I think you mean "Milepost". Yes, the 2018 Edition is in print. You can find it at Amazon, B&N, Target, etc.

Milepost is essential for a trip to Alaska. Well worth the cost. Get one long before you leave to help with planning.

We went in 17 and had a great time. The truck gave me a little scare but we had fun. We plan on going back next year. I read Milepost and still do. We made only one reservation in Seward AK ahead of time and I wish I had not made it. There is a city campground in Seward thatís right by the bay. Have fun and take your time, no hurry

Also look for a book called Alaska Toursaver. It is a small book full of coupons, many of them 2 for 1 offers for services or stuff. It costs $99 but you could save thousands depending on what you like to do.

We had 2 GPS's going to Alaska. One ticking up, the other down...made keeping track of Milepost numbers easier.

We've had a serious earthquake up here with significant highway damage around the Anchorage area, but AKDOT is on top of it. Earthquakes are a common occurrence up here, so be advised. We have earthquakes 24/7/365. Take a look at this site:

Good using milepost to plan is a good idea it was a great help when we went we left the Texas Gulf Coast in late May took our time lots to see & do on the way arrived in Alaska 29th June. been a number of years since our trip and hope to male it again. Were are you traveling from & do you know what route you will be taking & how long you will be in Alaska. If this group had that info some on this forum might be able to give some more info. Have a great time wish we could go again

I drove to Chicken from Tok in 17 and the road was bad, I left my Cedar Creek in Tok. Iím planning on going back to Alaska this year, the question is should I pull the camper to Dawson City and then on to Chicken or not take camper. Just go on my truck

Unfortunately, the condition of the Taylor Hwy is a crap shoot. AKDOT closes it from October through March, them spends 3-4 months putting the road back together. Don't know the condition of the Canadian stretch from Dawson City as I've never been that far east on the Taylor. Been to Chicken one time, (30 years ago), and didn't really see any reason to go back. The attraction of Chicken seems to cater to those from outside, not Alaskans. Big tourist trap.

In 2014 we went to Dawson City from Tok but left the trailer in Tok. The last 5 miles prior to crossing the border were under repair with fist sized gravel. It took me over an hour to get through that stretch with just the truck. I would never take my trailer on that road. The Canadian side was the best stretch with hard pack with pea size gravel on top. We are planning on going back to Alaska in the summer but will not be making the Dawson City part again.
