Laugh Lock Up Your Children And Hide Your Pets

.... we confirmed our tickets yesterday from New Zealand to Alaska and we arrive 03rd May 2012 into Anchorage ... CANT WAIT!! ... (but we will probably have to) anyway you get the picture.

Trip preparation is going well, we are saving hard and our plan is coming together slowly.

Bit of a mish packing for NA arctic circle to equator then SA arctic circle with little space but I reckon we can make it work easy enough.

Lookin forward to meeting you guys that have given us help and ideas, also wonna flog some more info for must do and must see in Alaska while on an ADV bike budget of course ... nothing t o o spendie as we have along way to go.

Can't wait to see you two! Looks like you'll have plenty of time in Alaska. Put Homer in your schedule. Barb

Likewise Barb, Toddy has told us so much and we see what you do for bikers in your region too, we have a list of stuff that we would like to buy and if we can buy it through you would be great, will ping you an email with the list of stuff.

If you ride to Seward, which is a beautiful ride and only 2 - 2.5 hours from Anchorage, you can take a quick walk down the trail to the face of a glacier. there's additionally plenty of free camping in Seward area and along the way. This can additionally be done in one day if you are ambitious.

If you make it south to Homer, I offer free camping space, and possible use of guest shack (free if it is open)
You can see three glaciers from my front yard. Probably a moose calf or two around May.
Air compressor, oil change supplies, etc for your use.
And a fat stock of fluid refreshments....
Time gets closer, give me a call or PM.
Cheers.
Dean

Most excellent guys , we will certainly be having a good look around and appreciate your offer for camping space etc, we will do the bike run in and shake down etc, we have until D2D to play around including going to Prudhoe Bay (as you do) and as many other locations we can squeeze in, would like to get over and up to Inuvik too, can do that eitehr side of D2D depending on time.

Hopefully this will give us enough time to have good look around

When You hit Fairbanks

Give me a hollar. If I can't help one of the other Airheads can. Reasonable places to stay too. Children are all grown, play with Neka at your own peril.

Might think about Prudohe to the Equater.

Look forward to seeing you both in Dawson City. Two of our group also coming to D2D , husband and wife, rode to Ushuaia last year on KLRs. You should get together with them and compare notes.

Heya Mike

We were supposed to catch up with him last time we were in the Catlins but we ran outa time, will catch him next time down there or hopefully at the Dust To Dobson Gruven gathering Feb here in NZ.

Our door always open here mate ... except after May 2011 when we will be on your door (assuming the storm doesn't remove it)

Best for the storm event you fellas, stay safe and make sure there is still plenty for us to look at when we get there

Sounds even closer saying it like that

Will email you over Ellens measurement for the First Gear stuff Barb maybe tonight, we had a look on their webpage and the girlie cuts look nice.

Also if there are any other good quality chickie riding gear you sell let us know, we do want to buy good gear as it will be her suite and tie for a l o n g time (I am talking until she is 70 plus )
