ORIGINAL POST: On August 5th, 2017, the Alaska Or Rust crew departed Fairbanks, scattering in various directions. We’d completed our goal: Reach Alaska in Vintage Jeeps.

If you are new to the site and are wondering how the trip unfolded, you can view trip posts in order, starting with the first departing group on July 21st:

As of August 21st, everyone had made it back home, the last two being Merlin and Brittany and their 1942 WWII Slat Grill MB. There were plenty of adventures on the way home which are worthy of a future post. We’ll put something together when we have the time.

Thanks to everyone along the way who supported us, from sponsors who helped make it happen to the folks we met in Canada and Alaska who made the journey richer and more enjoyable than we could have imagined! There’s nothing like traveling to see just how wonderful people can be!
