Luggage860 viewsAll our possessions for the next 2 1/2 years: Three bikes, two trailers, and the contents of three bins. They are sitting in our driveway in Boise waiting for the trip to the airport.
08060803.JPG
Waiting705 viewsThe trip from Boise to Deadhorse took almost 24 hours. We had to route ourselves in a roundabout way since we could only fly on large aircraft that would accomodate all our luggage. We actually had four different flights which means four flights to wait for.

Prudhoe Bay Airport561 viewsEven after an exhausting flight we were so excited about finally starting our trip that we weren't in the least bit tired.
08060904.JPG
Deadhorse Accomodations559 viewsWe stayed at the Arctic Caribou Inn the night before we started our trip.

Deadhorse, Alaska587 viewsThe town of Deadhorse consisted of not much more than work yards for companies supporting the oilfields.

Playtime in Deadhorse646 viewsThe kids found a frozen pond just thawing out to throw rocks into.

Assembling our Gear672 viewsThe good folks at the Arctic Caribou in let us use their spacious, heated workshop to assemble all our equipment. I couldn't imagine doing this outside in the drizzle and cold!
08061006.JPG
Arctic Ocean857 viewsSome crazy people actually swam in the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean. Why anyone would want to do this is way beyond me.

The Official Start of our Trip1230 viewsWe started cycling from the Arctic Caribou Inn on a bright, beautiful sunny day. May we have many more of them!
08061015.JPG
Coldfoot is a Long Way from Here!1330 viewsThere is absolutely nothing but the rugged Arctic wilderness for the next 240 miles. Needless to say we had lots of food tucked away.
08061016.JPG
Ice Melt837 viewsThe rivers were just thawing out from the long cold winters where it routinely gets down to 60 degrees below zero.
08061022.JPG
Caribou877 viewsWe saw lots of caribou along the way. We've heard there are herds with over 1,000 members.
