I have been reading a lot about Alaska and D2D. I signed up.
When you feel up to it, can you expand on the trip north from Cody? I tried to MapQuest the route you outlined for me, but I think you were giving me the names of towns, areas and roads and MQ got confused.
I know that it is more than 4k miles from Chicago to Fairbanks, and I am getting my GS prepped for the ride. I even installed electronic cruise control. Paul
Paul, you'll have better luck if you try to follow the route on paper maps. You'll probably need state and provincial maps to get the needed detail. Lets know how that works.

Paul, on the maps side, as much as I dislike using the great ad-company Google, their maps do rule. If I can make it up there, this is, more or less, the route I want to take. It took me about 30 seconds to put it together.

https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=A...mra=ls&t=m&z=4

compared to mapquest, that could not find stewart, bc. Seriously, after writing this post, including doing the map above, mapquest is still spinning on stewart, bc.

I got a Garmin Montana 650 last summer, and with BaseMap I am relatively happy.

Kevin, et 'al, hope to meet y'all this year!

As well, a proper thank you is required for theDick, who helped me on my way in the summer of 2010.

ACtually, I lied, I forgot a stop

Yeah, I know some of y'all think it is silly to head all the way up to Inuvik, but then again, most of my friends down here think it is silly to ride to AK, so go figure.

Great you are home with the best care possible.
Nice to see they gave you a computer to use again.

Update:
The internal GPS has done a U-turn and has taken Kevin back to the hospital on 2/17 with a fever of 103.2
Not sure what is the cause yet, but they have hooked him up to three different
Antibiotics, and have cultured everything. This is the hospital version of your local BMW
Dealer diagnostics session, No doubt it will be almost as expensive, too.

Have I mentioned I don't like GPS?

So the bottom line is new farkles for Kevin.

He will have a PEG tube inserted Monday 2/25 under general anesthesia rather than the simpler version down the esophagus which was tried last Thursday.
I think he just wants the full tour of the entire hospital.

D2D still on schedule, SWAG van seats still available?
