    Visit the UAF dorms the night before you leave and you will find some northbound riders to ride with. The challenge is picking one with a compatible travel style!

    OK I think I'll shoot for the weekend of the 24th, would like to like up with other hacks like myself. Tewster I live here so I can link up on the 23rd, and Sunflash we can link up anytime I'm always riding around.

    Funny... we (2 of us). Will be at the dorms on June 23rd as well. Planning on two nights there. Maybe three depending on the weather. We are planning a day trip to the AC sign then back to Fairbanks. That run will be more fun if it isn't raining and if we can do it dry we might be willling to put if off a day if the 24th was rainy.

    I would join you on the wife's new 700GS but think she would be pretty pissed off when I got home and she sees it.

    I might have a window of opportunity from 23-25 of June. Were you looking at leaving that Friday morning?

    My boss was clear I cant take any more time off this summer.... But... I might be able to do a fast trip... Something like ride to fairbanks on a Saturday evening, meet up Sunday AM, ride to arctic circle, head back to Fairbanks, ride back to anchorage Monday. All the way to deadhorse could be a stretch for 2.5 days from anchorage

    It could happen though

    3 of us are flying up on June 23rd. Leaving on the 24th to head north. Guess there will some other bikes around. Figured with the D2D the week before, it would be a dead week. Guess not. Probably staying in the dorms that night also.
