    At first glance I thought you were crazy to get to Gl;acier, then head into Kenai, then Anchorage and up…I thought…why not gp Ottowa to YUkon and make one top-to-bottom trip?
    Then, I rememberd hat hell it was for me to drive across all of Canada…flat, featureless, endless (!) So, wirth that memory in mind, I think the right thing to do is what you are doing…start in the south of Alaska and head over Kenai way then up, then back down.
    I guess Iceberg Alley didn’t make the cut….it’s a long haul. I may not go myself.
