Noop. Too much going on lately for my little head to keep track of.

A short pencil beats a long memory though so I'll get the schedule sorted and post back up!

What's your route and time table? Quite a few of us (this is only my 2nd D2D) head to Tok and camp the first night at Thompson's Eagle Claw. Vanessa is THE BEST!!
I'll probably be leaving around the same date, Tues, or wednesday. Heading ro Tok, to camp out, then next day to Dawson City. I have two buddies coming up from Utah on their Bmw, and Ktm's that will be arriving on Friday. We will leave the next day for Inuvik.

Im looking at keeping it on the cheap and camping the whole way...We'll probably cross paths at some point though... Cheers

I finally have my KLR in the condition I want it to be in.
So now I can finally do the D2D ride. (Last year I was still working on it)
But I don't really know a lot about the logistics involved.
And I have yet to do a ride longer than 200 miles.

I figure that im going to sign up though, as soon as I can figure these things out.

I ran my KLR one year, had zero issues with regarding fuel. Fuel when you can: Glenallen, Tok, and Chicken and you will be fine. Most camp in Tok on the way up and some on the way back. There are some camp spots in Dawson and you can probably still find a bed somewhere in town.

Glennallen is a good shakedown cruise out of Anchorage, so is Valdez or Tok for that matter.

I have a hotel room in the Downtown Hotel and my roommate can't make it. If anyone wants to split the room it has two beds. Just hit me up. My plan is to leave Wed. and ride straight through, but my leave starts on Tuesday so being flexible.

Alaska is cold, so far I estimate a 220+ fuel range on my 13 KLR so you are good on fuel. The longest stretch is Chicken to Dawson at about 160ish I think. I think I can make it from Tok to Dawson on a tank. If I ride the Tiger I am going to try that since its set up to carry an extra gallon.

As always leaving Anchorage on Tues around 7pm and napping in Tok prior to breakfast at Fast Eddies and heading up. Pie in Chicken (Old Chicken never the New 2 Story) and a easy ride in for lunch at Kate's.

Everyone needs to be made aware of Susan, of the old original Chicken. First turn to the right as you come down the hill into Chicken from Tok. Sign for airport at the turn.

Susan has been a big time supporter and sponsor of D2D from the get go!

Susan is facing some tough times as Holland America is flying more guests in and out of Dawson instead of busing over the Top of the World.

She makes all her goodies fresh everymorning, (very early in the morning) and I have been there many times for that with Jack still surging through my veins and the need for fresh coffee and bailys.

Which weekend in June does D2D event usually take place?? Is there a specific by-law for that or it changes from year to year?
