Who'll be the distance champ for N-6

Forget about it Dusty Boots. It's only 160 miles from home and you going via Nome Alaska or wherever doesn't count.

So far lt looks like Florida or Kansas but I haven't checked the maps for miles.

Actually the prize will be based on kilometers since this is a Canadian event and therefore you will only receive 0.6214 of an equivalent American prize.

Any other long riders?

It's about 80 miles for me, as the crow flies, but a bit further as I will be going around Lake Erie instead of through it.

Sorry guys - the long distance award is mine, allllll mine. I have to ride from my real home in Norway, and as I will be going west through Siberia and across that bridge to Alaska, my mileage will be in the neighborhood of 20,000 give or take a thousand. That will be about 32,000 kilometers. Please ignore my listed location of North Bay, Ontario which is only just over 600 kms from the rally.

So, Y'All may now, as I give you a formal

Not yet, as I am only just leaving... But when I hit Alaska, I will begin to look. Is she still living in the Governors mansion? (yes, I know she is no longer the Governor, but some people just do what they want)

No, just Reindeer alert sensors. They have Reindeer in Lapland, but no Muskox. Will I see those in Alaska?

I think the ice bridge melted about 10,000 years ago.
