The locals I've spoken with say its the nicest weather they've had in years and that it means good weather should follow. Any inmates from AK have a take on this?
And very very lucky you are! We had a cold Spring following our longest winter in recorded history, 232 days snowfall to snowfall.
In years past I've know riders who've come up in the rain, ridden around AK in the rain, and then gone home in the ever cold rain. Sad. Yep, good gear is important up here.
Continued good luck and have fun, Mark H.
