Austin, TX, to Denali in AK

I have utilized this forum in preparation for my trip so I wanted to give my thanks. It helped from planning my route, to finding a couple places to stay (thanks guys), to knowing which gear to purchase. All the ride reports and incredible stories have kept me focused. It took a lot of financial and time commitment to make this trip possible.

A friend and I are leaving August 1st (maybe a day or two earlier depending on work schedule) and will have up until Sept 4th to get up there and back (11k miles including back roads). My friend's brother lives in southern Alaska and I have a few friends in Portland ,New Mexico, California, and a couple in Canada that make the trip easier/more enjoyable. Otherwise we'll be sleeping under the stars. We are going through a couple of my favorite parts in CO (boulder and telluride), then to yellowstone (first time), glacier park, to mt mckinley; should be a hell of a ride.

I'll post pictures when I get back. Keep the rubber side down fellow adventurers. If you guys are on sportbikes.net/cycleforums look me up-same screen name all over the net.
