Agreed. I saw several slacked jaws last time as I rode back to my camping spot on my 1800 Goldwing.

Beats being laughed at while pootling about on a scooter I suppose.

I made a loop around the ski slope riding my Venture pulling a trailer.

Looking forward to arriving Thursday afternoon. Camping at one of the hotels in town. The last one was the best rally that I've ever attended.

I've been enlisted for a discussion about riding the Dalton and Alaskan Highways and long distance on Saturday afternoon, in the lodge at the top of the Spirit Mountain.

Be sure to add "Do as I say, don't do as I do."

Wish I could be there. Have fun. Visit w/Kevin & Annie.

I agree. Many things to do/see and very well organized.

But - what should I say?



Are you still outside, Jack, or have you returned home? I'll send Kevin and Annie your best.

Tell them to slow down so they won't have as many flats.

Back home...for nearly two months. After the heat, humidity, and heavy traffic in Florida I didn't waste any time getting back to Alaska. Took a quick little ride over to the NWT on the Dempster, but not all the way to Inuvik. Too little time, too many things to do around home.

Stayed with Kevin & Annie on the way home - Kevin's looking a lot better now. Be sure to tell them I said Hi. Watching their SPOT tracks.

Kind of like the sand traps in the overflow camping @ the old Bulow campground during bikeweek in Daytona.
Leaving Greenville SC Tue am. The route is N/W till Thursday.

Actually, I'm available anytime.. I'm staying in Chippewa Falls Thursday night, and will be wandering north getting grand tour towns on the way to Delta..

You say a time, and I'll be there..

Oddly enough, the waitstaff claimed to know you very, very well..

White Chocolate Banana Creme.... I got the last slice... OMG!!!



Watched a guy spend a cool Grand on a new suit.. I spent $40..

OK, I'll get back to you on a time.

I am reasonably well known there.

I can't help it really. The food is wonderful. The riding in the area is fabbo, and it's fun as hell there.

For some reason, the last piece of pie always tastes the best. I think it's because it is sweetened with the essence of denying it to other people.

I had the peach pie today. Maaaaaahvellous!
