I have been planning this Alaksa trip for five months.
I've made egg mods, bought tickets, made reservations, got passport, gun permits, fishing licenses... all that.
But I finished everything two weeks ago!
So for the last two weeks I have been a basket case of anticipation.
Have you ever over planned or planned too soon?
I have been planning a 3-4 month excursion now for months, getting the Casita
set up like I want it, loading what I consider essentials, then unloading what I decide I may not need, trying to keep my "stuff" about 350 pounds. I leave next week and even though I have obsessed over the tug and tow, I am still not sure which direction to even go.
As for my trip plans, perhaps they are somewhat overly ambitious. First, I thought I'd wander about due west from Florida, fishing some in the panhandle, then casually drift towards the Texas coast, and on towards Grand Canyon, Death Valley, up the California coast towards BC and pick up the Alcan Highway to Fairbanks, and, maybe even pull the Casita
further north to the Arctic Circle. On the way back either through Canada or across the northern US, down the Mississippi Valley to St Louis and back to Florida.
But, after looking at the temps in the SW I have about decided to do the exact reverse and save the SW towards the end of September and October, when it should be cooler.
I am leaving mid week of next week, later than I originally intended and have about decided to do the exact reverse, heading first north and later west. Well, I have until Wednesday or Thursday, Likely July 1st, to decide.
