I would recommend the Bonanza Gold RV park to anyone going to Dawson City. The folks there are superb.

We stayed there last week and the day we were going to leave for the Top of the World I became ill. Gail Hendley, the owner, got me to the clinic in town and when she learned I was going to be airlifted to Whitehorse she sent a driver back to get my father in law. Neither he nor my wife can drive due to medical conditions.

The space we were in was needed for a caravan so her staff broke everything down, repositioned the rig to another space and rehooked. They checked on my family several times a day, arranged phone calls with the hospital in Whitehorse and drove them to town for groceries when needed. When I was released and flew back someone was at the airport waiting for me.

Needless to say I am a big fan of theirs.

Hoghead, Sure am glad to hear you have recovered.
You can't beat that kind of customer service. This goes beyond customer service & speaks of what nice caring people they are. Hope all goes well with the rest of your trip.

We started to fuel in Tok at the RV Village station but you couldn't read the meters so we went up the road to Delta Jct. The Alaska Railroad was operating between Fairbanks and Anchorage as of yesterday.

Hwy 3 (George Parks)from Denali to Anchorage is pretty smooth and Hwy 1(Sterling) is good from Anchorage all the way into Homer. We are in Soldotna now and staying in a small but excellent Klondike RV Park on Funny River Rd. in case someone plans a stay here. Two nights in a row, mother moose and calf visited for a hour or so trimming the CG shrubbery. It's on to Seward tomorrow and all the seafood I can stuff in my face! Bob

Big but on that little park on the spit that is "cheap" by Homer standards, that one that we saw ONLY motor homes, as in C class and truck campers could get in NO turn around. We stayed at the cg on the top of the hill behind the gas station, more reasonable price, dont recall now, still overlooking the water just real high up!

Nothing is cheap in Homer.

We took pictures of the DP that went over the side on the Top of the World road, a real mess, total destroyed how anyone came out alive I dont know. One woman air lifetd out but I hear doing fine. He dodged a pot hole.

Oh, I spoke to several locals about the road, they do NOT want it paved, would ruin the Alaska Experience.
OK.
Again, do NOT pass up BOUNDERY on the road a great stop.

Drove from Denali National Park to Fairbanks today. The first 15 miles the road has a lot of frost heaves, after that the road is good. Staying at the Riverview RV Park, nice pull thru with good wifi and cable tv. The ride in to Fairbanks is easy and only 15 minutes to Wal Mart. Got fuel(diesel) for 4.22 a gallon, the cheapest in a while. Just paid 4.60 in Healy yesterday. Campground is not full and we really didn't see that many rver's on the road today and wonder where everyone is. We were told by people who have been here before that it was one rv after another on the road, we aren't seeing that. I usually ask office staff if they are seeing less tourist and most say this year is not as good as last year and last year was slow. The trip is going great and we are really enjoying being in Alaska. I hope everyone can do a trip to Alaska.

We are back in Tok resting up a bit. While passing though Anchorage, we found some cheap $3.87 unleaded. Not bad for Alaska.

While we were staying in Soldotna, we made a day trip into Homer(and the Spit)...beautiful trip and we enjoyed the day there. Most roads since then have been pretty good...Homer back to Soldotna, Seward, Anchorage, Palmer to Glennallen. Some heavy road construction from Glennallen to Tok on the Tok Cutoff(22 miles of it, north of Glennallen)...nothing really bumpy but sure was dirty with the spraying of water to keep the dust down. Personally, I'll take the dust over a slurry of MUD any day! There is a caravan here now and they are COVERED UP with a layer of sprayed on mud. We sat watching them come in...guessing what color the toads were. (doesn't take much to entertain us)

BTW, the Matanuska Glacier is something to see from the Glenn Hwy. (Palmer to Glennallen) and one can see how much of the glacier has been lost to...well, whatever one believes the cause).

Had the oil changed here in Tok by Tok RV...knowledgeable owner and if you need anything mechanical while here, he's the go to guy. Now the plan is to take our time(maybe 200 miles a day) and head South. Sure hope the Canadians have had a chance to work on the Alaska Hwy from the border into Destruction Bay as I've heard it's notoriously rough. On the way south, we must stop in Stewart and make the crossing (toad) into Hyder and hopefully see some grizzles feeding on the salmon. We've seen but one grizzly in the wild. Every place we been advised to go, the bears have not cooperated...drat! Then on south, taking our time and stopping when ever there is something we find interesting. We'll take the Cassiar and probably re-enter the US at Sumas. WA., OR. and CA are on the list before heading East. Safe travels... Bob
