    Thanks for resurrecting this original thread Dapman and in your continued interest Kevin in trying to "understand" it. Good luck! :poser

    What started with a trickle has now become a raging torrent of enthusiasm in the D2D and the Adventure Riding lifestyle. If the OTT Hop thread encouraged that enthusiasm and provided a forum for the exchange of ideas, plans, trip reports and advance trip planning for the coming season, I say GREAT!...that's exactly what was intended.

    The other reason I was glad to see this thread come back was so I could tell just how much damn fun I had!:poser :poser

    Don't take the bait Griz!!! Don't do it! :poser :poser If you look closely at the opening messages of the thread, the thread was "born" in JO MAMA and Fish the moderator moved it into the GWN forum after a short time in "ride reports". This was way before there was an "Alaska" region. Remember back then me and others were so new to the site that we didn't even know where to post! Or where the D2D should belong. Fish moved it to "ride reports" and then finally to the GWN and due to it's popularity, we eventually achieved our own regional status as "Alaska". Great memories.:ricky

    Paul, look at the "born on" dates......:deal :lol3 The "joined" dates under our avatars! I joined in this lunacy in November 2002 with my first post as the OTT Hop. Hacky, Legion and others were not far behind. Actually, Hacky's reply to my first post resulted in our "joined" dates of November 2002.

    I'm obviously way past my "shelf life".......:poser ........and based on the number of posts I have, you can see that I prefer reading all the other inmates posts rather than posting myself.

    I just had to jump in here on this thread because it is what sustained me through 19 long months in the "sandbox". That, along with your kindness and wonderful care packages.

    I'm thankful to all you ADVers who tuned in and are now sharing in the larger Alaska ADV community chat and annual epic rides like the D2D.

    V/r,
    Katoomer
