    I have searched and cannot find dates for 2020 D2D. Is there a link or am I too early? I see that the BMW national rally is late June in Great Falls, Montana, and I plan on living on the motorcycle this summer so I thought I might combine the two.

    My last D2D was in 2010 so it is time to do another. Thanks

    I thought D2D always coincided with the Summer Solstice, so the dates are set every year by alignment of the stars..........or moon..........or sun.........or ???? Correct??
    I hope to see you there in 2020........my first!!! That's probably why Fite will be absent....... :fitz

    Summer Solstice occurs on June 20 in 2020...…..so, D2D is right on schedule!!

    I am confirming with higher HQ, but believe the dates were moved because of a conflict with the BMWMOA rally. The sign-up thread will provide the definitive, absolute and unequivocal answer... for the time being.

    :nah Nope, you gotta do better than that. Originally, for a couple years or so, there was a fairly good reason for that list.
    But now ...:dhorse
    You'll just be spending time making corrections, complaining & :dirtdog & :muliewhen people screw it up. :lol3

    I am thinking of D2D and then back to Montana for the BMW Rally. I have never been to one (other things keep getting in the way) but friends in Anchorage want to do things in July. Have an 08 GSA that has been to Alaska three times and wants to go again.

    One, some? might notice that the 21st, solstice, moves relative to how days of the week sort out every year! D2D is held on a Thur/Friday schedule and attempt to keep it about the same time of the month, the third week in June. Would we like it the 11/12th or the 25/26th, I think not. That's why we have big thinkers keeping all this in order and why Khuddy had to go up the food chain for clarifications as do I, we are but servants, please be kind and considerate! We are old and fragile, oh, and very sensitive! You dumb f---s!

    Thank you Dick. I’m hoping to be able to reduce my dosage of Atavan in a bit if people will just be nice to me. Tom S in particular is oh so hurtful and obviously off his meds and in need of an enema.

    Must be on vet medical as no one can afford the amount of meds he requires, not even in commie Canada!

    So, if there is a group going from D2D down to the BMW Rally in Great Falls, Mt., I would be interested in joining. Am thinking about 500 miles per day but in SE Asia at present and don't have mileage tables.

    Its 2,070 miles from Dawson to Great Falls taking the direct route: Dawson to Whitehorse via Klondike hwy, Whitehorse to Dawson Creek via Alaska Hwy, then to Edmonton, Calgary and south to Great Falls.

    Interesting that some so called gruvers are choosing to attend a F----ng RALLY in the dumb ass lower 48 instead of an avowed NON RALLY of their making. Human behaviour is way too crazy for me to understand! Man, I sure would like to attend a RALLY with line ups and huge crowds and look at all the new irrelevant shit on the market being shlocked by professional hucksters!
