Hey I do service work along the first first 450 miles of the Alaska highway, every week driving between mile 0 and mile 283.

Do you have an idea how painful it is passing all these content n' loaded motorcycles when you're too busy to get anytime off! This is distracted driving at it's best.

Cheers, and have a great D2D!

At 2:45 this afternoon (Sunday) it was 89F at Mile 22 on the Tok Cut-Off. Humidity is around 15% or lower, so bring hydration.

Wish I were going to D2D as originally planned, but senior moments (becoming more frequent ) can sure screw things up!

Wish I could, but many people are counting on me to get the job done during our all-too-short summer work season. Besides, I kinda threw down the gauntlet when I more or less said (dang big mouth!) "Step aside and watch how it's done." to the Board President.

Sure hope I remember this lesson next year. Hmmm, maybe I'd better be happy if I can remember it next week.

Your presence will be surely missed Jack! Best wishes on the project
I know you will put those young bucks in their place as you work circles around them
