so i started biking north to alaska on the 15th, i biked about 300 hundred miles in three days. this was through very mountainous terrain and at one point i came through dessert which i wasn't expecting, ran out of water, became dehydrated. i was given water by a motorist and made it to the next town. i may have pushed myself a little hard but i was ok with that. i left my helmet out with my bike while i went to use the bathroom. when i came back it was gone, luckily nothing else was. there was nowhere to buy a new one so i had to continue biking to the next town. i started biking the next day and made it about 30 miles before i decided to hitch to the next town. this lovely couple picked me up and drove me another 200! miles to prince george bc. i was able to get a new helmet and other supplies i needed here. the couple decided to house and feed me for the rest of the day. they looked at my map to see how much farther i had to go, and we both were in agreeance that i wasn't going to get where i wanted in the amount of time a was giving myself. now today i wake up and breakfast is made. we sit down to eat and they have smiles on there face. i ask "what's up?". they tell me that they would like to buy me a grey hound ticket all the way to white horse. this would take about 1000 miles off of my tour. leaving me with still another 900 miles to tour to homer alaska.
my main conflicts with this is that i feel it makes things a little too easy. i came to look for an adventure, although i have had one so far, and once off the bus it will continue. it still feels a little wrong. at the same time there offer is amazing, and will make it so i can get to alaska on time.
