The plan

This is the plan:

We'll be staying mostly in provincial parks (PP), national parks (NP), state parks (SP), state forests (SF) or national forests (NF). We're planning (aka naively hoping) to drive only about 4 hours between destinations. We need to be in Edmonton for August 4th. We're still debating heading to Whitehorse after Smithers. We want to stretch out the summer in the southern US. We're not planning on many major tourist destinations or spending much time in big cities. We'd like to get back to Ottawa before it gets really cold so the last bit is rather sketchy since we don't know how much time we'll have.
