    Having been to Alaska via B.C, it's always nice to see and read about the trip from someone else's perspective. Thanks for taking us along.

    Great Trip!

    Great report. What an adventure. First mega ride and you handled it like a champ. I can't wait to take my first ride like that next summer. Hoping to do something a little similar but on my KLR.

    I know you just got back but are you going to WetFest this weekend?? Its just southwest of you outside of Kelso/Longview on Hwy 4. Its in the annual rallies forum.if you're interested. I'd love to hear some stories over some beers and whiskey

    Glad the trip went over without a hitch! Makes me itchin for next summer for sure
