    Cool-blue Rhythm Go west, young man....

    Well, I'm at my summer job on the Alaska Peninsula, the stretch of land that separates the Bering Sea from the North Pacific Ocean, before the Aleutian Islands begin. It is a very remote area of Alaska. Some funky weather, a lot of bears, and some scenery too. I brought the Pugs out with me this year for kicks and giggles, and it is performing admirably so far. Lots of black volcanic sand beaches to ride on.

    Heading out from Port Moller, riding north along the Bering Sea:



    Cutting inland I ride through the old grass covered dunes beyond the beach:



    Slogging through the tundra. You do NOT want to crash here; you would never get the lowbush cranberry stains out.



    Heading back into Moller Bay, with the Aleutian Range looking on:

    Internet access and a bike?!? You must be moving up the food chain of Fish & Game to be sporting those two in the bush. It'll be nice to have you hangin' around the boards again this year.

    How wide are those tires? Do they rub the stays on the rear?

    The beaches there look pretty cool to ride on - weather permitting of course. Between the winter and your summer gig there you're going to get lots of miles out of the Pugs - ride on and keep the pics coming.

    p.s. Just 5 posts till 1,000 - I have to find some other things to talk about today to get me over the hump.

    Um, I'd say the original Wildfire Designs "Fat Bike" is the coolest.

    The Pugs is just a design ripoff.

    I don't think he meant that Pugs's in general were the coolest, but rather that MY Pugs is the coolest.

    Tscheez,

    In that second picture, I think I detect the lone earring in the left ear. Is that still cool in Alaska? I'm thinking about getting one, but want to make sure that they are still in style. It would go great with my European swim wear.

    EL Chingon - as you might guess, since Alaska is a little out of the way we're behind the fashion trends -- so they tend to have a little more staying power than cosmopolitan places like Moab and NYC.

    Here are some recent trends just making their way up or are still hip/cool/rad/groovy in the AK:

    Members Only Jackets
    Disco
    Neon clothing
    Grunge
    Clear Pepsi
    Spandex and big hair - on both men and women
    Mood rings
    REO Speedwagon
    Parachute pants
    The "Brat Pack"
    Pet rocks
    New Wave
    Cabbage Patch Kids
    The Atari 2600
    White jeans
    New Coke
    The Adkins Diet

    Sometimes we're a little behind, but I think we're doing a pretty good job of getting caught up, don't you think???

    It's a whale, but hard to say for sure what species at this point. My guess is young grey whale teriyaki.

    There were two dead walruses and a sea otter on the beach also, but I'll spare you those pics.
