    Well, if all worked out, you are on your way North. There are plenty of recommendations once you cross the border into the US. I'd say hit the far west coast on your way up (Hwy 1, etc.) and then drop back down the Rockies on your way home - will be much less trouble from the weather then.

    Ping me when you get to San Francisco. :freaky

    Happy riding and looking forward to your report!

    Hi GauteRider,

    If your route takes you through Prince George on your way to or from Alaska, drop me a PM. I live 10 min west of the city on acreage so there's lots of space to camp. If the weather is poor or you just need a break from living in a tent, there's a spare room that you're welcome to, also.

    Good luck with the trip planning and ride safe!
