Default Alaska Bound!

Hey Guys!
Just thought I would throw this out here. I'm currently living in Alaska right now. Next summer I'm heading down the Alcan starting July 1st. Stopping in Washington then Montana and then the final stop in Minnesota to visit all of my family where I'm originally from. The old man, some friends, and I will be heading up to Anchorage, Denali and the Kenai Peninsula. So If anyone in the state of Minnesota thinks this sounds compelling, you should go! It will be a great time. The old man just bought a KLR and is loving it! So let me know and lets make it happen!

Sounds fun! What are the dates? Riding the whole way or trailering some?

I'm riding the whole way. The old man is going to ride up and then fly back down to Minnesota. I'm taking off on July 1st and should be in Minnesota at about a week and a half. So at about the 9th is what I'm thinking. You plan on heading up to Alaska?

I've flown to Fairbanks and Anchorage numerous times (I'm a former Northwest now Delta pilot) and would love to make the trip on the KLR. I live in MN currently. How does your father plan to get his bike back to MN? Maybe that is something I'd be interested in also.
Merry Christmas.

Oh Nice! What part of MN? As for the bike, that is still up in the air. He might leave it up here and have me sell it or just ship it back on a tractor trailer. I think he likes it too much to sell it. I'll ask him what his plans are. Merry Christmas to you too! Have a good one. We'll talk more closer to the date when I have things figured out a little more.

I have aspirations of making the AK from WI trip this summer around that timeframe. I am slim on details yet, but I would love some company. Last summer I did WI to Key West and back.

We should talk!

I used to live in AK as well, did commercial fishing a year and aerial survey a year (google earth images essentially)

I will PM you and see what your plans are and maybe we can ride together!
