    Have you thought about British Columbia? Canada is an amazing place to vacation and has so many opportunities and adventures. I mentioned British Columbia because that is closer to Nevada but Alberta is just as close and amazing. Plus the Canadian dollar is lower than the U.S. dollar so it is a little more reasonable. Okay why B.C.? Let's start with Vancouver Island. You can spend 2 months exploring Vancouver Island and still feel like you need to go back and see the rest of it. It has culture (theater and plays, gardens) as well as adventure (whale watching, hiking, boating) and it has plenty of opportunities to socialize. To visit British Columbia is like telling folks to visit the 6 western states. That is a relative comparison as to the size of British Columbia. There are places you can stay for 2 to 3 weeks and have plenty to see and do before continuing on and exploring more of this amazing country. On our last anniversary trip we drove the Cassiar Highway and saw 32 bears (both black and grizzly) plus an abundance of other wildlife. If you travel to Northern B.C. you can actually access Alaska by car (the small town of Hyder Alaska as well as going a little further and visiting Skagway. But even if you stay in southern B.C. you will not be disappointed. They have hot springs to relax in, parks to hike in, rivers to fish and kayak in, and some of the nicest folks in the world. And no I am not from B.C. I have vacationed there and I do enjoy the majestic beauty that is encompassed there. I am actually an Alaskan so for me to say that B.C. is beautiful is a compliment because I live in God's most amazing paradise in the world. And no I don't think you should visit Alaska until you have at least six months to dedicate to your vacation. And that will only allow you to visit a third of the state.

    Hi, and Welcome to the Great American Roadtrip Forum.

    I too, was thinking about Canada. So many great campgrounds. I camped in a campyground right by Lillooet, where several older folk were camping for up to four weeks. Even though I was only there for a day or so, I had a great time. Not sure if there were hookups, as I was tent camping. There are many attractions close to there.

    I was also thinking of Alaska. Eight or nine weeks makes a nice trip up there. Mine took me all the way to Pudhoe Bay. It definitely would be that sort of place. But then a place like Whitehorse in the Yukon would be as well. At Whitehorse nearly all the campers were there for extended periods. There was a real community feeling which drew the newcomer in without delay.
