    currently on the road, but I call Tassie home
    Thanks for the advice. Hope to see you on the road. Thankfully the support car decided to blow the clutch just before leaving Campbell river on Vancouver island. Bugger! But better here than further north! Let's hope the rest of the trip is more smooth sailing!

    I'm in exactly the same situation, week on, week off up in Fairbanks, but the wife is always in town. PM sent to Barb. We are in Eagle River, about a mile from the Nature Center, at the end of the road, about 12 miles from the Glenn Hwy. There is hardly cell phone service out there, but we have a place to stay with a landline and DSL, and a carport, tools, and food, and coffee!

    Hi Guys,
    I will be leaving Montreal on July 3rd for Anchorage, Denali, Prudhoe Bay and Inuvik.
    I am reading about your emergency list, Where can I get the list ? How can I reach Barb??

    Where is the ideal place to get new TKC ?

    I saw a NICE selection of TKC tires at BARB's store: Alaska Leather in Anchorage.
    Have a great trip.

    Hi, I would like to add my info to the contact tree, and have read thru the thread.
    The link on Barb's site doesn't seem to work.

    The link is working, you cannot add your own info though. Just pm it to me. To get the emergency contact, go to my website and click on travelers page on the bottom left, then hit emergency numbers. Thanks, Barb

    Thanks, I tried those actions.
    This is the site link I went to...

    http://www.alaskaleatheronline.com/servlet/StoreFront

    All the links give me a tiny little hand as I scroll over them, except the travelers page,
    therefore I could not get to the emergency contact list.
    I sent you a PM right after I posted earlier, with all my contact info to be included on the contact list.
    You probably have it by now.

    The link Tom provided works fine, so I have access now, thanks.

    And thanks for taking the initiative to do this. I've helped travelers before, but it was only by chance.
    I think it's great to be more organized and available to help.

    Great to stumble on this list in prep for AK travel this summer. Gives me some peace of mind.
    Now I'll make a point to stop by the shop.
    Thanks again

    Can't the names be classified by region? then if someone breaks down they can go to that region and start making their way down the list?

    God Bless you Barb, my new business, Dick's Dust, custom cabinets,kitchens and interior installations and finishing, don't need to be nice to anyone or kiss any ass to dumb fks.

    Hope winter is kind to you guys, say hi to Vic, and look forward to seeing you guys in the spring in case I don't make it over for some skiing before that!

    I think D2d 2014 is going to be a blast.

    Cheers

    Thats a great idea! I hope to do lots of solo trips in the future and I think this would be a great way to help out others in times of need.
