    So, I drove up from San Diego about 7 weeks ago and brought a bunch of motorcycles and Harbor Freight stuff for some of you guys in Anchorage.

    Well, my dad decided to move to Fairbanks to be closer to my grandfather during grandpa's last couple years, so I'm driving up AGAIN starting next Tuesday the 10th to drop off all my dad's stuff in Fairbanks.

    I do have some room in the Sprinter and trailer (I bought a brand new enclosed 12' trailer for the trip) to bring stuff up if anyone needs anything large that would cost a bunch to have shipped up. Not much time to get it all sorted, but let me know.

    Even better would be bringing stuff DOWN if you need that. I'm probably leaving the trailer in Fairbanks for my dad to sell (I was going to tow grandpa's UTV down to have here in San Diego but my cousin wrecked it a week ago) so ideally stuff that just fits in the Sprinter on the way down. It's going to be basically empty at the moment minus me and my one suitcase.

    If anyone knows anyone looking for a good, brand-new 2018 Look 12' enclosed tandem-axle trailer with a 6.5' interior height...it's on Craigslist in Anchorage and Fairbanks just in case I can find a buyer before I even make it up there. Willing to deliver anywhere reasonable in Alaska at no charge.

    Lemme know if you need anything hauled up/down.

    Damn, if this had been two weeks ago I would have been in heaven. Already spent the shipping money.

    I really should have posted a month ago when the trip was planned, but I've just been so busy that I didn't get around to it :(.

    Hi Ben, glad you are making another run. :wave
    I will check with the guys I know and see if I can get you some gas money.
    I'm really glad you brought the Harbor Freight bike lift up for me, I use it constantly. :thumb

    Ben,

    My wife may have a few boxes she wants brought up from the Paso Robles area. I'll be in touch super soon.
