Not to dissuade you (because you could always go part way and then turn back home) but....
Just to get to the Sweetgrass, MT border crossing from Central TX (I assumed Austin) is 1,798 miles
I see you are towing a 5er. 5er tires are not rated for speeds over 65MPH (I never drive over 63) but at 65MPH it is probably going to take you 27 hours just to get to Sweetgrass (probably 5-6 days one way).
You could at least see Calgary and Banff National park before you had to turn around, mosey home and possible stop a Yellowstone and Glacier National parks in order to meet your 4 week time budget -- that would be a great trip in and of itself!!

Glad to have you! Current plan is to meet in Great Falls, MT @ 10 May 2018 and crossing over on 14 May (3 days in Great Falls for last min rig preparation & maintenance)
We will be having 2 "versions" of the trip towards the end. Those who want to stay into early September and see the Northern Lights will stay with us, and those who need to get back to the lower 48 earlier with be returning in early August with Pete.
Since the motto of FROG! To Alaska is "The Journey Is The Destination" we are not planning on driving more than 225MI a day, and in most cases, less than 200.
If any are interested in joining us, please send me a Private Message with your email address and I will send you a caravan package.
