BlueRoad: Alaskan Dream
I have decided to do some fundraising for my BlueRoad project. I really want to be able to do some amazing recordings of video and sound on my rides. I see such amazing views that I can't put to words and would love to bring everyone along with me. If you don't know, I have a house sitting gig in Wasilla, Alaska this summer. It has been a dream of mine to ride a motorcycle to Alaska for as long as I can remember. I wake up in the middle of the night so excited to be making my dream come true. But to make my dream come true I will need a little help from my friends.
Your donation will help with the purchase of equipment for audio/video recording and also help me with gas along the way.
To get an idea of just how far Alaska is away from my starting point of my parents house. Almost 4000 miles from Kentucky to Alaska. (I will actually be coming from Ft. Lauderdale FL with a stop off in Kentucky to get my boys their papers to go thru Canada.) That is 4000 miles one way... and just getting to the house sitting gig. I hope to visit all the places I can ride in Alaska. Especially, Seward, Alaska. So this trip alone to Alaska and back will be around 10,000 miles.
