And nobody felt it necessary to tell me.... Hmmmmm.

Well, I found an old raft, and I have loaded the bike and the trailer onto it. I am about to swim across towing the raft, but it will be slow going. And cold..... Hyah mule.

A Tsunami would have been quicker. Then I could have been carried across in a storage container, Hawwwwwww, hahahahaha, snork, wheeze.

Don't forget the narwhale alerts.

The Minister of Political Correctness has disqualified you for not posting in kilometers.

For those not familiar with Manitoba mosquitos, think of them as self propelled lawn darts.

Well, I made it to Alaska. Just got ashore in Wales, and rode the 18 miles to Tin City, where I will thaw out overnight, then a leisurely ride to NASSIR6. I picked up my Muskox Warning Whistles to mount on the front fairing, here in Tin City. There is no store, so what I did was hire two Inuut young people to ride up front and whistle when they see any Muskox. I hope it works, as I understand one never recovers their sense of smell if one hits a Muskox. Wish me luck.

P.S. The North Pacific is not as cold as the North Atlantic, where I kissed a cod that I jigged meself, and said the saying that must be said, many years ago. Deed I is me old (name for a rooster) and long may your big jib draw, and tossed back screech. For this I got me a certificate of honorary Newfiehood. Well, between the ceremony and marrying a Newfie maid as well.

I have reached Watson Lake, in the Yukon Territories, and that ALCAN was quite a ride. I have let the young Inuut people go home as there should be no Muskox from here on. We did see some Grizzlies, but the Inuut girls did not whistle, and it was almost the end of us. When I asked them why they did not whistle, they said "Not Muskox... you hire for Muskox, not bear" Well, I guess they are correct. It will now be a leisurely light trek from here to Simcoe, ON, as I have nine days to get there. See AllaYall at NASSIR 6. Keep my distance trophy warm and shiny, please.

If you're crossing Manitoba you'll need mosquito alerts, preferably extra large. Contact Wexy for pricing.

I need them here in the Yukon, and will in Northern BC and Altaberty. And they are Jumbo sized here. The kind that rip off an arm and laugh at you while they eat it. Will be in Valleyview tomorrow visiting with family, so maybe they have advice on this problem.

P.S. The advice from the Northern Altabertyans was to ride far and fast, so I have done that. Edmonton in my Rear View......(sent from my CB radio)
