    Signed up, am available to "Help" as needed. Let me know. Thanks for organizing this event, I know how much work it is, how much time it takes, how much fun it is and how rewarding it can be. Thanks again.

    I'll be turning 50 in June so will be hitting my last two states for all 50 states travelled ... will spend my birthday at Prudhoe Bay. Also looking forward to my first D2D; 25th Anniversary at that.

    Got permission from work to take 17 days off, wife said ok, booked a room in Dawson and ordered 2 new tires ... can't wait till June! I will be leaving from Manitoba on 10 June.

    I've been dreaming for years to ride up to AK. It was either going to be the D2D or the Alcan 5000. The dates probably won't line up for me for the Alcan 5000 in 2018 so I figured there's no time like the present!

    I did a short 5 day camping trip through the rockies last summer just to test out my latest camping gear (there's almost 1/2 a panier of stuff I never even pulled out!).

    Just ran onto this photo taken in 1992.
    25 years ago this June.
    Ca$h Register is 3rd from the left with his arm around Jim Coleman.
    I'm missing both of them.

    What?! I’m surprised that the guy that did such a great job as the announcer at the Fur Rondy GPs & the very entertaining, non-bloviating, ‘Master of Ceremonies’ at the dinner banquets afterwards would have to look up that word. How can this be?
    Perhaps too many of these so called “Counter Steering Committee” meetings has somehow clouded your mind. :(:

    Glad you're doing this, Kevin. Its almost a full time job looking after the non-comprehending posters. #34 looks odd too.
