    The only options we got were the heated grips, center stand, and dash computer for info. Told them to leave off all the other electronic stuff.

    We are leaving 8 June and trucking out to Great Falls Montana...ride from there all over the place with Deadhorse at the top. Hope we can hook up. Please keep in touch...will be fun :thumb

    We will probably miss D2D by a couple of days this time. My friends from over seas can't be here soon enough I think. We won't leave Great Falls Montana until the 11th and don't want to have to haul ass to get to Dawson by the 15th.

    Tim,

    I have appreciated you travel logs. They are presented in an captivating mix of music, voice and written commentary. Your humor does get us through the dry spots. :lol3

    I am anxiously waiting for episode 8. I read through this entire thread just to see where it was.

    Thank you Mark. The last episode of the series will be a long one...over an hour. I'm trying to get it done in a few days.

    I am leaving Spokane on June 4th heading to Radium Hot Springs. I am staying at the Triple J for the D2D. My first. However, I leave Florida on I-10 for San Diego on May 17th. From there I go to Oregon before landing in Spokane. I am trailering my DL650 to Spokane where I will park car and trailer.

    Got Episode 8 edited. It's a 10gb monster and almost an hour long. I'll try to get it uploaded the first of the week.

    Haha it's done and dusted! I'll start the upload tomorrow. I've had my ups and downs when it came to the final episode. Some days I just couldn't get it together and put it to the side. But all is good. Hope everyone likes the ending. Cheers.

    :lol3 No rush Tewster2. I know that you are retired and enjoying every minute of it and I am sure the final cut will be very enjoyable. Just like the rest of your clips. :thumb

    Anxiously awaiting episode 8! I've got a bunch of vacation time piled up. Now I have to convince my employer to give me four weeks off in a row next summer. I am going to wait to ask until after my annual review and wage raise(I hope)......lol I'm not one for much planning. Having watched all your videos, I think that makes me prepared to ride to Alaska? Don't mind camping, actually welcome it. Hopefully I will be able to find lodging if necessary, don't plan on making any reservations ahead of time? I'm sure a shower and a bed will be welcome after a few days on the road catching mosquitoes.

    Thanks for the diligence in editing. For I know it takes much longer than taking the video and pictures.
