Tom Bombay Tour to ALASKA
 
Three inmates will be leaving York, PA May 26 on a four week trip to Alaska. This will be primarily a picture thread. A more involved write up may be done after we return.

Extra Space

Pssst... The Alaska thread isn't where your ride report goes.

Your ride report goes in the ride reports section.

Ah guys
 
It looks like you got enough stuff for a squad. Who wrote the TA? Do you really need all that? Canada and Alaska are civilized. Gas is available, lighter is safer, especially on bad roads.

Enjoy the Ride

^This. You can likely ditch the gas cans. That concours and vstrom should have no issues traveling up and through here. Are you planning to run the Haul Road or the Dempster? If so I'll let the "veterans" chime in.
I just came back from a Haines-Skagway-Whitehorse trip and there are quite a bit of frost heaves and can make it bumpy so be aware.
Other then that you guys have a safe run and looking forward to some pics. :freaky

Good luck guys! I'll be following along.

I see alot of crap being dumped or sent home along the way. I see it every year and guys send stuff home from my shop all the time. you will figure it out by the time you guys get here or sooner.

RefJeff 05-26-2012 03:39 PM
