    Yes, and I don't know if that makes me fearless or friendless.

    Thanks Andy. That feels good to hear while on the road, going on 3 weeks so far.

    Met a lot of really nice people on this trip. Lot's of Harley riders going to the HokaHey (sp?) Rally in Homer, GS riders doing the Haul Road, and a group of women from New Jersey. (I know, they were on Harleys too). But there's something about being on the wilderness quest of the Alcan that bonds people together who might otherwise just wave and keep going. One fellow I met on the way up was so concerned that I was riding alone. I saw him on the road going back and he ran up to me and gave me a big hug, saying he was happy to see I made it there and back, safely.

    Karen,

    Since you left Alaska it has been day after day of bright sunny skies and temps in the 80s here in Fairbanks. Wish you had had better weather for your visit, but now you have a reason to return.

    Oh noooooooo, I'm already in southern Oregon on my way to see my sister in California. But I will certainly be in Redmond next week. Hope to meet you guys.
    Yes, could've used some of that 80's yesterday afternoon and this afternoon. Reached 100 each afternoon. Riding I-5, the California Chimney.

    I've never been known for patients, but the forecast was for a week of rain. And to think I could've probably seen McKinley.
    You're right, a reason to visit again. Maybe a cruise one way, next time.
    Hope we see you in Redmond.

    I was comfortable riding all the way down TC5 to Abbotsford. Then took I-5 to Portland. Got really hot from Seattle south. But, that is all still west of 20, as you ride.
