I hope Alaska warms up a bit for you.

and stay at White River just south of Beaver Creek if you get a chance.

and eat at 1202 in Beaver Creek if you get a chance.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

I think that was it.

Yup, that and a TT motorized roadbook and relocator bracket (modified).

Two days before that picture was taken the bike was little more than a frame and engine on the lift in my garage. Lets just say it needed a little work to make it Alcan ready. The rider is Tim Pindel from Las Vegas, a good freind of mine.

It was great meeting you at the start Justin.

It's good to see you're still going

By the dirt on your glasses and helmet it appears to be a bit dusty

Your map seems to imply you are spending a lot of time on BC 97. That was paved when I went through there in July. How'd you get so dirty?

'mostro & DataDaddy headed up to North Canol Road today to the edge of the Northwest Territory. Tent camping for them. Off & on showers here in Whitehorse.

I offered to do laundry for them, but it's still sitting by my chair. Guess I should get on it.

Hey Guys,

While you're in Dawson, it behooves you to meet Dick Van Nostrand at the Downtown Hotel. He's a GS rider, hardcore Pterodactyl and Grüver, and generally a Hardass role model who always makes you laugh and appreciate why you're in this world (see also: my signature). He and Joanne do a tremendous job of hosting the Dust2Dawson in June, and are motorcycle friendly.

Tell him hi, and be kind to their staff.

If you're up for a 50-75 mile mining road loop, head up Bonanza Creek road past Gold Dredge #4, then keep going to King Solomon's Dome and return to the Klondike Hwy via Hunker Creek Road. Either direction works. You have the option of doing the longer loop, but you'll have a pretty fun ride w/ the shorter one. Ask Dick for the map and route suggestions.

See y'all in FAI on Sunday night!
