I just wanted to bump this thing. Colleen Hines (Rallymaster's wife) was in Boston over the weekend so we visited some. I sensed this might be the last summer event, so if this is on your bucket list...I sent my entry last night.

I think I'm going to ride my Yamaha WR250R. I want to try the full computer class this time so PM me if anybody knows where I can buy one.

Colleen says there are 15 motorcycles and some 15 cars signed up already so hopefully we'll have a good field. The website probably hasn't been updated in awhile.

The principal dirt sections are approximately as follows:
-Blackwater Road from Quesnel. Maybe 120 miles worth.
-Parts of the Cassiar and the Road to Telegraph Creek. Maybe 200 mi.
-Campbell Highway and the North Canol. 600 miles worth.
-Top-o-the World Highway. 200 miles or so.
-Haul Road to Arctic Circle and back. 400 miles I think.
-Denali Highway. 140 miles.

You'll need at least 170 miles fuel range (more is better). The fuel truck will be spotted to help us in the two areas that we'll need more gas. That will be the NWT bivouac and the Haul Road.

Here's to you Ned:
