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.

i was wondering if that was in the works. For those who don’t know I spent some time with Ron and Betty two summers ago. The whole wing group met to escort me over the cascades. Ron said they wanted to make dang sure I was out of western WA for good. It didn’t work. LORD willing I am going back.

About the time you get there my Incident Command Team will be up on rotation. If we head to the northwest, or even Alaska I'll try to contact you. Alaska is have a large number of wildfires right now.

Don’t plan to pass many gas pumps. I do have a gallon canister strapped to the lazy rider.

Good luck Ray. I did that trip both ways in a 4 wheeled vehicle. The most beautiful scenery I’ve ever seen. Have fun!
