    Best Truck I Ever Owned

    This is my 1500 Dodge Ram. One when I was Piloting with it in 1997. This pic was taken on top of Attican Pass on the Haul Road on the way to the oil fields in Barrow. It was 40 below zero this particular day and the climb up Attican had taken over an hr. The pass is 9 miles long from bottom to the top where this pic was taken.

    The other Pic was taken yesterday while plowing. I have over 400k on this truck and I still prefer it to my new Ram. Its a 5.9 with all the toys that were available in 1996. The only major repair was last year when I had to put in a new Tranny. You do need reverse. lol

    Does anyone know how to resize a Pic. Having trouble with the one I took yesterday. Its way to big

    Shut Off

    We were shut down. The tractor had a problem so we were all in another truck except for the pics. I had just finished checking my fluid levels so thats why my truck wasn't running. Mind you I was shut down for less then 10 minutes. By that time it was ice cold again and took forever to get warm. I have made that particular run about 40 times and its some of the most beautiful untouched country in the world. About 80 miles north of this we had a herd of Caribou that ran along side us for about 10 miles. I'll try and find those pics for you guys. Average speed was about 25 mph because of the tractor problems. Other then that it was a great trip.

    everytime i see pics of alaska it makes me want to go there. i knew someone from there once that always talked about it. she ended up staying in the u.s. though said money was scarce where she was from. i would love to at least vacation there sometime. i would also love the challenge of dealing with the terrain and elements. sounds like it would be right up my alley.
