NJ To Alaska In My YARIS

Im in th3 process of driving to Alaska in my Yaris. The picture shows how and what Im carrying. In no particular order is: a box for clothes. a box for food and food related things like hot plate and stove, a box for personel effects, a cooler, a water jug, a folding chair, two spare tires, a floor bicycle pump (for flats on the Dalton Highway) paper towels and windexto keep the windows clear for the mindblowing scenery, and a spare bottle of winshield washer fluid. And there is more! I also got a tent, sleeping bad and jumbo delux monster sleeping pad in there.

But I forgot my pillow.


I am in St Cloud Minnesota 1400 miles into the trip.

I think that you will have the title for longest haul. I drove from the top of Maine to central Alabama last fall and also from Minnesota to Maine when I bought the car back in 06. You should be enjoying not having to fill up too often!

Please keep posting pics of your drive/trip along the way. As for the pillow you forgot - just buy one from somewhere along your trip. Good luck and safe driving.

Beautiful pics! Have a safe trip! BTW I was wondering if your butt is sore yet? I don't think I could do a road trip in a Yaris. A few weeks ago my rear was sore from driving only 200 miles.
