June 1: Hitch Hiking The Al-Can

auru continues to make his way back down to Phoenix, Arizona from Valdez, Alaska hitch-hiking. A long way home... He left Valdez May 26th.




Photo from May's update... would you pick this guy up?




Okay, so Tauru had to clean up a little... Here he is in Tok, Alaska ...about as the sign says, 93 miles from the Canadian Border.




Is he Asian ...or a Native? He ended up getting rides from Natives ...who thought he was one of them! His names on various rides: "Tauru Running Horse", "Tauru Flying Eagle", "Tauru Eat Too Much", "Tauru Full of Shit," ...




The backpack... and a gallon of water. Need to survive out there in the wilderness. Longest wait? 36 hrs for a ride! A room for the night? Wherever you want.




A lake as of May 30th... isn't it suppose to be summer? Finally thawing out.
