Interior Alaska in general

Mt Ryan Cabin Site

Dean needed to check on Tiff’s cabin on Mt Ryan and since I was there any way, we did a work little to the foundation and beams for my cabin. Leveled the beams and made up a material list to get the platform in. I don’t plan to put up the walls and roof for more »

Fairbanks – Circle Mail Trail, Mile 24

Saturday, June 11, 2017, a beautiful day and a lot cooler than the 90 degree weather we’ve been having for the past few days. This was the 2nd Snow Travelers summer ATV ride for the year. Only three of us showed up and I figured that was due to folks either not wanting to deal more »

Memorial Weekend 2017

Was a good weekend, not many FST folks showed up, but then there wasn’t many folks at the Nome Creek area at all, probable the lowest number of campers I’ve seen at Nome Creek for a number of years. Steve and Stoney left early, so Ingrid, David and I rode the Quartz Creek trail, it more »

So here it is May already and an early breakup and the temp are warming up. All the snow is gone, at least locally and nothing left for riding even in the mountains. I did get two late season trips into the cabin, one with Jake and one with Tyler. Hauled in two of the more »

2016 FST Sweetheart Run

The FST Sweetheart run was another great trip down the Tanana to Nenana and a lunch at the Monderosa. The river conditions were pretty good, but lacking in snow cover and lots of sheet ice and I was glad to have the Bearcat’s track studded up. However, those same wonderful studs also caused me some more »

Christmas with the Kids, cabin with Trish

We spent Christmas Eve with the kids at home and Christmas day packing for our trip to the cabin near Hurricane. This was the wife’s first trip to the cabin since the walls went up. She’d been there once before after we got the foundation and platform built, but it’s a big change from platform more »

The Cabin Has Stairs

Took a few days off of work and went down to the cabin. I left around 5:30 in the morning figuring I’d get to the parking area by 9:00 so I could ride in to the cabin before the snow started to get to soft to haul any loads. It went pretty good, the temps more »

Iron Dog Week 2015

After the Sweetheart run the week before I decided to make a cabin run and haul in some more lumber for the generator shack. Jake offered to come along so we also hauled in the new 7KW generator, which means I can run the chop saw again when getting the tongue and grove up on more »
