    Looking at the console pics taken in the cab - you almost need a co-pilot. :)

    Just the sheer number of those gauges is fantastic, Kevin. And here I am still learning what to tap on my iPad. I reckon if you ever get sick of driving, you would be well on the way to piloting a Boing 747. Stay safe!
    Regards, Andrew

    Unfortunately, there is no gauge to tell me not to be so stupid. Just about to head up here for 10 kilometers. Trailer is dumped, chains are on, wish me luck.

    Beautiful. With that lake on the left and the icy track, that road doesn't look very forgiving.

    It's not, hence the chains. 12% grade down to a single lane bridge, then a 12% grade up to a hairpin bend. Rinse and repeat.

    By the way, that's not a lake. That's an inlet that leads out to the Pacific Ocean. This is a long trip.

    Oh! I didn't realize you were that far out. Are you crossing the frontier into Alaska?

    Great photos, Kevin!
    Which inlet is in your photos, Kevin? I've sailed up and down the inside passage to and from Alaska several times. The view is even better from the water.
