    High 80's and sunny in Fairbanks today; something to look forward to. We just returned from a four day ride to Dawson City. The ride over had mud, lots of mud, rain, hail, fog, cold temperatures, washed out roads and plague, famine and pestilence. The ride back was warm and sunny. Hope you get the later.

    Enjoy the ride! Someday, I hope to make this trip but from the east coast, I think I'll need to retire before having that long of a vacation.
