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!
I don't mean to Hi-jack this thread.. but be careful for the wet slides! They were cleaning off the road with a front end loader on my way up. Apparently it covered half the road when it slid.
