    Hey sorry for the delay but it’s been sold.

    FYI, I’m the same user as OP, I just lost my login info when I was first selling the board 🙂

    thanks jefe, I’ve never ridden any of the Arbor boards but I’ve always like them, maybe I’ll look into them a little more.

    Anyone tried an Athalon bag?

    I have an Alaska and NZ trip coming up and need a good bag for lot’s of gear.

    I know there is a weight restriction for flying, but is there often a size restriction? I am considering a 185cm ski/sb bag.

    Or a Rome Escort? No wheels, but a good price msrp.

    Where are you planning on going in AK??

    How long were you guys out there for? I’ve been wanting to hit up Haines for a long time! Maybe next year!

    Was the $400 flight to drop you off and pick you up?

    sweet thanks! While I was there I actually talked quite a bit with the guys at Beaver Sports about a fatback build. We put together a list of parts and now I’m just waiting on a final price to see how soon I can pull the trigger on that. But I definitely plan on getting a fat bike for around town. From where I will be living, everything I would need (including getting to work) is all within about 2-3 miles!!! not bad at all I must say 🙂

    I’m at the airport now but I’ll need to be up here by July 30th and I’m driving the Alcan and hope to do it in about 10 days, take my time and enjoy it so that would be great if we could meet up when I’m back up here and get all moved in etc. gotta get my truck winterized too etc!

    Would you recommend remote start as well?

    Thanks for the replays guys! Good and bad! I like to hear all sides.

    My first question is for you stomp pow… Where are those pics taken?? That looks plenty fun and fresh lines. I’m all for earning my turns.

    I’m actually up here in Fairbanks right now, had a job interview earlier today and head home tomorrow but so far like it here.

    I have some more questions and will post more when I’m home and am on my computer

    it has been a long goal of mine to climb Denali, whether I do it with or w/o a board, I dunno.

    I don’t have advice for you but look forward to your expedition and write up…a year from now 🙂

    Is Fairbanks that bad compared to anchorage? There is a university in anchorage and Fairbanks but I believe for engineering I’d need to go to Fairbanks.

    I agree with ale_capone…that first pic is incredible. That’d be so sweet to ride in those conditions.

    great write-up, pretty sweet conditions for june!

    I have the same red dakine pack! I like it a lot so far. Although its my only “backcountry” pack so I don’t have anything to compare it to.

    Sweet! If things go as planned I’d probably end up in Fairbanks. There is a university in Fairbanks and Anchorage but for my program I’d need to be at the Fairbanks campus.

    Sweet pics man! I was just thinking today how I wanted to get up on Hood and was wondering how the conditions were. Looks like there is still plenty of fun left up there!
