Alaska next year-

We had a older Safari and needed some work done in Whitehorse, YK. With the wait for parts and finding a mechanic I trusted we won't be traveling in our older HR Navigator. We will be using our pickup and a 21 ft. travel trailer. Getting a truck repair mechanic is easy, every town has one and I have, over the years worked on all the parts of a rv so I can do most house repairs.This will be a shorter trip, about 2 months +/-. Leaving home about the mid part of June and returning home the end of Aug. We hope to see some of you on the road.
We are planning a trip to Alaska sometime after April, haven't set the exact date however we are in Oregon and plan to stay through our departure to AK

We plan to go to Alaska again next year. Really, it is the only place we have been to during our full time travels that we would like to move. Sounds crazy with their winters but we love it there.

Wife and I think the best way to experience Alaska is to stay there awhile, not just make a quick drive-through. In 2015, as five-year nomadic full-timers (meaning we travel with everything we own), we were there for 3 1/2 months in our 2006, 37', Safari Cheetah diesel pusher. We were on electric hook-ups for three weeks. Two of those were when we had to stay at a place reserved for us while doing a Habitat for Humanity build. Most of the time we were boondocked. 140 watts of solar does a great job in 20+ hours of sunlight! Except for a few rainy days, we ran the generator just to do laundry. Free camping abounds: turnouts along the road (Canada, too); rock quarries; gravel river banks (some allow gold panning); the Walmart campground in Fairbanks; churches (just feed the plate).... Cheap camping is also plentiful (1/2 price with a Senior Pass): BLM, NP, NF. State Parks are $15 or $20. We stayed for a week at a city campground on Homer Spit for $15/night. For the same price we camped about 30 feet from Valdez Bay for four nights. We didn't see all the gift shops or eat at all the restaurants that the tours do, but we saw and experienced Alaska in ways they never will. Stop in Tok fo a map of Public Lands Campgrounds!!!

As the OP of this thread I will update our summer.
A big change of plans,staying home.
My wife had to have hip replacement surgery, done yesterday, so no travel plans until late in Aug. or not at all.
So now it is Alaska in 2017. We have been to AK before so we know it will be there next year.

Previous rigs..2 Pickup campers,2 TT's, 3 DP MH's
