Infusing the EM 50...Coldfoot, Alaska 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Haul road see's a lot of industrial equipment...we try to pull over for these guys....the windshield is already wasted from a salvo of rocks and stones..

 

 

 

 

 

 100 miles south of Deadhorse...

 

 

 

 

 

Musk Ox

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deadhorse and Prudoe bay...remote to get to but incredible infrastructure in place......it sends 17% of America's fuel consumption 800 miles down the pipeline....

 

 

 

 

Shite....The EM 50 got a friggen flat tire at Atigun Pass.....fortunately we have a handy man jack and a Tom on board..

 

 

 

 

 

....Spare Tire affixed.... fire and beer to push back the 10F temps ....Atigun pass...

 

 

 

 

 

When you close in on the Arctic Ocean ... fog.......

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the pipe is not actually attached to anything when it is above ground....but just lies on its supports freely....... it is in a constant state of motion on its supports as temperature and geologic changes occur....it moves this way and that way....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A tiny tiny section of pipe....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Near the Yukon River Crossing now ...its day .......uhhhh.....cant remember....a week maybe?...10 days from start?....  something like that....thermometer here reads 3... I went to bed and missed shooting the Northern Lights...but Doug got a good one
