Arriving in Anchorage – finally

Wauw! The last 48 hours has been extremely hectic! It’s been an advanced logistic exorcize to navigate between rapping everything up at work, moving all our stuff from the apartment, making it ready for the tenant and packing for an 8 month motorcycle trip. We had 2 hours sleep Wednesday night and when we finally sat down in the airplane seat, we both signed off the net, probably with open mouths and free flowing saliva.

Condor airlines gets the following score: (from 1-5 where 5 is best):

So here we are in Anchorage. Dragging our heavy gear around (the bikes are in Fairbanks). First stop was to REI. A huge fantastic outdoor warehouse, where we picked up GPS, bear spray, sleeping mats ad pots for cooking.

 

 

 

 

Right now we are hanging out in a nice cafe trying to get hold of Barracuda Barbie from Rage City Rollergirls.

REI gets the following score
Selection of extremely cool outdoor gear – such a bear spray: 5
Prices: 4
Service from young well trained ad healthy sales rep: 5
Hot or Not: Flaming HOT!

    Hi mom and Niels – a bit funny to write this in English 🙂
    Yes, we got the bikes and they are great. And we spend the last 3 days driving from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay and back. An amazing and very very long trip to nowhere. North of Fairbanks there’s no internet or mobile connection so we have not been able to make any updates.
    Thanks a lot for checking on the apartment. We really appreciate it!
    Lots of hugs and kisses. Lars & Henriette

    Hi Kaisa. Oh, I’m so happy you have found the web page. I really have to apologies for my bad girlfriend behavior prior to our departure. I really wanted to talk to you, but I was soo stressed all the time. There was a lot I had to do at work and getting the apartment ready and packing for 8 months at the same time was just too much! We really missed this year midsummers celebration at Kattosaari! 🙁 Did you go there? We are in Fairbanks right now and it’s light all night. Amazing! Finally gor our bikes yesterday and they are beautful. Today we are heading up North towards Prudhoe Bay. Hugs to all of you. L&H
