I'm subscribed!

I took my 2011 Patrol to AK in summer of 2011 but I live near Spokane, WA, and that's a lot fewer miles than from AZ.

My RR is on Soviet Steeds:

I'll look forward to being a "passenger" on your trip.

Looking forward to your blog. Wife and I are planning on doing the Yukon/Alaska this summer as well. Not sure what we'll take; the Vstrom or the brand new Yamal.

Take the Yamal. This trip is taylor-made for Urals. I see you're already in NE Alberta so I'd definitely go sidecar.

co_g30, if you decide to go through Spokane rather than Seattle (I-5 ugh!) I have a well equipped shop, spare bedroom, BBQ and beer.

If you pass through Port Townsend you will be welcome to stay in my guest cabin. You can use my shop for maintenance or mods

Should be a great trip. Let me know if you are interested in alternative - more twisties, less interstate - routes through Oregon and Washington.

Sounds good, but you're welcome anytime.

BTW, it seems like mid April might be a little early for heading north ... ? A friend in Anchorage says they got about 15" of snow a few days ago. Heated clothing?

Well, as I am moving at URAL speed, I don't expect to reach Fairbanks till late April so it should be fine. Yes, I have a heated vest and grips. Have ridden in -14F with no issues.

On the way back I would suggest hitting the Top of the World Highway from Tok, AK to Dawson City, YT. It was a blast. Do watch the weather. A friend went up there early in the year and got rained on for 13 of 16 days he was up there.

You'll love it up there. I did when I went.
