    Welcome to RTA!

    My first question is ... how long do you have for the trip? Second question ... what is the "coastal north" to you? Washington and Oregon, or are you thinking of going into Canada?

    Unless you take the ferry, you have to go considerably inland to drive to Alaska. There are no roads along the Canadian coast. You would have to take 1 east out of Vancouver, then 97 north to Prince George. You then have the option of taking the Cassiar (16 to 37) or the Alcan (97). They meet in Watson Lake, where you would take 1 and 2 to Fairbanks.

    MANDATORY - buy a current copy of The Milepost. The 2015 edition will be released on March 1.

    Default A choice of routes.

    As mentioned, it is essential to get The Milepost. If the trip is in June, I'd get to studying it now. There are many wonderful routes from which to choose, though none of these go 'along the coast'. Among other things, The Milepost will give you some idea as to which routes go over the highest mountain passes, if these affect your health issues.

    I've met lots of folk our age along the way.

    Have a great trip.
