Gus: we plan to mosey, and will be gone 8 - 10 weeks. we've heard the countryside along the route is worth not hurrying through. The return trip will be by ferry from Anchorage to Seattle if we can afford it, then a stop in Seattle to sponge off of--er--see some relatives, then across the second or third tier of states to home.
We didn't account for how full all the campgrounds would be over the 4th, which being on Wednesday, covers both weekends too. July 1st is Canada Day, which is every bit as big a deal as the 4th is stateside. So crossing the border today may not give us better luck getting campsites. We'll see. Luckily, we have an app (All Stays Camp and RV) that shows nearly every camping spot in the US and Canada, so we may get into some obscure parks like county or city ones.
The Calgary Stampede runs 2 weeks and effectively blocks us out of camping there, so we'll go through Edmonton instead.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
