Hi there. I am a rider from Hong Kong. I have long been admiring the beauties of Alaska all my life. This year, in the summer(late June to late Aug), I have finally got a chance to ride from the lower 48s to visit Alaska. This is possible because a very kind friend of mine in Nevada is generous enough to lend me one of his motorcycle so I can travel up north. Due to a shoestring budget for 2 months or so travel, I can see I may have some difficulties to face. Any advise from you will be much appreciated. My understand is travelling in Alaska during summer can be very expensive for a retired office worker like me. BTW, I have been riding for 48 years travelled through many countries especially in Asia. But I have very little knowledge about Alaska/Canada.
