    I'm in! I will be riding in from Asheville, NC. Plan on riding to the circle after that and then to Kenai and then back south. Only have six weeks for this trip so I plan on packing in as much fun as I can. By the way, what does Scotch sell for by the gallon in Dawson?!? :1drink

    Is there any other kind? I drink Glenmorangie and The Macallan. (Although I have been known to drink Chivas in survival situations!)

    Sounds like I need to be lookin' for you at the D2D. You just may be my new best friend! I have never tried Laphroaig. I have heard from some that it has a rather "medicine like" taste. You either love it or hate it, no in between. :wink:

    I have some 16 year old Lagavulin, 17 and 10 Ardbeg, Macallan, a couple Glenmorangie, Talisker, Highland Park and a few others. I don't think they'll all fit in my bags though. Sorry.

    Keep in mind that the assigned numbers don't mean squat ...... other than to give the D2D'08 CounterSteering Committee a rough idea of how many to expect. We wouldn't want this thing to get out of hand.

    You can pull my question mark! I'm there. :D I'd be riding now but the knee is not healed yet. Doc said it will be another month before I could ride (and that would be outside with no snow) sooo....

    Pencil me and my daughter in for D2D

    My daughter says she wants a t-shirt and a sour toe certificate to hang in her dorm room. So we plan on leaving Sweet Home Alabama on Saturday and rolling into Dawson Wednesday nite. That should give us time to rest up before the festivities begin.

    Can someone help us out on camping on the Alaska Highway and in Dawson? I'm not familiar with how the Canadian system works.:deal
