    Because our D2D... Anchorage to Dawson ... Over the Top site is becoming extremely large, I would like to present this sub-thread as a priority read for essential information dealing with D2D '06. :deal

    First order of bidness:
    This little gathering started 14 years ago as a way to celebrate the Summer Solstice in a great location, with good people, and have an excellent ride to and from. Much of the history of this event has been well documented in the original Over the Top/Anchorage to Dawson thread.
    This event has always been (and hopefully will always be) a no charge gathering of ADV riders as opposed to a pay to play "rally"
    Word is out as we continue to attract more and more riders each year.
    Many lower 48 riders actually plan their Alaskan treks around this event.
    Our host.. the world famous Dick of Dawson, will once again be putting on an excellent dinner for Friday night June 16. Last year's cost.. $25.00 CND
    What I would like to do is start getting a rough head count of people who are planning to attend D2D '06 and of those who will be attending the Friday night dinner.
    This will allow Dick to stock up on groceries.
    I am particularly curious as to the number of lower 48 riders.
    If you know people who are going to attend but do not tune in on-line.... please include them. Fite

    So....drum roll please...

    Would love to be there, but we aren't starting our tirp till the 19th, and won't be in the area untill the 25th maybe?? But if you see 8 or 9 guys on GSs with lic plats from all over the lower 48, that's us. A Wave will work.

    I am quite confident that 14 through 17 will be:

    14) MooseKiller
    15) KodiakFrank
    16) Special T
    17) Jack (?)

    However, I will defer to 15, 16, and 17 for a firm yes... (Can't see why they'd say no unless they are anti-social somehow...)

    I'll be the Catch 22. Count me in for dinner too. The knee makes good progress and I hope to be riding short rides by mid May and should be ready for the D2D on schedule.
