Sounds like a good caravan after D2D. I am planning on the Dempster after myself. I have three or four more bikes possilble coming with me, SoloKLR and maybe Likeitloud from Idaho and Scottinmissouri and Brian from MO. Likeitloud is riding a VX800 he adventurized. Has a thread in some assembly required on it.

I was thinking the same exact thing, to go after the D2D. I first wanted to go as far as the Circle then a friend told me why stop there... I didn't really have an answer. I might just still go as far as the circle and then explore the gold fields..

Riding the Dalton this June.
We don't have time to consider much else.
Two week vacation, max..
We've thought about flying both ways and renting, flying one way and shipping, best for us was just to ride our butt's off..
We can't go that far and not ride the Dalton..

If time is an issue, your could ride the Dempster in less time than you could get to the Dalton. Plus it is a prettier ride.

If everyone's heading up the Dempster after attending D2D, what's the lodging availability in Fort McPherson and Inuvik and points between. Campsites?

Eagle Creek and Inuvik for "lodging". Lots of camping sites to share with the two passenger mosquitos.

We are pretty set in thinking we "have" to ride to Deadhorse.. However, common sense would say ride the Dempster. I'm going to go up again, but it won't be for several years, and probably won't have a bike with me.

Well, if you "have" to, but having done both I'd say you are missing out. There is no comparison in scenic beauty.

The Dalton is about 50% bad asphalt and a great percentage of the rest is under construction to become new asphalt. It seems they can get free "Federal" money for paving but not for maintenance. Eventually it will be all bad asphalt.
