   The 17th Florida/Alaska Motorcycle Adventure is set for July 4, 2020.  The difference between this and the previous 16 trips is simple:  MUCH SHORTER DAYS.  Each day is planned as a destination all by itself.   It has been my experience that if you have the mindset just to get to Alaska, the several days you experience before you get there are not enjoyable.   Rather, if you look forward to each and every separate day without counting how many more days to Alaska, you will be enjoying yourself immensely.  Photo is John Dickie

    Prudhoe Bay!   Valdez!   Homer!  Sitka!   Anchorage!   Fairbanks!   Ride in bush mail plane!   Mountains!   Glaciers!   Local food!   Mom and Pop bakeries!  What's not to like about this trip --- and all proceeds help families of deaf and/or blind babies served by SKI-HI!

    Mike's ideas
-- There are fly and/or drive tour options to Prudhoe Bay.  Checking online there are "nosebleed" prices of 3-days to Prudhoe Bay and other points up North (lodging included) for close to $2,000 but, hey, if this is a once in a lifetime trip, save up for it!   Other options which I am inclined to take is a passenger van from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay and back for $500 (current prices).  It is very difficult to rent a dirt road ready bike from Fairbanks to drive up to Prudhoe Bay so I suggest you make your rental arrangements NOW for a possible date of around July 18 or thereabouts.


  News flash ... #1 hotel in the world way up in the mountains ... one hour helicopter ride just to get there.   I know it's $$$ but hey, you have until 2020 to save money and make this an epic once in a lifetime trip.  (Truth be told, I'll pass on this until I get my sweetheart to come)  See  Sheldonchalet.com

    Also, quite a few bikers seem interested in taking the ferry to Washington State after Alaska.  I'm interested in that with making a return trip home via Logan, Utah (home of SKIHI.org) and Midland, Texas (where my daughter lives)

     This would be a great "reunion" for all former bikers!

Each boldfaced biker above has a separate page so he/she can introduce himself/herself and talk about plans.  Bikers -- please email me (1) a picture of you and your bike; (2) introduce yourself; (3) what you plan to do once you arrive in Alaska and (4) your bucket list routes when you go home.

Group emailing was started March 18, 2018 so bikers can arrange to ride together to rendezvous points and also to arrange room-mates, if wanted.

Badge logo -- each biker will receive a windshield attachment with the logo and an unique number inside a yellow circle for identification.
