We are planning to leave KENTUCKY by May10, headed out on this great adventure also.
We FROGS must keep in touch with each other and share highlights as we are exploring ALASKA!
This thread is interesting to keep up with and read of your trips and tips. I am sure we will cross paths with several of you .
If we identify ourselves at each campground, possibly the hosts or employees will direct us to each other?? Do we have FROG flags we can fly? Maybe a rendezvous somewhere?
Travel safe

Took the trip in '99 first year we retired and again in '04. Both times we had Lance truck campers. Loads of fun. As mentioned above, go up on the Alaska Hwy. and return on the Cassier. We took side trips to Haines, Dempster Hwy, Telegraph Creek, Prince Rupert, Hyder/Stewart. and Kitimat. A couple of neat sites not mentioned yet: Ice Museum in Fairbanks and the huge aluminum smelter at Kitimat.
We came back in '04 via Top of the World but it was closed due to a fire. At midnight they opened the road and we drove through the fire in the dark. No scenery but it was neat seeing all the burning trees. No stops were allowed but we had to stop a couple of times for potty breaks as did everyone else. Took the ferry across the Yukon to Dawson City which we enjoyed a lot. From the dome at Dawson we could see smoke from fires in AK and Yukon. Around 2pm the fires all "blew up" about the same time and huge brown mushroom clouds formed at each one. It was an unbelievable sight.
Now that we have the Lexington I am really starting to get the bug to go again.
Don't rush. We left Fla. early May and returned home end Oct.

Laird Hot Springs, BC before you get to Watson Lake is a worthwhile stop. Have driven it 4 times and every trip is different! Enjoy!

FYI...there are no good RV parks in the immediate vicinity of Calgary. If you do plan on staying around here try NW of the city for the town of Cochrane. There is a nice little site there (Bow River CG) on the side of the Bow River. Town has pretty much all of the amenities you'd need for a break in traveling. A little further up Hwy 22 (The Cowboy Trail) is Sundre. The best RV Park there is Coyote Creek RV resort.

We will overnight in Shelby, Mt and try to make it to Rocky Mountain House but Sundre looks like a nice place to stop as well.
If we were to stay on Highway 2 I was looking at a place in Red Deer. RV There Yet Campground
Then a place in Taylor.

Peace Island Park | District of Taylor
We will have found our road pace by then I hope and I might not get to Alaska as there is so much beautiful places to see in Canada.
