Informing me that they were trying to get a gathering together for a type of meet up.
Out of a possible 16 members Dan said he only had 10 e-mail addresses. He mailed invitations to folks without e-mail, but didn't expect folks from Juneau, Haines, Sitka to attend.
Well it happened
Sharon-Bob, Dan-Sophi LaPan, Richard Machida, Dom Chang
The campground area, pretty hard to believe a couple of week ago this whole area was used for a snow dump area for the town.

Dan travels with a tent trailer on his sidecar. A couple years ago he took his daughter down to Disney World in Florida. Dan is a single parent and what great memories he is building for his daughter Sophi.
My dad took me from Alaska to Florida to see Disney Land in a sidecar. WOW
Dom's Orange Ural named Valencia
I've been following Dom's blog for a while, I enjoyed his pictures and the fact that he was riding in the winter in Colorado. I saw he was taking a trip up to Alaska in ADV rider and it seemed to fit in his time frame so I invited him to the gathering in Talkeetna. He ended up staying with us for a while and using our house as a temporary home base while he was exploring the south central part of Alaska. You should check out his blog redlegsrides.blogspot.com/ great pictures fun reading
The tent and sunshade in front or Don's outfit is mine. If it's raining, I put the sunshade up first then I'll have a some what dry place to put tent up with. This has been a great practice run for our upcoming trip.
It was great finally meeting Richard Machida face to face. We had exchanged thoughts on sidecars back and forth on ADV rider
