Alcan Rally information center

I'm not organized well enough to think about this seriously, but it sure is fun to think about it casually. Lorraine and I have been to Tuktoyaktuk twice, but both times were in the summer (though the last time had plenty of sea ice in which we soaked our feet; photos are available!). The notion of heading north in the winter, experiencing the ice roads, is quite inviting....

This year's "Alcan 5000" had an optional roundtrip to Tuk. I certainly like the route they selected, but I would take at least three times as long to do the whole thing -- there's too much to see (even in the winter, when there isn't a whole lot of sun) to race through it.

More info to study and drool over at Alcan Rally information center.
