Trip Timeline

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

We plan on heading west around May 1st.  Where we stop and how long depends on how things work out, we are certainly not going to make any kind of rigid schedule.   First major stops will be in the southwest, around some of the National Parks near and including the Grand Canyon.     We will be visiting my 3 grandkids and the family in San Jose on Memorial Day.      Will stop and see friends in Oregon and Washington after that.  Then it is on to Vancouver and then Victoria.   We will spend some time on Vancouver Island and then catch the ferry from Port Hardy on the north end of Vancouver Island on June 15th.  This will be an all day trip to Prince Rupert, BC.   Then we will drive to Anchorage and meet a friend who is renting a camper starting June 27.   We will travel and fish together south of Anchorage around the Kenai for a week.   

We will be in Alaska for a while -visiting Homer and Seward and a friend in Soldotna.  Of course we will get up to Denali and Fairbanks  and  then eventually start down the Alaska Highway.    We look forward to the Yukon and BC and fishing in many places along the road.

We will go thru Jasper and Banff and then Glacier and Yellowstone before heading east  - will get home in August and see how the honeybees and apple trees are doing.
