The 2017 Milepost is now out, and can be purchased online. I don't yet have my copy, so I can't comment on how much has changed from earlier editions you might have.

Before the meet, I should pull together photos from my 2012 "Bad Roads of the Arctic" tour, to belatedly add a lot of new material to my Dalton Highway web pages. That'll make them a better guide to touring the highway, as well as helping you spot things that've changed since I was last up there.

I'm still planning to not attend the meet, even if it happens instead in 2018. Multiple possible schedule conflicts for 2017, including a second cataract surgery (though the first one seems to have gone well, and I'm holding off on the other eye until autumn). Besides, I'm not up for a seventh an eighth visit to Alaska. ISTM that the meet will be more fun if most or all attendees are experiencing Alaska for the first time.

Have any details (e.g. a date) actually been established for this yet?

Due to shifting personal commitments on the parts of potential organizers and key attendees this is definitively not happening this year. There is a chance it may happen next year instead.

Oh good, I don't have to try and juggle things then.
