Looking for Alaska partner July 1-July 30, 2009
I have 5 weeks off this summer. Looking to do San Diego to Anchorage and back. I plan to get to Seattle in 2 days (by June 29). Then will do approximately 500 miles per day to Anchorage with side trip to Hyder. Hope to make Anchorage area by July5-6. I would like to see some of the Kenai Peninsula, McKinley Highway, Valdez, and Top of the World Highway. I am not planning to go to the Arctic Circle or Prudhoe Bay.
I plan to camp as much as possible to save money. I have done other shorter trips solo (SD to Canada, SD to Montana, SD to Taos, SD to Colorado, and multiple trips up the California coast. These trips were from 1000 miles to 5000 miles round trip). The Alaska trip promises to be 9,000 miles or more.
If you are planning a trip to Alaska in July and would consider a riding partner for part or all of the trip, let me know. I could alter my route north to take I 15 through Utah, Idaho, Montana or go north on I 5 through California, Oregon and Washington (preferred). If you are coming from the eastern states, I could meet up with you in Dawson Creek.
Contact me for any additional info.
