  1. Thought I would post an update. We have changed the route, a little!! Due to the rain & snow in the north & north west, I checking those roads for any problems. Using AAA for suggestions The biggest change, from Victoria we will travel north/west to Port Hardy. Take a Ferry to Port Rupert. Then connect to our original route. This 10 hour Ferry ride, will save me about 3 days of driving. I have contacted a Travel Agency, Knightly Tours, the put together a Custom day by day tours for our time, about 3 weeks. I think this is going to work our great for us. I had a problem getting camp site in Jasper, BC. Looks like they have several camp sites/grounds under construction or closed for a time this summer. We are know about 6 weeks from leaving, so it is getting real. Almost every day thinking, what am I missing for this adventure!,,, More as we get closer.

  10. We are planning a trip to Alaska for around June of 2019 for about 60 to 70 days round trip. I have a MilePost book, and was looking at the Suggested route #4 to go up and a different route coming back. Would like to see if a small group of 6 or less, would like to travel together. We will be newly retired. We live in Southern Illinois, and would like to meet this year. Would not mind going with a family. We are fairly new to the TT world. We have a 24 ft TT. We are planning 3 or 4 short trips between now and then, could meet up.
