There are also people who are comfortable towing through snow storms, but I'm not one of those people either.

Hopefully in my lifetime things will change and we will one day travel down to Mexico with the trailer.

Even without Mexico, I probably won't have time to see all of Canada and the US.

Little jump by ferry to Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.

I was talking to my wife today, about taking three or four months off work and taking the trailer and the boys across Canada. Go west up north and then return back east via the US.

Not next year, but with a bit of luck, the year after we should be able to swing it.

With 11 days down and a 4 days to go in British Columbia, I would highly recommend this province. We started in Peachland on Lake Okanagan with it's many vinyards an wineries, our favorite Dirty Laundry. Then on to Whistler via Lillooet. The Sea to Sky highway from Squamish to Horseshoe Bay is one of the most beautiful drives we have ever done. Then we took the BC Ferry to naniamo then to Tofino. After two night on Mackenzie beach we are now nestled at Brown's Bay Resort north of Campbell River. If this area is not on your bucket list I suggest you ad it!

Propane doesn't vaporize well in sub-zero conditions. Not only would you need another propane tank, you'd need a propane tank heater for Antarctica. Still, for sheer ambition and audacity, your ultimate caravan takes the grand prize!

Guess yours is an "ice bucket list"!

Wow, I haven't heard of half of these. Mid-may of next year, my contract ends and I'll be looking for a new one. I am thinking of taking my fully restored 64 on a 1 month trip that goes across the top and bottom of the U.S. Maybe getting some pics of us standing in each Ocean. I'll have to go through this list and see what works for us.

One issue is that I will have boys aged 7 and 13 (we'll probably skip Vegas and Burning Man). It may be tough for me and my wife to keep our sanity. I should save money with a 3500 lb 26' 1964 trailer but requests to stop every 5 miles for food may be tough to ignore. Fortunately my wife is a healthnut. Unfortunately, you can't always pull through a drive through for organic bananas.

Any idea where people get those neat US maps with the states colored in?
