Hi everyone! The wife and I have spent a few years researching and getting ready to make the move to Fairbanks. Now the house has sold and we are in the process of packing and gathering the things we need to safely make the trip. Our current plan is to drive to Bellingham WA and ferry to Whittier. Then make the drive to Fairbanks from there. We are both excited, yet maintaining a healthy respect for the scope of our goal. We plan to camp our way up across the lower 48 not really due to money but to get acclimated before we spend 7 days in a tent duct taped to the deck of a ferry. This should be an epic journey if there ever was one.
