Jodie & John – RV Adventure Videos
continued from June 12th
The highway is in good shape, the only problem is that Alaska is a long way from almost everywhere! You’ll need a good six weeks to see the highway and Alaska. Of course, three months is always better. It helps if you don’t have that time consuming problem called a job! If you only have a couple of weeks to see Alaska it would be best to fly to Anchorage and rent an RV. ABC Rentals are a good choice. You can see a lot of Alaska in two weeks if you start in Alaska, not in Chicago!.
The first thing you should do before you leave for Alaska is pick up a copy of the Alaska Mile Post. It’s a large book that lists every mile of every hightway you will be driving on in British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska. We usualy keep it right on the dashboard. The book will tell you were the next campground is, the next fuel stop, historical info and more. It is so percise it will tell you that a river goes under the highway at Mile 760 and the fish in that river average 18-inches in length! Now that’s covering everything.
You never have to worry about running out of fuel on the highway. There is an “oasis” of sorts at least every fifty-miles or so.
To be continued next Thursday …………
