Our plan is to take how ever long we want to take it. We are definitely not doing 500 miles a day. I have some it it planned out, but I keep changing it. We just changed out plans to do some dirt in Washington and maybe some dirt in colorado on the way back.
Only time we will be doing that many miles is from here to washington.
Here is the basic route
Up the 5 until San Fran, then go to the 101 and go through the redwood. In Oregon make way over to Crater lake. Head up the 5 and at the Oregon, washington border head inland a bit and start the Butler Maps Stevenson to Packword section
Then head inland to Seatle, Vancouver, Whistler, Then head up to Alaska and hit hyder on the way up (basically only 2 routes into Alaska).
Still not sure if we are going to hit the Pennisula first or go straight up to Prudhoe Bay.
Back To Cali
When we exit Alaska we will do Demspter Highway. Take the longer way back by going further into Canada and coming down into Wyoming. Hit Glacier NP, Yellowstone. Either then head straight back or do some dirt roads in Colorado.
