The start dates are still firmly set in Jello Checkmate
The "Plan" is to cross over the Sweetgrass Border Crossing ~ Memorial Day weekend, 2018, spend a few days in Calgary/Banff area and then head toward Dawson Creek, BC and Milepost "0" of the Alaskan Highway. We are planning a FROG caravan Kickoff dinner while in Dawson Creek before departing.
Magic then happens and we fast-forward to August
We are looking at 2 return groups: One that heads back in August, and the other (led by Anne-Marie & I) that will head back in September (September is the earliest time of the year you can reliably see the Aurora Borealis, and this is a huge bucket list item for Anne-Marie.)
The general plan (again in Jello) is for the August group to essentially retrace their route back to the lower 48, while the September group will return via the Yukon Gold Rush route and disband to go your own way after crossing back in to the lower 48 just above Seattle, WA.
Anne-Marie and I plan to continue down Route 1 - Washington, Oregon, California, before hanging a right @ San Diego and heading for Alabama via AZ/NM/TX/LA/MS in time to spend Thanksgiving with our son & daughter. If you wish, ya'll are welcome to come with us on all or part of this leg of the trip as well!
