Mike,thank you for the reply. It seems that you are right,no way to get from Alaska to Vlad,other than double back to Bellingham and ship from there,but,that would add another 4 weeks(I've been told to allow 6!),plus a rather large,additional,wedge of money(my wallet throbs,uncontrolably, at the very mention of this trip!)
So,to Plan B,which is,and its something that I've often thought about.As I'm going to be in the USA for about 3 months, I may just do a tour to every State Capitol in the lower 48,plus Washington DC. Has this been done by anyone before by motorcycle,especially, a Brit on a motorcycle? Maybe you,or someone else around here,knows the answer.
