Beautiful country. I have spent many years in Alaska while in the Coast Guard. I drove back from Homer in April of 88. The ground is still frozen in April, the roads are in better shape when the ground is frozen but that was a while back, they have probably made improvements since then and probably more cars on the road now. Wildlife was abundant and had to stop more than once to let the buffalo clear the road. I spent 2 years in Petersburg, halfway between Juneau and Ketchikan, and 3 years on Kodiac Island. That does not include years on cutters patroling the waters in AK and Aleutian Islands. Enjoy your trip, it should be fun.
We came up last summer, liked it so well we stored the RV and spent the winter up here in Kenai. You will have an enjoyable trip and no issue with the roads if you are careful and not go too fast---enjoy the adventure. If you do make it to the Kenai area we are in the Diamond M Resort--stop in and say hello, or if you need something, let us know.
You can see our travel up here including photos on our blog, www.atauses.blogspot.com
Between FaceBook and Wordpress it s too much to add an HOF blog. Feel free to check in with us from time to timely Wordpress or here.
We will be spending a week in the UP of MI area before heading up to Winnipeg for the trip across CA. Plan to take our time with 3 day stops here and there. We come down to Calgary from Rocky Mountain House around 6/14 and spend four nights there before taking the Banff to Jasper route. Already have the PC sites booked at Banff and Jasper. Then head to Hazelton, BC to meet Alaskan Discovery RV Tour group on 6/24. We will finish up in Kenai on 7/29.
