" I stopped and chatted with a large group of ADV riders at the gas station and after I visited the information center,saw that they were all parked outside the hotel. This time I took my helmet off and went in to say hi. They were ending up at the rally,not-a-rally, eventually, doing the Dalton first. Theyy were all great guys and asked if I would like to join their group but I declined,I travel solo happily...( most of the time)
Sadly, I would find out later that the rider who was so friendly and welcoming to me crashed badly 200 k south of Deadhorse and had to be airlifted to Fairbanks. "

I remember that day.. I ended up meeting you again in Dawson and took your advice on camping just out of town, remember? Great RR L~

Read your RR this morning. Congrats and very inspiring. It's amazing how little things you share touch and change people and there opinions.
I am really impressed and in awe. Thank you!

Well said ... I'm not much for words so I will just agree whole heartedly.

I love finding these tidbits for RRs. I don't have nearly the time but it's great to come across one like this from time to time
