Thank you. Wish I could claim all these photos as my own, but quite a number of talented photographers have contributed to this thread. You'll be expected to donate to the cause after you get back home as well.

Spring is here - it almost got up to zero at Deadhorse today. Come on up.

Looking forward to meeting up. You aren't going to restrict me to telling TRUE stories, are you?

Yeah - I love it there. Not far from Tok, so I can run up there to have a cup of coffee or a meal with riders coming through who won't be going down toward Anchorage. Only trouble is - the highway only goes in two directions.
