We are currently in Haines via ferry from Skagway. Took 3 weeks to get here from Denver through Jackson, WY; Boise and Coeur d'Alene, ID; Spokane and Oroville, WA; Kamloops, Prince George, and Dease Lakes, BC and on the Alcan at Watson Lake, Yukon. From here to Tok, Valdez, Anchorage, Seward-Homer, Denali, Fairbanks. Still have 2 months left on our trip, so it is far from over.

Our Mini-Lite 2109S has been great! Enough room for two of us when we are parked and light enough to tow easily, except against a headwind, with our Nissan Frontier. Our few minor problems along the way have been easily repaired by me, so Good Sam hasn't been needed yet (my fingers are tightly crossed!).

Have had some surprisingly good campgrounds at unexpected places, some cheap and some expensive. Right now, we are at Haines Hitch-Up RV Park--much nicer than any of the waterfront RV parks in town and no more expensive (every RV park in Skagway and Haines is "expensive"). Had a beautiful campground at Boya Lake Provincial Park on the Cassiar Highway, although mosquitoes were bad. Riverside RV Park in Oroville, WA, was very nice and cheaper than not so nice ones in Vernon and Kamloops, BC. The Coeur d'Alene Casino had free camping until July 1 with 30A electric, but no water or dump. However, Coeur d'Alene sheriff's office near fairgrounds has a new, very nice (3 paved lanes) free dump and potable water. And Cow Hollow Park in Nyssa, OR, was a $10/night "donation" for full hookups with 50/30/20A electricity!

My "Milepost Alaska Highway Geology" blog on Google's Blogger/BlogSpot ended with technical problems that Google never responded to. I have continued it on at as "Milepost Alaska Highway Geology 2." When I have a lot more time and better WiFi, I may be able to move the whole thing over from Blogger to If you are interested in the geology along your route for 2014, take a look.
