This trip has been extremely important for us aside from the adventures that we’ve had. Anytime you travel for an extensive amount of time, it’s difficult to avoid being impacted by the experience, and our journey to the Arctic Circle bowled us over in several ways.
I think that one of the most prevalent lessons we were taught on this trip was to be flexible. As we made our way well into Utah, a difficult decision had to be made as Elga was experiencing a few hiccups to her health.
Idaho is beautiful. It really is. astoundingly beautiful, in fact. Neither Kristen or I were aware of that before this week.

Want to know what it feels like ride a Ural? Over the next couple days we’ll be adding some videos so that you can get a taste. Enjoy!

Riding a motorcycle is much more fun when it’s not raining or windy. Kristen and I spent the last week or so riding through pretty nasty conditions but our ride
I think the one thing Kristen and I have learned from the last 900 miles of road is that this part of Canada is extreme. There is no middle ground here
