WOW !!!

You folks are a wealth of knowledge and experience, thank you so much and keep the terrific suggestions coming. I will definitely be ordering The Milepost.

To clarify the May 1st departure, I am supposed to be in Eagle River by May 21st as that's when my duty as an Anchorage School District vandalism protection guard starts at a school in Eagle River. I will be staying there 2 months, then around the middle of July departing for Denali to spend a couple of days visiting that area before landing in Fairbanks to spend 2 months with my younger son. I will be staying at the Riverview RV Park on Badger Rd. in North Pole just 10 miles from my son. He owns and manages the Pro Music store on Front Street overlooking the Chena River.

I do understand the changing weather conditions which can happen anytime throughout the trip and will make adjustments to my driving schedule as needed making sure we are not caught in a bad situation. It's not like I absolutely have to be somewhere where I would jeopardize our safety.

Thanks again for all of the great advice!

dr - BC, YT, and AK chain laws my still be in effect in May and may apply to you. The part of those laws about "must carry chains" during the specified period is what I am talking about.

Eagle River is an interesting place, a touch of raw AK a touch of civilization. Say hey to Santa when you get tot he North Pole!

Your son most likely knows my 2 nephews. Their in a hard rock band started out in North Pole back in 99'. Turbid North They have since moved to Dallas TX.

If you don't like that campground on Badger Rd. Santa Claushouse Campground a few more miles SE. in North Pole which looks a little better mantained. My sister-n-law lives in the development across the street / hi-way from Santa Clausehouse.

RVDude, thanks for the advice on the chains. I have a set that came with the coach from the previous owner. He never used them and neither have I. Hopefully I won't need them on this Alaska trip either but it doesn't hurt to have them.

Superslif, the net time I talk to my son in Fairbanks, I will be sure to ask if he knows the rock group Turbid North. I am sure he does as he has coordinated so many music groups, scheduling their events and setting up sound systems for music groups in the Fairbanks area for many many years. He also manages a professional open mike for anyone who wants to come over to Ivory Jacks on Saturday night and perform. They go away with a professional made CD of their evenings recording.
