Sjaak in Fairbanks

Yep, he made it in last night I hear. I stopped by the hotel this morning to look at his rig and talked with him for a couple minutes. Here's the rig:

Check out the Little rear tires, all the way to Florida?

The one-off rear tire is not doing so well, its a 7.00-16" custom knobby retread onto a Firestone Deluxe Champion tire (a vintage replica)

Bob the C is giving Sjaak a hand, I hear they've found a 7.50-16 snowtire that one of the tire shops is going to shave the edges off a bit and hope it'll fit.
They are also going to do some welding to strengthen the trailer hitch.
My shop is full at the moment but if any Fairbanks ADV'ers can lend a hand, shop space or host Sjaak overnight contact Bob Coleman at 9786715,
or PM him here or post onto Sjaak's FB page.

Laugh Thanks Solarmoose...

A huge Thank You to Solarmoose and AKBOB for lending some local support to Sjaak.

There is a reason you two were first on my list to call!

Big up to the Fairbanks ADV crew!
