my wife can't understand this trip either..."Honey, weren't you just there", but the northern roads hold a certain lure, and with that country changing so fast, the opportunity was not to be missed.

thanks, that helps, but you might not know this...a Funk Chubbie has a SOUL, so i'm still a little worried.

i'd leave him at kevin's house, but with all that exotic wood on there, he'd end up in a BBQ pit helping smoke a big ass piece of meat.

I wouldn't do that to your skateboard, but I might save my back and bolt it to the bottom of the beer cooler.

damn, who the heck said innovation in the USA was dead...but i figured you were going to say that you'd teach Dixie, the avatar dog, to ride the Funk Chubbie.

departure countdown, and about ready to load up the GPS.

to stay on route, i'll need (in no particular order)...no snow, no 75mph winds, no forest fires, no road washouts...so hey, y'all, don't close my freakin' roads. roll the dice....

you're welcome to ride along, heck of a mountain route most of the way. if you guys leave right this minute and ride 30 hours at 100mph you'll arrive at the departure point right on schedule. see ya there...don't forget the pie.

Dave - you're NOT the only one. Back in '04, planning my first (by bike...) Alaska trip, my wife said she can not understand WHY I want to go.... Same comment in '07, again in '09. Now, all she does is shake her head, gimme a hug and a kiss, stands there waving as I head out....
