Macuser, I'm riding the coast highway in June to Sandy Eggo and back in the first 2 weeks of July. Camping all the way down.
Everyone else, we're riding up to Hyder, Alaska and back in a few weeks in case anyone's interested. I'm riding the VFR and not the BRP though.
Here's a rough timeline with destinations after Hyder still up in the air:
Wednesday, , leave Calgary and head for the Mount Robson Lodge campground near Jasper.
Distance: 504 kms
Thursday we head for Alaska, arriving in Hyder some time after supper.
Distance: 982 kms
Time: 12 hrs
Details: Camp or stay at a hotel. After that long day it may be nice to have a bed and a shower.
