    Not sure right now. I guess I'll just show up at Carr's and see who else is there. That's usually the way it works anyway.

    My partner backed out at the last minute due to work. I had planned on leaving Wednesday mourning as well. I'd like to swing by and at least meet some of you guys and see what this is all about. I'll be staying at Eagle Claw the first night. This will be my first time to Dawson.

    Sure thing, come on along. Riding alone is fun at times but going with someone that has done it before is the only way to travel. I did the same thing my first year. Eagle Claw WILL be the place to be Wednesday night for sure. We usually gather around a site and grill up our favorite dead animal flesh (or whatever you want) on the fire. Some bring their own from home and others run into Tok and pick something out. You will meet many of the D2D ir "regulars" there.

    First time I went; didn't know what to expect, really didn't know where I was going, and rode alone. Found folks along the way and made new friends. :thumb :ricky

    Just to clarify..... As a Canadian, going to an event in Canada, I should bring US cash?

    Way to go James!! it was fun riding with you for sure. Now you need to sell one of your bikes and replace it with a more dirt friendly model....

    Dick, I had to be at work at 6 Monday morning. I didn't make it back to Anchorage until 1230 Sunday night. I wish I could've hung out longer. I had a blast
