    Thanks Tuk

    Dear fellow MOA riders. This spring I'll be riding my GS up to Tuktoyaktuk on the new portion of the Dempster Highway. In collaboration with the Tuktoyaktuk Office of Economic Development, I've come up with a campaign to help raise funds for them. I invite you to check out the details at http://gofundme.com/thankstuk. I hope that you can support it or help spread the word. We all want to go up there, they want us there, but we have to help them to face the likely hordes of new visitors. Thanks Tuk for having us and thanks to all of you for your potential support. Cemil (Jim) Alyanak - #37395

    EME would be fun indeed. Hadn't thought of it. I'll think about it. Definitely HF though, likely on 20M, maybe 40M. I doubt anything above that will be open but I can always dream. Hey, as far as going up with me, I think a few people might join up with me in Dawson City around third week of May and then, weather permitting, head up slowly and wait it out right by the Ferry and then dart up to be among the first to make it up!!

    Now that has the making of either an adventure or a disaster. But then, sometimes an adventure is just a disaster fondly remembered.

    Cool Arctic Ocean

    For those thinking of going to Tuk someday, thought I would post a picture by Deborah Raddi. Quite the shot!

    This was me on my way up the Alaska Highway in 2015.

    Can't wait for the 2018 run ALL THE WAY up to Tuk! My GSA looks at me every day asking: "Can we just leave now!" And this time I'll have a nice reward at the end of the run... an I Made it to Tuk sticker. Thanks to all who have been donating to the Thanks Tuk campaign!!

    Happy

    HAPPY!!! The first batch of I MADE IT TO TUK stickers, several thousand, are now IN TUKTOYAKTUK!! They have arrived! Annie has told me how pleased they are with them. They will be going on sale shortly. She has promised me that she would be the very first client!! Annie and I are going to talk tomorrow about what else we can do together for Tuk. Maybe patches? Reflective stickers? We'll see... In any case, THANK YOU to all who have contributed and please, if you still believe in this project, share it with others. We'd like to keep going and give Tuk that little bit of extra help. Really very happy right now!! For those who have not yet donated, if you'd like to, gofundme.com/thankstuk
