Looking forward to trip 2 to Alaska, last one was in 15 with Mike
and a few others on the list.
By 2020 I will be fully retired, though I said that just before
the 15 trip. For the last 10 years I’ve worked with Oldcastle Lawn & Garden
heading up logistics for North America operations or simply put….wood chips in
Last trip, rode an 02 Ultra Classic, currently riding a 15 Ultra
Classic but the 2020 trip may be on a Yamaha Super Tenere.
I spilt my time between Melbourne, FL & Murphy, NC…will meet
up with the group at Deals Gap.
Will pass along that Mike’s suggestion of lodging at the
university campus is a good one. Last trip I had a suite at the University of
Alaska – Anchorage for $35 a night and had the use of the cafeteria. Used it as
a base camp.
This trip the goal is to visit Chicken, so Rob Stevens can buy me
a shot, Denali, Arctic Circle, Homer and see more icebergs. Took the ferry
last time back from Whittier to Bellingham, WA…it’s a nice trip and book it
early if you opt to go that way. (Editor's note .. I plan to follow him to Chicken and also would like to take the ferry)
Childhood friend John Garrity will be on this trip.
PS: If following Mike, be ready to duck pistachio shells as he
consumes a few while riding (Editor's note -- it's sunflower seeds (cheaper!))
