The Going the Distance Route
The Route so far – from the Westernmost highway of the Americas to Prince Rupert where we got a ferry to Vancouver Island. 2,200 miles in 6 days.
We’ll go the distance, that’s for sure.
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
- Ursula K. LeGuin
For the Going the Distance project, Mike and Alanna will travel down the longest road in the world, the Pan American highway. They will cover 16 countries in 6 months: starting in Anchorage, Alaska, and following the coastal road for its duration south through Canada, USA, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, finishing in Ushuaia in Argentina. They will travel roughly 150 miles / 3 hours a day, allowing for time every day to process the footage and assemble rough edits, and 2 days a week to research the next stages.
Our “Going the Distance” route (done through where we’ve slept):
Anchorage – Girdwood (40 miles south of Anchorage) – Anchorage – Nikolaevsk (just north of Homer, Kenai Peninsula) – Anchorage – Sheep Mountain (3 hours drive north of Anchorage) – Fairbanks – Chicken – Dawson City – Whitehorse – Lake Tarogga – Prince Rupert – Campbell Lake – DeCourcy Island – Victoria
