I wanted to start a new thread here to help for the people including ourselves traveling up to Alaska this summer (2016). Just received my 2016 Milepost, the 2014 Mike & Terri Church Alaskan Camping book. But I want somewhere other travelers can update more in real time on such things as:
~ A major road re-building projects along the Alcan or any of the other major roads that would effect Alaska bound RVers.
~ Campground information that might be incorrect in the new Milepost.
~ Updates off the Sani-dumps
website that are not correct. Many don't list a price, or are 5 years old.
~ Arriving at certain campgrounds Provençal, State or private that are full, closed or under construction.
~ Fuel prices, both regular and diesel. Or updates on stations that were listed in the Milepost, but are now closed. Or limited hours.
~ Road conditions, that might not been reported on the 511 website
or need more detail to fellow RVers about approaching road issues with more detail from another set of eyes. RVers see or handle bad road conditions differently than the state worker who might be the one plugging in the 511 report.
~ Pull-offs that are good for a quick overnight stay. Or report where there was once a good spot, now has a "No Over Night Parking Sign".
~ Visitor Centers that have limited hours, or are not open for this season.
~ Or anything else that might be of interest.
Here is to safe travels to everyone heading north this summer.
