British Columbia, Canada

Today we had our longest driving day, and Jenny drove for the first time! That's right - up to this point Gabe had done all of the driving (2,309.6 total miles)!! We drove from Jasper, Alberta to Prince Rupert, British Columbia: 697.4 miles; 14 hours of twisty, mountainous, and sometimes rainy roads. Tomorrow we finally head into Alaska. We have to be at the ferry at 5:15am and go through 3 hours of immigration, customs, and boarding for ourselves and the car. We'll arrive in Ketchikan, Alaska around 1:30pm and are hoping to spot some whales during our ferry ride. As of tomorrow we will transition from the road-trip part of our journey to the camping part, and may be without internet for several days or perhaps a week. Family: we will have our cell phones turned on, but who knows what kind of service there will be?! We'll be in touch as soon as we're able.

Hi guys, it looks like you are having an amazing time so far. One should change the title of your blog to Alaska "Bowne"d :) That would be cute :) Love you!
