"No Way Home" Voting Tightens

Anchorage's lead in "No Way Home" viewer voting has eroded somewhat, but the largest Alaskan city remains in the strongest position by far to host "Early Show" weather anchor Dave Price when he starts his journey Friday.

Did someone say snowshoes?!

The "Early Show" weather anchor will begin his weeklong trek with only a one-way ticket, $50, some technical devices (including a Windows Phone provided by Microsoft to record his travels) and his street smarts to get him back home to New York. He'll be depending in large part on the kindness of strangers.

The question is -- from where will he set off?

"Early Show" viewers have been chiming in, voting both online and via cell phone, for the place from which they'd like to see him begin.

The choices:

San Diego, San Francisco, Newport, Oregon, Seattle, or Anchorage, Alaska

The attractions in focus are:

San Diego Zoo
Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco
Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Newport, Oregon
Pike Place Market in Seattle
Anchorage, Alaska

As of Saturday morning, Anchorage was way out in front, though not by quite as much as the day before, with 44 percent of the combined online and cell phone votes. The Yaquina Head Lighthouse was second, at 24 percent. The San Diego Zoo was third, at 19 percent. It was followed by Seattle's Pike Place Market, at 8 percent, and San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, with 4 percent.
