    Sorry, I haven't been keeping up with the board for a while. Alaska 2010.

    First thing is by the Milepost book. It is the key to finding anything.

    Above the Artic Circle contact the people at the Boreal Lodge in Wiseman. Cheapest place to stay and they are lovely people. I was sick up there and they were full. She got her mom to rent me her "bunkhouse" so I wouldn't have to camp that night.

    Look on ADVrider.com and find the info to get the rooms at the Univ of Fairbanks. 35 a night, free laundry and some time to reminiscent about being in a dorm room.

    Expect to be wet. It will rain almost every day. My Stich and Sidi boots kepts me nice and dry. I had to switch gloves multiple times a day though, even with covers.

    Electric Jacket/Vest and grips make the trip much nicer.

    That's off the top of my head. hit me up at [email protected] if you have any specific questions and I don't respond here.

    grafty: I know you went to alaska a few years ago but I never saw a rr. If you wrote one out please point me in the right direction. If not, do you have any suggestions of what to do or not do? I'm kicking this ride around for next year.
    thanks
