Mikey , actually I thought of a name when you won it all , from my Navy days no less , we had a guy on the ship who was responsible for taking oil and fuel samples among other things , responsible for many things related to fuel oil and water purity and the like ...

He was called the "Oil King"

Thanks for all the info here for us non-FB folk.
Regretfully, this should be my first Shark week, but I'm doing my Alaska trip this summer and will be passing thru this area late June and coming back down Pacific coast in early August. Alaska is a bucket list for me, gotta do while I'm healthy (12,000 miles 6 to 8 weeks) my wife thinks I'm a nut, but I can point to all you guys as proof that I'm just another nut. Have a great time, catch you next year.

Even better than the trailer was the Awesome Pickup that was pulling it. Here is the crew that showed up to help. Nothing like melting a wire on the rear cylinder temp sensor to shut down a bike. Got it fixed in the parking lot at the hotel, with a little advice from Carol.

Went all the way from St. Peters, MO, to Hyder, Alaska and got within 10 miles of the hotel before it quit.

Here's my Alaska trip experience. I missed Shark Week I because of it, but like you, it was a bucket list item. Worth every mile!

Thanks Shrug, looks like a familiar timeline. I starting with planning (and selecting a new bike) in Oct for a planned late June departure (my 40th anniversary is June 23rd and Ive been warned that I shouldnt forget that, again) I will surely find some good hints as I go through this. Also very impressed with the level of effort it took to put this all together. Im on a one year sabbatical (or maybe Im retired if I dont land a decent gig when I get back in the fall), Im alittle older than you, but figured you gotta go while you still can, so Im goin'
