Nice.

Times means a lot to us who have to fit a tour within the parameters of a vacation though!

Well, if April is talking Yellowknife, it'll make the last trip look like a drive around the block.

What would our overseas friends like to see? I know you all missed the Grand Canyon last time.

Did you sleep through it Barry and Aiden?

This can be tailored to suit vacation schedules. The vision is to go from the Mexican border to Alaska via the inside passageway through Canada.

Well I thought you all missed it. Some did... I DON'T KNOW, LEAVE ME ALONE!

Sherry. That sounds like a great trip. Insane, but great. There are no direct flights from say Anchorage to the Isles for the group to fly home. Alaska Airlines (wife works for them) is the predominant carrier out of anywhere in Alaska, and there would be at least one connecting flight to overseas.

The time of year will be very important, and I don't think we'd be able to tie AMVIV into this one. We also need to avoid mosquito season in Alaska and the Yukon. Those damn things carry away small sheep.

Very roughly, we're talking over 3,500 miles one way. That's as good as traversing the U.S.

This is a July trip, at least the end.

Hotels are scarce along the route, we're going to drive our camper. I can do some checking for rental motorhomes if anyone is interested?

It's not a Mini trip then?

Poo.

Ok, need overseas input on this one. What do YOU guys want to see over here?
