Alaska Trip

Anyone wanting a partner to ride up to Alaska from the West Coast area around the 5th of July.
I am going no matter what but it would be nice to have a travel partner in case of problems.
Planning on touring Canada and Alaska for 3-4 weeks. Nothing is set in stone. This will be my first trip up North.
Will probably camp 1/2 the time to defer costs and enjoy the outdoors.
I'm 58, recently divorced and thought what the hell, now or never.

Hi Ryan,

If you're not able to hook up with a riding partner before your departure, don't sweat it. There will be plenty (on the order of many hundreds) of riders going to, riding in, and coming from Alaska during your timeframe. It's normal for solo riders to hook up with others along the way, especially north of the Canadian border. You'll likely spend your days leap frogging with fellow riders between gas, meal, and sleep stops.

Have a good ride!

Get away from the roads and you'll find plenty of places where you're all alone.
