The tough part about planning is that the more I read and see and plan, the longer the trip gets. At this rate, I may never get back. There are so many extraordinary people and places and it is humbling just to read about it while researching. I can only imagine what it will be like to experience a small part of it for myself. I know there are choices to be made and every day I will take away a feeling of exhilaration at what I have seen and at the same time a feeling of loss for what I will miss on my journey. Still, as Anne of Green Gables would say "I shall sip the nectar and cast away the sting".
It is pretty certain now that I will ride the Stewart-Cassiar Highway from Prince Rupert to Whitehorse, rather than take the ferry from Prince Rupert to Skagway. I was really looking forward to the ferry ride as I have heard that it is a stunning trip and would add some cool variety to the trip. Unfortunately, it is cost-prohibitive, particularly considering it is at the front end of what is now a 23,000 km trip. Still, the Stewart-Cassiar is supposed to be a little bit of heaven too, so I am equally looking forward to that!

The Cassiar is spectacular... my brother and I rode back from the Yukon last June on it and saw every kind of animal. We are going up this June again, this time to complete the trip to Tuk. We will probably be a few weeks behind you though.

Looking forward to that leg of the trip for sure. It has been recommended to me a few times now that I take the time to go into Stewart, so have made some adjustments for that.
