You have to "winterize" it which means install a block heater, battery heater/charger and an oil pan heater. It's all very simple to put on., then you'll have a plug sticking out the front bumper, plug that in at night and it'll start in the morning. (this is the interior, not sure if Anchorage is as severe)
Great Story, I wish I had enough vacation time to make one epic roadtrip.
What are some other great northern routes through Canada? I would love to throw studs on my Jeep and take a January trip north from Montreal and see how far up I can get.

you could do the ice roads. this road trip threaed was pretty epic.
Awesome thread and pics. Sadly, not all are showing up, as you're running out of Photobucket bandwidth... Try and host them somewhere else.

No, I sold my car last year and that owner in turn just sold it (it's been in Wisconsin) It still only has ~70k on the odometer. I'm sure my old girl would've loved a trip like that though.
I spotted this thread crosslinked elsewhere. Awesome journey.
My own sube is a 1987 from alaska, now in maine, with a burnt southwestern shadow under the old roof rack. True stories are rather hair raising,...it is still a daily driver with not a single major repair. I joked at first of guinness book of world records, now, going on 25 years, it is not so funny.
I like to find the last integrities and solid states showing its realities. Way to go. I could assume 2 liter, no bs with the cyl heads.
to a moderator:
is there a legit share button for this thread, or do I just give a link?
has this car ever been redone in the engine someplace? the drivetrain has me interested.

Every day I see more of the same lowerit/coolstorybro/omgblueFJpic/yourcarsucks nonsense and wonder why I bother. But every once in a while a post comes along that makes me think "AAAaahhhh that's why..." And this is one of those posts.

I did something similar about a year and a half ago.
Pensacola, Florida to Point Mugu, California...
You probably passed right by Mugu... It's kind of at the end of the PCH by big rock (desolate looking Navy base).
I used to go to the same look out as Wimblebot all of the time, too!
Man, I wish I had spent my trip doing it like this rather than rushing to get to California...
Congratulations on the trip and I can't think of a better (legal) way to end your civilian life! I made the trip from Dallas to L.A. in an '03 GTI packed with everything I own in it and I made it a point to go out of my way to see every interesting thing on the way. I probably shouldn't mention that I was alone and my dl was suspended, but that just makes it more fun! I hope to go on more trips like these and I'll try to document my journeys as well as you have, but for some reason I never seem to have a camera when I really need one. Oh well! I award you one internet, two thumbs up, and if we ever cross paths, you got a beer comin'!
Where have you gone, Juniper Monkeys? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you. (Woo woo woo)

Yeah, it was around 7pm maybe? on what must have been like Saturday?

Yes! Austin is fantastic, one of the places I really would like to move to.
