Wicked Planning A Weekend Ride???

Saw a bunch of motorcycles in Glennallen today. Talked to these three riders in front of the Caribou Restaurant

Two were from White Salmon, WA and one from Portland, OR. Next stop - Paxson and points north. Weather permitting. And from the looks of the clouds in every northern quadrant, it might not permit. Wouldn't surprise me to see those same bikes parked in front of the hotel tonight.

Anyone seen this weather advisory for the weekend? Weather Advisory

Might want to postpone "Spring" rides until... oh... say, July?

And now... off to winter wonderland in beautiful downtown Slana.

Tripod still standing on the river at Nenana. Plenty cool and wet on the arm tonight. 36 F in Girdwood, maybe some snow again tonight. What a change from last week. Reminds me of TdF in the middle of summer 2011.

Hey, Steve, sweet Moto Guzzi. single cylinder, it looks like. there is a guy in Fairbanks they call Hook, because he is missing one hand, who rides an old Harley flathead with ski outriggers. And he rides it all winter. We met due to unfortunate circumstances, which is how I meet many people.

Looks like we might ride to D2D in some proximity, according to Butch. I look forward to it.

The Force

The Force is strong with this winter.

Fairbanks

Today:
Rain or mixed rain and snow developing in the morning...
Becoming all snow by evening. Snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches.
Heaviest amounts above 1500 feet. Highs in the lower to mid 40s.
West winds to 15 mph with gusts to 25 mph developing by late morning.

Tonight: Snow likely. Snow accumulation 1 to 3 inches. Heaviest amounts
above 1500 feet. Lows in the mid 20s. West winds to 15 mph with gusts

We usually put a boat in the water at Big Lake on Memorial Day Weekend but the ice thickness report
says 21.5 inches of solid ice there. Maybe sometime in June?

Great pic of the Guzzi.

Well, we made it. I didn't realize that we met 'Alcan Rider' or I would have bought you lunch. It was a good day of riding. Set out from Anchorage, hit Glennallen, slipped through Thompson Pass into Valdez (one lane was clear) and then scooted past 11 moose and a couple herds of caribou to hit the hay in Delta. Gotta love that much riding light. Some of the pictures are at: https://www.facebook.com/CBNorthwest/photos_stream
