Alaskan Caribou Adventure

Going anywhere from Lander, WY is always an endeavor. I left my home at 8am on a Friday, and after a five hour drive and three flights later, I arrived in Fairbanks, AK at 2am the next day.  Luckily my hunting partners had already made it into town and had secured a hotel room with space for me to get a few hours of decent sleep.  It was a long first day of the journey, but no complaints here – I was on my way to the Arctic Circle!
