    I'll be there late Monday night, staying until April 15th if anyone wants to get together (staying in Palmer but will be making frequent trips to Anchorage). I won't have a bike with me but I'm happy to ride a loaner if any one is feeling generous.:lol3

    Eklutna: This afternoon 25* Clear and Sunny

    I guess it's a little to early for a ice cream


    [​IMG]


    For the most part the road is fairly clear BUT


    [​IMG]

    There is a lot of ice, black ice, and glaciation happening on the road

    Plus there is just tons of sand in that eight mile stretch that would make it very unsettling if you didn't watch your speed

    But it was a great day :evil

    Awesome photo! I like your winter riding style. :clap My main passion in winter is "riding" boards - but they are skinny skis compared to your wide board. Spring skiing has been incredible, almost warm enough to wear shorts and tank top.

    We didn't want to go home, so we stopped to "smell the roses" and soak up some much appreciated sunshine. Snoring was optional. :lol3

    Two-wheel riding season isn't far off, but we sure hope to get some more fantastic backcountry ski (touring) trips in! :D

    Didn't recognize the man personally, but I did see someone riding down Airport Way in Fairbanks earlier today on a BMW GS.

    Did get to watch a bunch of these guys today (this pic is from the limited last weekend)

    Nenana River ice is thick and polished! Lots of fun boondocking and drifting out there.
