Its mixed emotions after you have prepared for it. I just burned 20 days of use/lose vacation only to find out I could have gone to Spain with here the day I was supposed to deploy. Atleast Allianz travel insurance is good people. They refunded my airline ticket without any hassle. Other reason can't go to Spain with her.

But, I get lots more riding in this season. Can't wait to see all at the bike show.

Maybe

So I have been following this thread for a while. It looks like my summer plans are going to work. I am tenatively planning to come to the rally. All the way from USA Ga. I will have about 2 weeks to get there. I am hoping someone up there is intersted in doing the Dalton hwy or Dempster.

Anyone want to play tourguide? I have been taking notes on all the places to ride but don't want to do some of the remote areas with out a buddy, just in case.

Anyone leaving from South East United States around 6/8?

Look forward to getting an award for coming from the furthest away

Perhaps it is time to consider a Wednesday program. Maybe 1st time participants treat the Pterodactyls to diner and refreshments as they are taught the true meaning of D2D by Senseii Fite.
