    Plan to leave DC mid-May 2018, for Tuk (with a quick hook through Fairbanks and Denali and staying a couple of days with a friend in Tok). R1200GSAW. About 8 weeks total with one week staying in Tuk to transmit (HAM operator). Anyone in the mid-Atlantic region want to explore riding up together, PM me.

    It's all about opening the area to resource extraction. With global warming there will be a lot more raw resources avalaible.

    I'm game to try, even just getting again to Inuvic would be great. I would like to leave from the GTA first week of June, (as stated above minimal rain and bugs, best month to go) and am looking for some one to team up with, ride a yellow, 2011 GSA. If interested please email me (rennissmithatgmaildotcom)

    I'm leaving tomorrow for Dead Horse. I know I'm a little late. Since I'm not on a time crunch I'll explore the possibility of Inuvik-Tuk also. I just found out about this road. Has it been done on a bike yet? I like a challenge and I'm thinking the Haul road might be over rated. Thanks.
