From Fairbanks to Eugene and starting back again...

Greetings, all.

My husband has been traveling from Alaska through Canada to Oregon to pick up our new AS.

He took the Cassiar Highway on the trip south...big mistake...construction and pilot cars through the wildfire areas cost him valuable time.

On the trip home, he will be taking the ALCAN. He just crossed the border going north and hopes to be back in Fairbanks on Saturday or Sunday.

(BTW, he said the 50 mile stretch of the ALCAN from the Canadian border into the Yukon is terrible, but there's no way to avoid it.)

Here are some first photos from Oregon and Washington.

We just made the trip back from Alaska(mid June to late July) 3 weeks ago.The bad section on the ALCAN is from Burwash (north of Destruction Bay) to Beaver Creek. Then there is a lot of 30 miles construction from the US border. Tell your husband to take it slow.

Congratulations on your new baby -- she's a beauty! You're going to have so much fun with her.

We spent the summer of 2009 in your great state (traveling about in our Airstream) -- it was truly the trip of a lifetime.
