X2 on your desire to caravan - I have not found a source, but I can't imagine that there is NOT a listserv somewhere for folks making the AlCan run. If you find a source (or those who have done the AlCan know of a list, let us know!

Another resource for you is a book I bought to start my research: Adventure Guide to the Alaska Highway by Ed & Lynn Readicker-Henderson (you can get it as a ePub in iBooks)
Start one here! Not for this year, but maybe next year. If a lot of people are interested, they can jump into the caravan along the way. E.g., someone from Atlanta starts out, meets up with a few others in CO, then some more in WY, then MT etc.

I might be interested. I'm sure my Malamutes would be

Lists help

When planning a caravan, especially to outpost areas, determine needs and experiences of those traveling.

Not all encompassing but things such as:
EMT or RN
Gas engine expertise
diesel as above
Wheels, brakes and bearings
Hydraulic systems
Electrical
And on and on.
Preparation is half the fun and will enhance the experience for all.
Gather as much info as you can about
Each area you plan to visit.
Know the LAWS of Canada if you plan a stop in Banff or anywhere in Canada.
Pets; guns; prescriptions etc.
Do not guess about anything which cause your group grief and delay.
Know which roads are unpaved. If someone needs a tow, are credit cards acceptable for the incredibly high fees ?
Start a book and adjust as the plan develops.
We have 2 couples ( good friends) in big diesel rigs in Skagway area right now. One, a Phaeton broke down. They were stuck for 2 nights as Freightliner shipped repair parts. They had to leave their rig and stayed at the Marriott.
Just say'n.....plan for most common problems and consider how the person will pay to remedy it and re join the group.

Good info. Strange is I know what is needed to bring a shotgun (or even a handgun) into Canada (Canadian Possession and Acquisition License - shotgun or a ATT - for a handgun); but completely forgot about what would be needed for the dogs. And I guess it is just a rabies vaccination certificate with The rabies vaccination certificate must:
be written in English or French; be issued and signed by a licensed veterinarian; identify the animal (breed, sex, colour, and weight); state that the animal is vaccinated against rabies; indicate the date of vaccination; indicate the trade name and the serial number of the licensed vaccine; and specify the duration of immunity (otherwise, it will be considered valid for one year from the date of vaccination).

Guess the tag around their necks would not be enough.

But all is good information.

I KNOW this is a touchy subject on the forums so if this irritates you please move on

What are the requirements for bringing in a Pistol to Canada F5? I thought that was totally out of the question?

If I go, it will be next year, but the logistics are crazy, and that isn't for the trip, that is for someone to watch the house, cut the grass, etc. The logistics for the trip won't be that difficult.

We leave in the morning for Alaska. Can't wait to get gowing. We will be picking up my sister in Talkeetna and touring with her.
