17th of Jan 2018 was my last working day in a corporate cubicle and I immediately started to refine on the bigger plans in place.
So the route would take us from Alaska, post landing in Anchorage, head North towards the Dalton Highway and would eventually end at a place called Deadhorse, which would then allow a secured access to the Arctic Ocean.
The Dalton Highway is the 6th Most Dangerous Road in the World with extreme weather, poor visibility, difficult terrain, steep grades, isolation, and wildlife
The plan was done in such a way that we would come back to Fairbanks, crossover across into Dawson City in Canada, riding over the Top of the World Highway and hook up to the Dempster Highway, a little outside of Dawson City. This is an uncategorized dangerous road and this Dempster Highway would end up in a place called Inuvik.
From there, 100 miles would lead us to the northernmost tip of Canadian habitation, called Tuktoyaktuk.
Incidentally, the 100 miles was just created after over two decades of struggle by the local habitants there, which eventually connected Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk and it was opened only in 2017 November. So by 2018, we would be the first Indians and amongst the very first travelers on motorcycle to reach this place.
The plan was prepared in such a way that we would come down to Vancouver, where my wife would join in an effort to showcase Couple Goals Couple Travels http://www.instagram.com/cogocotravels/, and stay along with me through the distance between Canada and the US before flying out of San Francisco.
The route was specifically planned in such a way that we would tour most of the interesting places of the US, riding out of Vancouver, going up towards The Banff and Jasper National Park, winding down towards Calgary and crossing over into Montana and traveling across the States of Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and reaching Michigan. From Detroit, Michigan, we would ride across into Canada to view the most beautiful Niagara Falls from the Canadian side, and then enter Buffalo into the State of New York, ride across the States of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, Delaware, Tennessee, Arkansas and into Texas.
This would be a major hub to meet up with a lot of friends, particularly, Venky Medicharla, who has been and continues to be one of the strongest support for my adventures.
From Texas, we would then head out towards New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and finally into California. My wife Anitha would fly back home from San Francisco.
