    Peter:

    Ditto, to everything Dave just said. A truly epic report! Speaking from the perspective of a fellow scrivener, you're doing a fantastic job of conveying the spirit of the experience, and...

    Since you've said you're not hikers, sure, I'd say that should be enough for Banff and Jasper--but you should consider a night in Yoho as well. It's right next door, after all, and Emerald Lake is...

    Hey, Peter

    Good show--I've been looking forward to reading about your Alaskan adventures. (Me, and everyone else, I'm sure!) Your report is already bringing back memories. Nice looking Jeep; I'd...
  9. Don't be too quick to dismiss Canada

    Hello!

    If the trans-border car rental is the only major fly in the ointment for your original 1st option, there's a way to make that work. Most major rental agencies WILL allow you to take their...

    It's downright inspirational! Pity that so many of the photos have that Photo Bucket watermark; I assume that's a photo hosting site. Are the images unretrievable?

    Effective yesterday, there's a new freeway in Metropolitan Phoenix: the South Mountain Freeway, which completes a larger project called the Loop 202, the innermost of several more-or-less concentric...
  14. Remember the Wolfman?

    The towers in Albuquerque look to be radio broadcast antennas (IMHO). I wonder if sparsely populated states like New Mexico and Montana allow higher wattage radio transmissions--which would increase...
  15. What's up with the antennas?

    Hi, Donna

    Kudos for a smooth trip and a nice report! But you've piqued my curiosity: what exactly happens to your truck when you pass by large clusters of antennas? And what sort of antennas? Cell...

    The Apache Trail (AZ 88) between Roosevelt Dam and Tortilla Flat is one of my favorite drives in the state--but I drive a Jeep with reasonably good clearance. There's a 20 mile section of...

    The El Tovar is a beautiful old hotel, a little worn around the edges after a hundred years, but--location, location! If staying there, specifically, is a must, book it soon, because they fill up as...
