I'm planning on riding from Seattle to Anchorage and back early in the summer of 2009 (late June/early July). Ideally I'll take three or four days to get there, spend three or four days visiting relatives up there, and then take three or four days to return.
After Anchorage, I'm thinking about taking the Parks Hwy north from Wasila, alongside Denali National Park to Fairbanks, and then back to Tok and the return home on the Al-Can Hwy.
I plan on staying in motels between Seattle and Anchorage so I won't have to cart camping gear and I won't have to battle mosquitoes any more than necessary.
Ideally I'd like to find someone interested in making the trip around the same time. My wife would be happier if I had someone to ride with. Is anyone considering such a ride for 2009? If you are, I'd love to discuss the possibilities of traveling together.
