Not Yet, But Illinois to the Arctic and Back Is Coming This Summer

Hello Everyone. No ride report here, at least not yet. But in late June, I'm leaving Central Illinois and heading off towards the Arctic. Likely will leave during the last week of June. Will pass through Jellystone Park, Glacier National, and ride the Icefield Parkway on my way to Alaska. Will hit Anchorage, Anchor Pointe, Fairbanks and Deadhorse.

Then back down to Portland Oregon for the BMW Rally. Then from there I'll ride Highway 1 south eventually making San Diego. Over to Alamogordo, NM, and work my way back to Central Illinois.

This trip is mainly a riding trip. Will be doing some site seeing along the way. Got cameras, videos, DSLR, etc. to record and prepare ride reports.

Anyone who might be heading that way during that time of year? It would be great to hear from you. I'm traveling by myself. But some company would be great along the way. Especially in northern Alaska.

Thumb Pretty much the same trip I want to make....

I hope you have a great time. I'm hoping to do a similar trip one day soon when I'm done with this project. Looks like you should have an awesome trip from what I've seen of the other reports on here.
Be safe man.

You know you are just across the river from me, Glasford I mean. I'm in Tremont.
