    They don't have showers......but......will fire up the sauna for you. The owners are VERY nice people.:deal It's a good place to get drunk and loud without bothering anyone. :freaky

    Now if drunk and loud people bother you...................:huh:rofl

    Thanks, great info. I'm just going to show and see which one of these places has space so my bike can get a soft piece of grass to park on.

    Who is taking a car or truck? I have tires for a traveler and the swag for door prizes. May throw in a couple extra emergency tires too. Thanks, Barb

    I'm in Dawson City now and talked with Pat at Gold Rush and he only has 5 tent sites and 4 of them are booked. He will allow two people to share a regular RV site at $31.50($16.75 each) but advised that you had better get a reservation in soon. All the sites are gravelly. Dick at the Downtowner says he's about booked for the weekend.

    MAN, I just got the most depressing news.
    I made reservations last year right after D2D and promised Liege and Pam that they could have mine this year.

    Kate's didn't have them! :huh

    I sent 15 emails total, and called at least 20 times.:brow
    Answer? They had email issues this winter, and lost many phone messages due to power troubles. That sucks for my friend. Sorry. :(:

    Ain't no problem at all, bud ! I snagged your room... you just didn't know about it ! :evil

    Think of me sort of like those hairballs that were showing up at your garage sale and taking stuff they didn't pay for... you just didn't know what it was or where they put it. They were in sneaky ninja mode and that solved two problems in one deal.

    1) They were rewarded in the fashion that they felt they so richly deserved.

    2) They didn't get tossed around by the big dude on the porch that was givin' 'em the stink eye.

    There you have it. I've got your room and it's at Kate's. All is well, my friend ! Back to smilin'. :lol3

    It looks like i'm in too. I'll have to ride hard to make it and i'll know more tonight after I dive into more mapping questions. Are all of the rooms in the town booked?

    Plan on tenting it if you can but I've actually never known anybody to be sleeping out when they didn't want to.

    About time you got on board, bud. :thumb

    In case anybody's wondering, AKpc was the nutbar that I rode to Dawson with a few years ago on a waaay too eventful ride. He got into a little quick jiujitsu with his LT in some crap weather in the middle of nowhere and BOOM ...the adventure started.

    Here's a link to that ride.

    If he is I think I'll bring along a few square yards of that 'new skin' stuff the bowlers use for when their fingers get raw. :lol3 Just in case.
