If many a goose is geese, does that mean many a moose is meese?
My brother and I were driving back to Anchorage from Whittier in summer 2001 when we slowed to watch an Alaska state trooper try to rescue a moose that he thought was stuck in a bog by the highway around Turnagain. He stepped into the water and immediately disappeared over his head. The moose chewed his grass and casually walked out and on his merry way.

I love Alaska, for motorcycling your season is short mid-june to mid-august but the endless daylight, lack of traffic and natural beauty makes it the best place to ride. I have taken my KLR650 down every highway in the state. My favorite of course is deadhorse. The 500 mile ride from Fairbanks to Deadhorse is absolutely amazing. I would encourage any rider who wants to do it, to do it. Has anyone ridden a TW200 up the dalton? I am probably the only numbskull on here who managed to get a speeding ticket north of the Arctic circle on my KLR650. Maybe if took the TW200 I won't get pulled over again. The speed limit on the whole highway is 50mph.
Wow! That's a ticket worth framing. Traffic regularly exceeds 65 mph on the Dalton-especially in the early spring when the ground is frozen and the road is flat! It's the best time to be a truck driver in Alaska. I have been passed at 60 mph by truckers on the Dalton hauling dual tankers, south of Deadhorse. I guess they must get excited about the 5 Star accommodations!
Used to do the run from Anchorage to Cantwell each night. I would stop in sunshine to grab a treat and take a break. Three were two rigs that would pass me each night. They were there when I pulled in and I waited for them to leave before me. Not far up the highway they were pulled over. One had hit a nice bull moose and tore the front end off the truck. That should slow them down a bit. I worked for Carlile a couple different times when operating heavy equip was slow. Loved the scenery and the wildlife I would see on the many trips. Seeing Denali at midnight with the top glowing red from the midnight sun was a real treat as not everyday or night as it makes it's own weather. Just something about that country that becomes a part of you that wants you to go back.
