    Clinton - somehow WAY-Y-Y back I thought your report had ended, so till now I had not read the last four (five?) pages.

    Glad I found 'em. GREAT report!

    FWIW - thanks for letting me try on your Leatt neck brace at our camp at the west end of the Denali Hwy. I ended up getting a Motorad GPX one off E-bay, and ended up finishing MY D2D ride solo', but that's another story!

    Cheers,
    Ed

    Hi Ed - glad you enjoyed them.

    Hard to believe it was a year ago when I made that journey and first met you on the road — I really enjoyed hanging out with you guys up in AK.

    After I returned from that trip I spent 12 months finishing off the house and have just leased it out for two years.

    After eliminating all the stress inducing stuff in my life this is all that's going to remain with me.

    I'm now ready to hit the road again to remind myself about what’s important...

    Clinton - IF you end up near Kelowna, BC (Apr to Oct), or Florence, AZ (REST of the year) - try to contact me!
    I'm on here:

    :clapIf you come back this way drop by this time. We can go ride 31 BC, I'll try not to land on top of a bear like last week right there on Canada day.....:D

    Or some Poutine in Revelstoke served with a pretty accent from down under.:wink:

    One of the best I've read in a while. You, sir, are a great story teller. I really enjoyed the report. Hope to beer with you on the road sometime. Ride safe
