So now that i've cought up on sleep, guess it's time to start posting pics from the trip.

Gotta give a big thanks to the Expeditions 7 team and Proffitt's Cruisers for letting me tag along for the staging to Alaska portion.

Though there was a lot of driving, about 550 miles a day, we did manage some R&R each day.

Sadly, I didnt get to see the Northern Lights. Pulled an all nighter just for that purpose.

Haines and the Northern Yukon were my favorite parts.

And lastly, only in a cruiser comunity can you meet someone for the first time a few hours before departure, spend a whole week with them and have no issue.

Nearing Boise Idaho. We made a call to Eric Vogt in hopes of meeting up for a bit. Turns out we already passed his home of Mountain Home Idaho.

Camp the first night. Sleeping in the Cruisers were actually comfy. And the SBar heaters made the cold nights tolerable.
