Heading for Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada or: a QC check of the Canadian hospital system how to trash a perfectly good motorcycle how to save $200 by sleeping in hotel laundry rooms My riding buddy Polar Cruiser and I met up at a local shopping center parking lot Saturday morning for a ride to Homer, Alaska with the Northern Riders club. There was a communication problem prior to that ride though and ride critical emails had apparently been scooped up by some spam software (long story) and nobody else showed for the ride. There was a sense of obligation to at least see if anyone would show as we are the two nutbars that put the ride schedule together for that club. Ok, PC is the nutbar really but we wont go there. On the spot we decided to head the other direction and run Over the Top on the Taylor Highway to Dawson City. Wed both been considering it for a while and there was nothing standing in the way. Executive decision made. Waaaay too much adventure to be packed into a three day weekend but we didnt know it as neither of us had been to Dawson City before. At about 10:00a we headed out. Grabbed some fuel on the way out of Anchorage and the next stop was Palmer for a late breakfast, about 40 miles north of town. PC picked the breakfast joint and within minutes we had a waitress coughing and hacking at our table, explaining how shed just been diagnosed with asthma to compliment the bronchitis and terrible sinus infection she already had *hack, hack*. Next time Im picking, bud. I was pretty sure wed be leaving w/ a souvenir dose of some nasty respiratory infection as her little gift to us. We took too long to get out of there. Ready for some pics?
