It sounds like a fabulous trip ahead of you! I'd definately be up for a trip to Whistler in May. In fact on May 19th at the Van Duesen Botanical gardens in Vancouver is the All British Field Meet car show and on Sunday the 20th is the All British run to Whistler up the Sea to Sky. Lotus is the featured marque this year so I'm pretty sure if your in the area they will have some room for you in the car show and on the Whistler run! If your interested here is a link Western Driver | 2012 Vancouver All British Run to Whistler The run to Whistler ends up at the Olympic Plaza, the focal point of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Be sure to let me know if this fits with your plans 'cause if you make it for the run the first round of beers in Whistler is on me (once we get there of course). We'll get Joe to spring for the second round if he's there. Cheers!

Scott, it sounds wonderful and oh so tempting, but I am just not able to commit to it at this stage ! If we are still in the area then, it would be a great drive !
Just keep me in mind and we can work it out at end of April when I know how I am travelling.

Started off with a bang yesterday, with a beautiful drive up in the hills above LA - Angeles National Forest - with some of the locals. And as passenger I was sitting on the correct side of the car - Felt totally at home !! Thanks Guys, and especially Andy for coming all the way to pick me up ! Love your weather !
Now to just get my car out of Customs tomorrow.........................

I am no longer in Alaska, so won't be able too see you there, however, if you are on the Richardson Highway about 40 south of Fairbanks, stop at the Salchaket Roadhouse. The food is good (especially the prime rib on Fridays) and the owners are nice, they'll get a kick out of your Elise, they always liked seeing mine parked out front.

Have a safe trip and enjoy Alaska.

That's awesome, how long was the drive and which route you took?
That was my very first roadtrip.. Some highlights of the trip... Grand Canyon, Graceland, Corvette factory tour. That should indicate the basic route taken. It took around 4 or 5 days.

I've since done that drive 7 more times and will be doing number 8 in a couple months time. Each time a slight variation to the route is taken to take into account current weather conditions and fun places to see :)

This sign just makes you want to drive a Lotus doesn't it?

Adds to my desire to go to the other extreme. Tierra del Fuego!
One trip at a time !!! Going down though the Andes to Tierra del Fuego is my next trip !!! This is just a warm up in a country where you speak English - My spanish language guide is in my car right now !!

What a great journey. No more complaints about the Elise being a daily driver!

Love that Aussie Elise logo.
