    Your skin is about 93 degrees. If you allow 94+ degree air to blow over your skin, you're actually just heating yourself up. So I basically never wear a mesh jacket anymore, and instead a very good GoreTex jacket with vents as needed. PLUS, practice the wet sleeves evaporated cooling technique to cool my body down while riding. Check out the Iron Butt Assoc websites for quality scientific information on keeping cool during hot temps. You won't need a rainsuit with GoreTex gear. I've been very pleased with the Klim gear. And yes on synthetic wicking shorts and tees, thin fleece sweatshirt, and on the heated liner with a thermostat.

    I'm curious what the locals think of this summer invasion? Are we a pain in the a$$? A revenue stream? Someone clogging up the road?

    Yes, yes and probably yes. I read an interview with the Tuk Mayor who expressed a general concern about the inevitable increase in access to drugs and alcohol caused by the road now being open all year. What we are seeing is age old conundrum about trails, roads, rail, electricity, etc to rural communities. At some point all of us lived in Tuk. Ive reached out to the Mayor and invited him to post his concerns here.

    Is Tuk dry? I was hoping to open a Hard Rock Cafe when I get there just before D2D. Lol...Truth be told, I just may bring a little nipper for personal, low key consumption. Party will be in Dawson City.

    Dunno. However, I suggest being prepared for a little rain all the same. Therefore, I also shall be bring a wee bit of Lagavulin 16.
