Maybe I'll get around to uploading the Big Bend trip on my next jaunt into town... That'd be pretty cool I think. As for me.... I'm off to the brewery.

Dude, this is a pretty epic trip. I thought my few thousand mile trips this summer up to Wyo and MT were epic . . . you win.

So I'm sitting in Anchorage after meeting up with the very awesome benbacher and picking up my new front end lights. I got the pencil beams on but the 2nd set are spliced in and I have to pick up a wiring kit to install the second pair. Basically I am moving the 4 diffused fog lights to the bedrack to be used as ditch/camp lights and getting a bit more illumination distance/width up front. Hitting the two deer on my last road trip and almost t-boning an elk made my mind up for me.

I will try to post some pics tonight and tomorrow to catch up with some of the stuff from my summer working in Kodiak, but I am headed to Denali for a few days of clean air and bear spray, so if you guys don't hear from me by saaaaaaaaay Saturday (should be hitting Fairbanks around then) check for my PLB/EPIRB signal and call in the Marines.

Found a few hiccups in my truck today. One of my battery tie downs had something better to do and disappeared leaving me to reposition my battery cover every stop versus it taking one of the battery clamps off. The little panel under my drivers side headlight would have vamoosed had it not been zip tied from the front bumper install. I'm really thinking my frame is bent now. I have a few places where the paint is gone down to bare metal. Once I'm done drinking (aka tomorrow morning) I'll take some pics of the things I'm seeing. One of the bolts holding my bed rack on rattled loose and my afrotech university cb antenna mount is well, frankly, I'm about to gorilla tape it upright, but it's more sturdy than the famous fab thru tailgate one I had so I'm OK with it having aka bout gangster lean.

Much envy of this trip! Thanks for your service.

Saw your fishing pics... you're not Flash Gordon. This is bogus.

I will definitely have to do something like this at some point in life.

It's only getting better......

I made a small (ish) pit stop yesterday and today, and by that, I mean it was an 18 hour drive round trip... I'm working on uploading the pics now, but here's a sneak peak.
