    Somebody on this forum somewhere is the not the real Sober Aunt. I just tried to get my wife her screen name and it was already taken. So even though she is The Sober Aunt on the D2D sign up, her new screen name is RealSoberAunt.

    We are very excited as this will be her first D2D and first long gravel run. She is nervous, but don't let her fool you, she is a pretty good rider for only getting her license two years ago.

    J&K Sounds like a plan. Right now we are looking at Anchorage to Tok on Wed and then Tok into Dawson on Thur. Pretty sure we have a room at the JJJ. If not will have the big tent just in case.

    Those of us that provide the services youll enjoy like to get a bit of an idea of the number of folks we need to accommodate.


    Dont question the means on which it happens. Come, participate, enjoy. No need to pick it apart.
