    Hey guys,
    I'm coming up that way (Elmendorf AFB) on the 7th. I will be in town until the 18th then I fly out again. I won't have a bike because I am flying up with my unit but would like to meet up with some fellow ADV'rs for some drink if possible. :freaky

    Let me know.

    I can vouch that Nick's a cool guy. :thumb

    Of course, none of you know me from Adam, so that might be the world's most useless recommendation. :D

    Oops, sorry I missed this for the 7th. You gonna be back thru Anchorage on your way out? Please let us know.

    You know we broke an all time heat record for the 7th, right? 80f, new record by 1 degree! :D

    Hope you enjoy your time up here.

    Have fun, Mark H.

    :wave I am stuck in Atlanta... but my fiance Nick is there today. I'm really not sure what his schedule is like, but he's in AK for two weeks. Lucky dog! :D I'll relay your pm to him, and maybe y'all can meet up someway/somehow, or at least tell him the not-to-miss spots. :thumb He's already planning a trip back -- with ME of course. :lol3

    I got an interesting phone call about the hotel he's at not having A/C. :razor

    :wave

    Probably. His profile says "Crew Chief on a UC-35, the military version of a Cessna Citation.

    :wave Hey guys- :nod That'd be his ride.

    He's on the trip to take care of the plane, but everytime I hear from him he's having lunch here, drinking a beer there, etc, etc. :D Nice business trip!

    He's absolutely hating not having his bike up there for this trip; but, I don't think it would fit in the "lawndart's" door. :rofl I hear the scenery is just awesome.

    I believe he and his unit are based out of Elmendorf for the two weeks, and they're doing day trips here and there.

    If any of you catch him drooling on Sarah Palin somewhere, could ya peel him off for me? :lol3

    Hey Mark,
    I am actually stationed at Elmendorf until the 16th.

    I have limited access to the internet but hit me up and maybe we can meet for some beers or food.

    Roger-wilco. :thumb But ONLY because he's your fiance'.

    After all, turnabout's only fair play seeing how you've endured so many years of inmates "drooling" over you and your catchy helmet photo! :wink: :brow

    I'm on my way up north to Copper Cntr today with a couple other adv'ers. Then we're riding through Chitina to McCarthy and Kennicott tomorrow and then into Valdez Sunday. Fun! Back on Monday.

    Hope to see you, Mark H.

    I met up with Nick at the Air Station, while the maintenance bubbas tried to figure out how to move the fuel truck (air brakes locked up) from behind Nick's plane...:lol3

    They finally towed it with a Herc tug until the chains broke. I hear them taxiing out right now.

    Well, I take back the "dead to me" part but the sasquach statement still rings true in my heart!:deal

    Oh, and the "sucks" part too...

    Nick and crew are gonna try to come back to the rock for dinner some time this week. If so we should try to wrangle up the local riff-raff for a meet (meat) and greet.:deal :ear

    And if Spicy says he'll be there, don't hold your breath.:lol3
