It's going to take a lot of planning, not to mention dollars ,to map out this exciting trip !
Armed with Lonely Planet guide books,wall maps,Fodor's Forum and trips to the travel agent for advice,I think we can do it!!
Early suggestions are Canada & Alaska first and then travel across the border to the US states of Montana,Wyoming and Nth & Sth Dakota then across Yellowstone? and on to San Francisco then home.
This all sounds a bit ambitious,especially with all that Alaska & Canada have to offer and 6 weeks to do it in but these four friends don't need 5star everywhere and a bit of roughing it is no big deal..
Having said that, we will be in bear country at some point and thick walls around where I'm sleeping will be a huge comfort!!
