One of the easier routes from the NE would be to cross into Canada at Pembina/Emerson crossing. That would be I 29 north from Grand Forks N.D. continue on to Winnipeg, then west on the # 1 to the junction of the yellowhead hwy. (#16). From there continue on #16 (yellowhead) all the way to Edmonton, Alberta. From Edmonton west on yellowhead to junction of #43, #43 all the way to Dawson Creek which is mile 0 of the Alaska Hwy. Enjoy

During our trip out west in 2011 we met several couples who were headed to Alaska. Two couples were taking the ferry at Prince Rupert together. They were going to get off the ferry at several places for a few days each. They had checked the cruise ship schedules and scheduled their stops around the cruise ships to avoid the cruise ship crowds.

Yukon Don, your right about the log mention on message. I started last night and could not put it down and I am still not finished. Thanks

Check out Traveler's Guide to Alaskan Camping! Very informative book we used last summer on our trip to Alaska. Also used Milepost & Frommer's...between the three books everything was covered

I've actually gone back and reread it a couple of times.
It's that good.
They also took the coastal ferry -for those debating that option.

We used to live in Fort Nelson, BC (Mile 300, Alaska Hwy) and traveled the roads from there to Dawson City, NWT. The roads are good but can be narrow in a few locations. Be sure to carry extra fuel as fuel stations are not plentiful.
There are a number of attractions that are a must see for anyone traveling the Alaska Hwy. Our favourite was the Liard Hot Springs (although they are more fun when it's -20 deg C.).
You will see more wildlife along the Alaska Hwy from Fort St. John to White Horse,NWT than any where else. We called it the Serengeti of the North.
Our trip to Dawson City is still the most memorable of all our trips. Unfortunately we spent too much time enjoying the sites and wern't able to get into Alaska other than a short jaunt over to Skagway.

Hope you enjoy your trip.

KD

Oops... Correction required

Correction required to my last post.
I had listed Whitehorse and Dawson City as being NWT they should have been listed as Yukon Territory.
Oops.
What was I thinking.
My apologies if it created any confusion to our Southern friends.
