This is the story of your average, run of the mill Alaskan as he attempts to drive the length of The Americas in a 1966 Land Rover.  I hesitate to even state my goal up front like that, since anything can happen when you leave Alaska in a 44 year old vehicle in November.

A better way to phrase it, is that I am leaving Alaska for The Yukon Territories, with the goal of eventually seeing just how far this old truck can go.

I’d love it if you’d check back in from time to time to see where we are at.

    Hi Icefogger, looks like a great adventure you’ve got going here! I am a former Fairbanks resident myself, is that Chena Lakes in your photo? I have a question for you about your Royalex boat repair project, I recently rescued a royalex canoe from the a trip to the dump, the hull is fully in tact with no major damage, but it could use a little work to restore it near to its former glory. I’m interested by your application of Gflex across the entire hull, did that work out okay? My only hesitation is with regards to maintaining the pliability of the Royalex. I wonder if the coat of epoxy over the exterior has affected its flexiblity, have you noticed a difference?

    Hi Icefogger,

    I’m currently writing an article about the history of reindeer herding in western Alaska for Wild West magazine and came across your Lomen Bros. photo of Santa on the beach in Nome.

    Could you tell me where I can get a print-quality file of that image to use as an illustration?

    Greetings, Icefogger! I was googling around today looking for Tom Sadowski et al postcards and very sad to discover from your post that he died last year. I don’t believe I ever met him, though I did know Jimmy Froelich when I lived in Anchorage, but I moved to Fairbanks in 1996 so as far as Anchorageites are concerned I might as well have moved to the moon. I’ve loved the postcards those guys produced — such wonderful and wacky senses of humor! — and must’ve mailed a zillion of them back in the day. Best regards, lj
