    Seems like a candidate for publishing as a Rover's North magazine article....

    North to Alaska in Aug 2010

    Anyone got time in Aug 2010 to buddy up and drive to AK? I'm looking for a micro-caravan (2-3 vehicles).


    I tripled the value of my Rover just by filling up the gas tank.

    Huge Kudos!

    I've been to a few forums and think 'expedition' when it comes to Land Rovers and this just exemplifies it to the 'T'. A lot of 'Wow' factors and incredible pictures and storyline. It's funny that I've skipped over this thread over and over until this morning.

    My wife has Alaska in her blood. She is part Inuit as her grand mother was born in Pt. Barrow (Northernest tip of Alaska). She had a military background as her deceased father settled into the Lower 48. I managed to go up to Alaska back in 04' to meet her in Anchorage. We took the Alaskan railroad up to Fairbanks and rented a car to drive back to Anchorage. The scenery was exactly like these pictures! There is a Youtube video w/the rock group Goo Goo dolls riding the Alaskan Railroad that shows the train ride scenery that we experienced. A moment we will never forget.

    If you can make an Alaskan trip in your lifetime it is well worth it! To this day I continue to think back upon that trip and seeing the most beautiful scenery that I've seen. I'm from the Midwest and have lived in the Southeast for the past 11 years.

    Thanks for bringing back the memories! You did what I'll proably never get the chance to do and in a Discovery. Too cool!

    Regards
