    I read just this morning that there was no gas there at the dempster and Klondike. Said the closest gas was in Dawson........25 miles could mean a lot to me on my little bike this trip!

    There have been some people life flighted off of the Tuk road this year already. Be careful parts of that road are really really soft.

    It has been raining on The Dempster in spots for the last two days. It is raining at Eagle Plains as I type. Supposed to rain tomorrow from about 4:00 AM until about 10:00 AM. I will let you know how that works out.

    How is the road condition? Like a gravel road or more like a dirt road with some gravel?

    Is gas in Eagle Plaines, Ft McPherson, Inuvik all manned stations or just card reader?

    I'm going on the Dempster in 3 weeks 7/10-7/14. Hauling the bikes to Dawson City.
