My first day in Alaska, I decide to ride up to the Arctic Circle on the Dalton Highway to take pictures. I want to get fuel about halfway up to the Circle at the Yukon River Camp. So do eleven other riders who arrive shortly after I do. None of us know each other. Some are heading North to the Arctic Ocean. Some are heading South coming from the Ocean. Now we all need to ride together so we all can get safely back to Fairbanks and refuel our bikes.
