We are considering driving to Alaska next summer. Does anyone have any experience on wear and tear on the rig; insects; things definitely not to miss or to avoid? Thanks.

I could write a book but hey, somebody already did. Pick up a copy of Milepost at any bookstore. It is an annual publication and it has the final word on everything Alaska. It covers routes, and things to see. It has advice on Canadian customs and current and forecast road conditions. It is an overwhelming piece of work. You should get a copy as soon as you can. The trip to and from Alaska is one we'll never forget. I'm sure it will be the same for you.

We are going to Alaska in June or July but are going with a caravan. We feel more comfortable with people to guide us for our first trip.

Will go to FMCA in Indio for the rally and sign up there. Saves $150.00 (about) when you do it after seminar and still gives us plenty of time.

We have 2 books on Alaska and will be getting the Milepost in March so it is current.

Are you still planning to go to Alaska?

We are planning on going to Alaska on a caravan this summer too. The tour we were booked with just cancelled the tour today because they didn't have enough rigs signed up (had 6, needed 10 to make it worth their while). Our tour was with Alaska Trek Adventures. We're now thinking about going with Alaska Discovery tours operating out of Anchorage.

What company are you going with?

Oh by the way, we already got the Milepost book and a couple of DVDs (great information in the Milepost)

Thanks for the info,
Ken & Joyce Jensen
