    Alaska in February

    Hey All,
    I'm contemplating a trip this February from my home in SoCal to the Yukon Territory then to Anchorage Alaska. I was watching some Youtube vids and one popped up about Jeeping Alaska in the winter and I thought WOW!
    I want to do this. I'm thinking no more that a couple of hundred miles a day, I want to see where I am and I think there's about 5 hours of light a day. I'm also thinking it will take a month or so.
    I'm in the very early planning but from what I can tell it's doable.
    Has anyone else done a trip like it?

    Any advice?

    Don,

    My advice is to read To Build A Fire by Jack London before you embark on this adventure.

    Sounds awesome though!

    That's actually what inspired this. It looks like every 4 years they do it in winter...
    I've been watching videos all morning about trips in the Yukon and Alaska in the winter...
    So spectacular..
    It's a must do for me

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
