We are scratching our legs and arms like crazy, the Mosquitos laid into us last night and the whole day today I just wanted to rip-off the my riding-gear and scratch. But my focus soon changed when it started raining. I said in the blog after the 1st day of riding the Dalton Highway that it would have been a very different story if it had rained, and today it was different and a nightmare as it rained the entire day. And then came the smoke from the forest-fires, and then it started raining heavily and the clouds came down and we had to ride in the mist.
Once again Pappagaai took revenge, the Pilot-Truck slowed down in the muddiest section of the road-works and when Dog slowed down just a little, he started sliding down the slope and dropped the bike the Mud, chaos, and mud all over the riding-gear.
I am very thankful we are all safe in Fairbanks, over the past 4 days we have ridden on gravel for over 1600km and frankly, I have had enough Adventure riding for a while. I cant wait to ride in sunshine again on a proper tar road.
