.net/722.cfm

Have a safe trip...I ain't no teacher that's for sure, just having some fun because there was an opening ....Bored I guess... :D Burrito's ohhh man...I like those too...Oh how about some boiled peanuts, have you guy's ever tried boiled peanuts from the Southern States like Bama and South Carolina, Miss. ect. Louisiana make's them Cajun style[ boiled in cajun spices]...Oh man those are really good..Folks up North have never heard of such a thing I bet, but that's what makes America so cool..Different foods..

Boiled peanuts are like the original crack, but then again so is cracklin, and jumbaliya, and boudin, and well you get the picture. I love southern cooking.
