Yes, some advice, get out and use it! Have a blast. The road to Alaska can be trying sometimes, especially just after a rainstorm We went one way, the decided to put it on a boat. Of course this was late 80's. But....I have to add, this was one of the most beautiful trips we ever took.

There are s few people in the forum that are looking for others travelling to AK this summer. Try to hook up. It will serve as a safety net and you can have a good time with others doing the same thing. Of course similar plans are important.

Thanks to all. We are going to get out and use it. It would be nice to get with others going on the same direction, but my iternerary may not match anyone else.
