I really want to go. Unfortunately, I'll be on the left coast (I mean RIGHT on the coast) for the month of August.

July would work better for me! Being a designer by trade, I'd be happy to help out with t-shirts/stickers

Thanks for the invite Jim but I won't be able to make that date or July. So far I have a plan to leave solo here June 14 and make the D2D in Dawson City, Yukon and do some general farting around in the wilds of northern BC. I've been wanting to do the D2D for 10 years now and this looks like the year.

Also I'll be doing a few days layover near Smithers BC at the end of June to put a roof on the in-laws cabin. If anyone is up that way then please let me know...our cabin is only 400 kms/6 hrs to Hyder AK.

All are welcome to hang their hat/helmet while I'm there. So yeah....that's an invite. PM if your up that way.

View from the cabin on Babine Lake BC.








My son with an 8lb sockeye caught in late Aug. when the sport fishing is open. Just ask Alain in Portland about the salmon on Babine Lake . Some big rainbow trout come out of that lake in June.

Looks like I'm out on this one guys, sorry.

Leaving for the coast on July 30th. Would have to be home about a week before that by say the 23rd.

The other problem for me right now is funding. Retired from the FD in December and have only received 50% pay for the past 3 months. The system is making it difficult to get things straightened out. I expected this and am not eating catfood (yet) but living off savings is a bit scary so taking long trips becomes a bit of a luxury.

Apologies for the personal stuff but I thought I owe you an explanation.

I will certainly miss seeing everyone again.

Hello everyone, had a strange thing happen the other day and need some help. Went to hit the magic button the other day and nothing so I hit it again and "magic" it started but the starter won't disengage even with the key off so I disconnected the battery and took the switch apart and cleaned it with come contact cleaner spray, put it all back together and when I was reconnecting the battery it tried to start itsself again even with the key off. I'm now thinking that its the starter solonoid . Any ideas????

Jonathan, a few months ago I remember seeing a thread that you started asking if there was any interest in any Excel 18" 32 hole wheels. What ever became of this? I see your site doesn't list them Did I miss out or is it still in the works, just wondering I can't find any here in Thailand.

Thanks for any input of words of wisdom
Keith
