POIs: Alcan hwy,Dawson Crk,Fairbanks,Juneau,Skagway,Anchorage, Pt Barrow,Denali,Watson Lk, glaciers etc.
Travel on land and by ferry (Alaskan & BC).
est. fuel costs for 7-8k mi @ $5/gal. approx $3-4K.
Mainly daily camping, weekly motels for cleanup etc.
If 3-5 vehicles go, maybe we can convince the board to make this an official trip? The 1st NCLR Alaska Expedition?
I'm guessing be prepared for total expenses in the $5-6k range.
Start & end point is NorCal.
If anyone's done this before, prevent me from re-inventing the wheel and please post any info here or PM me.

have wanted to do this for a while. steven and i actually tossed the idea of an '09 trip around a year or two ago. would be tough with my three little ones, especially when the youngest would only be 16-17 months old. oh, and there's also the issue of getting that kind of time off... hmm, perhaps i'll have to quit just prior to the trip.
Yup... but I might have to put this trip off... Suzi looked at me yesterday and said she was thinking about wanting one more... :eek: I told her only if I got to buy a 110. Oddly, she said OK... :confused: ...somethings going on here...

2009 will be too soon for us to do a repeat but I'll enjoy consulting on the trip planning. I also hope to get enough internet access to post up our progress and a few pictures along the way.
