Got my new wheels, my flights booked and my bear mace on order. Six weeks to crack on with the dissertation, do some planning, witness the villa win the fa cup and fatten up! Its -7C in Deadhorse, Alaska and the road looks like this –

The governor thinks its a state disaster so i’m hoping the sun does its stuff and melts that ice as its the only way out of the town with one shop and a population of 2174, a nights hotel stay looks like its gonna cost me nearly a months budget so ill be straight on my bike. A little nervy (less so about bears now, more about camping in snow) but a lot excited, i’m sure my friends can’t wait for me to get on my way and stop banging on about one thing and one thing only.

Hey at least if I don’t get far, I now know how to set up a blog, cheers Ash!
