Lots of folks stay at the Goldrush campground, it's conveniently located in the middle of town.

Yeah, that suggests there are new hippie days. Yah, mon, you think we can't pick you out of the crowd? I don't give a shit what you ride there. It's not a matter of whether it's a rally or not, we just want you to be there because we want to see some style.

The mounties might question that pea shooter and your Uly would probably get better milage than whatever your standing on there, but it would be good to see you in Dawson. The food and company are at least as good as Tastee Freeze :)

I camped at the Goldrush. The ground is like driving tent pegs into your concrete driveway. If I don't stay in a room I'm staying in the campground right before the ferry on the other side of the river from Dawson. Solo KLR is staying there. We are going up to Inuvik after D2D.

As for bags for your CBR, Givi make hard cases and mounts for it.

Great photo, Tom.

More D2D info for those interested:

Many of us enjoy hanging around the campfire Wed night at http://thompsonseaglesclaw.com/ in Tok.

The photo below was taken at about 4am


And then most of us who camp in Dawson City stay at http://www.goldrushcampground.com/



I'm excited to again hang with the 100+ locals atop The Midnight Dome late into the Solstice night following The Biker Games. Fun!

What does it mean to bloviate. You use these big words. Can't wait to do it again next year. Going up to Inuvik afterwards in 13.
