    Default To Alaska - June - July 2009

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    You lot are having a bad affect on me. I now find I am actually doing some PLANNING!! Have never undertaken a planned trip before. Have always flown with the wind.

    I will however stop short of creating an itenary... for the time being.

    Well here goes... Is there anyone here who has driven the Klondike Highway on their way to or from Alaska - from Whitehorse to Tok or Tok to Whitehorse, via Dawson City?

    I would very much like to know if this is doable in a standard vehicle at that time of year? It will most likely be something like a Dodge Caravan.

    Even if it is advisable?

    For a senior female travelling with the sole company of her tent, sleeping bag, stove and fridge?

    Looking forward to hearing from anyone who has done this.

    Lifey who will have lots more questions between now and when she departs

    Several of the regulars on this Forum are residents of the NW Territories or Alaska -- and so they drive this route many times a year. Yes, your vehicle will be fine.

    Really Mark??

    In that case, my question should include the highway known as Deh Cho Route and the road to Yellowknife - Highway 3. Would just love to go and see Yellowknife.
