Bob and Trish:
Becky and I are leaving Greensboro May 1 (give or take). And that's exactly what we plan on; the marine highway up, and drive back. We figure the marine highway will afford some spectacular views of it's own. Sounds like several others are planning on the trip, too. Maybe we can get together at some point.

This June we took the ferry from Prince Rupert BC to Haines, then up to the Alcan at Haines Junction, down to the Kenai Peninsula, then Denali, followed the Alcan back to its beginning at Dawson Creek, then home via Prince George, Hope BC, Bellingham WA, Seattle, Portland, San Fran. Posted while traveling at http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...y-39732-3.html. Also, recommend the older thread Iowa to Alaska with our A128

Great trip. Highly recommend. We did not take the ferry from Bellingham because the dog had to stay in the RV on the car deck while underway - the Bellingham leg seemed a long time to leave him cooped up. I understand they do allow some visits (supervised) and allow taking dogs out of the vehicle (but must stay on the car deck) during those long legs - we chose to avoid.

Did they allow visits on the Prince Rupert to Haines leg? If so, how often and how long can you take them out on deck?

Prince Rupert-to-Haines has several stops - all of which allow taking the dog out and ashore. Shortest was about 45 minutes, as I remember. Stopped at Ketchikan, Petersburg, Wrangell, and Juneau before disembarking at Haines. We, in fact, broke the trip roughly in half - disembarked at Petersburg for 18 hours, then caught the next ferry to Haines. We slept, did laundry, and had a picnic at a very pretty park overlooking the inland waterway during that stopover. The longest leg was Petersburg to Juneau - about 8 hours - no "dog calls" on that (or any of the other shorter) legs. Dog (120 pound Golden Retriever) did great - no problems at all.
