Even if you leave alone you will not be lonely, there are so many folks riding up there that time of year you will surely cross paths and ride with someone at least part of the way, unless you prefer not to of course...
Good times as it was on my bucket list and I did it last year in June. WOW! Want to go back again SOON! Enjoy your ride!

Good luck!

I hope your trip to the great frontier will go good and for sure I'll be following along. Two of our kids live in Anchorage so it's always fun to keep track of these RR's. Thanks for taking the time for the rest of us.

Good luck!

See you on the raod?

I too am leaving for Alaska on July 3rd, solo, but from Boise, ID. Will be crossing the border at Roosville in Montana. Sounds like we will be traveling to Alaska on different sides of British Columbia. My wife and daughter will meet me in Anchorage around the 20th for a week of sightseeing. Will be a welcome break during the journey.

Hope to see you along the road

Thanks for following along, lots of friends and family in Anchorage, I wonder if your kids know Kaladi Brothers Coffee, a life long friends coffee place in Anchorage, the Coffee is so good, it may be one of the things that keeps me driving that direction!!!
