Father And Son Road Trip.My oldest son is mid-30s and a successful professional engineer. This summer we are driving together up the Al-can highway through Canada to Fairbanks, Alaska. Then we will turn north on the Dalton Highway all the way to the Arctic Ocean at Prudhoe Bay. The Dalton Highway has been made famous recently by the TV reality show Ice Road Truckers. We're going in summer, so there won't be so much ice. Prudhoe is north of the Arctic Circle so we will probably see 24 hour sunshine while there. We plan to see a lot of scenery and do some gold panning. Its great to have raised such competent sons. I'll let you guys know when we get back.
My son and I have returned from 4 weeks in Alaska. We saw the midnight sun, grizzly bears, bison, whales, dahl sheep, caribou. We climbed a glacier. We followed the road north to the end of the road. We waded in the arctic ocean. It was a good time to share with my oldest son who is now a very competent man.
