I have done the Alan twice. My best advice is make sure all tires are up to par and bring a spare for the spare. The roads are rough in tires. Make sure you are comfortable changing your own because you'll be waiting a hot minute for AAA. Also you might have to drive a little bit on a flat. Slow of course. Be mindful of pull offs. There are few and far in between. Good luck. Best drive I've ever done with the family!

Ya'll are really making me miss Alaska!

A super-fun trip out of Anchorage is to ride the scenic train trip to Seward then hop on one of the small ships for a day trip out to the Kenai Fjord glaciers. We saw grizzlies, puffins, killer whales, sea otters, sea lions and too many majestic bald eagles to count!

One negative thing about the Alaska wilderness is the mosquitoes which are the biggest and meanest I've ever seen...and, YES they really can bite right through a pair of jeans!! (I always fished while smoking a big cigar...they hate the smoke.)

Funny story about Alaska...when we were riding the scenic train ride from Anchorage to Seward, a big section is right along the Cook Inlet and they have a rare beluga whale in those waters. When we started the trip, the tour guide encouraged everyone to keep their eyes open for wildlife and to yell out loud if they saw something so everyone can get up to look. We had many yelling out eagles and we saw a few grizzly bear. Then, my wife thought she saw a whale in the inlet so yelled out, "WHALE!" Everyone jumped up and then she sheepishly said, "Oh, sorry, I think it's just a log in the water!"

We went to Alaska in 2014, leaving Florida in early May and returning in early September. Had a great time. We did basically what V-Lite Fun said in post #8. We did go to Dawson City using the Top of the World Highway but left the trailer in the RV park in Tok and took the truck by itself. The road was a little bad in spots but was OK if you took it slow.

One other suggestion. We bought a book called Alaska Toursaver. It has a couple hundred coupons (mostly two for one) for all kinds of things. We saved well over $1000 using the coupons in the book. It costs about $100 and was well worth it.

I'm jealous Blackrock, come by Flagstaff and pick me up on the way. I was down your way last week on the Devil's Hwy, was surprised to see some snow.

Went to Alaska last year, my only tip is if you really want to see Denali Nat Park go in the fall and put in for the "Road Lottery". You apply in May and if you draw a permit you can access the park in your vehicle rather than ride in the Park service's school buses. Permit cost $10 to put in, and $25 park entrance fee if you draw it. The permit is good for the last week that the part is open in Sept.

Have fun and don't forget to feed the bears, they love how tourists taste!

We will be going to Alaska August 1st. Decided not to pull the fiver from Texas. Instead we will fly into anchorage and rent a RV.
Has anyone done this?
