One of my buddies and I (we are both 18) are planning a one way road trip from Milwaukee to the Yukon to Los Angeles. We haven't decided yet if we are going to drive the extra distance into Alaska yet or not. With out going to Alaska our route is Milwaukee to Winnipeg to Calgary via Hwy 1 up 93 through Jasper N.P. then we will make our way to 97 all the way up and 37 down. We do not have a route in mind yet from then on to L.A. We plan on making a lot of stops and detours to hike, and go to places like telegraph creek, Hyder, and possibly Graham island. We are planning to take a little over two weeks to make this trip.
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of alternate routes, things to see/do or a route down to L.A. Also, I was wondering what extra we would need to bring for bears if we are camping. Any input would be great. Thanks in advance!
