Greetings from Anchorage, Alaska USA

It's 10 degrees farenheit here today and I'm "jonesing" to ride. All I can do is visit my bikes in the garage, read about bikes, and watch 2010 races on the DVR. So here I am, a newly registered Rat.Net member. Happy New Year to all.

Happy New Year and welcome. BTW, isnt there a ferry from Seattle to AK? How long is it. I want to do a ride to AK.....but i have been banned from Canada and i am not allowed to enter the country or even try to for that matter without written consent from their judicial system.
Anyway, welcome and im sure you will find something on this forum to help with the long winter.

There is a ferry from Bellinham, WA to Alaska however, as I recall it only goes as far north as Haines, which is in southeast AK. To ride to "mainland" AK from Haines, you must go - you guessed it - through Canada. From Haines it's a bit north into BC and Yukon Territory, then into Alaska. All told, it's just a day in Canada but definitely throgh the borders.

Thanks for the welcome note.

Ha! You are right! Just saw your post and wouldn't you know, I'm about 80% done with putting ice screws on the knobs of my little KLX125. Gonna hit the ice with some pals this weekend. Should be fun!
