Where he's at...

Somewhere between Sutton and Glennallen, which in Alaska terms is not too far from home. He is on highway 1 (I think there are six highways all told). The way the land lies, he has to go North before he can go South, so don't worry about his sense of direction.

For those of you who have been calling and emailing that you can't find the links in the blogs

HERE IS THE LINK TO FIND OUT WHERE ED IS - CLICK HERE YA BIG FREAKS

What I like about the Google Map device he uses is that there are photos of the places he will be - they are not our photos and some of them are definitely from the Department of Tourism. They were probably taken while standing ON the city dump to avoid photographing the city dump.

Oh, I forgot to post Ed's last email before he left Anchorage:

"Anchorage Weather:Same as 97 of last 103 days, gloomy with promise of continued glomy.Various forcasts: Some Sun or more rain, or coninued gloom, or...Also various wind readings: South or East or West or North

Goal for Day: Possible will be short with late start. King Mountain past Sutton.~80 miles. Thank you again for being so supportive."

Yeah, like I'd crush his dream. Please.

We're living vicariously, Ed! Congrats on pushing off and keep your bear repellent pepper spray under your pillow!

Whoa. He's really doing it. Left just in time, too - yesterday was what we'd call the first official "cold" day, the kind where you feel the cold through your autumn coat and realize it may be time for the next level of coat. Way to go, Ed! Compared to you, we are not bikers, we are lame. You rock.
