RayJ and Billy to Alaska

Tomorrow at O Dark 30, I will leave here headed due north of two day before I turn left in Minneapolis headed for the AlCan. Been planning this one for about 8 months or so. Tomorrow is the start. Right now we have mapped out a little short of 11k miles for the trip. Riding with my good. old, long term friend Billy from East TN. I will meet Billy in Salem, IL tomorrow afternoon if our plans hold up.

I have a pic of my Wing loaded for departure. I am sure Billy's Harley looks something similar. Won't get to buy much stuff on the trip unless I ship it home. It is a little tough to pack for both 35 deg mornings and 105 deg days. The joys of multiple latitudes and elevations.

Remember the days the sleeping bag was secured to the front fender and fork tubes ? That would look cool.

One thing we'll do is if we are figuring on buying some souvenir T-shirts we'll leave home with some throw away shirts exc. then after we've worn them a couple days they go in the trash making a little extra room.
