    Finally found this site:

    Going to venture out into the world and go to the D2D this year. Would have gone last year, but went to sisters in Soldotna on the 4th of July, and didn't have enough time off from work to cover.

    When is the D2D? I see 24 and 25, and I see 25 and 26...eh

    Going to take the little yellow 02' DR and let it stretch its legs a bit.

    Awesome!!

    I will plan on the 25th and 26th being the official days, and so will take the 24th and 27th off from work also so that I can cruise slowly too and from the event. Planning on crashing at the Provincial Park on the west side of the Yukon. Need to remember to bring something to light the fire.

    If I beg will you edit the title of this thread to the correct date? I've looked at my damned calender a half dozen times now trying to re-figure out when we're going and I can't be the only dork in this crowd. :lol3

    I'm planning for Inuvik after D2D. Just made reservations at the Goldrush Campground from the 24th - 27th. Would like to head for Inuvik on the 28th.

    I will most likely be doing Inuvik the days leading up to this... after all, I only have 3 months for my trip and there is so much to see! :D

    My plan is to be in Inuvik 23/23 and then drive back down to Dawson on the 24th... my campground reservations are for 24/25/26... I'll take off towards FB the 27th.

    Not to divert too much from the 2009 gathering, ...but, would it be safe to assume that NEXT years (2010) D2D dates would be again the Thursday and Friday following June 21st, 2010 ?

    June 21st in 2010 is a Monday.

    (And don't give me any crap about talking already 2010, ...I CAN'T GO THIS YEAR :becca)

    Not being part of the official counter steering committee, but I would have to assume that next yrs D2D, 2010, will revert back to the original solstice date. We could have gone back there this year as the dumb ass premiers gathering changed their date but too late as the train had left the station.

    Thanx for the feed back :thumb. So, besides the annual Summer Solstice Festivities, the ADV gathering prior 2009 has been pretty much on June 21st as well...

    We're already trying to coordinate schedules of a couple of people, who need to put in for vaction time REALLY EARLY ...

    Sorry guys, but I'm confused. Are the D2D dates June 24/25 or 25/26?
