    Have had several folks call me asking a few questions about the Dalton this year. This list will cover a lot of the questions. Please add to the list if any of you guys and girls have more stuff that would he helpful to those that are planning their first trip to the north. Thanks.

    There is already a thread that is the perfect place for your list, and it is a sticky and won't get shuffled to the bottom of the forum.......

    I agree with most of your list. Perhaps it was an attempt to be humorous but medical air evacuations do not require you to pay CASH. Not many riders carry 20k cash!!
    Secondly, truck traffic is on the up-tick with new exploration activity.

    Yep they don’t demand cash....but hopefully the statement gets across to riders that doing stupid stuff on the Dalton can be expensive. And yes again when the list was written the truck traffic was very low.
