So, it occurs to me that it's time for me to go to AK on my bike. I've searched and have run into an enormous amount of content from guys planning trips to the region, on trips, back from trips, dreaming about trips... Is there one thread that you see as the "best" for me to start reading-up here? Yes, I have the 2020 Milepost. It's obvious one could spend hundreds of hours randomly reading. I've done plenty of touring (slab) in my more than 40 years of riding but have not gone to the NW USA, much less AK. Key question: I have one buddy who "says" he will go (June 2021) but he's the type who is prone to flaking though I've told him once we're 6 mos away, he cannot ditch. I want to make this trip with 1-3 fellow travelers. Question is...do you ever find guys here or is there a group who are interested in connecting for this ride? Yeah, there's most definitely some vetting required to be sure there's compatibility in a number of areas, but I'm wondering. It'd be cool to match-up with another rider or two "strangers" and make the trip after getting acquainted (very important, of course). Thanks!
