Off to Alaska

Sat, Apr 15, 2016

Bike rides in Marin, runs on Mt Tam, dinners with friends.  The past two weeks sure blew by.

Then we put our cars back in storage, said our good-byes and hit the road.


We are planning to reach Anchorage on June 8 so we’ll be taking our time.  The approach is to drive one day and then lay over the next.  This per the Carol Doctrine.

The first part of our trip will take us up the west coast to Port Angeles near Olympic National Park.  Then we’ll ferry to Vancouver island for a six day visit.  Then back on a ferry to Vancouver and on to Banff and Jasper where we’ll arrive in mid May.  Let’s hope the Canadians do a good job with snow removal 🙂

I haven’t worked out the details of the rest of the trip but we’ll go up the Alaskan Highway to Tok, Alaska.  Then we’ll spend five weeks as we drive the Tok > Anchorage > Homer > Anchorage > Denali > Fairbanks > Tok loop.  Then back south via the Cassiar Highway.

Carol and I will have our hands full 🙂
