    Same here......98 percent sure my Alaska trip is a washout for this year. I have things already lined up for 2021.....so my target date for Alaska will be 2022. But all is not lost because I have an 8 week mega out west trip lined up!

    Yeah - trying to look on the bright side. I was planning an Iron Butt Association Ultimate Coast to Coast, but had the SMCA 4 corners tour as a backup (which is now also not putting on rides). I attempted the UCC in 2018 and didn't make it; so this has been ~3 years in the planning :(

    Yup, heard rumors yesterday. I guess that neither of the beasts will get ridden very far this summer even though I've finished getting the second one fully prepped for a long adventure just a couple days ago

    Hopefully I'll still be in shape to do this next summer.

    Be safe and stay healthy y'all!

    The Olympic peninsula is a “biggie” on my bucket list. I’ve never been to Olympic National Parl......and I am most defiantly looking forward to the trip!!

    2 week quarentine or current Covid test to enter AK now. I guess the hotel employees will report anyone leaving their room even yet locals are running about as if everything was normal.

    I'm trying to head to Alaska next Month and wanted to see if Canada was allowing travel, especially from Haines across the Yukon back into Alaska. I've call the Border and they Said no 'Non Emergency Travel', however this seemed like a blanket response and I've heard of others who have crossed there. Does anyone know for sure what the situation is? Thanks, Dylan
