You can see the pics of the trip at my Google Photos Oregon to Alaska Album. You can look at each individual picture, click/tap the 'Info Icon' and it will show you the details of where the picture was taken. Here is a detailed map of the trip.

In October of 2016 I drove approximately 2751 miles about 54 hours within 5 days from Oregon to Alaska. Every night I camped at remote sites that I could find from reliable Canadian recreation websites venturing off road as much as possible, and let me tell you, it was an amazing trip. I took the time to plan well for the trip for just about anything that could have gone wrong and gladly I did. I came across a few challenges that I learned from that I'll surely pass along to others. Overlanding is all about the adventure and learning how to accomplish your goal, but ensuring that you at least make it through, so you can explore the next day or better yet your next adventure.

Enjoy the pictures and map by following the links above.

Thanks so much for posting this trip, loved the photos. I can’t get enough of other members’ trips.

If you get a chance in the future it would be great to hear what you did/planned that went well and what you’d do differently next time.

I, too, would love to hear this, as my wife and I are pre-pre-pre-planning a trip very similar to this one (we are a few years out still).

Awesome links to your research. Thanks for sharing those.

In looking at your photos, are there descriptions of the photos that I can't find? There are a lot, so I get that there may not be any, but just checking I'm not missing out. There were some campsites in those photos I'd love to bookmark if that was possible.
