    Snow on deck ???:roflOnly snow these days is from the Cottonwoods.:wink:

    Eh....met a Kiwi on the road.:wink: Well right at the junction where it turns to shingles, had to stop and investigate why the gravel was wet. A little taste and :puke1 Calcium Chloride.:eek1

    He was coming the other way and had heard of you guys.:wink: I don't think he spends too much time on here so wasn't up to the latest news. I think he will now. Talking food again.......I sent him for Poutine in Revelstoke.:D A little treat for him after all he had some of the right stickers on his bags....in Canadian French.:1drink

    That's for the other Kiwis on the road to Alaska.....say Hi to Clint,:wave heading to Inuvik and Alaska.:clap

    Arh that would be Barb (and Victor) from Alaska Leather, very very cool people and made the start of our trip a great experience. :clap

    They lent us their shed to do the bike work ... with a heated floor :eek1 ... that more than we have in our house :rofl

    But the month would be 10 days ...... close enough I spose :D, on the 10th day we were there we rode to Homer for a break from setting up having done everything fitting up and fitting out the bikes.
