I returned to the Cassiar.

I decided to take a couple extra days off and make a longer weekend out of the 4th, taking advantage of the Monday holiday.

Leaving Friday after work, I headed North.

Over the course of 6 days (counting Friday), 2987 miles and 51 gallons of gas, I rode from the Seattle to the Junction 37 with the Alaska Highway in the Yukon, then dropping back down into Hyder Alaska to look at Glaciers and Celebrate the 4th of July on American soil (what little there is there).

Having traveled to the North before on a KLR, this was so much more enjoyable.

The smooth engine, the great fuel mileage, and the overall position seemed to keep me comfortable all 6 days.

Super happy so far with it.

The Yukon!

That's a lot of ice...

Wouldn't mind spending some time by that cabin. Looks like a beautiful spot.

If anyone's into reading (and some more photos), I've slowly been getting around to editing what I wrote on my trip and posting on my blog Mic's Adventure

It's been a slow process. I meant to start Wednesday night when I got home, but instead came home to a busted out passenger window in my Xterra, so had to deal with that over the couple days, and it ended up being a long weekend with catching back up with work.

I have up to Day 3 posted now.

And Donny, I've gained a little back. I've been in a bad run of luck with injuries. Neck injury 2 years ago, gained 20lbs back and never really was able to get it off. So I've been hovering around 200.

This year has been hard, leg injury during my first race put me out for the entire season, then I was hit twice cycling, once a major concussion, the second happened 2 days before leaving my trip where a gal right turned right into my leg.

Lost 8k in bicycles in the last 2 months, not a happy camper.
