    I'll swing the cat in Fairbanks and see what it sets its hooks into.

    It ain't so... my man. Dawson Forever!
    I'm afraid Calgary is busy enough with their own "Stampede"
    :eek1

    More info soon on the Dalton Thread. Fite

    From Dualin' Dalton sight.
    May be of interest to locals?




    As discussed previously on this thread we mentioned a visit to the infamous Turtle Club whilst we were in Fairbanks for the Dualin' Dalton Run.

    I'm thinkin' we ought to meet for dinner on Sunday night June 11th.
    This would make for a great opportunity to plan our assault on the Dalton, enjoy a fantastic meal, partake in a cool beverage, and bench race a bit.
    I realize a few of you had requested a Tuesday night gathering and that may happen also. I think Sunday would be better because of fewer miles traveled for most of us. Certainly smoother roads.

    Heli .... you are now officially in charge of reservations and seating arrangements for this momentous occassion.

    I say 6:00PM Sunday, June 11
    Who's in??????

    KATOOMER

    Turtle club: Check
    FEGC 6/11 & 13: Check
    Wiseman 6/12: Check


    btw, should we have a Trutlr Club re-dux on 6/13, or just have füd at FEGC since that'll be a long day coming from Wiseman/Atigun?

    Pretty good menu at the Camp; I've been eating there the last couple of days, doing some fixits and so on. KAFF has the cabin, and the bunkhouse is looking good for cheaper stays. There's a lower cabin that's available, too (Heidi's suggestion). I think it sleeps four. Rest assured that we won't be without beds there. GG/FM booked an upstairs room and they're nice, too. Pics to come tonight.

    Wiseman is locked in for the cabin (KAFF), lodge room #1 (FM & GG) and lodge room#2 (helikron and Fugawi)... the rest are camping there or Coldfoot?? Kodiak Contingent can speak up; Heidi at Boreal has welcomed us to pitch tents at the lodge and still have use of bathrooms, so that's available for nominal $ contribution. No guarantees against mosquitos, though.

    I'm getting out there this afternoon with more materials; I'll take some pics and post 'em for y'alls perusal.

    Still trying to collect swag for the Friday night feed in Dawson.
    Get it to FastLane at Hilti in Anchorage.

    ???? Is anyone planning on taking a chase/private vehicle to Dawson for this year's D2D? I/we need a way to transport giveaway stuff. Fite

    Excellent work Tog. Your swag looks/sounds packable enough.... so go ahead and drag it with you unless you need the space.

    I'd have MGriller haul it to Dawson but I saw his pack job and me thinks he's at the max already! :eek1 :eek1
    Just given you a little jab there MK...... your set-up looked sano to me.





    You're a lucky bastige being able to take a full year off and just travel!

    I have my reservation with Bombay Peggies and the gal told me that I guess this large group of international military laison's coordinated from Ottawa is there the same weekend. We should have an interesting mix of outlaws and inlaws. But, rooms are booking fast.
