Smile Alcan

We did the Alcan, very easy as long as you are patient with the weather. Late May, totally VFR. 4 days from Texas to Anchorage, 10 days for return, because of weather. I posted about the trip in 2019 and we did go alone. Its a great trip, we were gone a total of 28 days.

Default Went to Canada Instead

After deciding from the research that Alaska was a bit late in the season this year decided to head to eastern Canada instead.

5 days, 42.0 hours logged, 442.88 gallons burned, 1 night in a hotel.

Wow, this is so true. Was up in BC, and truly enjoyed the Canadian Customs & FSS. Of course, that all changed on the return and US FSS & US customs beat-down. The US moto is we will give you the shake-down, even though you did everything right.
