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.

Resetting the poll for the coming year. I expect Duke87 to ultimately be the driver (pun) of what week this happens, but feedback can't hurt.

I'm glad to see that this idea is being resurrected for 2018. I very much want to participate somehow, but it's too soon for me to be able to vote on specific dates.

As a side note, should/can the subject line of this thread be changed to say 2018 instead of 2017?

At the time he posted, the original post still said 2017 (which you have since changed), and all replies match the original post's title at the time of posting unless intentionally changed.

As with anything else, this is subject to getting blown up by further later developments, but as of now most of the given dates potentially work - only weeks that definitely don't are 6/24-30 and 7/1-7, since I have a wedding in Maine on 6/30 I am expected to be at.

7/8-14 is also iffy, because Alyssa's birthday is that week.

So that locks out...6/24 to 7/14? I'd be in favor of doing it either right on the front end or right on the back end of that, so either mid-June or mid-July.

I will need us to have a date locked in by the end of the year for me to be able to go, but I am committed to going (and driving a Daltonable vehicle up from Idaho to do this) if we can meet that condition.
