Monte -
Gotta take a look at this one - but I suspect it's a lot less "wilderness" 
right now than you think.  Someday though ----

Also keep in mind that it's along the northern tier - and weather will be a 
LARGE factor.

Don't forget the Trans-Canada Trail - a friend of ours did most of the main 
trunk last year (all but about 200 miles).  The whole TCT is billed at 
17,250 km (over 10K miles), but that includes several "branches" one of 
which goes way up into the Yukon.  Downside is that it's a "multi-use" 
trail, mostly for snowmobile use.

Walk softly - and longly,

eliminates dreams, goals, and ideals and lets us get straight to the
business of hate, debauchery, and self-annihilation." -- Johnny Hart
