I was scheduled to do this trip two years ago with Maxbet, CDCSlim and C14xTom. Two months before departure my wife was diagnosed with cancer, had surgery and started chemo. I dropped out of the trip to stay home and at that point I thought my chance to do this ride was over. Maxbet made the offer to go back to Alaska if I would wait until 2014 so I took him up on that offer. I was getting the feeling of being so close to accomplishing a goal that had been in my thoughts for so long when----------------my bike died, I tried more throttle-nothing. 218 miles and I was out of gas. That's some poor mileage. That's OK we were prepared, I used my spare gas and away we went. Ooopps, until Greg ran out 9 miles later, more spare gas and go. We had noticed the temperature drop as we got closer to the Bay.
