Cool video !! Probably not do that in an RV. Can't do all 50 states in an RV anyway. Just have to be happy that I've been in 48 in an RV. Have been to Alaska. Will most likely go back but not in the RV ??

But now if some way a grandkids wants to go. I be gone. Lol.

My bride and I will be on the road "North to Alaska" this summer. Probably leaving Arizona last of May and heading north. Been reading up and planning this trip for a while now.

We are going by ourselves as we like to run free and loose on our own schedule. I figure that if I can navigate a big rig cross country I can find my way to Alaska.
I will be following any threads posted by the group and might be able to drop in and say hello somewhere along the way.

Alaska Highlights

We returned home on the Cassiar Highway. It was almost all very good pavement. There were lots of blackbears. Spent a night at Bell II, very nice. We went on three really nice boat rides. The first was out of Seward to the Kenai Fjords National park. There were whales and animals and glaciers. it was wonderful and stopped on Fox Island for a salmon and prime rib dinner.
Another trip was out of Valdez to see maritime glaciers. Also whales, Eagles and lots of sealife.
The last boat ride was from Skagway to Juneau and back. We had a bus tour of Juneau and a glacier tour. We were late getting back, because the captain spent a lot of time watching feeding whales.
There is a jetboat out of Talketna that runs outside of Denali that we wanted to take but couldn't because of health.
We came home through the Canadian Rockys at the end of August and had some snow.

Roadside Assist

Almost all major service providers use the same responding vendors. No bz would work exclusively for one provider.

You can map out your travels and then comminicate with each provider to determine if they have coverage where you are traveling.

Chances are high they would be identical. AAA, Good Sam, etc, work the same way x the USA. Your response time is related to availability; time of day and distance.

With 50 years of traveling, I have Good Sam for both travel and MEDICAL EVAV TO GET MY RIG HOME. Small investment for such a significant trip!

Thanks SO much for your travel info. Good to hear the Cassiar Highway is in good shape (that was one of my worries). How did you guys go up to Alaska (AlCan?)

All the research I have suggests that Coach-Net should cover you. Our Coach Net Agent has told us that Coach-Net has service centers/repairmen throughout Canada & Alaska.

Here is the contact info of our agent. She is very familiar with our FROG to Alaska plans. (Mention my name Bob Williams) and she can pull up the coverage file she is recommending for the trip.

Hope this helps
