June 7...I've been researching WiFi availability along the way. There may be some stretches along the Alaska Highway and the Cassiar Highway where I won't find any WiFi
June 19...Packing day! What a pile of stuff! The van's middle seats have been removed and will stay home in the garage. The rear seat is folded down. Boxes and crates are stacked two and three deep in the back of the van, but all are below my line of sight for the rear view mirror.
I do have a plan for packing. The cooler is behind the center console, right where I can reach it without having to turn around. The tarp, tent, and tent stakes come out first, so they are on top and right beside the door behind me. The Thermarest (inflatable mat), sleeping bag, sleeping bag liner, and pillow come out next so they are packed under the tent stuff. Clothing and personal items are packed by the other side door. The camp stove and fuel, cooking supplies, and food are packed two rows deep at the back door of the van. When I empty the first box of food, that box will then be used to collect souvenirs.
