The best thing to do is to get me to go with you......however thats not going to happen.
Been three times and the last two were super. Went in 1973, 2008 and 2012.
It is what everyone says....A real trip of a lifetime. My opinions might not be best as I am more than biased about Alaska. Love it love it love it !!
Been on both the ferry and highway.. For me the highway is the only way. Up the Alaskan and back on the Cassiar.
Took about two months each time and they was plenty.
We drive a Monaco gas rig. Costs......for what ? Fuel is a bit more but did not break the bank. RV parks are a bit difference and not the same quality as the lower 48....for the most part. For us the round trip was about 7000 miles.
On last trip we got stuck at Toad River for about 5 days because of road outages. A real way out place that we learned to love as we enjoyed watching the evening Moose in the ponds along with Beaver, Ducks and Buffalo just up the road.
Bear....bears...and more bears on this section of the Alcan. Took short rides on our folding bikes and found a wonderful and out of the way place. Never heard of it prior.
Camp grounds at the Laird hot springs were fine and the pools were much fun.
We have been doing the RV gig since 1970 so have seen more than a few places.
If you have any direct questions please let me know as I would be glad to assist if wanted.
Have a great trip.....you will love it.....guaranteed !!
