I'm feeling the urge to do the Chevy Chase Grand Canyon version of Alaska...ride to Stewart, cross the border, yep, I'm in Alaska, and home again via the inside passage. Don't have time (or the right bike) to do the real deal to Anchorage, and it's a little late in the season...August is rainy season.
4 days depending on inside passage ferry bookings.
Plan is to leave early Aug 17th , Ride back Aug 20th
Only 3000 Km
*Edit* No ferry...ride all the way.
*Edit* Plan B: looks like several days of rain to the North, so rather than ride 3000km in the wet, I may just follow the blue sky East or South. No real plan: Ride, Sleep, Ride, go somewhere I've never been before, ride, sleep, ride...
Maybe some of the LD guys like Bill, Michael or Jeckyll can chime in.
