    Hey MM! Just had to bump the thread that started all this chatter in the GWN. :clap Of course credit goes to Fighter and Co. for starting the best rally in world....the D2D rally! :norton The Dust to Dawson ride has grown steadily over the last 15 years. I have to admit I feel a sentimental attachment to this thread....it's gained a lot of traction over the last few years and spawned a lot of great chatter in GWN. Its brought new friends and riders from all walks of life from many states and countries together to share the Alaskan/Canadian ADV Rider dream.

    As originator of the thread I know it's a selfish plug......but hey!......I reeled all of you in now didn't I?:wink: :wink:

    Great move TR....this baby has had some serious hits.
    I plan on hopping over to Eagle for the first night....will miss the International shooting match (from US to Canada) but it will be nice to visit with some friends there and see how the building I put up there is handeling the tourists and winters.

    Thanks TR, look at the "born on" dates of our misfit crowd....this thread reeled in a bunch of em. I think Legion holds the record for the most posts (per/sec).....he lives on ADV :rofl

    All of us have shared, and will continue to share memories, ride reports, stories, BBQs gatherings, movies and all manner of happy (and sometimes sad) times in our lives on these pages. Keep em coming! It makes me feel "connected" half a world (and centuries) away.:D

    AKBeemer, this is the original D2D thread that our freind Larmo started many moon ago... the one and original, way back before Alaska had it's own thread and we were lumped in with our Canadian friends. This thread rocketed D2D from a small gathering of 20ish-30ish riders to the level it is today.:clap Way to go Katoomer!

    Bottom Line AKBMR

    This thread IS the reason that ADVers in the Great Land have our own region.
    I know it's a long one .... but one that is overflowing with history.
    Thanks for bumping it up near the top where it should be.

    OK, I just figured that a thread with as many posts as this one, and devoted to such an important topic, merited a rebirth every now and again.
