The Alaska Chronicles

Mountains in Alaska

In May of the year 2000, Ted Burcham and Todd Truffin set off on a journey through the great North. Riding in a Jeep Wrangler stuffed with all they would need--or so they hoped--Todd and Ted met up in Chicago, headed north to Fairbanks by way of Montana and the Alaska Highway, swung down to Seattle, and cut east through South Dakota on the the last leg. Todd recorded his thoughts both in a physical journal and in email messages to friends and family throughout the US. This is their story.
