Jumping from the Trip Planning page to this is a milestone... The trip begins in a few weeks. I am trying to get all the ducks in a row but at the start those outliers will be abandoned!  I hope to post whenever possible as well as on a blog (my first attempt) http://alaskan-yukon...ip.blogspot.com

In the photo the camper has a canoe on it.... we are going boatless this trip so to keep it less complicated. 

One good sign though is the new truck has started to talk to me... indeed.... wants to be called 'Max" ...and so it goes. Will report in eventually.

Nice start to your blog. We hauled our canoe on the 2011 Denali trip and all I got for it was an added BC ferry charge.

It looked good up there but didn't use it.Where we had planned to stay and use it the road,Cassiar was closed below Deese Lake several places due to slides across the road.

 I am anxious to start viewing your posts of the trip.

Enjoy.

Frank

We found these two books VERY helpful...

 

The MILEPOST (our main go to book)

https://www.themilepost.com

 

and

 

Alaskan Camping by Mike & Terri Church

http://www.rollingho...com/authors.htm

 

In 2015, we did 52 nights in our '08 ATC Cougar.  The round trip from Kalamazoo, MI was 11,555 miles.

 

Here in Michigan (and probably the entire USA), our local micro-breweries also have food.

 

In Whitefish, Yukon, at Yukon Brewing, it is just a beer store, only buy beer, a big disappointment to us.  Maybe all of CA is that way??

 

Mike

Have a great trip! I'm looking forward to reading about your adventures. The little 2.8 sounds like it was a good choice. I remember when you were debating if it was the right call.
