What a great site! I happened upon it looking for information on what the road is like between Grand Cache and Grande Prairie for the road trip I'm planning around northern BC and Alberta. The AMA and the Alberta Highways sites couldn't tell me about the road, but you did. Your photos and stories are wonderful to wander through and they bring back memories of my favourite road trip ever through Alaska and the Yukon. Looking forward to following in your footsteps.

Thank you so much for your wonderful journal of your 2001 trip north to the Arctic. Your information and comments have been very helpful to us as we prepare to leave for our five week road trip from California to Inuvik and back. We hope we can also help other travellers by posting a journal of our adventures this summer.

Surfed to your page while looking for tips on the Dempster Highway. Loved your stuff! Great photos as well. Well done. I'm planning a trip north from my home in southern British Columbia. I'm headed up to the Alaska Highway then on the Dempster to Inuvik. I'll be following your trail for alot of your northern journey.
Last year I drove to some 44 states in your country. Loved it, especially the Blue Ridge Parkway/Skyline Drive. I'm also really fond of the 4 corners area. Southern Utah has some of my favorite spots to get away from it all. Maybe we'll meet on the road somewhere!

I stumbled on to your web site journal of your journeys across America. I found your site doing a web search on "New England, North Dakota." Often I find travel journals simply by entering a city and state into a search engine. I picked up reading your journal from Michigan and then west and will likely read the whole thing. Very nice travel journal and great pictures. I've been to many of the places you've traveled to and it brings back great memories. Of particular interest, Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site outside Williston, North Dakota. My brother, Paul Hedren, was superintendant of the park in the '80s and headed up the restoration of the fort. It was with his effort and the tremendous efforts of the citizens of Williston and local communities that this restoration came to be. As I come across other interesting locales, I'll enter more in your guestbook.

This site is a wonderful journey in itself. You have put so much into it. Thank you for making it available for others to see. Sure envy you your trip. Now that I have found it, I can refer my friends that are headed to the Yukon to see what there is to see. I enjoyed your section on Keno City - as I grew up in that area, and the mining museum has all the junk from our basement in it!!

Thank you for this site! I found it while doing a search for the Lost Bridge in North Dakota. My wife was the sculptor who created the bronze memorial. I'd been looking all over for the one photo I have of it, and finally decided to see if there was a picture of it on the Internet, but I certainly didn't get my hopes up. It was amazing and wonderful how quickly I found your site and the very nice photo. As I'm sure you'll agree, it's a beautiful area, but so remote that a person really doesn't just pass through that way every day!
Thanks for doing such a fine job showing what a beautiful place North Dakota really is.

I just found your web site quite by accident while looking for some information about the Cassiar Highway to share with a friend who is planning the trip this Summer. I made the Alaska trip in August and September of 2002. Your wonderful photos sure take me back. I envy you all the good weather. It was good to finally see some of the places that were in the clouds as I traveled up to Hyder. I saved the Dempster Highway, Inuvik, and Tuk for last. Your trip and web site was truly a monumental undertaking. It is one of the best collections of Alaska, Yukon, and NWT photographs in one place on the Internet.
It was great reading about some of the nice people that I met on my trip. I especially remember Chuck at the Border Bandit, Diana at the Bus, and I will never forget Fred all of Hyder. I remember Maureen at Tuk and Simon is the one who taught me to pronounce Tuktoyaktuk. It's a small world.
I don't know how you kept the information about all the places straight but I did notice one place where the photos are out of synchronization with the narration. Just thought that you might want to have a look and make the necessary corrections. In your Dempster Highway log for August 29, your first ferry crossing would have been at the Peel River just south of Fort McPherson. That is the smaller ferry that operates on a cable. The larger ferry is actually on the mighty Mackenzie River. It serves the town of Arctic Red River (Tsiigehtchik) but does not actually cross the Arctic Red River.
Thank you again for sharing your memories and photographs of the people and places along your journey.

I will assume the "museum" you are referring to in 2001 trip passing through Redmond was the one at Petersen's Rock Garden? I am not originally from Oregon and had trouble finding this one myself, but it is there! Once you follow the signs to the road it's on, there are no more signs, you just kind of have to figure out how far you've gone (odometer is good for this) and take a guess. Anyhow, interesting trip. Good luck on any future ones!

Came across your site because the Toad River web page resides on my Campground Directory. If you don't mind, I'll put a link to your 2001 index page on my links page. From what I've read your diaries will be helpful to my 'book and map customers. Rodg Found www.karo-ent.com

It was so much fun finding this page by accident. You see, On September 27,2000 I left NJ on a goal to drive across country via every state but Alaska. I Did this in my 1969 VW Camper mini bus. I did not have as much time as you did but was able to complete my road trip by December and put aprox 15,000 miles on the auto. Prior to this trip I had driven across country 14 times but this was the first time that I went to all the state on one trip. Everybody need to do this once in their life. I am so glad to see that you did this!
