Florida to Deadhorse and Return

I'll RON in Regina on June 13, and Edmonton the following night, for a 48K service on my R1200GS, and hope to make it to Dawson Creek on June 15. Stops along the way to Deadhorse are Fort Nelson, Whitehorse, Fairbanks, and from Deadhorse back to Fairbanks, down to Denali, Anchorage (Fort Richardon, old stomping grounds), and up to Tok. From there I am heading to Vancouver (friends) and Seattle (children). Route from Tok to Vancouver is through Whitehorse, Watson Lake, Dawson Creek, and Prince George.

If you move up your departure from Regina we might ride along together for a bit.

I camped for 26 years in the army, so I am looking for a hot shower, clean sheets, and a Wi-Fi connection each night.

If you want to coordinate the ride, drop me a personal email.

Hay guys,
I'll be heading up through the Yukon, NWT, and Alaska throughout the month of June.
I leave Calgary on June 1st and ride to Whitehorse via the Cassiar Highway.
I'll be in Whitehorse for the weekend of the 9/10th, then carry-on up the dempster to Inuvik, back to Fairbanks, up to Deadhorse, down to Anchorage and so on... I'll be on a blue F650GS Dakar, hopefully we can cross paths! Or better yet, do some riding together!!
Please feel free to get in touch if you might be in the area/ at the time.
Always nice to run into new friends on the trail...
Ride safe, see yo soon

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
