    Default Heading up the Haul Road

    Anyone heading up around the 7th - 8th of August PM me. Looking to conserve fuel..... aka truck pooling. I have a F-250 and a camper with only 2 people.

    The only drawback on this Dave, is you never know who your gonna get stuck with, especially when your camping in your slide-in...don't wanna wake up to some stranger spooning you when your out in the middle of nowhere, and ruin a great hunt, or hunting adventure. I'd get all the info. I could on everyone prior to leaving the Fairbanks area to be sure, there are some wacko's out there. Did a couple of hunt and fishing trips with people I barely knew and it was ruined by stupidity and carelessness, and lack of experience.

    Keep me in mind next year, Dave. With teachers having to be back at work on the 14th here, I don't think I can pull it off this year.

    Default Hey Dave

    I've been hitting the Haul road for 4 weeks now hunting bears.The road is in excellent shape from North Pole to the Arctic Circle.Now the only thing is I got three flat tires in three weeks.I figured out why.....While they are doing there new road construction witht he rock there blasting from on top of this one hill,well that rock is way sharpand all three times I went thru an area they just dumped the rock and where leveling it off.
    So take it easy thru those spots and try not to sidewall your tires.Good Luck to you again this year up there.Daniel
