    In Fort Nelson BC watching some fool walk across Niagara Falls on a wire. And they said driving to Dawson was crazy. Dawson in 2 days, heading to Inuvik and hope to be back in Dawson for the 21

    On the road again; just crossed the border at Coutts and are holed up in a seedy motel in the shadow of the border crossing. MsBehave is almost back to being herself, and gutted out the ride from Billings. See y'all in Dawson.!

    Anybody got tent space open still? The hotel room I was hoping for (long story) didn't pan out.

    We cancelled a room yesterday at the Fifth Avenue B&B. Looked like a nice place.

    Hey all,

    Been incommunicado for a while, but think about you crazy bastards on the daily. Hope this D2D is one to remember, and as pops would say, "ride fast, take chances, and safety third!" :freaky

    My riding partner had to back out. I hear there are a lot of folks leaving Anchorage Wednesday morning. Wondering if I might tag along and where to meet up.

    Our group will be leaving Palmer Carrs around 10am for a leisurely trip to Tok. We plan on taking the old Tok cutoff like we did last year (a cool side trip, thanks Jack!). You are welcome to jump in.

    We'll be departing later than expected due to a snafu with Jr's passport (don't ask). :baldy

    FEDEX "should" deliver to the Wasilla office by 12-1pm on Wed but we are in Alaska so I'm not expecting anything.

    AlaskaJeff will be leaving with us, Mud, so carry on smartly and we'll catch up in Tok. Please let Golden Bear know we're still coming.

    Marbee, Lunch Lady, Jr, and Zeek, respectively.

    we are leaving today from Eagle River via the Denali Hwy. Looks to be a great week to ride. Hope to see some of you all on the road, at the very least we will see you at Dawson. 2 KLRs and a Yamaha FZ6 with a green Ram support vehicle and trailer.:freaky

    One of our group bailed on the trip (rebuild not going as fast as anticipated). Booking .com won't allow his room cancellation without a charge so if anyone is hurting for a place to stay there is a room available. Its at the Aurora inn. Havent stayed there before so can't vouch for it. Room is 169/night canadian. PM me if you are interested and we can figure out how to handle the details.
