    Yikes, I'll be running a pretty shredded front Battle-Wing and a decent Tourance. I hope it'll be dry on the way back from Dawson, but either way it'll be better than riding a Maxim in the rain on the TOW!

    Wife and I will not be going to D2D this year :cry :cry

    I have reservations at the Downtown Hotel which I will be canceling today.
    Its a great place to stay and right in the midst of the action. I thought the
    rates were reasonable.

    So if you wanted to stay there and couldn't because they were booked up,
    call 'em now and get on the wait list.

    Spent the past week at the homeplace in Slana. Thursday the gray sky dropped way down and poured rain, with the temperature in the valley down to 41°. When the clouds lifted Friday afternoon there was snow down to the 3000' level on nearby ridges. Remember last year? :eek1

    Like we tell visitors - be prepared for anything, 'cause you'll probably see it.

    Ah! I remember being pelted by pea-sized hail while going through Slana. Wise words my friend.

    A couple staying on campus the past two days just came across from Dawson and said it was in great shape. She said they were running 55 MPH.

    We stopped in chicken on Saturday and Susan said that this years D2D tee's were lost by the shipper. It's a bummer, but she still had a few of last year's model for $5 each. (the white shirt with BM roundel with "D2D Trek")
