Default Leaving for Alaska

Heading out early Thursday morning and I have all my "to do" items checked off with the exception of the PHH, On Board Shower, and Replacing the Coolant.

I have been waiting for this along time. Actually longer than I have been into Cruisers so now I get the best of both worlds.

I realize this is Chat but I had to share again.

I will update with Photos once I get some good pics.

A guy I work with took a month off and is doing Alaska on a motorcycle. Last I checked on his SPOT tracker page, he was right outside Glenallen. Spot is a great thing to have on a trip like this.

Alaska or maybe Montana was more or less the destination when we left St. Louis. Ran out of money, so Denver was as far as we got. That was almost 14 years ago now and still haven't made it. Count me as jealous, too!
