Watch out for the dust. some of the big rigs kick up way more then you think and the road will disappear if there is no wind. One more thing, HAVE FUN!
Thanks for the update on the road conditions. I'm heading up there tomorrow (solo) but I don't plan on going much past Atigun Pass. I want to do some hiking and would love to climb up the snow-covered peak at the top of Atigun Pass. I'm bringing warm clothes, crampons and an ice axe in case I get to "play" on steep snowfields. When I rode to Deadhorse two years ago we encountered the freezing, horizontal sleet/ice crap that iced us up too. That wasn't fun at all.

Have a safe journey!
