Shannon and I tackled the trip by road from Dallas, Texas to Fairbanks, Alaska in my 1995 Honda Accord EX, a 6-day (one-way) journey that took us deep into the northern taiga forests on some of the most remote roads on the continent. In fact I took the precaution of having the Accord checked out, replacing the flimsy donut tire with a real spare, and packing a complete assortment of tools and emergency items. Once we made it to Fairbanks we arranged to fly by air to Barrow, Alaska, inaccessible by road and far above the Arctic Circle, to witness the midnight sun. This was an incredible journey and was something I had wanted to do for 10 years. I kept a trip log as we travelled north and took digital photos, so come along and join us in this unique adventure!
