    Plan is to leave 6/15/2013 and return on or about 7/7/2013. Leaving from the SF Bay Area. Anyone else out there planning a similar ride/time frame?

    Hello and welcome ADVn00b raider-rider.

    Once you're north of the border I'm sure you'll see a number of other riders on a similar schedule.

    Good luck and have fun, Mark H.

    I will be leaving 6/15 from WY. A friend is riding my bike to WY from MD so I can have more time in Alaska. I plan on being back in MD on 7/15

    I'm back in the Bay Area and looking to meet up either April 15/16 or beginning of May to discuss possibly sharing the ride up.
    Looking to leave around the 8/9th of June to have an extra week in Anchorage, Seward and Homer.

    You headed for D2D? Lots of folks from all over will be in CD and AK around that time. I plan on entering CD on the 13th or 14th at Coutts, BC. If you are interested in coming back on the ferry from Haines on the 27th, I have room in a cabin there the night before; just two of us in a 4 bed cabin at this time. PM me if interested or for more info.

    I'll be dropping by in July. Leaving central Illinois last week of June for a 30 day ride. Oil change and maybe a change of tires.

    Three weeks is a push. See if you boss will give you a couple more weeks off for the trip of a lifetime. Three weeks is barely enough if you start in Anchorage. Three weeks from SF is a squeeze. I left from Tahoe on July 8th and didn't return until September 9th and I wished that I had more time. Anyway, enough lecturing. You will have an absolute blast. I went up the Cassiar and came back the AlCan. Good way to do it. Fun travels.
