    Tom made one appearance and we have not seen his sorry ass since! He does know how to not sign up or show up and we all miss him so! There is some rumblings that this may be the last big gathering!

    Just sayin!

    Lots of tent space depending on how close you want to be right in town. Inquire with Gold Rush campground, even when they are full, they make room for single tent spaces. Big friends of D2D. Free 24/7 ferry ride across the river to territory campground and lots of space just coming into town before the Klondike River bridge, minutes from downtown.

The discounted rate based on single occupancy is $124.00 CDN per room, per night plus GST and double occupancy is $134.00 CDN per room, per night, plus GST.

    If anyone is interested please PM me and I will work with the hotel to put your name on one, you can then contact the hotel to guaranty the room.

    I just signed up. I'm so looking forward to my first D2D event. My buddy and I will be rolling in on the 19th. Amazingly, we were able to get a room at the Triple J. How is this place? Any quirks we should know about?

    My only complaint is that the waitstaff breakfast seem to be a quite slow. Other than that I’ve enjoyed staying there.

    The Yukon has a fair skill employment policy and so even slow people are given an equal opportunity and really, some of their customers just need to slow down and enjoy the moment, I am a little anal and have the same complaint but then again when I look at myself, I go wa da fuck!

    For me, D2D is about getting away from being uptight and in a hurry! Love the breakfast fare at the JJJ, staff is friendly, coffee is hot and the conversation is good. It's a nice spot to start the day :dukegirl.

    This just in.
    RLee will be driving up to D2D this year and will be dragging my rescue trailer. He will be using Big John’s truck,
    At the present time he will be by himself.
    If anyone out there needs a lift let me know.
    One thought I had is that if you are on a bike and don’t care to ride double this might just be your ticket. Maybe have your pillion hook up with RLee in Tok and come on in to Dawson with him.
    He will be departing Anchorage most likely on Tuesday. Tuesday night in Tok.
    Talk to me,

    Heading south out of Seattle for Dawson City, I think you need to turn your gps on! Shit if I know, it has been hot up here, maybe the poles have shifted, we a little sleepy in Dawson.
