Old Time Dawson.

Great find Willey's. By the looks of things, they way you keep digging up this stuff and keep comeing back North, You should move here. How many times have you been to D2D? It is a long ride from Ontario. I have only been once, and I only live 5 hours away. I have been in Whitehorse since 1960, and only been to Dawson 5 times. 3 times on a motorcycle. Lovely country and well worth the trip.

The far north is deep under my skin I'm afraid! I've been twice to the D2D and will do it again next year with a bit of luck. I hate winter or I would be pushing the better half to move. I would love to move even into Alberta as the ride would be much much easier to get to the land where the sun never sets........

That is when I was going to head up. I'll PM yeah and maybe I could tag along. Looking for a few beer drinking partners in Eagle Plains or Inuvik.

Furthest? Not too likely. I might pick you up on my way to D2D if you're ready to travel fast and light.

With my bike in Pennsylvania, and routing through Georgia to get to Wenatchee, WA on the way to Dawson City, it looks like I might actually get a decent ride in this summer.

Sounds like you WILL be doing some quality miles for sure. Stay safe brother.
Hey Jack are you still looking to share a room at the Annex? I've got the reservation in. We can square up when you get there.

Yep. Had planned on riding home on the Concours, then over to DC on the KLR. But leaving later than I had hoped for PA so I'll just ride to D2D from Pennsylvania, then go home after the non-rally.

I'll PM you.

Well that will make navigation easy for us Jack. We can follow the Connie's oil slick. By the way, where are Maggie and the rest of the wedding party staying?

She has insisted on staying somewhere with a second story, so I'm told. Has this thing about wanting to "elope" in the old-fashioned way, by climbing out a window and down a ladder. She has also insisted that you be there to photograph the whole thing, especially the descent of the ladder. She's really turned on by the "clothing optional" scenario that you mentioned.

You do have a wide angle lens, don't you?
