Has anyone done the ferry to AK? Can we load our 37 foot MH and ride part of the trip? Is it fun?

I have carried my shotgun across the border on the last 4 trips. No sweat at all.

That's true about the shotguns. But we were in Alaska over 5 months last year. And the only way to renew the 2 month permit is to drive back to Canada which in most cases would be the Yukon. That would've meant for us to renew twice. Not really cost effective when you factor in the price of diesel.

PS- is the $25 for shotgun permit in US or CD?

That's a cool plan. Maybe plan on hitting Yellowstone & Glacier again on the way back if it's later in the year. Especially Yellowstone in the fall...it's beautiful. Don't forget Banff & Jasper on the icefields parkway in the canadian rockies either on the way up...or back. As far as a budget goes..it is what it is. No telling waht the price of fuel will be by your time frame, but it won't be cheap...BUT it's worth every penny!!!!!

No need to renew the Canadian permit while in AK. The permit is only required for Canada. Basically you are using the permit to transit Canada. The permit has no value in AK.

Let the permit expire, enjoy your time in AK, obtain a new permit at the Canadian border on your way out of AK.

My bad. You're absolutely correct.

Only because I have a house in AK and one in OH so I have had to cross the border a few times.

The files will be right below my post, all you need to do is click on them and they will open for you.

My iPad is set to show attachments but it does show them. Maybe someone else here knows how to see them on an iPad.

The trouble is the files don't show up at all when using iRV2 app so nothing to open with Acrobat. They only show when viewing the post with Safari or similar program.

We left the Caravan in Chicken and went over the top highway to Dawson City. It took most of the day, with the ferry ride at Dawson. We stayed one day and two nights in Dawson. We drove to Whitehorse in one day ( about 300 plus miles). Met the caravan in Whitehorse and went to Skagway. The caravan stopped one night in BeaverCreek while we were in Dawson so we did not miss much. The Alcan from Whitehorse to Destruction Bay was terrible. By doing the Top of the World we missed it. Would do the same thing again.
