On this trip I took 1750
pictures. I have posted some of these here on this website, along with a
travelogue of my trip. The travelogue is divided into 6 sections (see
below). All the pictures on this trip were taken with an
Olympus OM-1 SLR camera, using Kodak ASA64 colour slide film.
I have included various pictures in this
travelogue for several reasons:
They are scenic.
They show a representative section of the
highway or country.
They show some unique aspect of the area.
They tell part of the story of the trip.
They help to convey what it was like
to travel by moped.
On Monday Feb 14, 2005 I was interviewed on the "Two Wheel Power
Hour" show, hosted by Larry Ward, which airs on 570 WKBN in Youngstown, Ohio.
the travelogue, please bear in mind that they refer to the roads and highways
as they were in 1978, NOT today!
Please come with me and take a
tour of western and northern Canada
by moped: the slow, scenic way.
I now invite you to...
the tour with the first page in sequence:

to the start of the Alaska Highway)

you're done, you may wish to read the two
newspaper/periodical articles about this trip:
A World Record?
the Guinness World Records Organization has chosen to not track world
record journeys made on true mopeds, I have taken the liberty of
declaring this moped journey
to be longest journey ever undertaken on a true moped. :)
